Caring for Yourself is a Radical Act of Love
You are constantly juggling everything and everyone else's needs. You feel like you have to give 110% to your kids, your partner, your parents, and your job. You wonder why it's so hard because all your friends make motherhood look effortless. You are doing your best but it never feels like it's enough. You feel guilty for missing your old life before kids and wanting time out for yourself.
Or, you are a seasoned staff member at a small nonprofit organization wearing a gazillion hats. You feel stretched too thin but don’t know how to say no. You are making a difference in the lives of countless people but it leaves you feeling drained with little energy for things you used to love to do. You are totally wired all the time and unable to completely shut off from work on nights, weekends, and vacation.
You crave more energy, time to think, and creativity. Because frankly, when your plate isn’t overflowing with a to-do list that’s a mile long... you are less frazzled, more present, have greater clarity, and can savor quality time with the ones you love. But, how can you make space for what you really want with the pressure to hold up everything for everyone else? Heck, you don’t even know where to begin.
Sister, I HEAR you. I FEEL you. I SEE you. Because I was there too. This is where I come in.
Hi! I'm Noilyn Mendoza.
I'm a certified holistic health + life coach, leadership consultant, group facilitator, and energy healer that supports new mamas and women of color nonprofit leaders to move from overwhelmed and burnout martyrs to embracing their wholly RADIANT self. I know firsthand how depletion and disconnection happen as a cost to constantly putting others’ needs before your own and letting self-care go by the wayside. After 18 years in the public sector field fighting for healthcare access for Asian Americans in NYC and nationally, I now provide transformative coaching and offerings to realign with their life purpose, live and lead from their values, and manifest a dynamic vision for their lives. When not supporting powerful women to open up to their needs and fully step into their greatness, I can be found having a dance-off with my kids, binge-watching HGTV, or rummaging flea markets with my husband for our next vintage score. My family and I split our time between Southern California and NYC enjoying the beaches and sun of LA with the grit, energy, and diversity of the Big Apple.
Noilyn helped me breakthrough walls of fear, shame, and trauma
by providing me with tools in setting goals, breaking destructive patterns, and creating my own path.
