I help women see themselves, be themselves, and step confidently into the changes, connections, and lives they want to create.
As a true believer that all the answers to our true fulfillment lie within ourselves, I serve as a tool to help my clients regain power over their own life. Some spend countless hours and lose much-needed rest over all the ideas and thoughts tangles in their mind. Some want to decipher the feelings that overwhelm them. Others simply want to make sure they are on their right path or living their own truths. Whatever leads you to find the guidance of a Whole Person Coach, know that you know your truth and I would be honored to help you regain it.
I offer experience coaching in these areas and much more:
-Awakening to gratitude and self-awareness
-Living your truth
-Desires for a career or life change
-Feelings of proactivity and creativity
-Spouses in search of connection (individual)
-Adolescents or parents feeling lost
-Children or parents to be heard
-Single parents in search for balance
Living Resilience Coaching
Are you ready to create your next phase of life and would like support?
Would you like confidence and clarity to create positive change in your life?
Are you a wellness practitioner, life coach, or creative who would like support with your own growth?
As a Life Resilience Coach, I work in collaboration with purpose-driven women healing from burnout to reclaim your calm center, inner knowing, and resilient spirit. You are a busy creative entrepreneur and visionary. You may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious, uninspired, or tired. Your inner critic may be working overtime. You need to rest, allowing yourself to relax, opening to new possibilities.
Perhaps you need to reframe dimensions of your heart, mind, or life to create new possibilities in your personal life or business. You'd like to explore your options, deepen and clarify your life vision, and are open to new possibilities. Your creative imagination is activated. You know that your inner work impacts your life, work, and play. You are on a journey of growth.
There are also challenges. Maybe your inner critic is working overtime, your confidence and clarity at a low. Perhaps you feel out of alignment with your soul purpose. You may be experiencing anxiety and overwork. Or physical, emotional, spiritual, or compassion burnout. You wonder "where am I in this picture?" Yet you know that taking time for yourself and focusing on your inner well-being alleviates stress and helps you reconnect with your heart's knowing and clarity.
We work together integrating heart-centered, collaborative dialogue and compassionate inquiry to help you ground in your inner knowing, facilitate your creative process, as you identify practical next steps to express the changes you envision.
I enjoy my life as a creative artist ~ my art includes life coaching, writing, gardening, creating beauty in my home, playing with colors, and photographing flowers and nature. I love spending time just relaxing at home or out in nature walking with my golden-hearted dog Ginger.

What is your personal challenge?
My niche in coaching is in taking a holistic approach to working with people on exploring their ideal life through a framework I call 'Prepare to be lucky.' This framework starts with 5 Principles starting with Principle 1: Dream. Dream BIG. Book a discovery session with me and I'll share with you the remaining 5 principles as we discuss working together.
I also work with teams looking to transform their organizations. Using a highly inclusive process I call the 'Discovery Team Process', I work with founders, team leaders, executives and other leaders in for profit, non profit, and entrepreneurial ventures looking to transform their organizations centered around a strong value system, compelling vision, and clear mission.
Having walked the walk, working globally in all three sectors, I look forward to working with you to find your focus, set your goals, and guide you to success.
Mostly though, it is the people along the way who have mentored guided, led, and coached me that have helped me become the person I am.
I love exploring new places and ideas - and getting to know people from all walks of life.
I have worked for a wide range of new ventures, for profit, and not for profit organizations in the U.S., France, Monaco, Finland, and Tanzania - learning critical business and life lessons along the way. Here are the few:
- In leading a social venture that supported the start of new home building businesses in Tanzania, from elders in rural villages, I learned about dignity and the importance of tribes.
- In designing and implementing a technical support center, technical training curriculum, and a field sales force, I learned the value of collaboration and the importance of continuous improvement.
- In helping lead the turn around of a University in Europe, I explored concepts of global leadership, learning at the feet of students and colleagues from over 100 countries.
- And finally, in helping to create a program for children living in poverty that helped them overcome summer learning loss while developing healthy habits, I learned the power of community and caring.
And while I bring these experiences into our work together, I am most interested in learning more about you and what brings you here.
If in my bio you see ways in which we connect, and how I can help bring clarity to your own life as a professional, please reach out to set up an initial (free) discussion. Thank you.
Note: I am a Certified Professional Coach (through CTW) and have also earned the CCMP (Certified Change Management Practitioner) certification, a PHD in Organization and Management, an MBA, and a specialization in Future Thinking.
Ten years ago,
I was a lawyer with my own practice. I had everything going for me: professional goals accomplished, happily married to the man I love, leading a balanced life with healthy food, sports, vacations, you name it.
My Cartesian mind was telling me that everything was under control, that I had ticked all the boxes and that it would be foolish to change a thing.
Then, life hit me.
At age 38, my body was attacked aggressively by an autoimmune disease. The symptoms were so severe that I could not go to work. Even worse, I could not do even the simplest tasks due to fatigue - making a cup of tea could take all my morning energy from me. I was incapacitated… Treatment was not working the way it should, and I almost lost hope that my body would ever restore to health. I was at my wits end. I was desperate…
All I could do, confined in my house, was think:
“Why did I have all these health problems? Why did I worry about everything that might (or might not) happen to a point that my body crushed? Why had I not realised that I had always been stressed, tired, and anxious? If everything was under control, why did I feel lost and overwhelmed by my emotions?”
“Why me? All I ever wanted was to reap the fruit of my hard work and be able to enjoy my happiness and my success. All I ever wanted was inner peace. After all, I had accomplished every goal I had set for myself. I had done everything I was expected to do.”
Tired morally and physically, I heard a quiet, calm but assertive voice that said:
I was surprised by the certainty of that voice, but I was willing to try anything that would bring back my well-being. What I did not realise right away was that this voice had a wisdom of its own. It led me on a healing journey that started from something that I was relatively familiar with - yoga.
Attending local yoga classes relieved me of my stress and helped my body’s renewal. My yoga teacher and I soon became friends, and she recommended I try reflexology. One thing led to another and my reflexologist introduced me to a reputable energy healer.
I could understand the benefits (and the “science”) of yoga and reflexology, but I remained skeptical when it came to alternative healing methods. Nevertheless, out of curiosity and trust, I decided to meet with this energy healer. To my surprise and delight, her therapeutic channeling worked for me.
My healing begins.
During the session, I was deeply moved by the healer’s wisdom and capability to see above and beyond the surface. She reminded me of my innate sensitivity and said: “Stop running away from who you are, and you will get better. Follow the wisdom of your inner self, and you will forever remain healthy.”
After the session, I rediscovered my sensitivity, which I had had since my early childhood, and I could “see, hear and feel” again. At the beginning, it was overwhelming. It was as if I had been struck by lightning. The experience brought me back in touch with my inner wisdom and enhanced my capability to hear my inner voice. Thankfully, the energy healer taught me techniques to manage my energy sensitivity and trained me in putting it to good use, that is, she taught me how to do therapeutic channeling.
This “epiphany” that helped me rediscover my true gift and inner compass has led me to a series of changes thereafter. I practice being in tune with my inner voice at all times and I know that my inner wisdom is aligning me with the will of the universe. I started “bumping into” the right people, experiences and opportunities. One could say that all this was nothing more than “coincidence” but, in fact, it was synchronicity... That’s only part of the magic that happens when we ignore “distractions” and we start to turn within. Following my curiosity and inner voice, I discovered and trained in Reiki, Hypnotherapy, the Enneagram and Whole Person Coaching. I also taught myself to use divining rods so as to do energy evaluations of people and places, which helps me to better understand my clients’ energy needs before healing and balancing them.
A blessing in disguise.
It was only when I hit rock bottom, that I came to realise that there had always been two voices guiding me. One was the voice of my logic, the loud and demanding one that led me to the ultimate deterioration of my well-being. And the other one, that of my inner wisdom - a soft, quiet but powerful voice that always proves to be right; the one that has my best interest in mind;the one that is forever aligned with my life’s mission. A voice that has always been there, but that was ignored and sacrificed at the altar of social convention and family expectations. A voice that makes me feel whole when I listen to it. The voice of love, wisdom and inner peace.
I learnt that for me to hear that voice I had to quieten all the mind chattering, to make time for silence and just listen. Since I had never taken the time to stop and listen to my body and get in touch with my emotions, my body fell ill and forced me to sit tight and listen to its wisdom.
Reborn with a mission.
Since then, I have been healthy and medicine free, I have more love to give myself and others, and the relationships in my life have become better than ever. After years of training and experimenting with my gifts, I have created my own method of well-being, i-Ki Coaching, and I’m blessed to work with people from all over the world. I write books, and I travel the world for talks, workshops, trainings, presentations and sessions.
My mission is to help you to discover, trust and listen to your own inner, innate wisdom and be guided from within. With this skill, you will learn to become more accepting, compassionate and loving towards yourself and others, you will form and sustain healthy, fulfilling and happy relationships; and ultimately, you will find and use your true gifts to fulfil your life’s mission with clarity and equanimity.
Virtual sessions are available through Zoom video conferencing.
Pamela Mena-Romano is a Whole Person Certified Coach, a scientist (Ph.D. in Medical Physics) with a background in Physics, and with years of experience teaching undergraduate students. She is also a certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, and fluent in Spanish (native), English and German.
Pamela has walked a long path of emotional recognition and validation, through several challenges while still being part of the very intellectually oriented scientific world. She not only experienced the typical difficulties of pursuing a Ph.D. and the afterwards post-doctoral research work, but also the even sometimes more challenging process, of being reborn in a different country with all that comes along with it (new culture, language, norms, social rules, etc).
As a high achiever, Pamela knows firsthand the meaning of the imposter syndrome, procrastination, perfectionism, self-sabotage, personal and professional crises, and all the consequences of not listening to the warning signs and pushing the personal limits to far. During these experiences Pamela began to include in her life creativity and a spiritual practice on a regular basis; singing, dancing, practicing yoga and meditating, among others. Pamela changed her perspective on life itself and the type of life she wanted to live; resulting in a richer, more grounded and happier way of living.
Pamela is a Coach that provides the safe space you need to become present with those emotions, that have overwhelmed you, that sometimes have taken control of your life, and that are holding you back from your personal and professional goals. She will accompany you in the process of recognizing those emotions and working with them, to be able to use those as connecting wires to a deeper self-understanding.
Pamela will challenge you to get out of your apparently comfort zone, which will help you get insight, new perspectives and a broader lens to see all the aspects that influence your life. As a result of this process, you will be able to decide what is it that you want in your life, and feel at peace with that decision; you will get the confidence to pursue your academic, scientific, business or personal goals and dreams; and ultimately, by giving the space to all the aspects of yourself to show up, you will feel balanced, at peace, and free.
If you feel that Pamela might be the right choice for you, please do not hesitate to contact her.

As a work-life balance coach, I support young adults and new parents to invest in themselves so they can be more effective at managing life, work, and relationships. I have first-hand experience of how challenging it can be to maintain a balance between work and life. I am a first-time mom from NYC, where the hustle and bustle do not stop while life runs circles around you.
My goal is for my clients to end with a refreshed energy of having felt heard and seen. As a Latina, Mom, and Wife, I know what it feels like to be passed over and to think that everyone but yourself is a priority. To feel like your desires no longer matter. It’s time to put your self first. You have all of the resources within you to becoming your best self.
My Whole Person Coaching Training from Coach Training World has provided me with the tools to support clients holistically so that they can achieve positive outcomes in all aspects of their lives. I also use the Tarot to assist clients in seeking spiritual healing and allow them to discern the next steps. My clients walk away from each session with clear and actionable next steps.
In addition to coaching, I am a mentor and youth developer. I have worked in Youth Development for ten years, supporting youth and families in NYC. I studied Sociology and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Union College and have an MA from New York University in International Education.
