I Believe

I believe every one of us is wired to live their best life, to thrive not merely survive, to access unstoppable momentum to create healthy, happy mutually enriching relationships, to break free of fear and other addictive neural patterns, to live and love with their whole heart.

About Athena Staik

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, author, relationship coach and consultant, who uses cutting edge tools, neuroscience and recent findings on the brain and intimate relations to support clients break free of a wide range of issues, to include reactivity, addictive love and other relating patterns, codependency and narcissism, and other emotional issues.

For over 10 years, I have studied the brain, the neuroscience of attachments, and cutting edge tools for accelerated success and human change. My work and education is influenced by a wide range of psychological models, with an emphasis on positive, strengths-based approaches. As a relationship expert, emotional intelligence coach, and master practitioner of neurolinguistic programming, my passion is to awaken the best in life and relationship, tap into strengths, inspiring others to make transformative change, and expand capacity for compassion, kindness and authentic relating.
