Swati is a maximizer. She encourages her clients to achieve optimal performance, productivity, meaningful relationships and a strong and satisfying sense of being. This all comes from creative and deep self-inquiry, no-holds barred awareness development, and activation of her client’s courageous selves. Swati’s clients are often juggling multiple priorities — achievement, start-up businesses, partnerships, parenting — all the while wondering how to remain mentally healthy, present-minded and prepared for the future — all at the same time.
Previously a business executive, Swati transitioned her love of management and developing people into her second career, as a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, Coach and Facilitator. She believes strongly in her “Purpose Squared” approach — living with purpose, and on purpose in order to gain exponential returns. This includes unearthing true meaning tied to our experiences and making conscious, intentional choices in our lives. She’s not interested in breezing through our days, or going through the motions. Each day provides the opportunity to live deeply and purposefully.
