Hey! I’m Nikki Berkel.

I’m a life coach for moms and I am SUPER passionate about helping busy moms move from feeling overwhelmed, guilty, and stressed, to creating lives that are fulfilling and happy.  That’s what we all want, right?

Several years ago, I was that overwhelmed, guilt-ridden, stressed out mom and professional.  I looked like a positive, happy woman who had all her shit together. But on the inside, I was a wreck-exhausted and frazzled.  I wanted to eat crap food, drink too much wine, and sleep so I could numb out. I had lost my spark.

I did what I was supposed to, right? College. Good Job. Husband. Child. Nice Home. Yearly vacation.  I checked off all those all-important achievement boxes. What was wrong with me?

Why wasn’t I happier?

It took making some changes in my life to realize that my definition of success had less to do with checking off other people’s boxes than it did following the path I knew was right for me.  For a long time, I didn’t know what was right for me, so I did what I knew how to do…I showed up.

Then, I found life coaching and started discovering that I had the power to help myself feel better.  My formal life coach training at the Martha Beck Institute changed my life.  Today, life still has its challenges, but I can handle them in a way I never could before.  I am clear about the mom and professional I am. I am more present when I am with my family. I am so grateful that the change in me has had a positive impact on my son and the rest of my family. I am proud to show up as the person I am today, not the person I was pretending to be.

I would love to share what I’ve learned with you, so you can start feeling better too. If you’re ready to see a change in yourself, Work With Me.  We can start wherever you are and move toward a life that is fulfilling and happy.
