Caren Osten Life and Career Coach - Serving the New York Area

Welcome

As a life coach, I aim to help clients harness the power to uncover their potential and make the choices to design the life they want to lead—one filled with positivity, purpose and peace. Rooted in science and the connection of mind and body, my coaching style is energetic, authentic, and compassionate.

Life is filled with beauty and joy, struggles and transitions. Nurturing a balance between love, work and play is how I get through the tougher times and savor the joyful ones. Together, we will blend the tools of positive psychology—the scientific study of well-being—and mindfulness to help you unleash change, inspiration, results and find your own balance. Our work will lead you to explore your inner strengths and the possibilities that await, engage in new perspectives and the choices that are yours to make, and embark on pathways to change, grow and be your best self.

As a writer, my curiosity and love of learning propel me to ask questions, research facts, and make observations, resulting in articles and essays on the topics about which I’m passionate—health and wellbeing, mindfulness, education, parenting and travel.

I invite you to join me on this experiential, research-based journey to seek and uncover a life with greater happiness, resilience, serenity and authenticity.

FROM MY CLIENTS
Adrienne W.

Caren helped narrow down my career search, and most importantly offered much needed positive reinforcement. Caren’s empathy and care definitely put her above any career services I’ve ever used.

Alexandra O.

Caren is everything I was looking for in a life coach—focused, engaged and compassionate. She listens mindfully, asks the right questions, and after each session, she follows up with an email summarizing our discussion with related actions step, insights and support. Those emails kept me on track and gave our work structure that propelled me forward. She held me accountable so I continued to make progress towards my goal. I am grateful that I found a coach like Caren and had the opportunity to work with her. Our conversations continue to be of great benefit!

Caren is a kind and compassionate person and a very good listener. She provides constructive feedback and suggestions, using tools and methodologies for self-reflection and introspection which brings to the surface our personality strengths and core beliefs. She very effectively anchors the options for career or life choices back to our core beliefs for a meaningful and purposeful life.

After many years of psychotherapy, I still had some “simple” life goals that I wanted to achieve.  I wanted an orderly and comfortable apartment, I wanted to begin exercising regularly and I wanted a wardrobe that felt more like “me”.  After three months of working with Caren, I have taken large steps towards reaching these goals, and I’m now better able to draw from positive qualities that keep me on track. Caren has the great characteristics of being all of the following: easy-going, reliable, empathic, interested and focused.

I highly recommend working with Caren. True insight into mindfulness and stress management with life skills and advice that’s easy to follow and instrumental in managing through life’s complications.

Julia S.

Caren was hugely helpful in getting me on the path to my own creativity. I appreciated her insights and perspective every step of the way. She was also great at giving me background sources, articles, and links that were always on point. Finally, she bases her approach on what works from studies in positive psychology. I like that she is offering true expertise and I truly enjoyed working collaboratively with her.

Lily E.

Working with Caren during my junior year in high school was incredibly helpful. With all the pressures and drama that come with school, college prep, friends and social media, I felt so stressed and Caren taught me really valuable coping skills, such as mindfulness, gratitude and self-compassion. She is a great listener, and asked me questions that made me think about my strengths, and how to respond in challenging moments rather than just react. I highly recommend her as a coach and feel so fortunate to have these tools as I prepare to go off to college.

Renee C.

Caren’s insightfulness, her reassuring approach, and the positive strategies she’s shared have been beyond helpful! Our work together has been effective, and enabled me to get a clearer picture of my goals and how to reach them. During our sessions, we clarified my objectives, explored options for action steps, and created a plan on how to execute them. When I needed to de-stress and be kinder to myself, Caren helped me with mindfulness exercises that really did the trick. I highly recommend her as a life and career coach!

With Caren as my coach, I gained several skills that are now important parts of my life. She has an organized structure that helps you think about what you want to achieve while giving you her insight and expertise. She is an empathetic listener, warm and thoughtful. Each session offered something new and different that pushed the process along and made you feel like you were always learning and growing. I gained more control and clarity thanks to Caren’s competent coaching.
