About Sasha Cagen
I’m Sasha Cagen, an executive and life coach with a focus on helping women 40+.
I’m also the author of the cult hit book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics (HarperCollins) and To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us (Simon & Schuster), and a tango-obsessed world traveler.
My books and coaching have been featured on NPR, in the New York Times and Vogue, on CNN, and many more.
Since 2011 I have been helping high-achieving women (and some awesome self-aware men) get clear about what they really want and then live it.
Ways to Work with Me
1-on1 support to help you get clear about your goals, personal or professional, or both, and achieve them. We make it fun and playful. For those who are interested, I include topics of sacred sensuality and sexuality and their connection with personal empowerment. Learn more.
Strategic support to strengthen your leadership, decisions, and ability to push back, tailored for women by a former Silicon Valley startup co-founder, who understands the challenges we face as women. Learn more.
I’m a lifelong “smart girl” who attended an Ivy League college and focused on traditional achievement–writing for newspapers and magazines, publishing books with HarperCollins and Simon&Schuster, starting a social media company, and until age 35, when I faced burnout and ran away to South America to reconnect with my body.
Nearly 15 years ago, I faced a kind of emptiness, a burnout when my life force energy dwindled away staring at screens at a Silicon Valley tech job that I didn’t believe in. I couldn’t seem to get beyond date three with anyone, and I didn’t know who I was anymore. I had lost touch with myself entirely in the quest to do what an adult woman was supposed to do: advance in her career, find a man to marry, buy a house, have children.
I’d always been a heady person. An instinct to reconnect with my sensuality led me to move to Brazil for six months, and then to Colombia and then to Argentina. All along the way I was reconnecting with my body and healing in ways that I wouldn’t understand until later when I began to write my memoir Wet.
Since 2011, I have been helping clients with a focus on women 40+ gain clarity about what they really want in career/business, relationships, and in their relationships with themselves. I also help my clients with sexuality, sensuality, and connection with their bodies–with the philosophy that the fastest way to change your mind is to change the way you inhabit your body. I believe that we are all creative and resourceful–and when we take the time to nurture ourselves, and connect with our bodies in new ways, all the rest will naturally follow.
