I’m Sasha Cagen

I am a life and leadership coach with a somatic twist. Since 2012, I have been helping women 40+ get clear about what they want and achieve it, especially as they navigate challenges that are unique for women. I have a special focus on helping women reconnect with their bodies and their sexual energy, using it for their leadership, confidence, and empowerment. My clients have been kind enough to write about what it’s like to work with me. Read from them below.


An Intro to My Work

My work as a coach, author and entrepreneur has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, NPR, TechCrunch, and many more. Watch highlights from my work as a writer and with clients here, and get the vibe of what it would be like to be supported by me. I tend to have fun with clients. We make working together an adventure. 

What my clients say

Working with Sasha as a coach has been really important and transformative for me, and I have worked with other coaches before.

Something about Sasha’s style and experience as a tango dancer, as someone who wants women to be empowered, happy and comfortable with who they are is really unique and important.

I would encourage anyone who is thinking about working with Sasha to give it a try, you will learn all kinds of things about yourself that will change your world.”

What my clients say

“Sasha Cagen is an extraordinary life coach who embodies passion, authenticity, and a zest for life. Her coaching style in sessions creates a space where deep connections and transformative conversations can unfold. She has a remarkable ability to help people overcome their fears to live their lives with zeal and seize every moment.”

-Jade Strattner Nguyen, Managing Director of Yale’s Program on Stakeholder Innovation & Management



What my clients say

“The Turned-On Living retreat was the ultimate capstone for the year we’d spent together. It was both a bonding experience that brought me closer to each woman in our group while also being a safe and supportive space to explore the depths of my soul and my desires for a turned-on life.

Each woman brought such a potent energy that shaped our collective experience and created a space of vulnerability and kindness. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to participate in such a transformative experience.”

-Christine Edwards, Senior Foundation Manager at Bungle, Seattle, Washington, participant in my group coaching program (adventure) Turned-On Living 2023 and the Solo Chica Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires

And more …. I’ve been doing this work since 2012! 

“The journey of coaching with Sasha has been amazing.

I can’t thank you enough for expanding my understanding of sex, sexuality, sensuality and feeling turned on as we have worked to overcome my vaginismus.

–Laura, Canada

Sasha is very astute. She is amazing to work with. She gave great feedback and taught me useful tools to use going forward. Every session was an enriching experience–I don’t think we had a single bad session! If you are looking for help getting unstuck, I highly recommend her.

We hit all of my pain points and I came out of the process a totally transformed person! I was actually surprised when we reviewed my desires from the beginning of the process that we’d covered all of them and more.”

–Stacy Boedigheimer, Review left on Google My Business platform, Boston, MA

Working with Sasha was an emotional and thoughtful journey that helped me overcome hurdles and behavior patterns I’ve had for the last 10 years.

Sasha is accepting of the person’s own personality and specific issues and what works for them.

She takes her job very seriously, is very knowledgeable, understanding, compassionate and has an uncanny ability to understand people. I am extremely thankful for her.”

Dor Aharony, Boston, Ma, review left on Google My Business Platform


Sasha is a world-class resource for people who want to do their best, most important work.

Anyone willing to work as hard as she does to advance the human spirit and our ability to be true and fair to ourselves and others, is worthy of paying attention to. I have been fortunate enough to have her ear a few hours a month, to go over some of my imperatives, and help me dance through my own challenging work.

It can be messy, and mad-dash, and those at the table have to be able to keep up. Well, Sasha does, and she has exercises and mantras when things get intense. But overall, I am most impressed by her deft synthesis of what’s important. She has a preternatural ability to pick up on the things that need focus and clarity. That’s a rare gift.

If you are doing the hard stuff, and working to make the world a kinder, more equitable, more thoughtful place, drop Sasha a line. She’s fantastic to have on your side.”

Noah Linsday, Oregon, review left on Google My Business platform



“Sasha is adventurous, wise, and willing to be vulnerable in her work and practice which for me, is HUGE for anyone doing this kind of work. I don’t really trust people with my personal life information that aren’t vulnerable themselves.

Her sense of humor and playfulness compliments her depth beautifully. She asks the important questions and actually cares about the answers. Sasha is someone you want in your life. I highly recommend you contact her if you’re looking for an amazing life coach!”

–Lindsay Chrisler, Denver, CO, Review left on Yelp



“I entered a significant transition in life at age 50 and knew I would be navigating several sources of loss all at once. I questioned whether I would benefit from support or if I should just deal with the challenges as they presented themselves? There seem to be life coaches everywhere and it’s tough to find the extremely skilled ones with great discernment and intuition.

Thank goodness I made a decision to hire Sasha. Having her insights each week and guidance allowed me to rid myself of old unhealthy patterns as I made a new start. I wouldn’t have been able to see and decipher these things on my own.

During our initial steps, Sasha and I created a clear outline of how I wanted my life to be and look and how I wanted to feel. As challenges and frustrations emerged in my new environment, I was able to work through them with Sasha and course-correct the choices that would not ultimately give me what I wanted. It’s difficult to describe how valuable this has been to my heart, mind, and spirit.

I have worked with guidance in the past and have not always enjoyed the time on the scheduled calls. I fully enjoy every scheduled call with Sasha and I feel deeply grateful for the timing because ‘something’ inevitably comes up for me to work through. Sasha is extremely supportive and non-judgemental, her reminders are from a place of caring commitment, and I love that her guidance is inspired by intuition.

I can see that I have saved myself a great deal of time and unnecessary pain by working with Sasha. It has created meaning in a time of uncertainty and provided peace of mind at the most impactful times. It has been a tremendous act of self-care on my behalf. I highly recommend working with her.“–

“I chose Sasha as my life coach because I had read her first book Qulrkyalone while in college and felt a deep connection to her approach to life. We worked together for six months and she helped me to re-establish my path in living a more creative life.

Our sessions were a mix of talk therapy, reflection, action steps, and a sharing of resources. I did a lot of writing during those six months and I can see now how helpful it was to literally “write my way out” of the dark and into the light.

I highly recommend working with Sasha if you feel stuck and you need a guide to help you get closer to where you want to be. Or if you feel you’ve become less aware of your body and trapped in your own head.

Sasha’s warmth and encouragement came through in each call. I am a better version of myself now thanks to Sasha. She helped me to discover the tools I need to keep making progress on my personal and professional journey.”

Jessica Faye, Rhode Island, review left on Google My Business platform
“I struggle with social anxiety, and I had gotten to the point where I had some serious doubts about being the least bit successful.

Sasha was incredibly helpful in figuring things out and helping me to be persistent and accountable, without being forceful or pushy. Her style, it seems, is to figure out the style that works for her clients, which is very effective.”

–Keith, Boston, MA, review left on Yelp

I have always considered myself a happy and successful woman. However, as I was approaching the magic 40th birthday, I realized that I have so many plans, a long to-do list. and tons of questions to answer. It was in the midst of the pandemic when I realized that I need some professional help to guide me through my own thoughts, to revisit my priorities and self-evaluate. I am so glad I have found Sasha!

I like how my thoughts and questions that I am raising during our discussions turn into playwork and how much more and more playwork we are creating, and how this work becomes a big part of my life, a part of me. It is like re-discovering the authentic, true me and my desires. It is such a relief and feels so healthy!

Sasha is the best investment I have done so far for myself. I love how our high-quality conversations help me to build my quality life. She effortlessly guided me to find my own, unique happiness, optimism, and strengths, and I am planning to stick to those forever!”

Ewa Wybieralska, Rhode Island, PhD-trained scientist, Senior Manager, QurAlis, Review left on Google My Business platform

Working with Sasha for the last few months has been life-changing. She helped me set realistic goals, encouraged me along the way, and before I knew it, I accomplished everything I wanted in half the time. Sasha’s warm yet effective coaching style made it easy to release what was holding me back, and with her guidance, I was able to make drastic life changes that I otherwise wouldn’t have. I’m so grateful to have worked with her.”

—Josenia Henriquez, Providence, Rhode Island. Review left on Google My Business platform

“I decided to work with Sasha when I ended my last relationship, and was trying to find a better way to be alone again free of codependency.


I have worked with a number of coaches, but Sasha is at the top my list. I love Sasha’s “Quirkyalone” and “Wet” constructs. Her approach is distinctive, modern, passionate. She is intuitive, funny, and wise beyond her years. 

She assigns just the right amount of “playwork” to keep you processing and exploring between sessions.

Sasha cares about her clients deeply. She is responsive, and best of all, the objectives you choose to achieve are met—and in my case—exceeded.”

Carrie Branovan, Brand Director, Wisconsin, review left on Google My Business platform

“It’s a strange sensation to describe, but through my work with Sasha, I feel more solid and present in the world—instead of feeling like a passive or invisible observer, I feel I’m in charge.

If you are considering working with Sasha, DO IT (all capital letters and tons of emphasis)! 

You will see so much change in even a short amount of time.  Sasha has a gift for helping people quickly realize what they want and why they’re holding themselves back from getting it.

–Lauren Pollini, San Francisco


“Working with Sasha has been an amazing and life-changing experience!!

Sasha is very genuine, and caring, and great at what she does. Learning tango was not in my comfort zone at first. Doing coaching with Sasha helped me understand and solidify the lessons from tango. I always love how present she is with me.

The combination of coaching and tango has opened me up to a whole new way of being–one where I feel a sense of creativity, exploration, and curiosity.

Instead of resisting and working against myself and my body (like I have done for many years because of childhood trauma), I am learning to enjoy and work with my body to find more healing. This work (which has felt like play) has helped me feel more connection and pleasure. I have so many tools to keep improving all of my relationships and I am so grateful!

Mindy Lathen, Utah, review left on Google My Business platform

“I first contacted Sasha because I was trying to get over a broken heart… but that was just the tip of the iceberg. I was struggling with work and dating, amongst other things.
Sasha helped me put everything in perspective. I was really impressed with how Sasha made me think about my life goals.
I was amazed to see how important it is to simply articulate a goal and think about the steps that I need to take to achieve that goal. I committed to actually following through.
Sasha is really fantastic, I can’t recommend her enough!”–Michelle Braiden, Montreal, Canada, review left on Yelp platform


“When you’re in any major life transition, Sasha can help. Sasha has many clever, practical solutions to get you through transitions– most of all–she cares.

She has a gift for finding all the blind spots. Sasha read me like a friend who’s known me for years. After working with her for just a few months I’ve gone from feeling lost and overwhelmed with my job search, to finding a whole new direction for my path.

–Petra Hanson, San Francisco, CA, Review left on LinkedIn

“I was lucky enough to meet up with Sasha and group at the first Argentina Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires. Sasha created this amazing experience to try out so many things in one week–it’s truly changed my life!

Returning home, my confidence in myself was sky-high: I changed careers, restarted dating in an open/honest way and I joined a local tango community. I owe much of my new outlook on life and ways of interacting to Sasha. I have peace, satisfaction and a true view of my worth.”

–Carissa Giblin, Tampa, FL, review left on Google My Business platform

Working with Sasha has been instrumental in huge changes in my life. It helped me leave a job and find a new one, it helped me have a wonderful long-distance relationship and feel resilient when that relationship ended.

I am so grateful for the freedom and confidence working with Sasha has given me over the past year.”

–Megan Cramer, Atlanta Georgia
