“When I saw my daughter dim her own light because she didn’t believe her shine was “good enough”, my world stopped and changed forever.”

Hi, I’m Kamini!

Growing up in a small Connecticut town as a first-generation American with immigrant parents, I navigated the complexities of identity and belonging. Feeling the pressure to blend in and seek external validation, I excelled academically and in helping others, driven by the belief that hard work equaled acceptance.

Becoming a wife and mother of five while pursuing a career as a certified project manager, I realized my identity was externally defined. Raising high-performing young adults, I recognized people-pleasing behaviors in my children and felt a deep calling to reclaim my authenticity and self-leadership.

Seeking to realign with my true self, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and self-validation. Becoming a certified life coach, I dove into my own self-work, learning to honor my feelings and emotions without judgment. Through self-compassion and self-love, I evolved into my own self-leader.

Today, as CEO and Founder of Live Joy Your Way and AuthenticMe®Life Coaching, I empower high-performing adults and young adults struggling with self-doubt and the need for external validation. My mission is to help others recognize their true value and stop outsourcing their self-worth.

Your journey to empowerment begins with healing your relationship with yourself. Let’s start your journey together.

"It is a small investment for a lifetime of value. If you're considering working with a coach, do it. You need it and you're worth it."

I reached out to Kamini for help with a feeling of being “stuck” – life was good, work was good, family was good, but I had this lingering feeling that I couldn’t shake that there was more to life – that I was missing something. At first I was hesitant to spend the money on myself but when all the coffee with friends and self help books didn’t put me any closer to feeling unstuck I reached out to Kamini. I wish I had done it sooner…it is a small investment for a lifetime of value. If you’re considering working with a coach, do it. You need it and you’re worth it.

"Kamini holds a heart gentle enough and a spirit open enough to really see you as you are and to hold a space for you as she helps to guide you back to your most authentic self."

Kamini has been an instrumental piece of my puzzle on the road to healing and self-discovery. She holds a heart gentle enough and a spirit open enough to really see you as you are and to hold a space for you as she helps to guide you back to your most authentic self. In her presence, I was able to be open up and be honest with myself, and unlock doors within that I had kept locked away for far too long. I highly recommend sessions with Kamini!
