THE AWAREFUL BEING.png

Do you wish you were able to speak with confidence in your personal and professional life?

Do you have a difficult time expressing how you really feel?

Do you struggle with raising your children according to tradition, but also allowing them to acclimate to Western culture and norms?

Do your children seem “foreign” to you?

Book your initial consultation below so you can build a better relationship with yourself and your loved ones.

If you answered ‘YES’ to any of these questions, then I have good news and even BETTER news.

The good news is that this is a problem that can be solved.

The better news is that YOU are the solution.

Now here’s why the “better news,” is actually GREAT NEWS.

When you accept 100% responsibility for how you are acting and behaving in all your relationships, namely the one that you have with your children, you regain your personal power back.

You have the power to shift how you think, speak, and act towards your children, spouse, coworkers, family, and friends.

Most importantly, you will feel more in control of how you respond in any situation.

As South Asian immigrants, you might be feeling isolated, especially if you left your country of origin and are now living in a brand new country, which is so strikingly different than what you’re used to.

You may be facing challenges such as:

  • Communicating with your children (at any age)

  • Building your business in a new country

  • Feeling confident in a new environment (work, social, school)

  • Understanding the Western culture

  • Navigating between keeping your traditions as well as being mindful of what you’re children are experiencing at school

  • Dealing with prejudices

  • Feeling isolated because you have left your family and friends

  • Feeling pressure to raise your children a specific way according to your norms and expectations

  • Your children becoming rebellious and you not having the tools to handle it effectively

  • Not knowing where you fit in

  • And the list goes on and on…..

I’m Vasavi Kumar.

I will teach you how to communicate more effectively with every person in your life (especially your children).

I am uniquely qualified to help you become a better parent, spouse, and overall human being.

  • I’m a Licensed Therapist and graduated with my Masters from Columbia University.

  • I’m also a Certified Coach and have been running my practice for nearly a decade.

  • I’m a first-generation Indian immigrant, born and raised in New York. My parents came to the U.S. in 1975.

  • I understand what your children are going through in school and in Western society, because I went through every possible scenario you can imagine.

  • My parents and I now have a very honest, open and transparent relationship. They have expressed in more ways than one what it was like for them parenting two daughters in a foreign country.

  • I have a very deep sense of empathy for all parties involved. I understand what your children are going through. I also understand the plight of you, the parent.

  • But the #1 thing that makes me highly qualified to coach you is this—I have dedicated my entire life to being more mindful, intentional, and aware, in every relationship that I have, which directly translates to the effectiveness of our coaching relationship.

  • I understand where you’re coming from. I also understand what you’re trying to accomplish.

At the end of the day, you want….

To know that you did the best the you could do as parents, in your life, and in your interpersonal relationships.
