My Personal Journey Here:

Hello and welcome! My name is Tanya Ouhrabka, a Certified Life Coach, and I’m so glad you’re here. Hopefully you’re doing lots of research looking for the Life Coach who best resonates with you and what you need, so I’ll go ahead and tell you a bit about myself.

My life path began in an alcoholic home, with a mother newly suffering from the almighty powerful disease that would inevitably define all that I was and all that I am today for the bad in the past and the good of today. Sobriety changed the path for my mother, and for myself, when I was ten years old.  Her sobriety began a path of re-connecting to her true self and began a path of my self-discovery through un-learning, re-patterning and self-acceptance in the years to follow. 

Who would I have been without this in my life I could ask myself, yet there isn’t an answer. If there were an answer, it would serve no purpose, for I am who I am today thanks to all that I went through. As a result of being the child of an alcoholic, I journeyed many chapters of my life that were challenging. Low self-esteem and a sense of un-worthiness was the catalyst for an eating disorder in college, and an unhealthy relationship with alcohol in my early years of motherhood. I survived these chapters which have served me well, as I can now be of service to others. Not only am I the person I am today because of it, I’m able to help women like yourself to be the best version of you. I’m championing women to achieve greater self-acceptance, self-confidence, authenticity and self-love with deep understanding of the work it takes to get there and the peace and power it will bring you. You are your answer. The answers we need to feel joy, purpose and passion do not lie outside of us. The answers we need are within us. They are our truth, and will never guide us off course.

We all have a story. Each and every one of us has a history and a truth that we process uniquely from anyone else.  Therefore, each of us needs our own tools for coping with life as we experience it through our own lens. I am here, dedicated to bringing you those tools so you can look through your lens without self-limiting beliefs or self-sabotaging messages. We have power over our minds. With mindset shifts and changes in perspective, we get clarity and power to control our lives.

I look back on my journey with immense gratitude, you can, and you will too. 

My Professional Journey Here:

I graduated with a bachelor’s of Psychology from Lake Forest College in 1994. In the years following, I got married to my college love, had three beautiful children, created an interior design business, incorporated it into real estate and then arrived full circle back to my calling. Although I began a master’s program to become a licensed clinical social worker straight out of college, I took a break which led me to this amazing destination of Life Coaching; certified at The World Coach Institute.

As a Life Coach I work with you to shift your mindset and perspectives in order to achieve self-acceptance, to release the judgements and to be the healthiest and happiest version of yourself.  You deserve this, we all deserve to be happy, and I want to help you achieve it. Together we will stop the self-limiting beliefs, increase your self-confidence and self-awareness, and shift your perception in order to align you with your true authentic self. There is no reason why you can’t do this.  There is no reason why you shouldn’t be living a fulfilled life. You’ll hear me say again and again, YOU ARE, YOU CAN, AND YOU WILL.  Change your thoughts in order to change your life!

Say Y.E.S! to Your Extraordinary Self.
