About Dr. Emy Tafelski:

Dr. Tafelski is a licensed therapist turned transformational coach who guides women done being who they’ve been told they should be and ready to stand in their unapologetic authenticity. She helps them break free from the chains holding them down so that they can rise, finally feeling good enough, and knowing who the f*ck they actually are. Her work stems directly from her own healing journey with unapologetic authenticity that began with countless mornings waking up despairing, with the thought, “this is going to be my life for the next 50 years”. It is her mission to help women break free from the boxes they’ve been forced into so they can live life as they truly are and experience freedom, joy, and confidence. She believes that authenticity is the magical elixir that can heal us and the world around us.
