My Story | My Mission
Irene Caniano, MA, ACC
The decision to become a life coach started with my experiences as a mother and teacher. My intelligent, creative, talented son and some of my capable former students experienced difficulties transitioning to their independent lives. I wanted to support individuals like them so I studied executive functioning and general life coaching.
A strange thing happened during my training! I realized that all of us are held back by a lack of awareness, unhelpful assumptions, and self-doubt. The coaching experience helped me see my life from a new perspective at an age when I felt I was set in my ways. Learning life coaching principles changed my life!
Who I Am
I am a compassionate catalyst changing one life at a time
by sharing powerful principles and strategies.
To support others so they can be successful and happy.
Coaching results in clarity, increased focus, improved performance, better decision-making skills, and enriched relationships. Armed with a set of strategies and the right mindset, individuals can overcome challenges and confidently move out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals.
My background includes twenty-plus years as a teacher, degrees in sociology and education, and extensive life coaching training. I am certified by the International Coach Federation and am a member of the LI-ICF, CHADD, Toastmasters, and the Lions Club.
I specialize in the areas of productivity, transitioning, and happiness. I offer various ways to gain the benefits of coaching - the QuickStart five-session package, long-term coaching, ADHD coaching, and the Your Best Self video course. My Millennial clients inspired me to write Design Your Happiness: 9 Essential Elements to Create the Life You Want, which contains inspiration, coaching principles, and activities to customize your life.
Feel free to contact me to share your thoughts, ask a question, or just to talk.
To your success and happiness,
