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 bright students struggled after leaving school. 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 in addition to difficulties with productivity, we are also 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.


My Goal

To support others so they can be





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, they 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 training in life coaching. 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 a variety of ways to gain the benefits of coaching - the QuickStart five-session package, long-term coaching, ADHD coaching, the Unlock Your Potential program, and the Your Best Self video course. I was inspired by my Millennial clients 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,
