True Fulfillment in a Career is possible only when what we do is aligned with who we are.
I help professionals find fulfillment and meaning in their careers by discovering work that is aligned with who they are.
Through my LOVE coaching framework that I developed, I coach professionals to figure out what they want, and transition out of unfulfilling jobs and into careers they love. This framework has been proven effective in transforming careers and lives of many professionals.
Learn About Yourself
Gaining self-awareness and knowing our values are the first step towards doing work that is aligned with who we are.
Overcome Internal Obstacles
Many of us stand in our own way of living the life we want, because fear stops us from taking action. It is crucial to overcome internal struggles, learn how to reframe failure and rejection, and be able to manage negative inner-voice.
Visualize Your Success
Visualizing yourself having achieved your dream will help you to stay motivated, focused, and lead you to take actions to make your dream a reality.
Explore & Take Action
It’s only through action that our lives will change. We need to learn how to create a career vision that is aligned with our values, and then take steps and actions towards the career that gives us joy and meaning.
“Coaching is about connecting with people, inspiring them to do their best, and helping them to grow.” – Harvard Business Review
All my life experiences led me to become a career coach. I help my clients step out of fear and take action towards doing the work that brings them joy and living a life that is fulfilling and meaningful.
I work with clients to create a vision for their career, and help them to achieve their vision by learning more about themselves, overcoming internal obstacles, creating value aligned goals, and providing accountability to take action.
Through this process, I help to bridge the gap between their present — where they are now, and their future — where they want to be.

“When I first heard Celina speak at an event, I had been struggling to make a change in career for a while. I knew I wasn’t happy but wasn’t sure what my next step should be or how to get there. More importantly, I had really lost my confidence, my sense of purpose and zeal.
A lot of the reasons why I wanted to leave my current job and industry were weighing me down so much that I felt like I had sunk into a hole. But listening to Celina talk about her experiences gave me a powerful sense of hope. It was also clear that she’s uniquely capable of offering insightful guidance since she’s been there and her sincerity emphasized how passionate she is about helping others.
I walked away from our first meeting feeling incredibly relieved that I was no longer trying to do this on my own. I felt like I had someone in my corner when it came to my career and that alone made a world of difference.
Each week, I continued to feel a noticeable difference. Celina helped me to unscramble all the negativity, including that which I was putting on myself, and treat these things as lessons that helped me realize the new direction I wanted. She helped me tap into a part of myself that had gotten lost or squashed out and I finally started to believe my own potential again. And to put fear aside and take action! Celina held me accountable to stick to the actions I had set for the week, gently reminding me that I’ll never be able to achieve my dreams or goals by just talking or thinking about it.
It’s hard to believe just how much I’ve gained and rediscovered about myself as a result of Celina’s coaching. Her guidance has extended beyond this particular career shift but to adopting a new approach on how I live every day and I’ll be forever grateful to her for that. It truly feels like there’s no adequate way to describe just what a difference Celina has made in my life. Thank you!!” – Mary M.
“Celina was born to coach. She is compassionate, warm, humble and quite talented. I was at a transitional intersection of both my career and my life and Celina helped me thru. I had been in a legal career for quite some time and was looking for a way to transition to something different. Celina helped me find my way.
First, she encouraged me to identify what my interests were and then she guided me to formulate various options that were aligned with them. The last step was pushing me to take action to pursue the options. As it happened, what I ended up doing had little to do with what I initially pursued but rather arose as an opportunity that I uncovered along the way.
Celina’s helpful suggestions, incredible focus and unending encouragement enabled me to successfully transition to another career. Celina’s impact on my life has been unexpectedly dramatic. Her approach to perspective and realizing happiness from within makes every day a better one. I have been very fortunate to have Celina as my coach and would highly recommend her to anyone.” – JDG
“Working with Celina has been one of the best investments I’ve made in my present and future self.
6 months before, I’d decided that I wanted to make a significant career change – from science to more creative pursuits. While I’d taken small steps towards, I felt stuck; lacking the focus and direction on the next steps to take or the accountability to stick to a plan.
A friend who had seen Celina speak encouraged me to look into coaching with her and the rest is history.
Celina helped me in many ways, much of which was related to changing my mindset. Whether that was getting out of a funk when I felt discouraged in my job search or seeing the opportunities while setting realistic expectations about challenges ahead, she spoke from her personal experiences as well as her learnings as a coach in a way that I could understand and apply. I was amazed by the progress I was able to make in just a few short months by putting her advice to practice.
Even post-coaching, I find myself referring to her voice in my head, especially when I come up against situations that I previously would have found daunting.
Celina has a gentle spirit and a warm and enthusiastic nature that would put anyone at ease. It’s clear she truly cares about helping her clients reach their dreams and flourish as individuals. I have already recommended her to my friends and I would encourage you to consider investing in your future and working with her as well.” – Shadia O.
“I really wanted to tell you something because I am feeling great right now.
Everything that we worked on during our coaching I feel that I have accomplished recently.
Too many wins to list on a chat, but I have reconnected with my friend group and it feels amazing to be with everyone again, my relationship with my girlfriend is much better now as well, business has also been doing well and I now have 3 income streams as opposed to one.
I would love to catch up with you in a few weeks when my time frees up, but we need to get you out to more people.
I feel more relaxed, certain, and productive than ever before and my friends, team, and girlfriend can tell.
It’s amazing what is possible considering how not good things were before and that was just February.
I still have problems but I am facing each problem with the question, what do I want first, choosing to believe in the thoughts that serve me, and working on delegating and automating as many tasks as possible.” – RM
I went into the coaching process knowing I wanted a new career. I had been unsatisfied with my job for quite some time and living through the pandemic clarified my need to switch professions. However I only had some hunches and vague ideas as to where I should focus my efforts. I researched and interviewed multiple career coaches. Celina was easy to talk to, encouraging, action oriented and kept me on task. Little did I know that working with Celina would help me discover my strengths and find a position that has me using them on a daily basis. She helped me switch my mindset from focusing on my perceived shortcomings and made me truly see the gifts that I bring to my career. – Patti S.
I’m so glad and thankful that I met Celina and had her as a coach. Celina is an incredibly warm and friendly person who always exudes positive energy and optimism. I felt immediately comfortable the first time I met her and knew that she would become a terrific coach, guide, and friend. But it’s her ability to sincerely listen, ask thoughtful questions, and help you arrive at meaningful insights that makes her truly special.
Throughout our time together, Celina was very patient and perceptive, and she has a rare gift of truly understanding and sympathizing with your situation and providing actionable insights on how to best handle the tricky problem at hand. I always ended up feeling more relieved and gained more clarity after talking to her. Celina gave me a lot of practical advice to the problems I was encountering professionally and personally. One tangible example of something she taught me that I will keep implementing in my daily life is the rejection challenge. It gives me a framework to be more proactive and assertiveI, and I now feel more comfortable asking for help, which is an essential life skill.
“I first reached out to Celina about the different career paths I was considering. We ended up having much deeper conversations about who I am and what I can really achieve. We tackled and removed a lot of the self-limiting beliefs I had held since childhood. It is very difficult to find someone who truly understands the stresses of a prestigious professional service job. Celina was very helpful given her breadth of experience. Also, she is very fun!” – JZ
“I was on the verge of making a life-altering decision by leaving my full-time job of nine years and uprooting my family to a different State. As a single parent the idea of actually carrying this out was frightening despite how much I wanted and needed a change—a new beginning for my children and me. I was in complete transition mode and I needed help when a friend suggested I reach out to Celina Lee for support while working through my vision and moving forward with a decision. What I was going through was super high stakes so I decided to seek out Celina’s help. It was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time.
Celina helped me understand and explore my fears and where they were coming from. She encouraged me to come up with ways to work through them by creating action plans and learning strategies to silence intrusive thoughts that kept me from acting. I began to take steps forward and lay out brick by brick my plan for relocation: apartment search, packing, school searches and registration, etc. I started to see that my vision was possible to achieve if I had a plan and I took steps forward consistently, and held myself accountable. I learned so much about myself and what has been keeping me in this life and career rut for so long: fear. I realized that taking a risk was better than being stagnant. I learned that I needed to shift my way of thinking and that today’s decision can change tomorrow and that that’s okay because nothing is written in stone and things can change. Through my sessions with Celina, I gained a new perspective about what I wanted for my life. I learned to “reframe my limiting thoughts.” To ask myself if my thoughts were helping me or hurting me and to understand that my thoughts would become my experience if I didn’t shift my thinking and actions. Instead of thinking about how things could fail, I learned to give myself permission to think about possibility and about how this move and this new life I was trying to build could actually be amazing. Most importantly, I learned to be kinder to myself and prioritize my needs and happiness.
Celina helped me understand for the very first time how crucial it is to understand your values and to honestly assess whether they are being honored in every aspect of your life, and if they’re not that it’s okay to change things. I learned to create attainable goals and to look at myself again as someone who gets things done and is capable of great success. The work continues but now I feel motivated, inspired and re-committed to building a different, joyful, successful, intentional life for my family and me. I gained invaluable skills and perspective through my sessions with Celina. – Heidi M.
“I have been working with Celina remotely over the last year and have already come far on my personal journey with her steadfast guidance.
Her strong dedication to coaching and to the betterment of her clients can be felt on every interaction, even when our calls are often in her late evenings. Celina tailors her sessions and advice to suit her clients’ needs – I never felt anything she was asking me to do was pre-canned nor something she has not or would not try herself.
She had a lot of guidance but was also very kind when I struggled with certain topics or needed to deal with a live, difficult situation. She is very open to share her knowledge and experiences and even helps clients find books and online courses to further their personal development. I can’t say enough good things about my experience working with Celina and know she will be of help to you too!” – Fay F.
“I was so lost in my career and felt so stuck. After having worked in the same industry for so long and doing the job that I hated, I had no idea how I could even begin to think what I can do next, that was different from what I was doing.
Hiring Celina to be my coach has been the most important career decision I have ever made. She helped me to become more aware of who I am, what I want, and helped me to overcome a lot of internal obstacles that was holding me back. As a result, I made a transition into a completely different career and I can honestly say I am happy to be waking up and go to work everyday.
I would not be where I am without Celina’s coaching. Celina has a magical and unique ability to hear you, make you feel understood, and to inspire you to be the best you can be. Her story and background is so inspiring and impressive too. She has shown herself that we can live our dreams and I am so happy I got an opportunity to meet her and become her coaching client.” – Grace K.
“1-on-1 coaching with Celina was, without a doubt, the single most pivotal turning point in my career and in my business.
Celina has a shrewd ability to identify areas of obstacle very quickly and pinpoint their causes. She was fast and extensive with problem-solving and offering options for various operational paths of development.
I felt that her vast range of experience in finance, business, and law really gave her a unique advantage and perspective in constructing solutions on a infrastructural level as well as in logistics.
What impressed and helped me the most, however, was her ability to analyze and resolve problems in my mentality which were hindering me from achieving what I wanted to achieve. The turn-around in my cognition as a result of our sessions became the most important driving force in the changes I made in my career thereafter.
The knowledge I’ve gained from Celina about career development further propelled me to the success I enjoy today. I am immensely grateful to have worked with Celina. She transformed not only my career and business but also led me on a path to becoming the happy woman I am today.” – Annie B.
“All too often we find ourselves hesitant or reluctant towards putting faith in our dreams and aspirations. Unleashing our untapped potential is a remarkable gift Celina is able to reveal from within the recesses of our own thoughts.
It was a pleasure and a rare privilege to encounter a person so capable of giving focus, motivation and ability to create a clear hierarchy of personal priorities. Albeit having engaged only in a few sessions, her inspiration has lingered on and has most certainly made its effect towards a more conscientious career development. I could not recommend such a talented and resourceful person enough!” – Daniel B.
