Mindful PhD

"I have been working with Dr. Monika Staab for almost an entire semester, and I highly recommend her expertise. I never thought I could benefit from Ph.D. coaching, but it truly has been the monumental shift I needed as I am nearing the end of my Ph.D. journey. Before beginning coaching, I felt very unsure of myself. I was lacking tools and especially the confidence I needed to finish my Ph.D. with a positive outlook. After almost 4 months of working with Monika, I feel extremely at ease and so much happier. She helped open my eyes to the influence of small daily practices and how they can truly get you out of the rut you may be in. If I could have one wish, it would be that all doctorate students get a chance to work with her as she is not only extremely knowledgeable, but also very kind, a great listener, and so detail oriented! The summary emails she provided me after each session really helped me at a time when I felt all over the place. Overall, coaching with Dr. Staab gave me the grounding I needed."
