Dr.Yasmin Bakhtiar, DMD

Certified life coach & dentist

Hi there! My name is Yasmin and I’m a certified life coach and a general dentist.

Growing up in a typical Iranian family, I spent a large part of my life chasing the dream of becoming a highly educated, professional woman with a stable job.  

What I wanted most was to create a life my family and I were proud of but in the process, I got lost.

Continuous exposure to shame-based learning and bullying/harassment in my training to become a dentist left me feeling completely destabilized.

I came out the other end more accomplished and skilled than ever, but also with unresolved trauma and self-limiting beliefs that took several years to work through.

I was burnt out and my issues with perfectionism were through the roof. I was terrified of making mistakes and I doubted and questioned myself constantly, especially at work.

I felt sad and small.

I thought dentistry was the problem, so I thought about leaving. I saw multiple therapists and they agreed.

 But something about that didn’t sit right with me.

Luckily, through trial and error, I stumbled across life coaching, and it changed everything.

I worked through my baggage and the lingering effects of my trauma so that I could practice dentistry with a sense of calm and self-assurance that I never had before.

I also discovered my personal love of coaching others.

Ultimately, I took back my power and reclaimed myself. Now I’m here to help you do the same and a lot more efficiently than I did!

Why Work with me?

Because I get it.

I understand what it’s like to struggle to stay afloat in a career you’ve sacrificed so much for.

I understand the feelings of failure, shame, and inadequacy that come with it.

I get what it’s like waking up every day with a knot in your stomach, asking yourself “This is it? This is what I worked so hard for?”

I know what it’s like to feel trapped and completely out of touch with who you are and what you actually want (rather than what others want for you).

I also know my stuff and my insight is one of my superpowers.

It doesn’t hurt that I was trained and certified by the BEST life coaching program in the world (i.e. The Life Coach School).

So, there you have it.

If you’re tired of reading self-help books and doing all the things that get you nowhere, book a complimentary consult call.

Your future self will thank you.
