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.
