Hi there, and welcome to Essence of Strength!

Essence of Strength is a self care coaching and advocacy firm that specializes in helping you (and healing professionals like you) learn how to take care of yourself as well as you take care of others.

As you might imagine, that tends to be much easier said than done!

I know, because I’ve been there.

Over-educated yet under-satisfied with my life. My passion for helping and healing others becoming slowly buried under layers of stress, exhaustion, and burnout.

And I’m here to let you in on a little secret: It doesn’t have to be this way.

Wait. Let me rephrase: It SHOULDN’T be this way.

You made the sacrifices. Got the degrees. Worked the long hours. And you deserve to LOVE your life as much as you thought you would when you first set out on this path. I can help.

My name is Jattu. I am the founder of Essence of Strength, a shameless clothes addict (well, so says my best friend, I prefer the term ‘aficionado’), and a retired physician turned life coach and self-care advocate.

I’m here to help you start taking better care of yourself so that you can do the hard work of taking care of others. Let’s get started!

“You’re  great example of how to take the bold step of stopping to re-evaluate your life mission.  Knowing that was your experience was the biggest reason I signed up for your coaching.  Thank you for adding value to my journey of growth.”
