Hello I'm Nella Castro, I'm a Life Coach and Educator, I have 10+ years as a school counselor helping Teens and Young Adults find their passion/purpose, cultivate a success mindset, set action plans and achieve goals.
I have a B.A. degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University and a Master's degree in Counseling Education from San Jose State University. I was born in Managua, Nicaragua and at the age of two, I moved to California with my parents and siblings. I was raised in the Bay Area and now reside in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.
After I graduated College, I became a High School counselor where I've been providing Academic Planning and Social- Emotional support ,College/Career guidance to students for over 12 years now. Loving the 1:1 counseling aspect of my job, I knew I wanted to do more of it. As a school counselor, I know first had the issues that affect our teen girls, but due to the nature of my role and all the other administrative duties that come with it, I couldn't dedicate as much 1:1 attention to all my students. I wanted to have a greater impact and create something on my own terms while still helping others so I decided to start my own Life Coaching practice.
Through my coaching I can continue my passion of helping Teen Girls and Young Women while using my counseling guidance skills to not only reach high school students but also to help empower young women in cultivating a success mindset, building confidence, setting goals and live up to their full potential.
I'm truly passionate about empowering Teen Girls and Young Women on their journey to confidently navigate that transition to young adulthood.
I'm thrilled about life coaching for teens and young women because if I knew sooner what I know now, I could have created the life I have now sooner. Life Coaching for Teen Girls and Young women is a game changer, I truly believe in this work and on what our youth can achieve if they are empowered and equipped with the necessary tools early on.
I'm committed to ensuring that every Young Women and Teen Girl client I work with feels confident and empowered to create a plan for the future she envisions where she values and loves herself through the process.
