About Me

Are you feeling overwhelmed or stuck as a Lawyer Mom?

Hi, I’m Charise.  And I’ve been there.

Not too long ago, I was practicing law and trying to be present with my kids. I was deeply unhappy but I didn’t know what to do. 

I had checked all the boxes. Graduated from Georgetown Law. Got a job at a top DC firm. Got married. Bought a house. Had 2 kids. 

How could I be so unfulfilled? And what was I supposed to do about it? I felt utterly trapped and confused. 

It affected everything. My health. My family life. My work. 

It didn’t seem like there was a way out.   

Then I found causal coaching and it changed my life. 

It showed me the root cause of what was keeping me stuck. It also gave me the tools to create the life I wanted.  

Now, I’m living that life everyday. I do work that I love and I DELIGHT in watching my clients transform their lives.     

My work is to help you love yours



I’ve identified the specific tools and skills that Lawyer Moms need to get unstuck and get happy. These were not taught in law school, but they are key to getting happy in your career. 

I start with the cognitive-science based tools that I learned in my training as a Certified Professional Coach. These are supported with real data for improving quality of life, happiness at work,  wellbeing, and results. 

I then draw from my 10 years of experience as a Big Law attorney, navigating work with motherhood and two maternity leaves, as well as year of experience coaching working moms on their lives and careers, I’ve developed a keen eye that helps me efficiently identify the root cause of what’s keeping you stuck. 

I’ve put it altogether in my unique signature 1:1 coaching program, Happy Law Mom, to help Lawyer Moms get the life and career that they want.  

Are you ready to get happy as a lawyer Mom?
