10 Minutes to CalmThe doors are now closed for 10 Minutes to Calm - I now, sad face. Want to be notified when we open again? Add your name to our waiting list.
WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE?
Chaos. Pandemic. Deadly virus. Social unrest. Economic crisis. Election.
How are you holding up? How are you handling it all?
Now, more than ever, I feel that we need some mindset work: being able to understand our thoughts, manage our emotions, control how we interact with others, and decide how to show up every day.
When we understand how our minds work, we can use this powerful tool to support us when we start spinning out of control into anxiety and fear.
We let go of we can’t control and focus our energy on what is right in front of us, on what we can control and how we can create an impact.
It’s about cultivating calm and control no matter what is happening around us.
ARE YOU WITH ME?
Hi there, I’m Miriam, your communication doc and a reformed “worrywart“.
I grew up in a Portuguese family where emotions spoke louder than the soccer fans on a Sunday.
As a neurolinguist and emotional intelligence expert, I have applied my teachings to myself first and know, first hand, how impactful they are.
There have always been chaotic moments throughout my life that I had to learn to deal with but never like this moment we are living right now.
Yes, these are trying times but I invite you not to panic. I invite you to choose purpose and calm over anxiety and fear.
I invite you to activate your “parasympathetic system” and jump into calm and control mode so that we can make good decisions.
I invite you to step into our power and decide who you want to be when chaos knocks at the door.
We can do it. We’ve done it before. With a calm mind, we can do anything.
Let me show you how.

Let People Talk…
“I work in education as the head of my department. I deal with many different personalities on a daily basis. Prior to working with Miriam, I used to dread certain conversations because I knew that they would be tense, go nowhere, and would end in conflict.
Miriam’s coaching has helped me listen more closely to what is being said. I am more able to pick up on critical pieces of information and body language cues that I had previously missed. I am now learning to effectively use these cues to calm the situation and move the dialogue forward in a productive manner.
I no longer shy away from difficult conversations because I feel more aware and have confidence in my abilities.”
Lyn P., Educator
“I manage a 10 person team and just like any other team we have our share of conflicts. Miriam focused on the team leads and asked us to describe recent conflicts and how we addressed them. She helped me to put the different personality types into perspective. That helped me understand how wide-ranging my responses to different employees need to be.
I applied her suggestions and it truly worked. I find that conflict in the workplace is never ending and it can be draining so it felt good to discuss tactics for dealing with it with Miriam.”
John G, VP Executive
“Coaching requires that you are able to be open and honest in order to dig deep and learn about yourself and learn how to be a more effective you. Miriam does not provide answers, magically solve problems, or tell you what you should do.
Miriam’s coaching helps you identify what is out of alignment, set personal goals, and develop your skills. It is a continuous process of growth and development. If you put in the time and the effort, Miriam will guide and support your journey. It’s been a true game changer in my career.”
Brandy P., Writer, speaker, educator
“We have a small business in the food industry. Miriam was essential in helping my business partner and I realize that the main reason for our current disagreements rested on the fact that we never truly discussed the evolution of our roles in the company and were now stepping on each others’ shoes.
Something so simple, yet we could not see it for ourselves.”
Cary, Entrepreneur, Food industry
“Our work together has also been an anchor for remembering that everything felt and experienced passes through the limbic system, as the place where emotions reside. Keeping this fact in the forefront of my mind focused my efforts on understanding and processing my emotions, as well as helping my students understand and process theirs.
As trust grew between students, and the class culture became more inclusive, I especially noted improvement in the well-being of students with learning differences. Students began to see one another more clearly.”
“Miriam’s kindness and intelligence come through in every interaction. The tools we have to succeed are within ourselves. and Miriam helps us rediscover who we are and to feel confident about the vision we have for ourselves. I am forever grateful for her professionalism and highly recommend her to those who truly want to remake their lives.”
Dr. Stephanie Han, Writer, Speaker, and Educator
“I’ve been fortunate to experience coaching for over twenty years and Miriam is unlike everyone I’ve ever worked with. She combines science and knowledge of the brain, with intuitive coaching and it’s a breath of fresh air. Miriam holds the space for you with compassion and kindness but also explains the WHY. She helped me shift and reframe something I’ve been working on my entire life. It’s life-changing and it feels authentic and actually doable.”
