The “secret” to creating a joyful life is through your mindset, which is the foundation of everything. 


Read my blog posts where I share valuable tips and info on how to overcome your life challenges.

Clients in Action

I had two sessions with Tristan and she gave me plenty of tips and insights on patterns and dynamics that played out for me and held me back in certain areas of my life. It really helped me to implement her tips.

It felt like a huge support to have a person on your side that sees you and believes in you and can already see the full potential of yourself. Which feels tremendously helpful if you have trouble to see your true self yet and when you navigate through your limiting beliefs.

When I began working with Tristan, I immediately knew we were a good fit. She was very approachable and always provided me with honest feedback.

She recognized the negative self-talk patterns that I had been practicing for many years which had become the way I thought about myself and the way I viewed the world. She challenged me to let go of my negative beliefs and step out of my comfort zone. After a year of being self-employed, my business is hopping and I get to be selective of the work that I take on.

I highly recommend Tristan to any woman who needs an extra push towards reaching their dream!

Tristan is an intuitive spirit who knows exactly what to say and do to let you know she cares.

Her greatest attribute is her trained ear and compassionate and deep empathy that warrants her guidance.

It is Tristan’s years of experience and her unobtrusive yet direct manner that makes her more than qualified to be your life coach.

Don’t be surprised If a warm pair of socks or a delicious homemade banana cranberry bread appears from the blue to brighten your day.

Dr. Sophia has been such a light in my life.

She is able to create such a warm space to truly listen to what is going on within you, so you can quiet your inner critic, as it can sometimes be extremely loud.

She has such a nurturing and empathic way of helping you challenge those internal thoughts of when you start comparing yourself to others, as well as learning to fully trust yourself & your decisions.

She is also going to have the resources to help you get yourself back on the priority list without feeling guilty or questioning it. The value she provides is indescribable and beyond anything I’ve ever seen.

Dr. Sophia is one amazing life coach that is going to change your life if you are ready & committed to the process!

Caroline Iscovitz

The coaching I received from Dr. Tristan Sophia was exactly what I needed to take my business further.

I have always been good at setting goals and putting my customers first, but it was sometimes to my own detriment.

It was so easy to put myself on the back burner, putting the needs of others first. With Tristan’s help I was able to clarify my vision, make myself a priority, AND stay on track with my business goals and purpose.

The description of a great coach is someone who brings out the best in you so you can play at your fullest potential. Dr. Sophia is that coach!

Dionne Thomas

I have always been someone skeptical of ‘life coaching,’ thinking that it’s a bit hokey and not really something I would benefit from. I hate admitting that I’m wrong, but I was totally wrong. I promised myself that I would embark on this with an open mind, all while thinking I had it all figured out.

My time spent with Tristan was and still is incredibly impactful.

She is an unbiased source of support, who encouraged me to think “out of the box” and not be apologetic for being myself. I cannot say for sure if I will ever open my own bookstore, but I can say that with encouragement and help from Tristan, I will not apologize to someone who may not understand me, based on intellect or otherwise.

She helped me recognize that as a woman, I don’t owe explanation to anyone why I am the way I am but to own it.

I think this is the first time in my life I can honestly say that I feel empowered and I know it is because of the time I spent with Tristan.

Jessica Edwards

Tristan has helped me to change my life forever! I used to live in fear all the time and follow the need to escape. These are not characteristics conducive to starting and running a business. She’s taught me to not be ruled by my emotions and to quiet my own inner critic. It’s hard to own a business.

There are hurdles that come at you from seemingly nowhere that you must conquer, whether or not you think they have merit. You must convey the self confidence necessary to earn people’s trust.

You have to have enough faith in yourself that it is contagious. Tristan has given me the tools necessary to have that. And the best part is my confidence and faith in myself is sincere. I can truly see now the things I could not see before. That comes out in my dealings with customers as well as other business professionals I collaborate with.

I am forever grateful for her influence on my life.

Melanie Kossan

Working with Tristan was an amazing experience. She helped me to see my true self, my core, what really matters, in the midst of my mind negative chatter, softly guiding me to my truth without any judgement.

Tristan fully accepted me with all complexity of my being. As a result, I became more clear in regard to what I want to do in my life and career, and what I do not want to do. Whom I want to be daily, whom I definitely do not want to be. And what choices I want to make in every moment of my life to become a better version of myself.

I am beyond grateful for meeting Tristan on my life path and working with her towards achieving my entrepreneurial goals - understanding that I am worthy, I am appreciated, and I have to express myself freely because this is what we all come here for - to be unapologetically ourselves and experience this life, fulfilling our highest potential.

What Exactly is a Life Coach?

Coaching is not mentoring, consulting, or advice-giving.
Coaching is collaborative.
Together, the two of you come up with new ways to approach obstacles, so you can immediately start seeing success on your chosen goals.
