Women's Executive Coaching and Consulting
I help women successfully navigate challenging career transitions to cultivate clarity, confidence and courage.
Life can be overwhelming and confusing. This is especially true if you are facing a significant transition, whether it involves your career, leadership development, or anything that impacts the alignment of life and work.
Perhaps you’re feeling stuck, aware that you need to make a critical decision, and move forward, yet you feel unsure of what to do, and how to take action.
What is Executive Breakthrough Coaching?
As a licensed Psychotherapist and Executive Coach, I help ambitious professional women successfully navigate challenging career transitions to cultivate clarity, confidence, and courage.
By combining my passion to help women achieve their career goals, and my successful experience spanning more than twenty years as a healthcare executive, I help high performing women manage stress, conquer anxiety, and grow both professionally and personally and lead effectively.
I understand the neuroscience that informs human behavior as well as the motivation and thought patterns that drive it forward. With this specialized knowledge, I help you create a vision for your career and life that is bigger and more rewarding than what you are currently experiencing.
The results you achieve will enable you to live a life that is authentic, happy, fulfilled, and just right for you.

In working with my clients, they:
- become crystal clear about what’s working, what’s not working and what’s missing in their lives
- discover the (hidden) challenges preventing them from balancing their
career, family, personal, and social lives with their goals
Following every session, clients are able to identify at least one (usually more) action step(s) they can commit to and apply, to start making meaningful changes in their lives immediately, allowing them to move closer to the goals they identified as important and desirable.
The intention of the Discovery Call is to determine whether coaching can be successful in attaining leadership and/or relationship goals.
Set expectations and indicate the context of coaching services.
Determine the gap between the Client’s current and desired level of performance, and her overall pattern of strengths and developmental areas.
Action Plan Development
The development plan contains 2 or 3 short-term, actionable items to assist the Client in meeting their developmental goals.
Ongoing observation/analysis of the Client, providing feedback, offering opportunities for her learning and growth, and encouragement to reinforce her motivation.
Reflection on coaching and learning, evaluate against goals/outcomes and whether ample change has taken place.
“Before I started my coaching sessions with Robyn, I thought I was doing alright, but deep down I felt like something was missing. I hopped on a discovery call and wow! In a matter of minutes, Robyn clearly identified what was holding me back. In every one of my coaching session, there are actionable skills, ideas, and insights that I immediately use. Now, I love my life and have never felt happier and more productive.”
-Julie J. Client since October 2018
“Working with Robyn is an investment in myself, my happiness, and my future success.”
- Laurie L. Client since July 2019
“I’d been in therapy for years, and I’ve worked with other coaches, read all the best- selling self-help books that supposedly had all the answers. Truth is, I had few real results. I was tired, frustrated and stuck, I found Robyn and I’m so thankful I did, because since working with her, my work performance and my relationships have benefitted tremendously. I plan to continue working with Robyn because I’m getting the results I want and need.”
- Angelique J. Client since December 2019
“I’d never used a coach before but I had been feeling that something was missing in my professional life. Robyn’s combination of educational and experiential background caught my eye and I decided to give her a try. I’ve been on board with her for a while now and have never looked back. It has made my life so much more fulfilling and I know she can do the same for anyone else who feels they are in the same place I was.”
- Corey S. Client since September 2018
“You’ll immediately feel like you’ve known Robyn forever. She’s a great listener, asks the right thought provoking (often tough) questions to get at the heart of any issue, and intuitively knows when and how to help you problem solve, most effectively. Robyn is the secret weapon for my success and happiness!”
- Wendy F. Client since March 2018
“Working with Robyn is so much more than “just” coaching. It has been nothing less than transformational. I feel better and more confident about myself, and how I show up in the world.”
- Amira S. Client since April 2020
“What a powerful experience! My perceptions of myself, my life purpose, and my worldview have all shifted. Any woman who is interested in positively impacting her life, career, relationships (or all three), should seriously consider Breakthrough Executive Coaching.”
- Ana C. Client since February 2020
“With Robyn as my coach, I’ve reimagined what success looks like and feels like within the context of a life of health and happiness. Together, we have worked to unpack stress and manage debilitating anxiety, collaboratively uncovering tools to help me establish a foundation from which to reach new levels of personal and professional success. Robyn helps me clarify goals, provides concrete strategies to reach them, and holds me accountable.
We dig deep in each session into the underlying causes of blocks to my personal success, and Robyn leverages insightful questions to help me uncover the solutions I have inside.
Robyn empowers me with mindfulness and tools that serve me across diverse domains of life including interpersonal relationships, professional endeavors, and even my faith community. The outcomes of the mindfulness practices, executive presence, and goal development from my work with Robyn have increased success in my personal and professional life. The results I continue to experience include healthier relationships, a major promotion at work, successful navigation of trauma and grief, and higher levels of happiness overall. Robyn is an expert, results-oriented coach who will help her clients as she has helped me to find clarity, health, and success.”
- Jolie P. Client since August 2018
"Robyn is passionate about helping women grow to their fullest capacity, to achieve their dreams, to free themselves from their limiting beliefs, to create clarity about their journey. With a breadth of experience in psychotherapy, and a devotion to her clients' goals, Robyn is an incredible coach. I have learned that we all can benefit from an independent, committed coach, and Robyn is one of the best. If you are looking to free yourself from whatever is holding you back from achieving the life of your dreams, Robyn is the person you should connect with!"
- Gary M.
"Robyn Shapiro, LMFT, RN is a passionate advocate for those who are ready to do the work. Her clinical approach in a compassionate and thought provoking manner gets to the heart of the matter efficiently without the client even realizing the progress that is being made. Not only does she posses and employ deep clinical experience but she is well versed in the areas of employment, relationships, red-flag warnings, and trauma. In 3 months I was able to reconcile and release deep personal and professional trauma while shifting my focus and bringing clarity and purpose to my mission. She is supportive by creating strong boundaries and responsive without crossing over into friend territory. Her vigilance and genuine concern for her clients' well being and best interest is always at the forefront of each coaching session and subsequent follow up and response. If you are willing and ready to commit to one hour of coaching per week plus maybe 45 minutes of written reflection, then you could be the type of client that can benefit from Robyn's coaching. I certainly have and am forever grateful for her insight, guidance, and advocacy as I enter a very new and exciting chapter in my family and work life. Thank you, Robyn."
- Brooke R.
Robyn helped me navigate through several professional challenges effectively by offering up key insights and "telling it like it is" that proved invaluable while I navigated tricky political situations at work. She helped me to level up my thinking to effectively achieve my goals and take the next steps to help me be successful. She helped me reflect on my inner thinking that held me back, while pushing me to know my own worth in the workplace.
