Have you experienced the loss of a close loved one? Did that pain change you? Or maybe you didn’t but are an overachiever who doesn’t know how to deal with the uncomfortable feelings inside? Jasmin Terrany has created a business that is a combination of psychotherapy and coaching with mindfulness and meditation. She has a life therapy virtual practice where she helps highly achievement-oriented women be successful in their personal life.
