I have a PhD in Neuroscience from UCLA and 20+ years experience conducting cutting-edge Brain Mapping research. I became excited about Lifecoaching after I had some personal setbacks. After reviewing the scientific literature, I decided to hire a Lifecoach. I transformed from someone who felt like a victim of circumstance into a person who was resourceful and able to design a life that worked for my new situation. I was so impressed by my own results that I trained to become a Lifecoach in 2013. I have seen similar results in my clients since I began my practice. I have guided countless people through growing their careers, improving their health, and building more satisfying personal relationships. This is a method that delivers results! Currently, I conduct research at UCLA on applying Mindfulness interventions for emotional trauma. I have a one-on-one one coaching practice. I also lead workshops on how to integrate Neuroscience with daily life. "If you focus on the hurt, you will continue to suffer. If you focus on the lesson, you will continue to grow" -Buddah

I use my knowledge of Cognitive Neuroscience to enhance my clients' results. I have published in the areas of Motivation and Reward, Impulsivity, Attention, Time Perception, Brain Plasticity, Mental Effort, and Mindfulness. If you want to make more money, improve your relationships or increase your health and wellness, you need to find a way to be the CEO of your life. However, people generally have an easier time finishing tasks when they are in a structured environment with external deadlines. The BIG life goals require self-directed behavior. This is hard for everyone! I take a holistic approach to all big goal achieving. People often put off the things that matter most because they 1) experience negative feelings when they take on important tasks and 2) the brain is wired to value immediate rewards over delayed rewards. My approach helps people overcome these obstacles by making sure they create tasks that create more joy and minimize negativity. I also help people maintain motivation with sincere positive feedback rooted in measurable results tracking. Most importantly, I create a supportive, non-judgmental experience for all of my clients. Showing up every week to make your life better can be uncomfortable. I create a space that adds enjoyment and ease to the process of transforming your life. Here are some examples of how I have helped past clients: Career Coaching: I have helped dozens of people plan and execute their career goals. Careers are big undertakings, and people need help in all stages of their career development. I have helped clients become successful in the following areas: *Impress in interviews *Negotiate better starting salaries *Negotiate raises *Find ways to develop their skills at their current job *Create opportunities for growth at their current jobs *Decide on a new career path *Market their prior skills during a career change * Select training programs *Start and finish dissertations *Improve academic performance *Search for jobs *Apply for more jobs (let's face it, applying for jobs is a boring job!) *Write great resumes *Re-enter the workforce after a break in employment *Regain confidence after losing a job Business Coaching: Starting a business can be a challenge. My clients have hired me because they procrastinate, work hard but not smart, feel overwhelmed or lack confidence. I have also had clients who run their business like it is a hobby, aren't organized, feel out of control, or they feel shame around collecting money. I help my clients create realistic plans, get more clients, make important decisions, become proactive, confident and calm I also help them have healthy boundaries and feel positive about wanting monetary success. To start a small business, you need to know how much money you need to earn, find time in your week to work on your new business, determine if there will be any start-up costs, and if so how you will finance your startup. You need to know what your product will be and what clients you would like to attract. You often need to define multiple revenue streams, set realistic goals for your sources of revenue, determine pricing, develop a marketing strategy and create ongoing content. You need to able to accept payment, choose an accounting system, set up legal protection. Most businesses require some amount of technology, like web sites, social networking, scheduling systems, accounting systems, etc. You will need to make decisions along the way about whether its better to hire professionals or do it yourself. You need to decide if your business is a full time career or an extra source of revenue. If you want your business to be your full time career, you will need to decide how much revenue you need to make before you can quit your day job. I have helped people create businesses and secondary sources of income in several industries. *Software developers *Massage therapists *Estheticians *Alternative healers *Artists *Business consultants *Technology consultants *Salons *Non-profits *Tutors *Professional lectures *Writers *Physical therapists *Dentists

Client Reviews

Jen and I have worked together on and off for years. She helped me become more confident and grow my career in so many ways, it was hard to decide what to write in this review. I decided to discuss the most recent way she has helped me. I have was preparing for three interviews this week. I thought I wanted to discuss what to wear to each interview and which technical skills I may need to brush up on. Jen, as usual, made some huge observations. First, I wasn’t prepared at all to negotiate my salary. At the heart of it, I hate talking about money. She asked great questions and helped me understand the that value of attending to this for a few days was $100k over two years. She helped me create a plan for my salary negotiation that I was comfortable with so I could feel less awkward discussing money. I got the job and way more money than I was expecting!

I had a very bad experience with my internship and I felt very inadequate and incapable of venturing out to find jobs for myself. I was even thinking of changing career altogether. After working with Ms Jennifer, I felt ready. My weekly plan was simply to call recruiters for one hour. I called a staffing agency.I guess when one is ready- things align. That was the first one I called and they have hired me. Thank you!

For six months, I said to myself every week, “It’s time to get a new job, so this week I’m going to write my resume!” And six months later, the closest I came was creating a duplicate copy of an old resume and leaving it open on my laptop. Maybe I was secretly hoping that it would write itself (which it didn’t). About three weeks ago, I met Jennifer at an event and she asked me one casual question about my failed attempts at a job hunt - “So, what’s stopping you?” and I realized I had NO answers. That’s when I knew that I needed help. Since then, I’ve been working with her twice a week and the progress has been amazing! I have a new resume that’s already posted online. Even more important, she helped me figure out what I wanted to do. I have been stuck waffling between multiple career paths. Without ever injecting her own opinions, Jennifer helped me figure out what I really wanted to do, and not what I felt I should want to do.

Honestly, I thought Life Coaches were BS before I worked with Jennifer Bramen. I am starting a non-profit and I wasn't getting anywhere. Jennifer said she could help and would do a session for free. She has a PhD in Neuroscience, so I was like "sure, what the Hell. Let's do it!" I was amazed by end of the first session. Life coaching wasn't at all what I thought it was. having Jennifer to help me get out all of my ideas and turn them into steps to follow, and having her to hold me accountable every week has given me so much confidence. I am really making my dreams come true.
