I am Roula Salman | Jay Shetty Certified Life and Success Coach specializing in relationships. Accredited by the Association of Coaching and certified NLP practitioner.
I was born in Jerusalem and came to the US when I was 14 years old. I have been married to my husband for over 30 years, and we have four children together.
Although I have a BA in Accounting, I have always had a passion for studying psychology and family therapy, but I followed what others wanted me to do. However, my inner voice kept pulling me to the relationship arena, especially when I found myself capable of overcoming my struggles in my relationships and transforming into a happier person who can deal with all kinds of relationships.
Working on my relationships taught me courage, understanding, acceptance, patience, resilience, and true love. Instead of shrinking and escaping, I chose to expand and rise.
Through the years, I found myself helping many people overcome their obstacles and transform their relationships into happier, healthier ones.
In my life journey, I learned that it is essential to have a good relationship with oneself. To practice self-love not only on the outside but to invest and work on the inside as well.
We need to take care of our mind, body, and soul; to have the courage to own who we are, recognize our triggers, and discover our gifts, wants, needs, and core values.
It's essential to make peace with our fears, accept our emotions and imperfections, and embrace them with love, empathy, and compassion.
I believe the quality of our relationships contributes to our overall satisfaction in life. We can learn to love ourselves through our relationships with others, remembering that each relationship guides us to a better version of ourselves which can enhance all our relationships personally and professionally. I acknowledge the importance of human interaction and connection, and those positive relationships help drive our overall well-being.
My mission is to empower and guide my clients to transform struggling relationships into successful and happy ones.
“My sessions with Roula have been not only thought-provoking but brought me more heart alignment in such a short amount of time. She truly holds space for you and really listens to you, everything you say and well, don't say! I leave her sessions feeling clearer and understanding what steps I need to take or things I need to reflect on. Her sessions have me feeling more relaxed, authentic, and positive. She is also just the kindest, genuine, and trustworthy person to speak to, so it just feels so natural to open up to her - I get excited for our sessions, knowing I will learn something new each time.”

“I really enjoyed the coaching sessions with Roula; she made me feel very comfortable about opening up also about sensitive topics and sharing my story with her. She managed to create a very warm, welcoming atmosphere even virtually. She really helped me guide myself into the right direction in regards to finding more clarity about important aspects of my personal life.”
“Thank you, Roula, for the sessions. Your powerful questions have helped me hear my ideas out loud and be able to clarify my thinking. I was able to feel safe, trusted, supported, and come up with my outcome. It was an awesome feeling!”
"From our sessions, Roula really made me focus on the things that really mattered to me and how I could achieve my personal goals.
I could not think clearly, and she helped me organize my thoughts with the questions that she brought to our meetings. She helped me to re-evaluate what was important to me and whether I was willing to make the sacrifices needed to achieve what I wished to do with my personal life. It was great to look at my life holistically and then focus on the areas I really wanted to improve. The sessions provided lots of positive reinforcement and a framework to help me identify the changes I wanted to make in my thoughts and habits. Roula also helped me significantly improve my communication and professional relationship with my Boss, and he is happy with me now :).
I sincerely appreciate Roula's efforts and sessions that supported me a lot during my self-development Journey. Thanks, Roula, and all the best".
“I had the pleasure to meet Roula in an inner circle group for communication and personality development. I noticed from the beginning what a wonderful and fascinating person she is. After a while, I started to take coaching sessions with her, and it’s been six months since I started with her. I can really say that she is the best coach I ever had. What sets her apart is that she asks from the beginning about the subject the client would like to work on. That helps keep focused because when someone is confused or has many matters to work on, they could be distracted very easily. In addition, what an empathetic person she is, she knows how to ask the right questions and make her clients find out the answers by themselves.
I would always take coaching sessions with her again, and I would warmly recommend her.”
