Hi, I'm Doreen Steenland!

Mental Fitness Expert & RN

You're an exhausted medical professional who ends their day with nothing left to give!

Good news! If this is you, then you are in the right place. 

As we say, alert and oriented times three...🤣

Excuse the corny medical humor... 

For you....the good news is you will always have an abundance of work....the recession can't touch your ability to work!

The bad news is that medicine is a mess right now and its killing you!

Short-staffed, under-compensated, and drained dry is what every day looks like.

This is a setting ripe for all kinds of unhealthy stress patterns in order to cope. Your brain is running in survival mode!

Survival mode is sometimes necessary short-term, however, you cannot live with chronic stress without suffering physical symptoms! (but you already know this!)

I get how constant chatter of thoughts and emotions can run the ship of your life. #stressresponse

These thoughts and perceptions influence everything you do and say.

They creep into your parenting...

They creep into your work....

They consume your thinking...

They keep you awake at night...

They keep you over-drinking, overeating, and over scrolling...

And, they are contributing to your patterns of behavior, that no longer serve your goals.

As an ICF-certified coach, and Chief Stress Pattern Buster, I love to change brains, one thought at a time!

My extensive neuroscience training (sounds boring, right??...no way! It's practical!), multiple certifications, and my background as a Registered Nurse equips me to make the complicated simple and facilitate lasting change for you, your team, and your family.

If you think that this is all you can achieve in your journey...

If you think you are destined to stay stuck in these stress patterns unless you retire...


Get ready to step into a new light, greater understanding and better mindset about who you are and what you're really worth!

Chatter Ruled My Life!

"For decades, I let my internal chatter dictate the direction of my life."

Many times, this chatter comes from past situations and words that affect how we react and respond to the world. 

I was a mean girl to myself...as much as I did...it was never enough...something was missing.

Often we don't even realize how we are speaking to ourselves, or the perceptions that we have about others until we begin to challenge our thoughts and emotions. 

Truth be told, I was downright ugly mean to myself! I said things to myself that I would never say to a friend! It was a pattern that was built in my brain.

 This chatter, which happens in the secret place of our brain, sneaks in at the most inopportune times.

It affects all of our relationships, at home and work, and leaks into our parenting. " The truth is, for years I lived as if I were not enough. I couldn't do enough, couldn't be enough, no matter how hard I worked or what I achieved, there was always the next thing, and guilt for what was left undone.

My own thoughts were running the ship of my life and they were holding me back from reaching my goals.

This is where my journey in interpersonal neurobiology began!"

As I was studying to become a life coach, I gained a new internal awareness of my self-sabotage, and it became her passion to help others take charge of their chatter so that they can be their best at work, and sleep through the night peacefully.  

The truth is that you get to choose the thoughts your peruse!

I love to use neuroscience to help you sort through your problematic habits and patterns.In all of our interactions, we are either drawing others near to us or pushing them away, sorting through that is a powerful process. 

Yes....I'm passionate about empowering people to tap into the superpower of their brain so they can get anchored, be intentional & think clearly. 

The affects of chronic stress and overwhelm on the body, mind and our relationships is a global epidemic.

It leads to burnout, overall dissatisfaction with life, and physical affects of the body and mind.

I help people pluck out the problem thinking at the root and equip you to take back the power in your life.

Understanding how your thoughts, emotions, and brain impacts your actions and results is key to success in all areas of your life.I've learned firsthand how to be anchored in the sea of chaos using neuroscience and coaching.

Coaching helps you figure out what would take years to discover on your own.

Quick and efficient....YUP!

Coaching is like a floodlight on the soul.

I live in New Jersey with my husband and I'm mom to three amazing young adults! I'm a lover of Jesus, golf, ethnic food, walking in nature, sitting on my front porch, smelling the salt, ocean air, and connecting authentically with others.I've found the secret to empower women to live a balanced life so they can BE present for the things that matter most!

I believe you can learn to be present and enjoy your family. I believe you can reach your goals. I believe you have the answers inside you, we just need to learn how to access them!

I believe you can live an anchored life and no longer tossed to and fro in the waves of uncertainty. I believe you can live calm, confident, curious, & courageous lives.

Transformation Stories

Meet Jennifer N.

Founding Member of "Get Anchored"

"Daily, I felt a lot of pressure. The second I got home, the tug of war began with my family. I was frustrated and didn't know how to balance it all without yelling and screaming to get them to listen. I felt like I was alone trying to juggle it all. I was sick and tired of being ruled by my emotions and repeating the same mistakes over and over again and not know how to move forward.

Working with Doreen changed everything. She helped me balance all the spinning plates and we designed strategies for gaining buy-in at home. Our family now functions as a family and I'm really clear-minded, instead of always feeling guilty. I'm no longer exhausted because I'm trying to be everything to everyone and can unplug when I get home and enjoy my family."

What she says...


can begin now!

Meet Tami L.

Founding Member of "Get Anchored"

"I have so many tools now and love the practical aspect of the program. 

I now have more than 5 powers I can tap into for every circumstance in life.  I can tap into calm clear headed focus the middle of stressful situations.

I can plan ahead instead of being a victim of life's ebbs and flows". 

Could this be you?

Are you ready to take the next step?

Meet Debra N.

Founding Member of "Get Anchored"

"I lost my joy in life, between covid and my family's struggle my feelings went numb. I was “just there”. I had no excitement to plan new things, or to set and accomplish goals, or do the big things I've always wanted.  It is as if I have just been going thru the motions of the day.

Doreen helped me to look inside myself and get to the root of the problem. 

I've learned how to access the power within myself, change my patterns and my confidence increased because I have tools going forward."
