Changing Brains, One Thought At A Time!

Doreen Steenland


Doreen understands people and how constant chatter of thoughts and emotions can run the ship of your life. These thoughts and perceptions influence everything you do and say.  As an ICF certified coach, Inner Strength Trainer & pattern disruptor, Doreen loves to change brains, one thought at a time! Her extensive neuroscience training, multiple certifications, and her background as a Registered Nurse equips her to make the complicated simple and facilitate lasting change for you, your team, and your family.

"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. 

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 and they were holding me back from reaching my goals.

This is where my journey in interpersonal neurobiology began!"

As Doreen was studying to become a life coach, she gained a new internal awareness of her 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!

Doreen loves 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. 

Doreen is 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.

Doreen has 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. 

She lives in New Jersey with her husband and is mom to three amazing young adults! She is 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.

Doreen has found the secret to empower women to live a balanced life so they can BE present for the things that matter most!

Doreen is the pattern buster and stress disruptor!

"In just a month, my thinking has become more positive and I am finally taking control of my life.

Doreen is honest, encouraging, and insightful. She helps guide you through your decisions and makes you see things in yourself that you were not aware of before. Doreen gives you the tools to stay organized, build your confidence, and reach your goals.

I've learned how to dig deep internally to create balance and influence others more effectively."

Lee H.

"I am better able to step back and notice where thoughts and emotions are coming from. I am better able to accept that I’m not superwoman and this isn’t all on me, as I use the practical tools Doreen provides to empower my son.

Before working with Doreen, I felt like I was in constant battle with my teen. I learned how to react less based on my emotions and become intentional with my words and actions. Now, I'm able to recognize when my brain is getting hacked."

Jennifer I.

"I hired Doreen to help me with my relationship with my teenage son. Doreen’s compassion and love for her clients is truly a gift! Doreen guided me to shift my mindset to seeing my son as a young man instead of a boy which helped me show up more the way I wanted to as a mother. Doreen also helped me start to come up with different ways to interact with my son on a weekly basis to help create a much healthier dynamic between us. I highly recommend Doreen as a very caring, present and knowledgeable coach."

Andrea S.

"My teens are 18 and 15 and the result of Doreen’s coaching is our now more harmonious home! When I first came to work with Doreen, I spent a lot of time nagging my teens to get the to cooperate. It was exhausting! I also struggled with guilt because I wanted to build stronger relationships with them and I felt
shut out!

Doreen's group coaching helped me prepare my children to be responsible young adults and connect with them! She provided a whole toolbox of tools to choose from and I get to use them daily. It truly changed the whole dynamic in our home!"

Elizabeth R.
New Jersey

"As a woman in a corporate environment, I felt a lot of pressure. The second I got home, the tug of war began with my teenagers. 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.

Working with Doreen changed our family. 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."
