About Me

Shakia Mayer

Empowerment and Personal Development Coach

I didn’t always know I wanted to be The Courageous Chick, but I did always know that I wanted to help people. I’ve always enjoyed supporting, motivating and empowering people — there is no greater feeling than that when you’ve helped someone succeed!

As a Courageous Goddess, I help women get clear, get confident and get courageous so they can have the direction, self-love and confidence they need to meet their professional and personal goals. More importantly, I help build support systems for each of my clients through the Shift & Align Goddess Elevation Circle. This powerful community of women includes ambitious professionals, community leaders, high-achieving women, visionaries and luminaries — who all want to conquer the mindsets holding them back from their dreams!

My work as a life coach is a natural extension of my work as a licensed professional counselor. I studied Psychology and Communication Studies at the College of New Jersey and received my Master of Arts in Applied Psychology at New York University. I’ve spoken at multiple women’s empowerment events and also run a YouTube channel focused on personal development and empowerment.

Over the years, I’ve helped countless people of all genders and backgrounds work through substance use, trauma, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and other issues. And now, I’m here to help you.
