Live your life with intention.

Live your life with intention.

Your life is made up of a whole bunch of decisions that you NEVER made.

Don't let life trick you into chasing dreams that AREN'T yours.

Live your own XO Life.

it's time to put yourself first.


You're busy trying to be many things for many people. You have a successful career, you're a caring great parent, you take care of your family and partner.

But there's no time for your own personal dreams.

You know you can be more, do more, enjoy more. That's why you read articles about personal growth, or listen to podcasts that inspire you.

Sometimes it feels overwhelming. You open your eyes and 10 years have gone by. You remember what you used to love and who you used to be. What happened to that person?

You're waiting for a day when you'll have time and mental energy to rediscover that person. In the meantime, you'll try your best. You'll keep going until you finally have time to focus on yourself. 

Or... You can learn how to grow, without leaving anyone behind.

You're successful, but you don't remember who you are anymore.

REdiscover yourself.

Here's What You Need:

More clarity

To build a roadmap for the future, you need to understand your destination. Figure out who you are, what you want & how it aligns with your personal identity.  

action steps

Action on its own is not enough. It's about knowing the deeper limiting issues and creating intentional action plans that address them.

peace of mind

It's hard to make a decision if you're worried about guilt and regret. When you're intentional, you can make choices with more confidence and satisfaction.

Why is it that no matter how hard we try to be intentional, sometimes things just don't work out the way we want or planned? Most of us are missing a critical step in the goal setting/ life planning/ decision making process. This step can help to give you more satisfaction and less regret in life.

This book covers how to become more aware and live more intentionally in life.

"For the first time in a long time, I finally feel like myself again."

"I'm so grateful that I took this step for myself, that I prioritized myself and grateful to have met every single person that participated. Hands down, I would recommend Rishma to anyone in any capacity"


"I feel like it was a tipping point for so much success and confidence in my life"

"I always feel like the sessions are time well spent. And it doesn't just end there, there's always something to think about or reflect on afterwards."


be bold!

"Different concepts are put together in a way that I couldn't do on my own or find anywhere else."

I went in with something in mind, but it changed. I ended up wanting to focus on something else, to start tackling the real issues.


kind words and beautiful stories

Thank You!

"It was important to make time to prioritize myself."

"The new concepts and new input was so meaningful. There were a lot of things that helped and there was no hesitation, you can be open right away, there was a safe space, positivity.  You can't go wrong, honestly."


Go for it!

“I can apply Rishma's framework to interrupt cycles in my life. 

- Jamie

"I'm now taking away some connections and I can see how things I'm doing are affecting decisions that I'm making. If you've got some blocks that are keeping you from accessing stuff that you want to achieve, working with Rishma would be extremely helpful.”

“I feel like I learned a lot about myself, and about what I need to work on in my life. ”

- jessie

I opened up a part of myself that I had no idea existed until I stepped out of my comfort zone by being there.  It was like an awakening almost. I have been doing things differently in my life since then and it feels so good.

If you don't have the time or energy to figure out how to be more deliberate, more present and more centered in your life, but still want all of those things - welcome! I'm doing it anyway for my own life and I'm happy to share what I know and what I'm continuously learning.

I learned about loss, and how precious time is, very early in life.

Living with my grandparents, and losing them in my teens, shook me in a way that forever changed me. I realized how quickly things can change, how nothing is guaranteed, and how much I value relationships in my life. It's a never ending effort on my part to spend each day in a way that make me content with my life. But my approach is one that I think allows change and growth and satisfaction, while being resilient to challenges.

life is too short for nonesense

this is how I live my life

My programs are not about telling you what to do, they're about teaching you HOW to make your life your own.

empower you to do what's right for you

My patients used to joke they got "Rishma'd", meaning that they had some sort of transformational realization or shift in their lives.  The truth is, I couldn't control their health or their hormones or their fertility.  What made me effective was that I was able to help them understand their options, to know the language of their bodies, to give them the resources to take control over their lives. 

Eventually I realized that my approach is broader than just healthcare. Being able to understand your circumstances, your needs, and next steps, is more powerful than any expert information. 

apply it to your own circumstances

it's frustrating to me that we don't usually get tips and tools that can be adjusted to our lives, to our circumstances, to our personalities. When my kids were young, it was frustrating to me to be told to wake up at 5am and do 42 morning routine tasks when I could barely get everyone dressed and ready on time. When building my business I was told to post on social media daily but I felt like it was draining and more stressful than it was worth.

I had to think about what I needed. And thankfully I understand science and business and anatomy, and why some of these suggestions are supposed to 'help'. But what was more impactful was knowing what results I wanted, what I was willing to trade, what would make the most effective change for me. That's how I was able to be intentional with my choices. And that's how I continually try to be intentional with my life, my family, my career and my health.
