The Own Your Greatness Masterclass: Feel Empowered In Your Life And Career

Imposter syndrome (or imposter complex) is a phenomenon that many people struggle with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, imposter syndrome leaves many people feeling trapped in place and unsure where to turn for practical, hands-on advice.

As psychologists and executive coaches in New York City, we have spent the last 15 years helping highly successful and accomplished people own their greatness and learn how to deal with imposter syndrome. We’ve supported our clients as they learn to recognize and address their fears, overcome personal and professional challenges, and do all the work they need to thrive.

We developed a method, which we wrote about in the Own Your Greatness: Overcome Impostor Syndrome, Beat Self-Doubt and Succeed in Life workbook, which is based on research, our own professional experience, and the techniques that have been successful with clients in our practice.

Our Own Your Greatness Masterclass takes you through our proven 3 Cs 'Strategy to teach you how to overcome imposter syndrome, broken down into 9 action steps you can take to actively process and address the issues that are standing in the way of your success.

Through our interactive approach, you’ll learn to evaluate your imposter origin story, acknowledge impostor syndrome symptoms, recognize triggers and trap doors, and change your narrative to support your ongoing success & well-being.


Owning your success and accomplishments starts when you CHOOSE to speak your truth. We’ll help you identify automatic negative thoughts (ANTs) that increase your fraud complex feelings of fraudulence so you can proactively deal with them instead of running yourself to the ground trying to cover them up. You will learn how to prioritize self-care, in order to create a compassionate, supportive routine that helps you value and care for yourself.


To CREATE change, you must take an assertive role in your self-growth. We’ll help you form a real, holistic picture of all the different factors that are holding you back and what you can do to tackle them.

That includes developing concrete skills and tools so you can experiment with new roles, build your dream team of support, and find the conditions for optimal performance.

What People Who Took the Masterclass are saying:

What were your results from the course?

  • During this 12 weeks, I have set work and personal boundaries, dedicated more time to self-care, established stable and positive relationships, started my journal article again, regained my life, purpose, and passion

  • I interviewed for a six figure Director-level role in my field with FULL confidence in myself, objectivity, articulating my accomplishments and skills very clearly with no anxiety or feelings of being an imposter.

  • My manager/director commented that she noticed a marked difference in my work in the last 6 weeks. She didn’t know what changed but I credit all of the work from this class. The last 12 weeks have been completely transformative. My confidence has improved, I am taking credit for my accomplishments and speak my voice at work meetings.

  • I received and accepted a new job offer!

  • Got a job offer for 60% more than my last salary.
