Sasha Heinz, Ph.D: Developmental psychologist & life coach

My NativeAdVantage:


Sasha Heinz, Ph.D., developmental psychologist and life coach, is an expert in the Science of Unstuck. Through her private practice, she’s helped women to lose weight, stop procrastinating, love their jobs, figure out what makes them happy, and make other changes that stick -- for life. A graduate of Harvard University and a working mom, she’s lived life on the frontline of the battle with perfectionism. So, she can help you with that, too.

What do you do best?

I’m a champion of other people’s dreams. I love to help other women take control of their happiness and make the changes in their life that they thought were impossible. When I’m helping them become their best, I’m at my best.

What do I do best?

Manage my mind. So simple. So hard. So essential.

What are your aspirations?

Professionally, I want to help people get unstuck in their habits and teach them how to bridge the gap between their intentions and their actions.

Personally, I want to be a model of what is possible – especially for my kids.

Biggest Success?

I think anyone who survived high school can do anything. High school was harder than writing a dissertation as a mom with two kiddos under four. Everyone has done hard things – we just don’t usually give ourselves the credit we deserve, and we tend to think we have it easier than others. You don’t – real life is gritty. It’s difficult. But you’re succeeding – I promise.

Most Challenging Moment?

The pivotal challenge that changed the course of my life was the decision I made in my early 20s to get help for my eating disorder and put everything I’ve got into my recovery. I believe in the possibility of radical behavioral change because I have done it.


If you change your mindset, you will change your life.

Favorite People/Role Models?

There are so many women that I have girl crush on, it’s so hard to choose. But here’s a few from my personal women’s hall of fame:

•    Angela Lansbury as an example of how to thrive in your third act.

•    Brene Brown, Ph.D., and Angela Duckworth, Ph.D., as two incredibly smart social science researchers who’ve had a tremendous impact on how we understand ourselves and the human experience.

•    Livia Firth, Jacqueline Novogratz, and my sister-in-law Vanessa Kerry for their passion, brilliance, and dogged commitment to improving our world.

•    Jill Kargman for her wit, hilarity, and searing social commentary.

•    And because I’m a huge nerd and have a daughter, Emma Watson (both as Hermione and herself) because I adore the example she sets for young women as a reader, as a feminist, and as an environmentalist.

Favorite Places/Destinations?

The mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho, and the ancient charm of Greece with its many islands in the Aegean and Ionian Seas.

Favorite Products/Objects?

I can’t live without Laird Superfood Unsweetened Creamer,, Fitbit Charge 2 watch, and Bobbi Brown Extra tinted moisturizer with 25 SPF.

Current Passions?

Knocking off items on our house punch list. No, seriously, after a year of renovations and moving… It’s pretty thrilling. Hit of dopamine every time.
