ABOUT story-based coaching

So, here at The Modern Life Coach School we created a simpler, more effective way to coach.

It helps coaches to feel confident and clients to feel seen, heard, and like they matter.

Story-Based Coaching combines narrative psychology, positive psychology, and neuroscience into one powerful coaching method.

It is a modern, mindful, experiential approach that helps people get unstuck and create real change, real fast through rewriting their stories about themselves, others, and the world to create new possibilities and better results.

Coaches feel more confident and are more successful using this step-by-step process that works on any problem for anyone.

Story-Based Coaching is taught exclusively at The Modern Life Coach School.

The Proven Coaching Method That Removes The Guesswork From Coaching So You Know EXACTLY WHAT TO DO

As the world we live in continues to change drastically, we realized that the world of coaching was perfectly created for a world that no longer exists.

about our founder

Hey there!
I'm cynthia garcia

I help ambitious go-getters and aspiring entrepreneurs get unstuck and create a life and business so good they’re only jealous of themselves.

I’m passionate about coaching because it saved and then completely transformed my life.

I grew up in extreme poverty in the Appalachian mountains with no running water in my home, an outhouse, and an environment filled with violence, abuse, and anger.

Every day was a struggle and it seemed like I had no way out.

I tried everything to numb the pain and trauma I had endured but nothing worked.

After hitting rock bottom, suffering from anxiety, depression, and considering suicide, it was coaching that shifted everything.



I decided to find a way out of the darkness and create a life where I was only jealous of myself. I wanted to help others suffering and struggling just like me.

I'm here to prove that you are not defined by your circumstances, your past, or your weaknesses. I know what it’s like to have big dreams while also being afraid to go for them out of fear I would fail or fear of what others would think.

After taking a chance on myself and creating what truly is my dream life, I can say with certainty, it’s worth taking the next right step, even when it’s scary. Especially when its scary.

Being a coach has been the honor of a lifetime. I've helped people lose weight, transform their relationships, create massive success, and enjoy their dream life. And now I want to help you do the same.

What I know for sure is that everything is possible! It does not matter where you've been or what you've been through you can absolutely create the life you want to live. Starting today.

Cynthia Garcia is a visionary leader, modern-day life coach, media personality, and celebrity nutritionist.

She overcame an insanely dysfunctional childhood filled with abuse, crime, addiction, and poverty. Today, she inspires others to rewrite their stories by being an example of what was possible when she rewrote her own. Cynthia is the leading expert in the field of modern-day mindset. She is the founder and CEO of the Institute of Transformational Nutrition (ITN), the modern-day coaching school for forward-thinking coaches and those who want to become one.

Cynthia was trained as a Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) but quickly realized that people are fed by so much more than what’s on their plate.

This started her deeper dive into creating the signature coaching method, Transformational Nutrition® – the scientific study of what feeds you – physically, mentally, and spiritually.

She has coached thousands of private clients ranging from stay-at-home moms to celebrities to Fortune 500 CEO’s on how to get unstuck so they can create a life, career, and relationships that are so good they’re jealous of themselves. Her corporate clients have included Morgan Stanley, Kodak, and Fidelity Investments. She’s a fellow at the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate.

In an effort to be part of the solution for mental health concerns, Cynthia created the Transformational Trauma Technique®. This powerful solution has been used successfully for over a decade with Cynthia’s private clients, practiced by Certified Transformational Nutrition Coaches (CTNCs), and is taught exclusively at ITN.

With her Southern charm and empowering approach, Cynthia is a contributor for several publications and media outlets including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Elle, and more. She is the official nutritionist for the E! Network’s Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian and is a sought-after expert in media such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Doctors, The Dr. Phil Show, and others.

She is the co-founder of The Unicorn Club – an invite only society where the world’s most successful women leaders come to connect, collaborate, and cultivate the confidence to not apologize for their greatness.

Cynthia is an investor in health and wellness companies who are thinking bigger and challenging the status quo.

Her latest endeavor is founding The Modern Life Coach School in an effort to certify life coaches who are better prepared to deal with the new challenges we face in the modern world including mental health struggles, racial and diversity issues, and creating a meaningful and purpose-led career on your terms.

Cynthia is a leader and an inspiration born of her own personal history. She is happily married, has two children and lives in Los Angeles and Portland.
