It is possible to navigate motherhood and entrepreneurship—without burning out.

Hi there! My name is

Celia Varghese, MD.

Board-certified psychiatrist and Christian life coach.  Passionate about helping Christian mom entrepreneurs continue to have a thriving business without missing out being in their children’s lives.  Mother to an infant son Logan and feisty cat named Mia.  (I will tell you more about that later).

Just when you think you know how your life is going to turn out, God has other plans for you.

I had just left my psychiatry job and was hoping to rest. It was a stressful job and I needed time to wrap my head around it all.

That’s when life took at 180. 

It was 5:30 am in the morning.  My hands were shaking while I stared in disbelief.  Clear as a blue sky, the pregnancy test had 2 pink lines.  I was pregnant. 

My heart was racing.  “I am going to be a mom”.   I sat there in silence and prayed.  “Please let this be a viable pregnancy.”  God answered my prayer.  9 months later, my son Logan was born.  

Seeing his sweet face for the first time, I wanted to stay home and be with my son.  I also wanted to continue to help others and work. 

I didn’t know how to do both.  

“Alright, I can figure this out.  How hard can it be?”  Famous last words. I tried having set hours to work on my business.  With a newborn son, I quickly realized that wasn’t going to happen.  Taking a shower was a major accomplishment at that point. 

“Ok, that didn’t work.  Maybe working early in the morning after his feeding would be a good idea.”  Lesson learned: Social media posts at 2 am in the morning while sleep deprived is never a good idea. 

As time went on, I fell into a vicious cycle of mom guilt. I thought about my business when I was with my son.  I thought about my son when I worked on the business.  Tiredness, being overwhelmed, and fatigue weighed heavily on me.  Mom guilt was increasing and I felt I was failing at both.  

I did what helped in the past.

I prayed to God for guidance and strength.

“God, please help me with being a good mom to my son.  I don’t know what I am doing.  I am a first-time mom and I am struggling.  I am so weary and I need strength.  Please help me”

“Lord, I don’t know what to do with my business.  I don’t feel connected to my business.  I still desire to help others and provide for my family.  Please discern your will for me in regards to my business.  Please guide me in creating a business that serves and honors you”

I prayed multiple times a day seeking him.  God heard me and sent helpers along the way.  Family members stayed with us so my husband and I could rest.  We started to recover.  My son was getting older and sleeping longer at night.  This was a true blessing!

I was invited to join a Christian coaches community. Starting the calls with prayer and praising God as the call progressed, I felt that I found my community. 

God delivered more than I could imagine. 

I found the courage to change who I serve to be more aligned with my calling: Helping high-achieving Christian moms build the emotional skills to navigate challenges in running a profitable business and raising young kids, so that they can create work-life harmony, have more free time and ultimately, enjoy their life!

I am what God designed me to be.

Leaning onto God and the power of coaching transformed my business, marriage and how I am as a mother.

As an entrepreneur, I created work-life harmony that works for this season of life.   Most importantly, I am serving God in a way that honors him with my business.

As a wife, my marriage has improved by turning to him during our difficult times as well as our good times.  

As a mom, I am available to be present for my son while my business works in the background.  I am grateful for being able to be home with my son and see how God is at work with him.

God’s journey for me as a psychiatrist, wife, mom, coach, and entrepreneur all led me to this moment where I can help you.

Let’s figure it out together.
