"Coaching for Growth, Authenticity and Fulfillment"


Conny Wegener, Ph.D. started her coaching career in 2003 after working as a language professor at Yale University to follow her life's purpose to become a life coach.

Conny is a certified professional coach by the renowned Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara, CA and holds a Ph.D. in American Literature from Tuebingen University, Germany. She also graduated with a master degree in Political Science and English Literature from Tuebingen University.

In her private practice, she sees clients who find themselves in life transitions and want to partner with a professional coach in order to discover or refocus their life's purpose, redefine their passions and values, find new balance, look for support in their individuation process and seek help to attain new goals.

Her approach to coaching is rooted in her own life experiences as well as extensive, ongoing studies in the field of personal growth and development. She combines an analytical mind with strong empathy and natural curiosity.

A native German, Conny moved to the U.S. in 2006 and since then resides in Atlanta, GA with her husband and two children. In her free time she enjoys reading, writing, bicycling and hiking.

My Journey to Coaching

I remember sitting in front of the piano and my piano teacher, a wise elderly lady, asked me: „Tell me, Conny, what do you want to do as a profession?“

I was 17 years old at the time and about to leave high-school. I shrugged my shoulders in desperation and sighed, “I just don’t know. I only wish I would have that one, unique gift like a musician or an artist. I wish there wouldn’t even be a question of what to do, but I am interested in so many things, have many talents and don’t know which route to take.”

My piano teacher looked at me with kind and knowing eyes and said, “I can picture you very well either as a teacher or a doctor.”

Many years later in my quest for finding and living my true purpose, it turns out my piano teacher was correct. As a coach, I combine the gifts of a teacher – knowing the subject matter, asking challenging questions, helping others acquire new perspectives - with the gifts of a doctor – helping others to live happier and healthier lives.

With coaching, I have truly found my calling.
