Our Mission

Better Life Choices of New York is a mentoring, self-empowerment and life skills organization, created by our Founder, and certified professional life architect, Stefanie. BLCNY specializes in emotional health, pain management, change management, personal development, and empowerment, for all, specifically, girls and women of all ages, beginning as young as age five years of age. We are committed to being guides, and advocates of self-love, self-esteem, and self-worth, self-awareness, and self-ownership, through inspiration, motivation, and educational coaching. BLCNY aids all races, backgrounds, sexual identification and preference in becoming self-empowered individuals and effective leaders that learn to grow so that they can be of service, live beyond limitations and impact communities beyond their reach.

The Life Coaching, and public speaking components of BLCNY are open to everyone who wants to make a Better Life Choice, and that includes boys and men.

A Message From Our Founder

"I wanted to create a space where there were fewer routines, with raw, real, conversations, that turn into more action. A place where seasoned adults pass down their wisdom and savvy youngins toss up their knowledge. A place where girls and women don't feel they need permission to be great. Where being assertive, knowing what you want and aspiring to be more than an assistant, someone's domestic partner or caregiver isn’t viewed as a bad thing. I was so lost, waiting for happiness and growth to appear magically. I was often told to "Be happy, love yourself, figure it out, do better," but no one ever showed me how to achieve these things. I envision BLCNY being that "how to" blueprint place for all, especially for girls and women."

Stefanie, Life Architect
