Alexis Rockley (she/her) is a queer and neurodivergent writer, evidence-based edutainer, and neuro-affirming life/work coach obsessed with translating the science of self-compassion & anti-grind productivity into practical resources for people who grew up on the Internet.
She's the author of Find Your FuckYeah: Stop Censoring Who You are and Discover What You Really Want (via Chronicle Books) and host of the voicemail-style podcast, Call Me When You Get This. Her work has been featured by Upworthy, SoulPancake, ATTN:, The Washington Post, and more.
Forever curious, she earned her Specialization Certificate in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019, and her Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy certification from The Embody Lab in early 2023. When she's not nerding out on liberation psychology, sociology, and somatics, she can be found rescuing plants from Ikea and throwing one-woman dance parties in her kitchen.
Come for the science of self-compassion, stay for the dragging of the personal growth industrial complex lol

I zigged and zagged, that's for sure.
In 2017, I left my creative, stable, and decade-long career as a high-profile retail executive (and the intense burnout that came along with it) FULL of unanswered questions:
What do you do after you land your dream job, but it’s making you miserable? If you let yourself slow down, do you lose your ambition? Why is there such a huge gap between the hard science of happiness and trendy self-help advice? What does it feel like to actually like being alive?
Six years, three professional certificate programs, one published book, and hundreds of hours of learning later, I’m still full of unanswered questions—except now, asking them is my job. 😂
Like any multi-hyphenate, my work takes many forms—workshops, somatic & liberation psychology-focused coaching, edutaining content creation, podcasting, speaking—and all of it is about closing the gap between science and self-help. While having as much fun as I can, of course.
