I'm a positive-psychology certified coach, published author, and online edu-tainer obsessed with helping you understand your brain—so you can figure out how to like being alive.
I translate the science of happiness (ok, more like...wellbeing) into practical resources for anyone who grew up on the internet.
My work takes many forms: writing, workshops, 1:1 coaching, podcasting, edutaining videos, online courses, speaking—
—and all of it is about closing the gap between science and self-help.
GREAT! DO YOU HAVE A MORE "OFFICIAL" SORT OF BIO?
Oh, that "verified blue checkmark," third-person, formal bio sort of thing?
You got it.
Alexis Rockley (she/her) is a writer, edu-tainer, and positive psychology-certified & trauma-informed coach obsessed with translating the science of self-compassion & anti-grind productivity into practical resources for anyone who grew up on the Internet.
She's the author of Find Your F*ckyeah: 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 psychology, sociology, somatics (and searching for decolonized perspectives in all three) she can be found rescuing plants from Ikea and throwing one-woman dance parties on Instagram.
so how'd you get into this kind of work?
...by pivoting through burnout, multiple careers, and a quarter-life-crisis, like any good millennial.
Kidding kidding jk, generations aren't a monolith and no one can be categorized as "good." (Not kidding about my existential reboot at age 28, though.)
