A Creative Alternative to Therapy
I help you stay true to yourself with coaching that combines the benefits of positive psychology with a creative, results-oriented approach for real change.
Personal growth can be an adventure. I design experiences to help you bust out of your comfort zone and help you take risks within a safe container. First stop? Come away with me for a Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires or a Wet Women Retreat in Brazil.
My book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics is a cult favorite. I’ve also written To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us. I’m at work on a memoir called Wet. Stay tuned. This book will be more than juicy, it will be wet!
Sasha’s work has been featured in:
What if you could shift “there’s something wrong with me” to “I’m not settling”?
“Sasha Cagen gives you the tools to not only understand and appreciate your true essence, but also you learn how to fully access your inner voice which will lead you to the people, places and situations that honor the very best of who you are. I highly recommend her books, classes and coaching if you have felt stagnant, alienated or as if something is missing.”
“Sasha Cagen is up to something that could be as important for women (and men) as The Feminine Mystique was years ago: We aren’t just halves of couples; we are distinct individuals—as complete and potentially happy alone as we are with our families and lovers.”
best-selling author of Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America and Bright-Sided How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America
“Sasha Cagen is something of a hero for the growing ranks of singletons who are learning to feel secure with their status, and she is often their public face. She appears frequently on popular national television and radio programs to explain that going solo is a viable, legitimate, and not necessarily lonely way to dwell in a city—a point that is surprisingly controversial given how many people are already living alone.”
Sociology Chair at NYU + author of Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone
“Working with Sasha has been instrumental in huge changes in my life. It has helped me define who I am and what I want. Helped me leave a job and find a new one, helped me have a wonderful long-distance relationship and helped me feel resilient when that relationship ended. It has made me proud of my independence and has made me want to work on my muscles of relationship communication. I am so grateful for the QA movement and the freedoms and confidences it has given me for the past year.”

“Thanks to all that I’ve learned with Sasha, I was able to express myself so clearly to my new partner. I finally had the language to verbalize my vision of an interdependent relationship. I met a man who shares that vision and appreciates that I’ve been so honest and upfront and ‘me.’ We connect fundamental values and that is gold!”
“Reading your books, visiting your website and taking your classes have been the pitstops of my journey back to my truly me.”
“I cannot WAIT to read Wet! I think you’re doing such a great service for women, reminding us that we have the right to live a turned-on life!”
