About Me - My Biography

Hi, I am Ioana Popa, MD, BCC and I bring a unique blend of psychology, science, life coaching, education and spiritual care.


I am the co-founder of the Team For The Soul™ that supports compassionate leaders, healers, educators, entrepreneurs and caregivers on their life journey to achieve their highest potential while doing what they love toward the betterment of humanity.


Although I am originally trained as a physician, I am also a life and leadership coach, a spiritual care provider, educator, workshop presenter, speaker and program developer. All these are supported by 3 decades of devoted study, training and experience in different disciplines.


As a life coach, I walk alongside my clients to bring them steadfast hope that change is possible, no matter how difficult.


As a program developer, I recently launched an online digital course: The Renewal In Action™. This course is a unique transformative and practical program designed from the inside-out to help prevent burnout, connect with core values, integrate mind, body, heart and soul, and create a foundational daily renewal blueprint to be used for years to come.


On a personal level, I am a proud mother of 27- and 25-year-old daughters and 10- and 8-year-old stepchildren. Together with my husband, Sebastien Falardeau, a chaplain and life coach, we  share the vision of helping people grow along their life’s journey!
