Gia Hasan (she/they) is a Certified Facilitator of the Resilience Toolkit, a leadership coach, a meditation instructor, and works in clinical and functional nutrition. She works with populations experiencing chronic pain, and chronic disease, and works across sectors designing school and after-school programs for youth, and working with survivors of sexual abuse. She uses a whole-person, whole systems-framework in coaching leaders and executives to invite in new, more inclusive and liberative visions on the micro and meso scale. Using the principles of trauma-informed care, Gia aims to create containers for her clients to explore the complex intersections of our human experience.
Born and raised in England to South Asian immigrant parents, Gia moved to the USA 18 years ago, and currently lives on Piscataway Land (Alexandria, VA). Before entering the field of integrative coaching and facilitation, Gia took a break to stay at home with her two children. Prior to motherhood, her first career was in writing and journalism, working in Egypt, where she advocated for refugees.
She is an eternal student, and is particularly interested in trauma, resilience, somatics, and complexity. With a love for earth wisdom and earth medicine, she is currently fascinated by all things mushroom related. As well as storytelling through writing poetry and prose, she loves to tell stories through food and creates new recipes in her kitchen lab. Her ethic is firmly rooted in love and harm reduction, and loves to identify patterns in all places, especially relationships, constellations, the body, and the earth. Currently, her favorite words are “restorying” and “nourish”.
