Hi! I'm Dr. Flora!

I am a mindset transformation coach, board certified internist, speaker, and an infertility warrior. My own self growth journey stemmed from my experiences as a first generation South Asian, a woman in medicine, postpartum depression, motherhood, and, most importantly, my battle with secondary infertility. There was a point in time where I truly felt stuck in a negative cycle of thinking despite all of my accomplishments.

Mindset shifting changed my life. I not only started to apply these tools and techniques with my patients, but realized there were women all around me – driven, accomplished, and intelligent – who also felt like I did at one point – stuck and dissatisfied with their current state. I launched a successful 1:1 mindset transformation coaching business in 2022 to help women build a foundation of tools to apply to their daily obstacles, help them rewire their patterns of thinking, and reach a state of contentment.

More about me

I am a first generation South Asian American, born in the US who grew up in a very traditional Gujarati household. I absolutely love our colorful culture and the sense of home I feel when talking about and participating in it. However, like many, there were ingrained cultural teachings that simply didn’t apply to the modern world or with my growth mindset. I’ve worked hard to identify, label, and troubleshoot on how to undo toxic patterns in order to achieve peace and contentment. And, I can teach you too!

My Aha! moment came in 2019 after I was diagnosed with secondary infertility and started my IVF journey. It was the year that changed me. After multiple unsuccessful cycles and devastating miscarriages, we decided to stop pursuing more IVF rounds so we can move forward as a fabulous family of three. It’s been THE BEST decision for me and my family.

Yes, I still practice medicine!

I received my medical degree from the University of Arizona and completed my residency training in internal medicine at the University of California – Irvine. I love practicing primary care, building relationships with my patients, and guiding them with their health. As a multi passionate person, I love wearing multiple hats: coach, creator, speaker, mom, wife, sister, and doctor!

More facts about me:

  • I am married to my college sweetheart, Sanjay, an interventional pediatric cardiologist.
  • We have a beautiful daughter named Gia, a NICU warrior and a beautiful soul who keeps us on our toes.
  • Our newest addition to the family is the cuddliest, fluffiest mini goldendoodle, Lulu.. I enjoy fitness, travel, dancing, being a foodie, and delving into wellness.

Testimonials and Features

After coaching with Flora I am able to feel joy/contentment in my personal life despite work stressors. My growth mindset now means evolving into a better version of myself; one where I can be present with my partner and kids and still meet work goals (all while continuing to improve that balance and work toward thriving in all aspects of my life).

Brittany Weller

Now I am more of a believer that what I think and feel matters but I can also be in control of that. I can set good intentions in place while minimizing my expectation for perfection and that is okay. Flora felt like a genuine friend the entire time. One who challenges you when you need it and understands you when you feel like you’re out of whack. Now I feel like I have tools that are for ME. I feel like I have a better way of tackling those things that bring me down mentally and physically.

Nisha Mehta

I now have more confidence and know that my mindset can change. I can change it on my own. I will still have negative thoughts but I can quickly shift the thought to something else. I LOVE working with Flora. She is authentic, real and just a force of good energy. She lets me know that I am not alone and that there are so many others who are going through a similar journey. I now I feel more confident after doing the cup exercise. I have the ability to switch my mindset on my own and no one can remove that from me.

Mira B

I have been given tools to help me when I am triggered or going through a hard time. No it doesn’t take away the pain but it helps me to get back to the middle ground and focus myself on being content and happy. I loved working with Dr. Flora. She is so amazing and inspiring. She has made me a stronger person and also has been so much help for me dealing with secondary infertility to not feel as alone in that journey as well. I am so grateful for all that she has taught me over the last few months. My mind is clearer. I know how to compartmentalize, I know how to pick myself back up when I am down, I know how to be kinder to myself and how to set boundaries with things to fill my cup.

I really enjoyed working with Dr. Flora. Very personable, easy to talk to and efficient. Appreciated when she reached out periodically on voxer to touch base and hold me accountable. Made sure to bring things back to concrete lifestyle changes I could actually implement.

Happy Client

I really enjoyed working with Flora. She is real. She is accommodating and flexible which I know is a challenge when running your own gig.

Content Client

I think I’ve become more confident and comfortable with putting up boundaries. As a South Asian female, I have always felt like I had to put others before myself. My sessions with Flora have shown me how to take care of myself and my mental health-but still be there for my loved ones. She’s reminded me that I’m allowed to live my life.
