Dr. Sonja Stribling

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Best Selling Author

Former TV Show Host on the Bravo Network

Combat Veteran

Dr. Sonja Stribling is a Licensed Clinical Counselor turned Life and Business Strategist, a former HR Director, as well as a highly decorated combat veteran who retired as a Major after serving in the United States Army for 21 years. A master in empowering audiences to be resilient, this former semi-pro basketball player, and mother of three boys has had a life full of obstacles to overcome.

As a mother of 3 boys and a divorcee after being married for 18 years, she knows all to well the mindset of a woman who wants more but just doesn’t know what that more looks like or how to get to it. But one thing she does know after living the life of:

  • Having a child at 15 years old

  • Being raped and left for dead at 17 years old

  • Joining the military and retiring after serving her Country for 21 years

  • Being a combat veteran (serving 3 combat tours one to include Iraq for 15 month)

  • Being married for 18 years, and going through a divorce that took 3 years to dissolve

  • Losing houses and cars

  • Being clinically depressed

She now specializes in empowering women and her audience to discover and use their inner POWER to ascend to the next level in their career, relationships, lives and businesses. Dr. Stribling emulates how a Next Level Woman lives and looks like after being broken. She believes if a woman can have a next level mindset, make next level commitments; and create next level actions, it will ultimately result in Next Level Living.

One of the remarkable surprises, and one that I totally did not expect, was who I became through the process. Pain changes us. It makes us kinder and gentler and more aware. I became all those things. I love the person I am today, and you can love the new you, too. I can help with that. -Dr. Sonja Stribling
