Real Live Strategies for An Empowered Life.

Are You Feeling Stuck in Life?

Are you feeling lost and stuck in life and not sure what to do? Do you feel stuck in a life you no longer want? Have you been feeling that way for years? Are you really stuck a rut, or does it feel that way?

Nobody likes that trapped feeling, no one likes feeling disempowered and stuck, and many dislike the feeling of uncertainty about what steps to take next. 

We are committed to improving lives and ensuring a brighter future around the world by providing the valuable power of life coaching, and resources to support individuals and families. 

We look beyond attire to how to show up at work in a manner that conveys the leader you are. Most importantly, how to show up and lead as your authentic self in your life, relationships, at work and in your business.

It’s easy to get so focused on other struggles of life that you forget personal growth and “me time“. While they sound separate, balance is required for success in all areas of life.

Utilize tools for those difficult conversations, discussing what matters and admitting what’s wrong. Take a strategic approach to language and communication that creates a win-win productive outcome.

Mindset Coaching

Mindset coaching is a form of coaching that helps a person identify the blocks and behaviors that stop them from being the ultimate version of themselves. It helps people overcome these mental blocks and achieve their goals.

Business Coaching & Mentoring

Are you ambitious and career-driven, but feel stuck? Together we will uncover what is holding you back and map out your next step actions.

Feels like most executive leadership programs are designed for men? They are, but my personalized program is for you!

In my one-on-one coaching sessions we work together monthly for 6 months or more. Each session is designed to uncover your specific needs, develop smart goals that are aligned to an action plan and support you in growing within your career or business.

If a problem exists, we are also often brought in at the executive level to triage, create, source, solve, and handle up at the cost of our own mental health and exhaustion.

This is where we come in as a coach. We explore the areas of your work life that have been challenging and are standing in the way of the career opportunities you are interested in manifesting. We seek to understand the workplace culture and dynamics that you are managing, while also getting curious about your personal leadership practices and behaviors that are working for you. We also uncover blind spots and support you in breaking up with any habitual patterns of self sabotage and limiting beliefs that are standing in the way of greater opportunity.

We can support you in taking the key steps to navigate towards your ideal career opportunity and once you have landed the role, we can work together to build your team so you are driving towards effective execution and sustaining success.

Why work with this life coach?

Like when choosing between different therapists or other mental health professionals, it’s important that your life coach empathizes with and deeply understands the struggles that you face.

If you are Black or African American, you may face trauma, racism, and microaggressions on a day-to-day basis. Our diverse life coaches are going to be able to speak to the racial trauma that you might be facing.

Our coaches can help you feel understood without adding intentional or unintentional prejudices, with cultural competence without causing harmful stereotyping receiving great care.

Mental healthcare has historically been a racist and prejudicial system. Black people are more likely to be misdiagnosed within the mental health field, simply because counselors and therapists are not properly trained in cultural competence. This leads to unconscious biases, which in turn lead to misunderstandings and misdiagnosis, causing unnecessary suffering for clients.

Implicit bias and racial disparities have always been a problem within the mental health community. There have been many studies done that prove black people are not given the same quality of healthcare as white people. While there is a spotlight on these issues, it is far from being resolved in a way that will promote sustainable equality. That’s why it’s so important to find a mental health professional who truly understands who you are and recognizes the shared experiences of trauma within the African American community that affect all of its members.
