Over my years of experience as a counselor, consultant, and coach I have witnessed many tragic situations and very challenging obstacles people from BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities have had to overcome. A major challenge in some people’s lives is when there is race-based traumatic stress and oppression. Many minorities suffer from the impact of stigma and discrimination on their mental, physical health and experiences of life. Reaching out for help can be difficult under regular circumstances. When biases (sometimes implicit, sometimes overt) impede one’s progress it can make the situation more complex and difficult to overcome.
If you are facing these challenges, my hope is to deeply connect with you and help you reach your full potential so that you have success in reaching your goals. I strive to provide culturally responsive coaching. Everyone has identities influenced by ethnicity, race, gender, religion, age, vocation, nationality, sexual orientation, country of origin, our experiences through life and more! I know I am continually educating myself, growing my cross-cultural interpersonal skills, and honoring my clients’ multiple influences. I want to empower you so that you think creatively and resourcefully in order to transcend your obstacles and thrive in your workplace. I want to be your ally and advocate. Everyone has the right to fair treatment and pursuit of optimal living. I would love to help you chart a clear course to assert your will, allowing you to experience the fulfilling and enjoyable life you deserve.
