We do this by identifying and removing old patterns & identifying your challenges in managing life transitions while teaching you specific strategies and tools that will aid you in clearing what you are ready to let go, while building self-love and self-trust.
Unlike other coaching that is generic or focuses on vague and esoteric concepts, my coaching is specific to the experiences and needs of women of color and is focused on keeping conversations 100% real and doing the deep work that can be uncomfortable and sometimes scary, but necessary to move clients towards feeling empowered to live their lives authentically.
