The teacher serves as a mirror but also encourages your ability to trust in yourself. Over time, there's a shift of allegiance. The obstacles begin to seem temporary, and what's permanent is the wisdom. - Pema Chodron
My coaching services support the cultivation and integration of three crucial competencies: racial self-awareness, mindfulness, and leadership.
As a coach, I meet you where you are in your understanding, without an agenda of "making you a better person." Our work together supports you in feeling more connected to your mind, heart, and work in the world. You learn to pause and to reflect. I pay attention to how you are relating to your life, not so much the story you have about it. You discover that the way you tend to think has a pattern that trips you up; understanding that pattern frees you up. I offer pragmatic strategies rooted in Western psychology, Buddhist philosophy, and mindfulness practices that support clarity, stability, and courage. As we progress, information becomes knowledge that matures into insight, more unified and accessible. You become more aware of your life as a racial being, and more honest about your impact and responsibility to social well-being.
I work with a limited number of one-on-one coaching clients in a seven-session cycle. Priority is given to individuals who have participated in the Mindful of Race training, workshops or talks, and who value a contemplative approach to learning.
