Coaching with Me

Determining a fit

I offer anyone who is interested in coaching with me free discovery call, to clarify what success means to you, and see if my support can guarantee those results.

Generally, my clients value personal-growth, creativity, equity, and social impact. Many of them are leaders, executives, community organizers, creatives and entrepreneurs. All of them envision an extraordinary life for themselves, and a better world for everyone.

Some useful distinctions:

  • Therapy is about healing the past; coaching is about action in the present and future.

  • Consulting prescribes expertise-based solutions; coaching puts your own wisdom into action.

  • Mentoring guides you based on a mentor’s wisdom; coaching guides you according to your own values and intentions.

  • Training follows a set curriculum toward set objectives; coaching reveals your own objectives and a path to fulfill them.

I am rigorously trained through the Academy for Coaching Excellence (ACE), an Accredited Coach Training Program through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), PCC Certification in process. 

Pricing 

I base my 2-session-per-month retainer fee on the following:

  • What will reflect the value you’ll receive?

  • What will give you more than your money’s worth?

  • What will honor a variety of situations? and

  • What will allow this work grow?

With that in mind, I ask that you pay on the sliding scale at a level that is a stretch but not a burden for you:

  • $200/month if it’s a stretch to be investing in this.

  • $260/month if you see you’re living comfortably.

  • $320/month if you’re flourishing financially.

This includes unlimited text and email support. Inquire with me about prices and perks for Executive Coaching - specialized coaching services for executives, entrepreneurs and leaders.

Bio

Experiencing the deep sense of purpose, existential meaning, and recurring burnout of being an artist, teacher and activist, my desire to be as grounded and balanced as my incredible mentors lead me to explore holistic wellness and personal development for a sense of wholeness and integration.

Seeing how art, social-justice and holistic health completed each other, I co-founded Holistic Underground, a community organization providing personal and professional development to leaders, creatives and change-agents. We gather and share tools, training and resources through the Allied Leadership Training for Embodied Resilience, and Organizational Development workshops and retreats, improving communication, self-care and interpersonal-allyship in organizations and teams. 

 

I grew up between 3 continents and cultures. Getting on a plane to Sudan, California or Dubai to move or visit family usually came with a change in my race, class and connotations of gender and so much more. Questioning my identity began early, and it lead me to become a musician, a community organizer, a healer, a teacher, the list goes on... I've always answered "who am I?" through what I do as much as where I'm from. 

When I was 15 years old, my mother drove herself to the hospital for a check up. 6 months later, she died due to medical malpractice. During this 6 months, my mother, a poet, speaker, activist and my best friend, could hardly write, and couldn't speak due to a breathing tube. But somehow, her hospital room was full with a sense of beauty... The doctors and nurses would always linger in there... 

With her eyes, she would see me for who I truly was. She showered me with "you can achieve all of your dreams, you are whole and complete, you have all your own answers." And she did the same for everyone who entered that room. 

This is how I discovered empowerment. This is why I am a coach. This was where I learned beyond doubt that your deepest challenges and greatest blessings can be one and the same. 

My commitment is to provide support and empowerment to the leaders and change-agents around me. If this interests you, let's talk!
