What I’m Offering Right Now:
I coach white people who want to understand white supremacy, interrupt it, and create more liberation for all people. My clients are often committed to racial justice, in theory, but aren’t sure how to live out that value in their day-to-day lives. If you’re a white person who wants to really embody and practice racial justice, learn more here and please get in touch!
Coaching posits that the person closest to a given problem is closest to its solution. The idea that people intrinsically know what’s best for themselves resonates deeply with my previous training in asset-based community development and culturally responsive education. I’ve received coaching training, and had the chance to coach all kinds of people one-on-one and in group settings. I’ve also developed coaching curriculum and trainings for others, and regularly seek out coaching for myself.
The opportunity to coach people facing significant challenges has pushed and stretched me into being a better version of myself, and the act of coaching itself has felt like coming home. I’ve discovered that coaching combines my skills and talents into a singular practice that I simply love. Coaching others, challenging and intense as it can be, doesn’t feel like work. In the words of the poet Mayda del Valle, “It’s not occupation or a vocation; it’s a calling – and I’m replying.”
