Coaching Services

Coaching is more directive and collaborative than psychotherapy, emphasizing the application of practical skills in the here-and-now over the analysis of past events.

I ONLY offer consulting to leaders who are part of the following communities:  

  • Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)
  • LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual)
  • White and heterosexual accomplices* committed to eradicating racism, sexism, homophobia, and other institutional prejudices from their workplaces and lives. 

*Accomplices are willing to give or lose something in the causes of justice.

Accomplices are willing to sacrifice one (or more) of the following things for equality:

  • Money
  • Their personal safety or security (e.g. being the “white shield” between activists of color and the police at protests)
  • Their professional and/or personal reputation
  • Friendships and family relationships


  • Identifying, coping with, and eliminating toxic behavior from your personal and work life
  • Identifying, coping with and eliminating white supremacy, sexism, homophobia, and other
    prejudices at work and in your personal life 
  • Identifying false allies at work and in your personal life–and protecting yourself from harm 
  • Making an exit plan from a toxic work situation 
  • Surviving and coping in a marginalized identity


Your unique needs will determine the cost of consulting or coaching.
