For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone.
The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes.
To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.

Executive Equity Coaching


Ten 90-minutes sessions over 20-30 weeks


As an executive or senior leader, you may find it challenging to process your relationship to social and positional power. I help leaders who are ready to learn, unlearn, and be challenged to operationalize their divestment from unjust and inequitable systems.

I do this by providing theory, exercises, and homework customized to your particular lived experiences and lack thereof. You will have access to my compassionate and firm guidance as you navigate developing an awareness of your relationship to social and positional power to interrogate the ways that particular social systems work really well for you.

My goal is to help you develop and operationalize an equity lens so that you are empowered to identify and untether your investments from and reliance on systems of oppression. Key areas you will develop:

  • racial literacy
  • emotional fortitude to receive feedback unfiltered
  • integration of personal development with daily practices

Ad hoc Equity Coaching


Two 60-minutes sessions over 2-3 weeks


Equity and justice work is a life-long a journey. I understand that this work is never complete. Event if you have attended a multitude of workshops, trainings, certifications…you will still need support in practicing applying an equity lens to new incidents in life or at work.

Wherever you are in your journey, I can hold space for respite, freshen your travel gear, offer insights, encouragement, and fuel for those instances when you might need a refresh.

These sessions are particularly useful when you need accountability. Be prepared for me to help you also be accountable to yourself and to the minoritized communities you impact.

Ad hoc Equity Coaching sessions are most beneficial for people who have completed a round of Executive Equity Coaching or feel confident that they understand their social and positional relationships with power and privilege…and need a session or two to debrief, process, and strategize ways to align with the most disadvantaged in our world.

Be prepared to practice non-closure and sitting with discomfort as I attempt to accelerate your learning in these limited sessions.

Workplace Wellness Coaching*


Six 60-minute sessions over 10 weeks


It is a heartbreaking reality that too many organizations—despite their very articulate, professed commitments to equity—perpetuate and uphold White supremacist cultures and cause unspeakable harm to those who don’t live in cis-white bodies.

Not everyone is able or wants to walk away from racist or transphobic work environments.

In our sessions, I will help you:

  • develop emotional and self-advocacy language and frameworks
  • identify your core, non-negotiable values
  • define boundaries so your labor isn’t exploited
  • interrogate how cis-white supremacy influences your relationship to work
  • prioritize your well-being by investing in community care as a path to radical self-care and liberation.

*In recognition of economic inequity, these sessions are exclusive for my beloved QTBIPoC family and offered on a sliding scale basis. Simply indicate your budget in “Additional Information” event if that amount is zero.
