Tanisha

This is also not a place where I tell my clients how the live their lives, or give them orders.  This is a place of healing, understanding, and forward movement toward the person you want to be with me as a guide.

My Approach

I work with people on motivation, mindfulness, stress management skills, and organization. I typically focus on life transitions, such as career or relationship changes, but I am trained to work with a variety concerns, including emotional wellness, life skills, boundary setting, and overall personal growth.  I challenge people to be the best, most successful versions of themselves in their careers, relationships, and overall mental health. 

My intersectional approach is also an important component of my work. I strive to understand how your race, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, age, etc. impact your current issues so that we can use all of your strengths and areas of resiliency to overcome whatever mental blocks you are experiencing. 

I create a unique, personalized coaching plan with each of my clients that guides the work we do together. I act as an accountability buddy to ensure that things get done. While I provide you with new skills to organize your life and make your goals a reality, I also use your strengths to shape what our sessions and determine our coaching path. 

What I believe.

I am curious about how individuals develop their sense of self, I advocate and foster the skills of all people, especially those traditionally marginalized for their race, gender, age, etc.

One way to find the key that unlocks the road to success is to focus on a person’s goals, wishes, and desires for one’s life while understanding the unique interaction between the self and the environment. As a woman of color with my own unique intersections, I strive to understand my clients and discover innovative ways to help them achieve their goals in a way that feels authentic.

Things I have done.

I have assisted people in gaining life skills. For instance, I taught ex-offenders coping & communication skills that helped them gain employment and reintegrate into society. I have taught people of color to overcome race-based trauma and stress through mindfulness and empowerment-based skills.

I have trained others (including business leaders, medical professionals, and everyday people) in person-focused, empathetic communication, and awareness of diversity-related issues.  For example, I’ve created workshops on racial identity development, gender identity development, inter-group or cross-racial dialogues, and effective communication. I also have managed teams. I was once a co-director of a community-based medical clinic servicing low-income, uninsured people while managing a group of over over 10 leaders from different backgrounds and levels of training

I love a challenge and I love helping people accomplish goals that they never imagined they could conquer.
