Phone Consultation

Thinking about Life Coaching?

We offer a free phone consultation to discuss your goals and how coaching might help you move forward and start living a better life.

The Process


As coaches, we provide you with the structure, tools, and road-map toward making a change in your life. Many people know how they want their life to be different, whether it’s finding a fulfilling job, a satisfying dating life, or the ability to relax. Life coaching can be helpful when you get stuck and feel unable to make the changes you envision.

We offer Coaching Services to everyone regardless of social identity (e.g., race, sexual orientation, religion, gender identity, etc.).

What are some common focuses of coaching?

Anyone can benefit from coaching! Whether you are considering a career change, trying to live a healthier lifestyle, attempting to better manage your stress, or want to communicate more effectively, one of our talented coaches can assist you throughout your transition. 

We have detailed information about the types of coaching here.

Although coaching can improve many areas of your life and our coaches will support you, coaching services are not psychotherapy. High levels of emotional distress make it difficult to create positive change in your life and requires more support than can be ethically provided during life-coaching.

Workshops and Speaking

As speakers and educators, we aim to make evidence-based mental health and wellness information easy to understand, engaging, and tailored to your particular group.

Examples of presentation topics:

  • Stress management
  • Workplace wellness or the work/life balance
  • Effective communication strategies
  • Facilitating the growth of women and people of color in leadership
  • Navigating role transitions and interpersonal conflicts
  • Addressing race and microaggressions in the workplace

We work collaboratively with clients to ensure that we understand the goals of the presentation, size of the group, and participants’ familiarity with the topic so that we can best engage the audience.

Please note that all of our coaches are PhD-level professionals who can speak to more than just the limited number of examples provided above.
  • Tanisha has done everything from tutoring elementary statistics to running a medical clinic.  She has trained medical professionals on how to implement person-focused, empathetic communication in their everyday practice with low-income and minority patients. She has developed workshops on racial identity development, gender identity development, inter-group or cross-racial dialogues, and effective communication. Tanisha is also a born-leader who was the first non-medical doctor to co-direct a community-based primary care clinic, so she knows how to successfully lead and manage groups of people from different backgrounds and levels of training. You are missing out on a fresh, unique perspective if you don’t have her on your team.
  • Jerika has given presentations to professionals about relationship dynamics and healthy communication practices. Additionally, she has worked with college students in both tutoring and mentoring roles to support learning in various content areas of psychology, as well as to assist with applications to post-baccalaureate programs.
