Being equity-centered means recognizing and addressing historical and persistent inequities. Everyone brings multiple identities that impact their experience of and access to power, privilege, and opportunity. As an equity-centered coach, I practice examining my own policies, approaches, and positionality when working with my clients and the barriers that may face them and their communities.
Being trauma-informed in my coaching allows me to create safer spaces and maintain health client-coach relationships. Our sessions will meaningfully engage with consent, physical and psychological safety, transparency, choice, and meaningful sharing of power. Please note that coaching is not therapy, nor is it a substitute for therapy.
