I use a holistic approach that works with the body, mind, soul and spirit to assist people break through limiting beliefs, become more aware of their gifts, strengths, values and needs. I help clients integrate that in their life and work. As a coach I am trained to ask rigorous questions, listen actively, observe and provide a safe and courageous space for people to discover their own resourcefulness and creative solutions.
I include in my approach appreciative inquiry, somatic experiencing, motivational interviewing and the 5 pathways to transformational coaching (1.Exploring Needs and Values; 2. Experiencing The Moment; 3. Expanding The View; 4. Embracing the Shadow; 5. Envisioning The Future).
Areas of focus: career coaching, leadership coaching, academic coaching, communication problems, stress management, conflict management, relationship coach, empowering men and women, addressing big life transitions, multicultural concerns, gender and sexuality/LGBTQ issues or challenges.
I practice in: all areas please inquire
Languages I speak: Portuguese and English
I am a coach in training with Leadership That Works, a comprehensive 9-month coaching certification program. Upon completion by this summer, I will become a “Certified Professional Coach” as accredited by the International Coaching Federation, one of the leading and globally renowned bodies in the field.
Since day one of training we practice coaching and I have already collected a strong set of tools, strategies and methods to support clients. I also have the support of the program and my mentors to assist me with my one to one coaching clients. That means you are not alone and I am not alone. There is a strong network of support behind us both.
I value being of service and doing work that supports social change. I have done that through anthropology and research as well as my work as an educator with teens and kids. Now I want to do that through coaching. My hope is to to foster social change by helping individuals, leaders and organizations to build self-awareness and attune to their purpose and passions.
As I am currently a coach in training I am offering low-bono coaching, aka pay what you can. If you are or someone you know might be interested in trying coaching at an affordable price feel free to schedule your first free session/lesson where we will do a first exploratory chat to answer any questions and to see if we are a good fit!
