I am a therapist who is certified in Brainspotting & EMDR. I also integrate Somatic Experiencing and IFS into the therapeutic process. Self discovery, personal exploration and trauma resolution are part of the process in which healing is promoted in the therapy room. Neuroscience based methods provide quicker, more thorough and deeper healing of where trauma has been held and may be interfering with your life.
Hi, I’m Coach Colette!
As a Black woman, I know first-hand the challenges of dealing with the impacts of microaggressions, racism, and other forms of discrimination. I also am keenly aware of the under-representation in many industries, which leads to the “only” syndrome.
I’ve been working in the personal development and wellness industry for 15 years. By training, I’m a certified stress management coach and practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT-Tapping). I’m also certified in Mental Health First Aid by the National Council for Behavioral Health and trained in Trauma-Informed Care principles by NYS OASAS.
To guide you on your path to wellness and freedom from oppression, I offer virtual sessions focused on healing, resilience, and self-care.
I’ve set an intention to #DisruptStrong; in particular, to disrupt the myth of the “Strong Black Woman,” who is supposed to be strong for everyone but herself. Instead, I believe that being strong is based on your personal journey to greater self-awareness. It’s also based on your willingness to be vulnerable and seek out support — which you are doing right now!
My goal is to create a safe space for you to have honest, healing conversations. I will support you to feel a sense of worthiness, to know that your dreams, your health, and your life matters.
Certified Life & Wellness Coach
I’ve helped my clients envision what’s possible for their lives while doing deep transformative work. I have experienced first hand what it is like to be in a place of transition, where one feels stuck, misunderstood and lost. My goal with my clients is to support them and empower them to live a life that is authentic and aligned to their core values. Together we can explore and create a roadmap designed for their unique journey. Which will result in a happier, healthier, more meaningful life.
In addition to my passion for transforming lives, I have extensive experience within the corporate realm and was given the opportunity to work closely with C-level executives to support different teams in creating wellness for employees. I currently hold a degree in International Relations with a minor in Human Sexuality. Furthermore, I am now a certified coach who is in love with the path I have created for myself and fully committed to achieving a happier and healthier life.
You can find me spending quality time with my husband, friends and family, meditating, dancing my heart out, relaxing and/or connecting with nature. I also spend a great deal of time delving into my personal and professional development. Most importantly, I am an advocate for loving and investing in myself.
Hi there ✋😁
I’m a Transformative Fitness, Nutrition, and Wellness Coach. I’m on a mission to motivate and inspire individuals to live their best lives by leading fun, but effective dance, strength, and yoga classes, AND by sharing engaging online content. I’ve been teaching group classes and leading one on one personal training sessions for more than eight years, but I’ve got a lifetime of experience with physical activity! So movement is in my blood.
What I love more than anything is sharing the experience of movement with others. And I truly believe that the best way to exercise, for strength, better health, and happiness, is to do something you enjoy! That’s why I aim to make every session fun!
I really love to work with individuals and groups that have a passion for learning and are open to slightly unconventional methods of practicing yoga/exercising. As a personal trainer, I’ve got quite a bit of experience tailoring programs to fit the needs of my students and clients. So whether you’re a total beginner or a seasoned practitioner, I’m happy to create a plan that is designed specifically for you.
