Fierce Hearts. Courageous Leaders. The revolution begins within.

As a somatic leadership coach, facilitator, and consultant, I’d love to support your staff. I work in collaboration with the consulting firm, Alvarez Porter Group (APG).

APG provides results focused consultant services to organizations and leaders like you. We share your commitment to justice, equity, and sustainability and work with you to turn that into meaningful and enduring change.

I have worked for nearly two decades with social change non-profits, educational institutions and state government departments. Prior to coaching and facilitation, I worked as an environmental attorney and a fundraising professional. I raised over $100 million while working with local, statewide and national focused resource development departments.

As a member of the Alvarez Porter Group team, I provide leadership coaching, facilitation, consulting, and workshops for organizations. These services are designed to support the staff in their professional role so that they and the organization may thrive and advance important social change. Together we will customize the facilitation, consulting, or coaching scope of work.

I enjoy partnering with people as they reconnect with why they work for social change in the first place. Often this involves addressing burnout, navigating conflict, articulating vision and values, cultivating joy practice and finding ways to contribute their ideas, gifts, and talents daily.

There are many topics we may cover and here are a few to get you started thinking:

  • Tapping into and embracing your leadership qualities
  • Somatic awareness: stress management, body awareness, nervous system education, self-regulation strategies
  • Fostering resilience and balance in your work life relationship.
  • Befriending interpersonal obstacles
  • Courageous conversations
  • Addressing burnout, fostering wellbeing and healthy boundaries
  • How to practice anti-racism
  • Raising racial consciousness and engaging with internalized racism

Typically during the coaching process, we meet every other week for a regularly scheduled session by phone or video chat. Together, we will establish goals, identify skill-building opportunities, track progress and tune into the real life factors impacting the staff person and their work. We may also schedule sessions for specific skill building and direct feedback and guidance on your written materials.

Our world needs your every day leadership!
