Welcoming All:

I’m committed to being welcoming and inclusive of all races, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, cultural or class backgrounds, and abilities, and I’m grateful that my coaching experience includes that whole range.

I continue to build my own cultural awareness and competence, by paying for training and consulting on a regular basis. I know it’s a lifelong learning process too, so I won’t always get it right. I welcome you sharing your perspective with me. I can handle it. There’s no out-group in my world.

It’s also true that my approach seems to appeal more to women, as I’ve discovered over the years. That’s why I chose to create messaging on this website that clarifies my focus on women. I have also found that my work appeals to those who are gender nonconforming.

Including those who are less heard is part of my purpose in this life. Social and racial justice issues are near and dear to my heart. At my core I’m about making sure all voices are heard, especially those who feel like it’s hard to speak up, for any reason. I believe the well-being of all depends on listening and including everyone. And my slice of that vision is to help amplify the voices of the unheard.
