Today’s blog post will be all about why I decided to launch a coaching practice and the services I will be providing.
My why: Since I was a young girl, I have always helped people with relational issues. I didn’t realize I was passionate about it until having my own child. God had already aligned the academia part because I was taking Child Development and Family Studies classes and excelling in it, however after my relationship failed and I understood the data centered around children coming from broken homes. I made it my life’s mission to promote healthy relationships.
I am currently in the process of receiving my state licensure to practice as a counselor in the state of Texas but in the meantime, I wanted to still offer my services. I had observed several counselors and therapist I follow on social media offering the same services, so I took the leap of faith and jumped out there!
In November of 2020 I was talking to a male friend of mine. He was struggling in the communication area when it came to dating. Really struggling in how to engage in an interesting conversation. So, I did an exercise with him and by the end of it, I was like you see how we learned new things about one another, but the conversation didn’t feel like a chore? Needless to say, he agreed and that day this seed was planted.
I want to teach singles how to date well and identify their purpose mate. The person God created and designed for you. This is such a taboo subject but I am believer in alignment and I believe God is intentional, so why would he lack in the area of love?
I also work with couples, since my mid-twenties I have had a discernment about people being paired with the right people. I also know through our history as African Americans we may not always have the best models for healthy relationships. I’m able to identify those patterns of toxicity that may be seeping into your relationships and give you practical and strategic ways to break them.
So, you may be asking yourself what does a relationship and dating coach do?
As your dating coach I will:
Help you position yourself better on the dating scene. First, I start with healing work (internally) and work with the outer. I will do an audit of your clothing and day to day routines. Most importantly I help with communication techniques and we practice with mock dates. I also suggest date ideas and compatibility issues. Whatever your hang-ups may be when it comes to dating, I help you identify them and come up with a strategy to help you attract the right partner.
As your relationship coach:
I will provide tools to help your relationship thrive. I help teach you as a couple a teamwork model through communication and conflict resolution strategies. With couples I have helped in the past I have witnessed an increase in trust, my couples walk away feeling seen, heard, appreciated and supported. Let me do the same for you.
