“As a new business owner, I worked with LaWanda on setting up my business structure and processes. Throughout our time working together, I was fully engaged by LaWanda’s friendly and inquisitive demeanor. Although I was eager to race ahead with my plans to start my business, LaWanda encouraged me to take the time necessary to address the many important details first so that I would have a solid foundation to build upon. She asked a lot of questions that I didn’t know the answer to, but with time and homework the answers came.  In moments where I felt stuck or resistant, LaWanda provided consistent support that helped me move through these phases. I was truly impressed with how LaWanda so skillfully helped me to weave together my passion with the new skills and actions I needed to take – making it all much more interconnected.  She supported me in developing skills that I carried far beyond our time together. Skills that have allowed me to demonstrate the professionalism needed to attract new clients. Her observational skills, knowledge of human behavior, and business acumen combine for practical and achievable business development.  If you are looking to start a new business or simply redefining your current business processes, I would highly recommend LaWanda as someone who can lead you on that journey with rigor and grace.”

“Her skills and competencies as a somatic coach are undoubtedly very strong but what makes LaWanda an exceptional coach in my view, is her humanity, her depth and her capacity to navigate the delicate and complex territory of personal transformation with a sense of grounded compassion and inner wisdom. Her background as a senior executive adds a dimension of pragmatism and lived experience in the field of leadership and broadens her offer to anyone who is willing to fulfil their leadership potential. I would highly recommend LaWanda as a talented somatic coach, capable to lead both individuals and larger groups on the path of embodied leadership, personal growth and somatic transformation.”

For once I felt as though someone heard me and appreciated the skills and talents I bring to the table.  LaWanda sees through the layers and barriers we put up to hide behind.
