"I am so glad that you are here!"
Hello, I am Dr. Debi (a nickname given to me by my clients) and one of the facets of what I do, in addition to equity consulting/training and dynamic powerful speaking for change, is to support predominantly professional Black, Brown, Indigenous Women, experiencing racialized trauma and minoritization who I call, historically resilent, to coach them to individually and collectively use their strengths at the intersections to stretch how they learn and apply what they discover towards becoming the best version of themselves and release what they are to gift on this earth!
On the other side of that I work with those who desire to become restorative justice warriors, allies, accomplices, and or abolitionists in the lives of women who experience racialized trauma and minoritization.
One of my favorite quotes says, “For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.” ~Michelle Obama
So, let’s talk more about you and how your journey can begin! Why?
You are probably reading all of this because you are aware that you have more insight to explore and you have a need be ignited to go beyond your current level of inspiration. You want to learn tools and skill sets for how to effectively heal, navigate, lead, explore, affirm, and develop the intersections of your life beyond the ability to simply dream and to include the ability to believe and create sustainable desired change.
I know that you have chosen to do what others have said you should do, what you felt obligated to do, or what you assumed you desired to do all in addition to addressing your day-to-day lived experiences including those experiences producing racial and gender trauma as Black, Brown and Indigenous Women. You may be a Woman identifying as someone who recognizes that based on your relationships and interactions with Black, Brown and Indigenous Women you need to learn more about how to grow in establishing authentic relationships without causing racialized or minoritized harm towards them.
All of this can be a lot to take on without support, tools, or guidance! This is where I can come in to support that need! I do know that if you want the opportunity to declutter what is currently ineffective in your life and in your relationships with others, then this can leave your mind, soul, and spirit in a space to believe in your dreams for change and intentionally create your desired outcome into an actualized reality!
Does this sound like you? Learn how I can support you on your journey towards becoming the best version of yourself that you can be! I invite you to go to the services page and schedule a discovery appointment with me to see if, together, we are a fit to get you lit!
