You’ve felt overworked and undervalued, and you know something needs to change about your career.

When you’ve been considering a career change for awhile, you have your go-to people to turn to for advice.

Friends are just a text away for emotional support. A partner can be a loving sounding board.

 

But there are times in your career when you need a different kind of one-on-one support.

 

Not from your parents, partner, or best friend. 

But in a devoted space — with a skilled coaching professional who will take the time to listen to your desires, understand your uniqueness, and help you overcome the analysis paralysis that prevents you from going where you want to go. 

And not with any coach either.

I hold space for the unique challenges that women of color face in their careers and the desires they have never spoken out loud. 

For example:

  • Tired of code switching at work? 
  • Done with feeling overworked and underpaid — much less than your white counterpart with fewer years of experience than you — but not sure what to do about it?
  • Thinking about a complete career change entirely or dreaming about starting your own company? 

I know you. I am you. And I’ve got you.

Working with Tara is how I imagine every TV star quarterback feels as he is greeted by the head cheerleader in the Homecoming episode. Except homecoming is every other week, and your cheerleader could out-cheer every fictional cheerleader, any day.

Tara met me with the grace and compassion I needed as I was recovering from several discouraging workplace experiences and exploring the world of self-employment. She made space for the whole spectrum of emotions I was feeling, helped me detangle the chaos, and guided me as I figured out my next steps. Every woman of color should have someone like Tara in their life.

Not sure what package might be the best fit? 

Let’s book a chemistry session to figure out the next step for you.

Tara is one of the most refreshing coaches I’ve ever had! Each session with her was creative, positive, and genuinely fun. Tara supported me to dream big and accelerated my leadership journey as a young woman of colour in unimaginable ways. This was a truly transformative experience empowered me to bridge my personal and professional identities.

Tara’s personalized activities, fascinating questions, and rare insights in each session led me to discover more about my leadership style, my unique strengths, and ultimately equipped me with the skills to manage change with confidence. Her heartfelt curiosity and fun approach made me feel both grounded and uplifted after each session.

Don’t hesitate — take the leap with Tara and watch your potential soar!

Here’s how it works:

Step 1. Select the best package for you

Once you’ve got an idea for how much support you’re interested in, let’s book a free, 30-minute chemistry session to see if we’re a good fit. If you need help deciding which package is best for you, we’ll figure it out together in the chemistry session.

Step 2. Prepare for a strong start 

If after our chemistry session, we both decide we want to move forward, I’ll send you the agreement. Expect your intake form to land in your inbox shortly after so we can hit the ground running at our very first coaching call.

Step 3. Get to work 

We’ll uncover truths about your values, so you can articulate your purpose and pinpoint goals that feel like a hell YES. You’ll walk away from each call equipped with clear action steps, so you can move with momentum toward your goals — while feeling grounded in confidence to tackle any internal or external obstacles along the way.

You may be wondering…“There are so many coaches out there. Why should I choose Tara?”

While I serve people from all backgrounds, women of color are the center of my universe

As a queer woman of color myself, I understand – on a visceral level – their challenges that a non-minority coach has never experienced. 

My background as a former sex worker means I help my clients turn inward to unearth truths about themselves, courageously speak their desires aloud, and powerfully own what they want. 

Then you get the guidance you need to go after it. 

To be clear, I won’t be the best coach for you if…

  • You just want someone to tell you what to do, without digging deeper to discover new things about yourself 
  • You want a secret formula to success (there isn’t one)
  • You hold values that are anti-LGBTQ+ or you work in the police/weapons/oil/gas industry

But we could make some serious magic together if…

  • You’re DONE with having others set the bar for your success and want to redefine what it means to be successful on your terms 
  • You’re a woman of color craving to be seen in your wholeness
  • You’re open to turning inward and trusting yourself more in your decisions 
  • You’ve admired my transparency, vulnerability, and resonate with what I share on LinkedIn, in my emails, and in my speaking engagements. 

One more thing you need to know about me:

To give my private clients the attention they deserve, I work with a maximum of 15 clients at a time. 

In the words of one of my former clients, “It’s not about doing more; it’s about being more—more authentic, more connected, more ‘hell yes’ to what matters and a giant ‘hell no’ to the rest.”

Sound like we could be a fit?

Tara is a coach that can help guide you on a self-discovery and growth journey in a way that is both subtle and impactful.  I can 100% say that Tara, through her unique and genuine coaching techniques, helped me dig-deep to achieve my goals!
