Coaching Bio:

I help performing artists overcome anxieties and fears, empowering them to express their most joyful and authentic selves both onstage and offstage.

I’m a classical singer who continues to perform professionally, as well as a licensed therapist and a performance anxiety coach. I intimately understand both sides of the performer’s life: the hard work and dedication we must employ in order to succeed, but also the inner struggles we have along the way.

I’ve been on both sides of the issue: I have struggled with my own performance anxiety yet have also had fearless and proud moments where I was able to give my best. I’ve bombed auditions due to nerves, but I’ve also learned opera roles overnight and jumped in for sick colleagues with a day’s notice. I’m still learning about myself and evolving as a performer.

I’ve spent thousands of hours engaged in therapy with clients whose issues range from coping with the stressors of life to severe trauma and mental illness. I connect deeply with people from the heart and support my therapeutic intuition with evidence-based methods and coaching strategies.

I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in vocal performance, as well as a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health. I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) practicing in the state of New Mexico, and I am also currently working towards my BCC (Board Certified Coach) and am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) through Coach Training World. I have an active speaking career, presenting on stage fright and performance anxiety at colleges and institutions all over the country.

Let me guide you in creating a plan to become the performer you’ve always wanted to be.

I want to help you on your path to Courageous Artistry.

Coaching Bio:

Hi! I’m Badr a successful executive seeking to increase the good in the world. There has always been a nagging feeling that there is more. Perhaps you can relate?

Throughout my life people have always came to me with their problems and for advice. Yet, I had trouble finding someone to talk to. I turned to coaching as a means to find myself and set the course I will am taking.

Feeling lost, stuck or unsure is a very upsetting and discouraging feeling. It can start in one aspect of your life and dampen your enjoyment of all aspects of your life. This can become a vicious cycle that leaves you struggling, with no ideas on how to escape. Especially if you travel the path alone.

I have worked as an engineer, teacher, manager and leader and pursuing results and achieving them at any cost has ironically improved my career and had a negative effect on the other aspects of my life. Over the last ten years, I have been on this journey and everyday and every new possibility enriches my life in one or more aspects.

You can move forward and build a life that is authentic and has meaning to you and that gives you joy and fulfillment. It is a journey that you can start and follow to grow and discover your true self.

The first steps on this journey might be unsure and hard and I want to be there for you to take the steps and enjoy your journey of self discovery and fulfilment.

Sick of the daily grind, but don’t know what else to do?

What if you could pinpoint your purpose, take steps toward the livelihood that’s right for you and make the rest of your life the best of your life?

My name is Sara McArdle, and I coach mid-career professional women to find the work that delights and energizes them, and aligns with their sense of purpose.

Dreamy, right? Because if you’re like my clients, you’ve been dissatisfied doing what you’re doing for a living—for years. You’re stressed out, frustrated, uninspired or possibly flat-out unhappy, and it’s having an impact on your well-being. Maybe you’re not getting the respect and appreciation you need. Or, perhaps what you’re doing just “isn’t you.”

Whether you’re clueless about what else to do, you’re scared of losing your cushy pay and benefits or changing your career field is simply too daunting to dive into on your own, I’ve got your back. My programs are designed to help you leave the daily grind behind. We’ll shine a light on which areas of your life are supporting your career change and which ones are holding you back, and we’ll uncover your deepest values and hidden talents. You’ll clarify the work you’re called to do, you’ll have a roadmap and strategies to get from here to there and you’ll begin to take courageous steps toward the livelihood that’s right for you.

Why me? Well, I’ve been down the road of career change, myself. I certainly wasn’t born with a clear “calling.” I picked my field in one, five-minute conversation when I was 17 years old. And while I knew as soon as I started working professionally that something was missing, it took me 20 years to try something different. I wish I’d known how much more quickly and easily I could find fulfillment, with the right help!

I have the credentials, too. I’m a Whole Person Certified Coach through Coach Training World and I’ve been practicing NVC since 2013—a discipline that helps people transform their negative self-talk and take actions that bring increasingly greater satisfaction.

Why wait another minute to connect with your calling and do what makes you come alive? Book a free, 30-minute strategy session today at Let’s go!

Coaching Bio:

Perfectionism has been my greatest teacher, best friend, and worst enemy.

I help my coaching clients move forward by helping them stay in the sweet spot between ambition and self-compassion.

I come to coaching with more than a decade as an international language teacher and administrator and yoga instructor. In these cherished roles, I’ve helped thousands of people achieve their goals through providing a supportive presence and making plans for small consistent changes to produce sustainable, heart-centered, and dare I say: FUN results! 

To help my clients tap into their clarity, I use somatic mindfulness techniques such as placing a hand over your heart and belly, feeling your breath, and listening in to what your gut is saying.

I’ll offer meditation at the beginning of our sessions to drop you into the rich space of your inner wisdom. These are optional, but powerful at bringing a sense of calm to our sessions according to my clients.

I’m a big believer in celebrating all progress, big and small and finding joy in the process. So if you want to: 

*feel better in your skin
*resolve a personal or professional communication conflict
*change careers
*start or finish a creative project
*go back to school
*get more clients
*make more time for the people and pursuits you love

Let’s connect! Send me a message below or go to my website ( ) to book a free 30-minute session. 

A sincere thank you for your interest.
Breathe and believe!

Coaching Bio:

Wouldn’t it be great to work with a coach who understands the cultural nuances related to your background and experience? I am the cheerleader for women of African descent, especially those living in displacement through immigration. I am originally from Senegal and have been living and working in the United States for more than 20 years. I know and understand the challenges of trying to create and sustain a dignified life in a country and culture that is very different from one’s own. I am a tenured professor of African Literature and Cultures, a single mother of three (one of which has a congenital heart disorder), a lover of people, a dancer, and an optimist. I am a community activist and a champion of women’s empowerment and rights. I do not believe in the idea of a super woman, but I know women can be extraordinary if they are in touch with their innate powers and learn to channel them effectively. I will help you get clarity, focus, and learn to listen to your intuition—that inner guidance system we all possess but which is so powerful in women. Work with me and I will be your champion and cheerleader as you bring about and apply your woman powers to every aspect of your life.

My desire to become a coach was born out a strong passion for helping women find solutions to daily challenges. I am the founder of a collective of 3000 women from Senegal living in the United States. Through this group, I have had intimate firsthand outlook to what keeps African women immigrants awake, such as a need to thrive in America while remaining true to African cultural background. I spend hours every week talking to women about relationships, self-esteem, motherhood, career, and more. CTW’s whole person model fits my goal to empower women because it aligns with the intersectional lives of women of African descent. Work with a coach who is invested in bettering the lives of women and gives back to the community. 20% of proceeds go to fund a women’s shelter in Senegal.
