It is these efforts that led me to become a certified personal and executive coach. By combining my experiences with my social work and business skill sets, I found myself in the unique position of connecting with people of all backgrounds, and helping them incorporate structure into their own version of chaos. While I do not incorporate mental health therapy into my coaching, I believe my background makes me more attuned to individual needs and challenges, and allows me to objectively identify the client's true goal.

One goal I've always had in the work I do, is to break negative cycles for those who don't have the ability to do so alone. I believe that in order to break these cycles two things are needed: 1. to shift a person's mentality about their situation, so that they believe they are capable of change, and 2. to provide the resources or tools needed to overcome barriers that arise. Without both pieces, people are then vulnerable to the gravitational pull of these cycles, which lead back to square one. 

In my decade of work within the nonprofit sector, I've worked to break these cycles at micro, mezzo and macro levels. With my masters in Social Work, I focused on mental health therapy for high risk young adults experiencing substance use, homeless, and severe mental illness. While I understood how valuable work at the ground level is for under-served populations, I knew that true change came from a shift in systems. After getting my specialized business masters in Social Entrepreneurship, I moved my focus into coaching others working directly with populations in need, and finally into developing and managing programs to address unmet needs. My work has allowed me to support nonprofit strategic planning, build sustainable structures, and most importantly help those who initially did not have adequate support or direction. I've been fortunate to work and collaborate with various Southern California nonprofit organizations in these endeavors, such as AmeriCorps, Pacific Clinics, Community Partners and CASA of Los Angeles.  

 

THE KHAN EXECUTIVE COACHING METHOD

Through assessments, reflective exercises, and open-ended inquiry, we work with clients to take a deep dive to the root of their core goals. By pushing past the superficial information, clients are able to gain more clarity on what they truly want out of the coaching experience and their ultimate goals.

CHALLENGE

A big part of why clients seek coaching is a difficulty getting started, or a plateau in progress. By challenging these fears and perceived barriers around a goal clients learn to reality test and identify realistic solutions or methods to move past the roadblocks.
