Ready to DO YOU again — without that guilty, uneasy feeling for wanting some more “me” time?
I offer a customized transformational coaching experience for busy women who feel the pressure of having to do it all themselves, and want change. I’ll teach you the mindset and strategies for finding “me” time while keeping it all in check.
Imagine if you could...
- Consistently find “me” time on your calendar without feeling guilty or like you’re taking time away from your family
- Find the time and space to get clear on your next career move, map out your next big life goal, or plan your upcoming special occasion
- Feel energized enough to prioritize and take action on your dreams before other people’s dreams
- Develop the courage to give yourself permission to try something new, go out with your besties, or just say “no” when you need to
- Feel like you’ve got things under control and a good rhythm—AND sustain those feelings even when a hot mess moment comes about
- Do a better job of getting unstuck when you’re repeating old habits or stuck in negative thinking
- Instinctively step up for yourself when things get tough, overwhelming, or distracting — so you’re never off course for too long
- Command the support you need so you don’t ever have suffer in silence again for trying to get it all done on your own
If you’re ready to do you, reclaim your time, and get the attention you deserve, I’m YOUR coach.
Hi, I’m Shanita! I’m a mom of two, an educator, a community-builder, a healer, an artist, a veteran spouse, a daughter and sister... and between 9pm and 12am I’m also a business woman. Like you, I love serving others, but I also feel that pressure to be a superwoman.
You and I know that this lifestyle isn’t sustainable, right? You’ve had those moments of ugly-crying to yourself, being burnt out from weariness, and feeling upset that people don’t lend a hand or offer compassion even when they see that you’re totally stretched too thin.
When I finally experienced that “I’VE HAD IT. I’M OVER THIS!” moment back in 2015, I turned to a life coach.
I was done complaining and crying — I needed to DO SOMETHING and change my situation once and for all.
I needed to work with someone who welcomed my tired tears, held space for me to sort through all my stuff, and gave me the right balance of tough love and empowerment.
Working with a therapist was great, but I was ready to work with someone who laid out the direction towards my future, a trusty co-pilot.
Transformational coaching blew my mind and changed my life in ways I didn’t think were possible. The courage, focus and power that I felt during one of the most turbulent times in my life (near-homeless, pregnant and unemployed) is a feeling I deeply believe everyone deserves.
Now I’m a transformational coach, and I’m on a mission to support other ambitious and deserving women like you — because I don’t want you to suffer solo like I did.
The greatest gift you can give to the people you love is to become the person you were meant to be.
I am your guide and will walk with you side by side if you’re looking to unearth your visionary voice, ask for help (and get it), need realistic strategies to carve out you-time, and build confidence to kick all your fears to the curb.
If you’re looking for the accountability to design a lifestyle that you absolutely love, then welcome—you are not alone and you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.
After learning how to take care of myself and let go of who/what doesn’t serve me, I developed a process to sustain my courage and momentum, and it has helped other women see results too:
So, I’ve been working with Coach Shanita for the past couple months now. She has been exceptional in her direct attention to my concerns, her unabashed way of telling me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and her fervent encouragement of what is possible. Thanks, Goddess. You da illest!
— Mala Sookdeo
Before connecting with Coach Shanita I was feeling hesitant around the next step in my business. My experience with Shanita allowed me to "see" and "feel" what my next move should be. Before I could even articulate it for myself, Shanita gentle invited me to take bold action to create more visibility for myself and my business. As a result, I took a huge step forward and haven't looked back. I needed that gentle invitation and the accountability. It was a powerful experience and I definitely look forward to working with her again in the future.

Get clear, get powerful — get going.
Reaching your next level and full potential obviously doesn’t happen overnight, but the path to getting there is absolutely clear. Using techniques founded in motivational psychology and holistic healing practices, I’ll guide you through a repeatable process for crushing goals while putting yourself first.
Here’s what’s ahead for you:
Phase 1: Self-Exploration
If I asked you, “what do you need?”, would you find yourself stuck or stumbling on your words? Or maybe you’d be hesitant to ask for what you need? Before we move forward, we’ll work inward. Together we’ll surface and confront those UGH feelings, answer tough questions, and start to call out all of the blanks in your life that need filling. This will help us shape your goal and the steps needed to get you there.
Phase 2: Self-Empowerment
If I asked you, “what’s holding you back?”, would your list include other people, situations, factors, or mental blocks? We’ve all been there, and by the end of this phase of our collaboration you’ll be rid of all the excuses, obstacles, limiting beliefs and thoughts — and you’ll be ready to get after your goals.
Phase 3: Self-Care
When’s the last time you had some “you” time? Maybe you’ve been so crazed that it’s been a while? Or maybe you’ve been dying for that time to yourself — but are too afraid to ask for it? Together we’ll redefine your energy and time management strategy, tactfully put life on notice, and help you create a routine that allows you to get your precious time back to yourself.
Phase 4: Self-Regulation
What happens when you’re faced with an obstacle, like a time crunch, or the temptation to be lazy or give up? How do you put yourself back together when you feel like it’s all falling apart? Together we’ll develop productive triggers, consistent habits, a toolkit for building positive energy, and an emergency exit plan to get you out of a rut and back into your groove.
You’ll get all the perks and privileges of being my client, so you’ll have everything you need along the way:
- Three check-ins a month via phone or video, so that you have the accountability and structure to see results
- Unlimited email support between sessions so that you have answers and aren’t stuck, frustrated, or discouraged as you make progress
- Text support between sessions, M-F 8-5 EST
- Setup of calendar reminders to keep you accountable so that you never have to guess what your next step is
- Customized action plans and trackers, organized in Google Drive so we both have visibility into your progress
- Audio and written session notes so that you don’t have to worry about missing key AHA’s and learnings
If you’re ready to do you, reclaim your time, and get the attention you deserve, I’M YOUR COACH.
You’re ready to do the work. You’re here because you know it’s time to confront those negative naysayers, cry it out, shake it off, and start reclaiming what’s rightfully yours.
I’ll be with you every step of the way, making sure you don’t lose sight of who’s important right now — and that’s you.

What You Really Wanna Know...Here's the FAQ
- I’ve never hired a coach before…
Coaching is still a pretty new concept in our community so that totally makes sense that you’ve never worked with a coach before. There are few people offering this service with the focus and intention that I do. In fact, I never experienced coaching until I enrolled in a coaching certification program!
Once I knew what coaching was, and experienced how transformative it can be first-hand, I knew I was on the right path and doing what I wanted to be doing. What I love is that other services out there like therapy and counseling focus on the past and can keep you stuck in the wrong patterns of thought, while coaching is all about your future. I did therapy for years, and don’t get me wrong it helped me and it served its purpose, but I was looking for results.
I needed someone checking in on me, giving me detailed plans for what to do, making sure I wasn’t stuck in the wrong feelings or thoughts. They pushed me, started that fire in my belly again, and I overcame some pretty crazy challenging times. I want everyone I work with to have the same wonderful experience I had.
- I’m not sure if this will work for my goals…
I get it. Coaching is a new concept and maybe I can answer some more questions for you and better explain how I work with my clients. Or maybe the idea of paying for something you can’t touch or hold in your hand is throwing you off… even though I’m willing to bet you have a Netflix account right? And you don’t get to keep those movies!
This is one of those investments you make in yourself first and foremost with your time and commitment. The dollar value is inconsequential, I mentioned Netflix, but maybe you have a gym membership you’re not using (no judgment!) or subscriptions for things you don’t consume. What you really need to pay with is your time, your hustle, your total commitment and faith in the process.
It works. I have a certification for this type of work, and I could sit here and outline in more detail how we’ll work together, I could show you testimonials and give you referrals, and all of these things will demonstrate that I can do what I do really well and be able to help you. But the real question is... are you in? Are you ready to do this work and follow all the way through?
If so, I'm here for all of it. I'm with you. This will absolutely work for your goals, I created this technique and this process so that you can repeat it over and over not just for this one goal, but for every goal that you'll ever have. I’m not just giving you fish, I’m teaching you how to fish, giving you the fishing rod and a lifetime supply of worms! So the question for right now is... Are you in?
- What if I don’t have enough time to commit to this?
John Assaraf, an international best selling author and behavioral expert says, “When you’re interested, you do what’s convenient; when you’re committed, you do whatever it takes.” I bet that however busy the week gets, you still find a way to catch an episode of your favorite show? Am I right? No judgment, I'm hooked on Game of Thrones too!
But it's literally my job to help you find the time to commit to this. Part of the work that we're going to do together is optimizing your entire workflow and energy flow so that we start to find ways of creating and cementing the time that you need to commit to yourself and to your goals and to your own ambitions.
By working together, I will be able to help you reach levels of personal commitment and growth you’ve never reached before on your own. AND, when the coaching is complete, you’ll be armed with knowing how to do this for yourself.
- Are there any other costs involved in doing this work?
That's a great question. Throughout our engagement I'm going to give you exercises that might require you to go out and meet people and enjoy meals or activities with folks, things that are designed to get you to where you need to be.
You just let me know what's going to be reasonable, but to be honest, the coaching that I got when I was unemployed, pregnant, and close to homeless was priceless.
Having a supportive coach to motivate me to step into new challenges in every major life chapter when I was completely terrified was worth every penny. So to answer your question, yes, self-care requires an investment in yourself, but I can take you through the numbers once I learn more about where you’re feeling stuck, what you need, and how much it’s worth to you to have this all figured out.
- I’m not sure I have enough money to make this kind of investment. Do you offer any payment plans?
Absolutely! What do you have in mind? I’m open to talking about options that make the most sense for getting you to your finish line. My clients typically break their payments out into monthly installments, and what I do is I set up my system to do automatic invoicing each month.
- How do I know if I’m ready for this kind of investment?
The right time is always right now.
There’s never a right time is just an excuse people use to stay stuck, you’ve probably used that excuse a thousand times before you landed on this page, right? And if we do the same things over and over we see the same results.
So…instead of turning right today, let’s turn left and see what happens. Let’s switch up your habits, your thinking, your routine and all those things that are keeping you stuck — and let’s make some real change happen. Based on what I’ve learned about you from this conversation, I think we have the answer right in front of you — you showed up. You’re asking the right questions and gathering all the right info. The fact that we’re here right now means that you have some clarity already about where you want to be and making that transition.
So why wait any longer? I’m here now, and the sooner we begin coaching, the sooner I can help you manifest everything you want, that when you’ll back a year from now and say “OMG I’m soooo glad I started when I did!”
- What if this doesn’t work for me?
I always say, “don't knock it til you try it”, which is why I offer a free consultation call to start. I completely understand that you might feel hesitant because this is brand new and it’s an investment in your future. I had one client tell me deciding on a coach was like putting a down payment on a house and hoping there are no surprises! But trust me, there are no surprises here.
You’ve probably seen in my videos on social media that I like to keep things 100% real. But I totally get where you’re at, I’ve felt that same way, and at the time when I hired a coach, I was unemployed living off of my savings so I felt extra insecure about investing my money. And at the end of the day, it was worth every penny.
I loved it so much I became a coach myself, but if for whatever reason you’re not loving the process, I would never want to stand in your way. Your success is the only thing that matters, even if it’s not with me.
