About this pro

Hello! I am Latifah and my business promotes transformation through education, insight, and behavioral change. I have a Master's Degree from Antioch University in Education and Counseling, and a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a minor in Substance Abuse from Nova Southeastern University, with over 40 years of clinical and professional experience. My counseling/coaching approach is tailored to the needs of each individual. I regard the counseling/coaching experience as being uniquely sacred and I place importance on creating a safe environment with key ingredients, such as acceptance, empathy, active listening, curiosity and even humor. I believe in the role that counseling/coaching can play on professional development, emotional health, and I incorporate these principles into my work with clients. 

I enjoy fostering a relationship with individuals that allows for the discovery of something of value within themselves; and the capacity to use the relationship as a receptive container that pours forth compassion and understanding. In return I get the pleasure of observing another individual's growth and development.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

When I was employed as a college professor, I developed an instructional manual for entry level students entering the university. (Strategies for Success) workbook. The development of the project took me a school year to put all of the pieces together and pilot the course. I still use some of those materials in workshops and seminars teaching strategies for success.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I would suggest that any customer looking to hire a provider in my area of work to first explore your individual needs and the type of support that's best, next check out the bios, credentials, training and experience. Then I would recommend having a conversation with the provider to determine if this is a person that you can truly relate to.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

I think that customers should think about their needs, concerns and desires or at least be open to the idea of gaining new information or a different perspective. A customer must see value in seeking support before discussing details with other professionals.
