Paradox services take a relational approach and is grounded in critical race, anti-racism, and critical discourse theories and whiteness studies. Not only do participants learn to talk about it, participants examine how: racism is embedded in everyday discourse; how it is denied, silenced and reproduced at the micro-level; and, serves to maintain social dominance at the macro-level. This approach includes acknowledging and challenging historic and current power differentials, and an examination of internalized dominance and internalized racism.
All services are informed by research and experience. I will be with you during every step of your learning process to help provide the necessary tools, training and support that lead to transformation. Our coaching and training environments will
Be a ‘brave’ space where you can confront your fears and practice talking about race and racism
Be a setting where mistakes are not only ok, but are required for change

Be a holding space where we see conflict as a gift to growth and will use it for progress.
