TRAUMA INFORMED CAREER COACHING FOR WOMEN
As Seen In..
Before seeking guidance from Dr. Sophia Carter, I felt overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and burnt out from juggling work and school. From our first meeting, Dr. Carter astutely recognized my struggle and tailored her approach to help me heal. Thanks to her compassionate coaching and strategic insights, not only have I recovered from burnout, but I've also secured a position that perfectly aligns with my values and work-family aspirations. I cannot thank her enough for the transformative impact she's had on my career journey.

Dr. Carter’s coaching program is unlike any other. She helped me unpack some pretty severe trauma (sexual harassment) I experienced at the hands of a former boss. As a result, I was able to recognize my triggers and how my trauma response was interfering with my ability to succeed in my new role. I don’t know where I’d be if had not worked with her. I highly recommend her services to anyone struggling with work trauma.

When I started working with Dr. Carter I was experiencing severe anxiety when interviewing for jobs. It was debilitating and I never moved forward in the interview process. Dr. Carter helped me uncover what exactly it was that I was anxious about and most of it was related to previous traumatic experiences at work. With this insight and her interviewing tools, I was able secure a new role earning more than I ever have before.
M.E. - Healthcare Administration
I experienced SEVERE racism at my first “real” job out of college. I filed a complaint with HR and it backfired. My colleagues turned cold towards me and I was eventually fired. More than 15 years later I was still haunted by that experience and genuinely afraid to rejoin corporate America even though I needed the income. Dr. Carter helped me process my trauma, reframe the way I thought about it, and boosted my self-esteem. I’m no longer afraid to go back to work. I haven’t found my new job yet, but the fact that I now have the courage and self-esteem to interview for jobs speaks volumes about her work.
K.M. - Financial Analyst
Dr. Carter is so empathetic and knowledgeable. I engaged in her services because I thought I was burned out. She helped me understand that I had been in an abusive relationship with a narcissistic boss and this was not burnout. This was trauma and I was having a trauma response. This was such an epiphany for me. She helped me define my values, define my boundaries, and find a new job that aligned with my values and boundaries. I could not be happier. I never knew that I could be happy at work. Thank you, Dr. Carter!
