Achieve Your Goals
Support That Makes a Difference
Money Addiction Group
If you suffer from a Money Addiction and need support. Contact Coach Coco to join the Money Addiction group. It will be held weekly, virtual meetings on zoom.
Kleptomania, Shoplifting, Fraud, Identity theft, Scams, Pick Pocketing, Nonviolent Bank Heist, Wire Fraud.
This will be a private group exclusive to those who seek help to end compulsive behaviors as listed. Confidentiality is mandatory. If you are tired of risking your freedom and destroying your life chasing money that does not belong to you, this is an opportunity to seek support and meet with others who share the same afflictions.
When you lose a relationship, loved one, career, pet or friend it can be utterly traumatizing. Everyone experiences a unique level of grief. Some shut down and go on auto pilot until one day they erupt. Some struggle with fear, guilt, loss,anger and longstanding grief.
I am here to help you overcome, with work and a particular set of coping skills I have developed by dealing with much of the emotional aspects of grief. I have been a caretaker multiple times in my life. I have cared for loved ones inflicted with the AIDS Virus, Alzheimer's disease, Cancer and Covid. In all these instances death was the outcome. Nothing in life prepares you, for the gut wrenching grief, that overcomes you when you lose a person that you love.
Throughout my coaching profession I realized that grief extends to relationships, careers, lifestyle changes etc. I decided that I would help people navigate through the dark times with the intention of seeing brighter days ahead. Like all things in life, it is challenging, because the heart, is the hardest thing to heal. Let me coach you through the process, I truly understand your pain.
How to Survive the Loss of a Loved One -A Caretaker's Journey had me emotional and ready to cry from every heart wrenching chapter. This Author put her heart on the pages of this book. Very transparent writing style. FIVE STARS!
How to Survive Incarceration from A Woman's Perspective
Coach did an amazing job detailing the prison experience thru the eyes of a woman. I felt the fear, remorse and anguish as she recounted her stay in the county jail. The interviews with the ladies in real time was riveting. This book left me shell shocked and determined never to jeopardize my freedom.
No matter the challenge, I am here to coach you and help bring about significant positive change.
My Coaching Story
Experienced. Certified. Supportive.
I’ve been a certified Life Coach since 2013. I have also obtained plenty of certifications along the way. I could list them again but at the end of the day I am more interested in sharing my life experiences. My mother died from the AIDS Virus when she was 36, and I was 16 years old. That devasting turn of events set my life on a negative trajectory. I became a menace, addicted to drugs and alcohol, a victim of domestic violence at that tender age and afflicted by bouts of rage that resulted in incarceration. Oh, and I can't forget I became addicted to money and shoplifting. When I had my precious daughter, I suffered with postpartum depression and suicidal thoughts. Throughout it all I cared for my mother, godmother who had Alzheimer's disease, and my dearest best friend who died from cancer. It seems I experienced grief, anger, toxic behaviors and negative situations my entire existence. I wrote a few books under the pseudonym Mack Mama and began reinventing myself. I became a motivational speaker and mentored at risk youth. I was compelled to help the incarcerated to inspire and share my skills for success. I worked on Rikers Island with clients that were facing long sentences, I worked in halfway houses with people who were on their way home and needed guidance and tools to make the transition from prison to society productively. I coached, counseled and mentored as a coping method. I give and I receive great energy and life skills. I lost 40 pounds after becoming a certified personal trainer and overcame the dire symptoms of covid-19 twice with the use of my holistic supplements. In a nutshell, I am here for a reason. I encourage anyone who needs my expertise and energy to contact me. Let's see if I can help.
Kind wishes, Coach Coco

What Clients Have Said
"I just want to simply say that Coach Coco is a professional, person centered, authentic and a truly gifted practitioner. I have worked with Coach with my own needs of wellness, through guidance around diet, holistic remedies and motivational counseling. Coach really helped me 4 years ago with streamlining my business practices, when I decided to step out and become a fulltime solo therapist. She wholeheartedly helped me make the leap. If you need a cheerleader, someone who will not judge you and will listen and hold space with you seek no further!! She is the best!
I would like to send my deepest appreciation to Coach Coco for all she has done to help me overcome the pain, anger, fear and reality of being a person with a life sentence. I appreciate her for taking out the time to listen to my phone calls and read my letters which were often written in a cryptic manner in my attempt to conceal my suffering.
But she was always capable of reading between the lines and zeroing in on the matter that created a negative mental picture in my mind. She knew how to remind me of the fact that life isn't always where you are geographically; but it's more about where you are psychologically.
She made me concentrate on the things that would matter in the long run by making me eat properly, exercise, hydrate and study materials that will prepare me for society even though it was my belief that I would never see the streets again.
She also made me always play a role in being a benefactor to my environment.
She would tell me that when I was young looking for trouble I always made it my business to find it. So now that I'm a man of faith, hope and integrity it's important that I go looking for others who are in need of those positive characteristics that help them heal and reinvent themselves.
Her assistance has help me look into the mirror and say that I can't blame anyone else for my predicament other than myself and the only way that I can undo this mess is by dismantling all of the negative thoughts that are inside of my head. It took years of being a stubborn rebellious teen to create the mess that I got myself into; and it took years of working on myself to slowly remove all the layers of confusion, doubt, anger and selfishness.
I want the world to know that Coach Coco is a gift to humanity and a woman who does not judge others. I was a brick wall that she penetrated with her honesty and desire to see me believe in myself so that I could lead a fruitful life.
The pandemic wreaked havoc on us all, and when I started with Coach we were dead in the middle of it. I needed a confidant and support. She got me through the long bouts of boredom, depression and fear. The worst part was when I lost both my grandparents from that monster covid. I went thru the wall not being able to visit them in the home and the grief and guilt was so heavy, if not for Coach COCO I don't think I could have made it through. She is more than a Life Coach she is truly a healer!
I met Coach at a gym she was a fitness trainer and we had a free session together, not gonna lie my motivation was meh, but after a few hours with her I turned into superman! Ha ha, She was firm and didn't put up with my whining. I booked a few more sessions with her and discovered that she was also a life coach. Low and behold a year later, I'm forty pounds lighter and mentally I am more focused and peaceful. This lady knows her stuff!
Coach Coco really helped me when I entered into a crossroad in my life. I turned 40, newly single after suffering through a nasty divorce. I was broken, and without her guidance and support I would still be lost, picking up the pieces. We did a series of sessions focused on building my self-esteem and confidence. She even supported my entry into the terrifying world of online dating! Without her I would never have found the courage to put myself out there. I am currently still in sessions, with her by myside I know I can win in this unpredictable life.
Coach Coco is very supportive, real, direct and nurturing. She is truly a life saver! I work with her with short term solution focused problems, and she really helps me to gain focus and make some tough decisions. I am very grateful that she is my coach and I look forward to continued growth. Anyone looking for a straight shooter, no holds bar type of life coach. Look no further!
I have been seeing Coach Coco for several years and she has really saved my marriage, when we first started sessions I was guarded and I opened up effortlessly after she shared her story and offered such sage advice. Soon after I brought in my husband and she helped us learn that we had to regain respect for each other. The way we communicated was so toxic that we were on the verge of a breakup. There was infidelity involved and I was so hurt that i couldn't get pass it and working with Coach fixed my blockage. I finally managed to overcome my fear of him cheating again and my mistrust. He and I do couple sessions and I also do solo ones. Coach Coco is easy to talk to and always ready to guide us to a mutual agreement. We definitely used anger as our language and she showed us how to use love. I recently lost my aunt during covid and has transitioned over to her grief sessions. She is amazing!
Me and my Fiancé were having some communication issues where we had to separate. After a week apart we decided to look into couples therapy. We were referred to Coach Coco by a colleague. Coach Coco who was phenomenally transparent, listened carefully to both of our issues / from our perspective. The way she communicated her advice was truthful and helpful. She did not hold back in a very respectful manner. The exercises / tools she gave us to work on so that we are communicating in a positive effective way seems to be working . It was very refreshing to finally have him understand what I was trying to say all along! Thank you Coach Coco! I wish I could give her 6 stars
Coach Coco has worked wonders for me and my journey to dealing with the grief that comes along with the loss of my mother and becoming more mentally aware and healthy. She's great at what she does.
I need a coach who can help me and lift my spirits up, thank God I found her she is a life save. coach coco change my mindset and my outlook on life. Thank god she is a blessing. She took her time with me gave me life changing feed back
My decision to work with Coach Coco has been life changing. Coach Coco has redefined "Doing The Work" because her sessions are transformative, energetic and often a whole lot of fun. I plan to continue my coaching sessions because having someone I trust to walk with me along this journey really makes a huge difference.
Coach Coco has been such a huge influence in my life ! I absolutely love her energy & her wise words of wisdom . Her easy going & understanding personality made it very easy for me to open up to her & to tell her anything ! Thank you Coach Coco ! I appreciate you so much
Often times we keep things bottled up because we're concerned that others will judge or look down on us. I can honestly say, that's not the case when it comes to Coach Coco. I was relived after confiding in her and receiving the guidance and advice I was desperately in search of. My life was spiraling out of control and I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown before I spoke with her. I was in need of a listening ear, someone who would not only sympathize with me but also help to find a resolution to this problem. Coach Coco asked all the right questions and before providing advice, had me think through things from a different lens. It was truly what I needed.
I highly recommend Coach Coco because she genuinely cares and is compassionate about others. If you're in need of a life coach, look no further... she is the right one for you, I GUARANTEE that!

I am currently having a wonderful connection with Coach Coco. She is a wonderful life coach. She has turned my stressful life situation, dealing with my father's prostate cancer, into a more manageable one.
Coach Coco helps me look at things objectively and from a more positive aspect. She gives me the opportunity to express myself clearly without feeling rushed and she is very understanding. Her thought provoking discussions fills me with hope to get through another day in this very stressful phase of my life.
Coach Coco encourages me to always remain positive, consider all my options, stay strong in mind and body, not to be afraid to ask for help and always remember that I am not in this alone even though it may feel that way sometimes.
Coach Coco has taught me some coping skills to make it through the caregiving process and deal with my anxieties. She has me set and strive for goals, and make the best of this journey because...
We All Have To Go Through Death, We Will All Get Our Turn.
Five Stars and Two Thumbs Up for Coach Coco. May she be a blessing to you as she has been for me
Coach Coco is a full of life, innately compassionate and down to earth communicator. Not only does she listen amazingly well, she also allows you the space to determine your needs and provides very insightful advice to help you come to a lifestyle resolution and not just a quick fix. She is able to see qualities in others that helps them to actualize their best self and works with you to eliminate patterns and cycles that interfere with personal success. As a colleague, she’s the person who encouraged me to also become a Life Coach and to this day that journey together has greatly impacted my own career trajectory.
