Optimize Your Life. 

Improve Your Well-Being. 

LifeWorks: Optimize is a six-week group coaching program for high-achieving urban professionals who desire to overcome obstacles that are impacting their personal and professional goals.

I Want In!

You have been grinding trying to build your career and climb the corporate ladder. 

 

You work so hard to provide a dream life for yourself and your family, but now your career demands have eclipsed everything else in your life. 

Your social life has gone by the wayside.

Your family complains that you spend more time on the computer than with them.

And no matter how much money you make, you still never seem to make enough to feel comfortable enough to rest. 

 

I get it! Trust me!

 

I started on the career climb for the same reasons and quickly realized it is NOT for the faint of heart. 

It wasn't until I got completely fed up trying to chase perceived success that I finally made the shift to chase holistic life success.

And many of my coaching and clinical clients have experienced the same thing.

 

You are not alone.

 

It was when I tapped into my own intrinsic value and found support in healing childhood trauma that I began to raise my self-awareness, discover healthier ways to connect with my loved ones, and in turn, reach my professional goals too.

Now I’m empowered to help goal chasers like you achieve the same results.

Life Doesn't Have to Be This Hard

As you and I both know, adulting is hard. That’s without the added pressure of raising a family, growing spiritually, maintaining a social life, and successfully managing work demands.  Most of our lives are so unstable that we can only recognize the forced imbalance when we’re confronted with a challenge or a mirror. Not only that, with the increase of social media and the “metaverse”, it is becoming increasingly more draining to try to keep up. It’s just too hard to maintain a positive sense of self-worth anymore.

Once you find a community amongst people just like you, you begin to realize you are not alone and you are not “crazy”. And with a supportive, clinically trained coach by your side who has helped clients overcome some unthinkable challenges, you will be armed and ready to stand strong, communicate effectively, and live your life full out - no holding back. 

Shame, imposter syndrome, self-doubt - BE GONE. 

We work on all of this and more in our cohort. Empower yourself while empowering others. We all grow together.

About Dr. Erica

Hey there! I'm Dr. Erica — Lead Coach at LifeWorks Training and Consultation. I am super passionate about helping my clients realize their full potential.  I have a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision along with 19 years of experience in clinical settings and private practice. 

My areas of expertise and interest are enhancing self-awareness, reducing imposter phenomenon belief(s), relationship and family coaching, and purpose-driven strategies such as personal and professional development.

My areas of expertise and interest are depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relational concerns, and multicultural concerns.

My goal is to ensure that professionals like you get the support they deserve. Too many AMAZING people are overlooked, undervalued, and feel out of place — even if they’re in relationships with others. This leads to a loss of confidence in your signature sauce, and ultimately, many other issues both physically and mentally.

And it isn’t that you aren’t absolutely fabulous. It’s that you haven’t fully tapped into your own brilliance! And to me, that’s unacceptable. 

I, too, struggled with imposter phenomenon. I was hiding from success, hanging in the background, and unwilling to truly let my light shine as it was intended to. Until one day I was completely fed up with my lackluster career and home life, and a lightbulb went off for me.  

Through my training in humanistic therapies, I was able to realize there were some mental and emotional blocks that I needed to overcome. And I knew I wasn’t the only person who was struggling in this same way because client after client was coming to me with the same issues.  

You are not alone. I am here to support your growth journey. 

Who This Is For
(...and who it is NOT for)

LifeWorks: Optimize is for go-getting professionals who:

  • Are dealing with trauma, relationship issues, or career challenges
  • Feel misunderstood, unheard, or alone at work or at home
  • Are serious about investing time and effort into their personal excellence
  • Seek true community support and respect while offering the same to others

LifeWorks: Optimize is NOT for people who:

  • Are looking for a specific outcome or result without taking personal responsibility
  • Do not like to be challenged or cannot handle positive critique
  • Are not respectful and empathetic to the concerns of others
  • Do not value diversity and acceptance in all of its facets
  • Are not ready to invest time and effort into their personal excellence

Still Got Questions? 

Here’s What Others Have Said…

Natasha

Upon meeting Dr. Erica through Therapy for Black Girls, I immediately felt a safe connection.  She is a great listener and always reminds me of my progress, which I most of the time forget.  No matter the weeks I have had prior to seeing her, as soon as we connect, I automatically begin to smile.  I always feel like I'm reconnecting with a friend.  The comfortability and safety is exactly what I was looking for and what I needed to help me realize a bunch of truths within my past and my present life; in addition to visualizing what I want my future to look like.

 I am so thankful to God for connecting me with Dr. Erica Wade!  My present is so much more manageable and my future no longer seems dark.  Thank you Dr. Erica! 

Dave

I personally loved the 1-on-1 sessions but I also love the group sessions. I wasn't comfortable talking about my personal life or my thoughts in general but Dr. Wade introduced me to the group sessions. These sessions were powerful and always had intriguing topics. Dr. Wade asked me questions that no one has ever asked me. Her style made me feel like someone cared about me and she was genuinely trying to get to know me and understand me.

She has a way of connecting with people and bringing out their greatness. She is filled with knowledge and experience! It's hard not to receive something in normal conversation so I highly recommend her services.

Brooklyn

Dr. Wade knows what she is doing! She is kind and patient and she doesn’t give you answers, we all have them inside of us and she helps you find it!

Dr. Wade came at a time when I was sitting in discomfort and she helped me realize that I was just growing.
