Twenty years. That’s two, zero. The number of years that Dr. Weatherspoon has been advising, counseling, mentoring and coaching adults through their higher education, personal and career development experiences. As a Certified Professional Coach and a Certified Career & Job Transition Coach, Cherita helps people to clarify, declare, and plan their goals, and provides the support and accountability they need for their personal, career and business success.
Cherita is called to engage others in igniting their passions and pursuing their purposes, elevating their mindsets and perceptions of self, and ultimately empowering them to live a life that reflects their unique power. Thus, Powerhouse Coaching.
Cherita’s coaching is transformational. It is not simply about what you want to accomplish. It is about who you want to become. Cherita gets to the heart of the matter – challenging your belief systems, helping you to identify and face your challenges head on, and clarifying your vision of self. She then helps you to identify and navigate the pathways appropriate for you to move forward into your new powerful life. It may result in your seeking new job opportunities or a change in career; perhaps you’ll step into entrepreneurship or start a hobby; maybe you’ll begin volunteering or even start a ministry or non-profit organization. Whatever your path may be, Cherita will help you to live a life that aligns with your heart’s desire, your God-given talents, your passions, and your purpose. She will help you transform into the powerhouse that you are.
