About Sonjachardé, MSW

HELLO, I’M SONJACHARDÉ:

My name is Sonjachardé Mixon and I am the founder of Sôl Wellness Coaching, LLC. I am a life coach who specializes in helping women of color to practice unapologetic and radical self love in order to work through unresolved trauma, mental health challenges, parenting struggles and self-doubt to prioritize their wellness, joy, pleasure and peace. 

 

MY APPROACH:

As a single mother to a special needs child and a woman of color who lives with trauma, depression and anxiety, I am conscious of the responsibilities, stigma and expectations that we (and others) place on ourselves and how they can stifle our growth. During coaching sessions with me, I create an unpretentious environment for you to be the rawest version of you and say exactly what is on your mind. This allows us to build a relationship where you learn to love and embrace your innate complexity, rather  than a perfected version of yourself. As a result, we are able to identify the areas in your life that are hindering you from following through with your intentions and from centering your joy, success and passions, so that I can support and guide you in your journey of self-improvement. Whether you seek accountability, resources, an unbiased opinion or just a safe space, I am here with an open mind and heart to help you blossom into your most beautiful self. Realistic and achievable goal setting is how  we would spend a large part of our time together. My job is not to rush you to accomplish goals quickly, but rather to help you become cognizant of what you are capable of at each phase in your life so that you can live the life you deserve. I believe that no dream is unattainable and our journey can start off at whatever pace you desire. You are always in charge of how and when we get to your final destination.

 

MY CLIENTS:

My clients are often women, people of color, who may or may not be parents (single, partnered/co-parenting or special needs parents) or other persons who feel unheard, have lost their voice and/or need support.

MY BACKGROUND:

I have over ten years experience as a social worker with a Master of Arts in Social Work from Georgia State University and Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Emory University. I have done extensive work in child and family therapy and, in multiple settings, have worked with immigrants and refugees, women of color, persons with housing insecurity, parents, child and adult trauma survivors  with various mental health challenges and physical abilities.

 

MORE ABOUT ME:

I am a social butterfly who finds joy in life’s little and big beauties.  In my free time I enjoy taking baths until my skin is wrinkly, walking around the house with scary face masks, jogging, writing poetry, cooking dishes that remind me of my grandmother, and watching TV shows and movies that make me reminisce about my childhood or that make me laugh until my stomach hurts.
