Hi, I'm Rebecca Dokhoian
If you had asked me 10 years ago if I saw myself being a coach, I would probably have laughed. Not because it wasn’t something I wanted to do, but because it would have been something I never considered. It turns out, the only person stopping me was myself.
My first clients… Bar flies!
Out of university, I began bartending. I built up a clientele of regulars who didn’t come necessarily for the drinks, but to talk. I was someone who wasn’t otherwise involved in their lives that listened, offered advice, and had their backs. So you could say, bar flies were my first clients! I noticed they started to come in less and less - as they were able to make changes in their lives. And while that wasn’t great for business, it was for them. I didn’t know it at the time, but in a way this was my first on the job experience.
While working in the justice system, my heart would ache but it strengthened my resolve. It solidified my beliefs that there are lots of times when people need help; if they had received it and not been embarrassed to ask for it, perhaps they wouldn’t have had to hit the rock bottom of judicial process.
My compassion and aspiration to help people maximize their potential are my super powers.
I do this work because I desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people I interact with. I want to be there to help people through challenging times and give them the tools they need to learn to help themselves. I have been told I make people feel emotionally supported; not only is that an incredible compliment, but a trait I use in doing this work.
And I feel it is so important to work in a healthy work environment, which is PSA to a T. Working with such a great team means I am always learning and looking forward to doing it.
When I’m not working, I enjoy dancing (quite badly) to “dad rock”, watching true crime documentaries, and hiking. It is a personal goal to one day hike Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park.
