A coach sees you as a leader in your life
Atieno has twenty years of training, facilitation, and coaching experience in corporate, clinical, law enforcement, nonprofit, multilateral and government settings with over 1,000 professionals. She has coached executives in law firms, government agencies, public utilities and media companies and led retreats and team coaching for the World Bank, NASA, FEMA, GSA, the SBA, Accenture, Adventist Health, police departments, public service agencies, hospitals, schools and nonprofits. She most recently facilitated Psychodrama groups daily for several years in a treatment program for homeless adults in DC.
Atieno sees you as a leader in creating your life, building on what is already working. She allies with you to break down limits, using the enzymes of powerful questions and full confidence in your strengths, process and emotions and in the good that wants to unfold for you.
Atieno is certified in an extraordinary tradition founded by Jacob Moreno. Moreno was a doctor who did not focus on pathology; he believed in the goodness and expansiveness of the human spirit, the power of stepping into desired roles and ways of being rather than talking about them, and the capacity of each person to tap into possibility and transformative energy. Certification in this methodology (Psychodrama) requires coursework in therapy and 800+ hours of training and supervision.
Atieno later certified in coaching at Coaches Training Institute and obtained the International Coaching Federation (ICF) credential. She also holds a Master of Arts degree in Conflict Transformation from Eastern Mennonite University; and a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Religion from Kenyon College. Atieno is also a Yoga Instructor trained by Don and Amba Stapleton; trained in Appreciative Inquiry with Jane Macgruder Watkins and Mac Odell, and in VOICES 360 with Korn Ferry International. She regularly offers group facilitation and women’s retreats.
Atieno was based in Washington, DC for many years and now lives nearby in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
