Sanalee Gordon, MSW received her Masters in Social Work at Hunter College and studied at York College, obtaining a Bachelor’s in Social Work in New York City. She has worked mainly with youth and young adults for over 5 years–both in treatment residential settings as well as elementary and junior high school environments. In addition, She has served adults in hospital settings.
In these spaces she has observed the need for both youth and adults to be introspective of
themselves in order to offer meaningful connections both personally and professionally. Serving
in workshops catering to adults who are seeking to attain a better life through dietary and
lifestyle changes has intrigued her to participate in health and wellness programs. Her deepest
passion is to create a space for care and support for youth and young adults as they navigate
their interpersonal challenges.
She likes to focus on relationships, emotional health in areas of (vulnerability, and authenticity) and
conflict resolution. Sanalee believes that the integration of emotional health and health is undervalued and creating space for people to navigate these nuances are essential. She enjoys using a Christian perspective to facilitate holistic healing in the mind and heart of people.
What do you like best about coaching?
Coaching provides the support a person may need as they uncover what may inhibit them from living as the best version of themselves. I enjoy being able to come alongside those individuals and journey with them as they seek to grow and become the whole and healed person that God created them to be.
Why did you choose to do coaching?
I have had to learn and develop tools in my life to maintain my peace and self value, those lay coaches who have walked with me through those journeys were valued and their efforts much appreciated. Hence, it is my deepest desire to continue the work and walk alongside others.
How do you recharge on your day off?
I enjoy spending time with my family, reading the Word of God, and going for walks.
