We aspire to a future in which all people feel welcomed and nourished, much like sharing a meal at a table or cooking together in a kitchen. We recognize that inclusivity and support are the ingredients that bring people together and foster long-term relationships. These values, combined with our expertise in law, mindfulness coaching, and public policy, culminate to form Thought Kitchen and the services we provide.
Our diversified offerings - Public Policy Consulting, Supplier Diversity Consulting, and Mindful Life & Work Coaching - work in tandem to create a holistically well society where everyone feels respected and supported.
Mindful Life & Work
We all Work
The definition of work is as diverse as each of us, and we all “work” in some way. Regardless of how our definitions align, demands get in the way, and we forget to make space and authentically connect with ourselves and with others. Mindful Life and Work practices and coaching help you reconnect, find balance, and move into a fruitful future in all aspects of your personal and professional life.
Restore your sense of self-worth and fulfillment. Examine our mindfulness offerings, which include courses, coaching, sensory services, gentle movement, and guided meditation programs. Our knowledgeable mentors will assist you on your journey to inner groundedness and deeper connections.
Strive for Integration
Integrate your personal and professional life to improve your overall well-being. Learn to manage your time and stress, prioritize self-care, and discover joy in every aspect of your life. Flow through life and work with grace and mindfulness.
For One or Many
Our services are as diverse as the people and circumstances we work with. We offer support to individuals, as well as groups in a multitude of settings that range from 1:1 to corporate workshops. Check out our menu of services below.

By learning about your vision and goals, we become your loyal partners who look out for your best interests and lead you to success. Together, we can come up with action items that put the power of impact in your hands.
Our goal is to push forward ideas that will make the future better for everyone. We deeply care about social justice, sustainability, and good government for everyone.
