DETAILS

Our Approach

As an equity advocate, Equity Over Everything  strives to always create a safe environment in which our clients can see themselves more clearly. This allows us to identify gaps between where your organization is and where you want and/or need to be as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This lends itself to us creating SMART goals and action plans that often require a shift in behavior and habits. These goals and plans then become the guiding structure for your accountability and shape our work together.

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
