What Our Clients Say

As Coach

I’m expressing my gratitude to you, Nailah, for the compassionate and skillful ways you supported and coached me through my experience. Many sincere thanks, and I hope you are continuing your good work with others.
Harlem Children’s Zone coachee
Meeting Nailah was one of the best experiences I've had so far at CBS. She personally pushed me safely out of my comfort zone and made sure to check in on me later. Nailah should continue to share her experiences and genuine care... with her unique blend of personality, vulnerability, knowledge and care.
