LaVonne Dorsey

Certified Leadership Coach, Consultant and Counselor

Return to all profiles

The first thing you’ll notice about LaVonne is her drive, commitment and unique approach. Her knowledge and experience as a coach and leadership development consultant is uniquely enhanced by the Pragmatic Compassion she brings from her Clinical Psychology practice. This pragmatism comes from many years as a Fortune 500 strategist, consultant and coach/mentor. LaVonne has actively participated in diverse corporate cultures for the past twenty-five plus years while concurrently coaching many individual business owners and entrepreneurs to reach new career/business goals or rebrand themselves to pivot in new directions.

The compassion comes from who she is, how she was raised and from many years as a counselor. Along with her coaching practice, she uses her M.A. in Clinical Psychology to counsel individuals and couples - which utilizes a completely different strategy and skillset from coaching. The combined knowledge of these two distinct disciplines and her varied experience gives her a truly unique coaching perspective and a substantial toolbox.

LaVonne brings 18+ years of academic, corporate and practical life experiences to her clients. She is a member of the International Coaching Federation and serves as an adjunct professor for Masters in Clinical Psychology program at Saybrook University.
