Sandra E. Clifton, M.Ed.


Board Certified Educational Therapist in Private Practice

for Sensitive, Gifted & Twice-Exceptional Kids

Second Grade ~ College

Sandra Clifton taught high school English, speech, and drama in public schools for ten years before moving to New York City to join an amazing team of teachers at Prep for Prep, a non-profit organization that prepares talented minority scholars for placement in independent schools. Continuing her path as an upper school educator in NYC, Sandra taught at the Professional Children’s School, Poly Prep Country Day Upper School, and Packer Collegiate Institute while earning credentials to become an accredited professional life coach. Ms. Clifton was then hired at the Center for Emotional Intelligence at Yale University, where she served as a Program Coach and Master Trainer on the RULER Team, helping schools integrate a curriculum of evidence-based skills in Social & Emotional Learning. Then in 2006, Sandra opened the Clifton Corner: A Private Practice in Brooklyn, where she worked with families for over ten years.

Sandra has now returned to her childhood roots in Chapel Hill to continue the mission to provide educational therapy for Highly Sensitive Kids and Twice-Exceptional Teens. Her private practice is a safe space of learning to support overwhelmed students who struggle with issues of perfection, motivation, organization, learning differences, executive functioning, academic anxiety and self-esteem. Through the tools of mindfulness, creativity, leadership and positive psychology, Sandra promotes self-discovery and personal accountability to help young people transform their identity to reach new goals of intellectual and personal growth, from middle school through college. Sandra also has a special affinity with both athletes and artists/musicians who shine with strengths outside of school—but may encounter challenges with time management, confidence, and/or academic insecurities in the classroom. She knows that young people are incredibly capable of succeeding both on and off the court, and loves helping to create the right tools to support all of her students.

As a Professional Member of the Independent Education Consultants Association (IECA), the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and the Association of Educational Therapists (AET), Sandra guides parents through curriculum decisions and school transitions to create more joy in the journey of learning, and serves as an independent consultant at schools and organizations to help promote a positive learning environment through seminars and professional workshops. Sandra has been featured as an expert speaker and panelist by The Child Mind Institute, Park Slope Parents, Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, Packer Collegiate Institute, Fordham University, WPIX, and CBS. She currently broadcasts daily thoughts about education called “Spotlight on Learning” at WCHL.

TeamEssenz Coaching & Consulting LLC Work 1221 Bowers St., Box 2072 Birmingham MI 48012 Phone: (248) 225-9032 Website:

As a cross-cultural business coach and team-builder, Susanne works with clients to deal with unique cross-cultural challenges and with multi-cultural teams to find their common language. Susanne helps challenge global communication when challenged by it, think beyond borders, find similarities in the differences and simplify complexity.

Susanne herself was immersed in cultural diversity from early on: she grew up as a German child in Taiwan, going to an American school, speaking English, Chinese, German and later Spanish on a daily basis. Susanne earned her degree in Business Administration in Germany and worked in sales and marketing within corporate Germany for 15 years before moving to Michigan in 2010 where she completed her professional coach training.

Susanne founded TeamEssenz Coaching & Consulting LLC in 2012.
Susanne strongly believes in the value of the differences and the strength of diversity. The blends of different cultures and personalities make each person a unique individual. Susanne encourages her clients to feel the difference and turn them into an asset.

Throughout her career, Susanne has worked within cross-cultural teams and individuals all over the globe and has mastered many of her own transitions. She has a deep understanding of how the move to a new county is exciting for expatriates -or expats- and how these transitions can also pose challenges. Expats can attempt to fit in, but what does “fitting in” really mean and does one really have to?

With much energy, enthusiasm and “German drive” she enjoy challenging these questions with anyone who crosses cultures, enjoys change, loves diversity and dares to be different…

My clients achieve integrated sustainable change by incorporating new language, perspectives and action into their professional and personal life. I bring into my coaching a variety of resources:

My interest in coaching developed organically from counseling employees, direct reports, peers in management and company executives. I bring 20 years of experience as a Human Resource Manager and Professional for companies such as GTE Corporation, Budget Rent-a-Car, Masco Tech-Braun and Compuware Corporation.

I lead engaging small group coaching workshops and provide motivational speeches. I am a trained Labyrinth Facilitator for individual and group self-reflection, ritual and ceremonial walks.

Matt is “Coach Kilroy”, a certified wellness coach. As a Wellness Coach Matt assist others in achieving a higher level of life balance and fulfillment. His business is called Total Wellness Solutions, LLC. Matt’s coaching specialties are helping divorce dad’s strengthen their relationships with their children; assisting college students discover a career path that will give them high energy and fulfillment through out their life; and helping mixed families find peace again.

Matt has been a health care practitioner for over 35 years and wears many hats. He is a licensed Respiratory Therapist currently working in the area of Medical Case Management. He worked at Spectrum Health Butterworth Campus for 24 years in several capacities, as staff Respiratory Therapist, Educator, CPR Instructor, Group Facilitator and Supervisor. In February 2003, he changed jobs and is currently working for a health management organization based out of Grand Rapids Michigan as a Respiratory Therapist Case Manager.

Fifteen years ago, Matt began his own unique style of low impact aerobic kick boxing and developed a women’s self-defense called “Physical Abuse Avoidance Tactics”. Matt is also a long time musical entertainer of 31 years. He was in a Traditional Celtic Band called the Kwils which disbanded after a twenty year musical journey. The Kwils produced two CD’s during their time together; their first CD in March of 1997 and second CD in November of 2000. Matt now enjoys performing as a solo musician under the name of “Celtic Kilroy”, most recently creating a new style of entertainment called; “Pub Cabaret”. He also performs as human statue that comes to life playing several tradition Irish instruments and singing. Matt was a member of a national speaker’s club called Toastmasters International for over ten years. He is the recipient of one of their highest level of achievements, the Toastmasters Gold public speaker award. He provides presentation and seminars for organizations that wish to improve upon their team moral, spirit and effectiveness.

He has been teaching martial arts to adults and children for over twenty eight years. Matt trained and taught for the American Tae Kwon-Do Academy for 15 of those years, a school based out of Bay City Michigan. In January 2006, Matt opened his own martial arts school in Belmont Michigan. His new school is located at the Wolverine World Wide Family YMCA of which he functions as the master instructor and martial arts program coordinator.

Matt loves to run, roller blade, kayak, swim, ride his bike and cross country ski. He enters and completes local road races and triathlon annually. Matt is nearing his 15 gallon mark for giving blood through the American Red Cross Blood program and encourages all who are able to also give this great gift of life.

In summary, Matt is still a 60 years “young” lad at heart while maintaining the wisdom of an adult. He describes himself as a “human sponge” that absorbs all the possibilities and joys that life has to offer in order to later share them with whoever may cross his path. Matt believes we were all placed on this earth to accept, help and serve each other by way of our God given talents, and sharing his medical, musical and coaching talents, among others, are just a few of many ways he passionately follows this belief.

In life and business it is my reward when I can make a real contribution to the relationships I have worked hard to develop. I partner with established or new Line Leaders who want to be better leaders or achieve greater success with challenging situations with the performance and productivity within their teams.  I also work with senior professionals who want to achieve greater business results.

In partnering with me I hold my clients “capable” and work with them to craft the results they are looking for.  We carefully plan what this road map will look like.

My Coaching style is not directive, I prefer to be a “thought partner” and find solutions by exploring with curiosity and questions that allow my clients to seek more awareness and understanding of what is getting in their way.  My authenticity is evident in the process and this allows me to work well in feedback rich relationships where communication flows honestly in both directions.

Clients come to me looking to get unstuck and move forward towards whatever goals are most important to them.

I also offer training on various spiritual self-empowerment concepts such as the Law of Attraction and intuitive guidance and can bring that into coaching sessions if requested.

Although I’ve worked with executive and sales teams at very large companies, my passion and greatest effectiveness has always been in the small business sector.

When I work with owners, entrepreneurs or sales teams, some sort of magic is invoked and they seem to create clarity, confidence and direction rather quickly.

Even though I can’t guarantee it, my goal is for you to receive at least 10x ROI on your coaching investment.  I want you to win and win big!

I’ve owned several businesses since 1990 so am familiar with the challenges that can arise in that environment.

What you can expect from me:
– Provide you a safe, supportive and confidential environment in which we can explore the issues that are most important to you.
– Brainstorm with you to develop your vision and action steps.
– Challenge your self-limiting beliefs and assist you in releasing them.
– Help you to develop systems of accountability so you can stay on track.
– Cheer you on from the sidelines and celebrate your wins with you.

Benefits that previous clients have reported from having worked with me:
– Improved clarity and confidence in decision-making
– Improved relationships, both business and personal
– Annual company sales increase of 7 figures
– Attracted more “perfect” clients to business
– Tools and processes to stay focused, empowered and confident
– Improved time management leading to better energy and efficiency
– Improved attitude with coworkers and in job functions

I am credentialed as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation and have also trained in Mediation and Advanced Dispute Resolution.
