Senah was a 2018 candidate for NC House of Representatives and was fortunate to have been chosen to participate as a featured candidate in an independent film airing in 2019. Although unsuccessful at the polls, Senah outperformed expectations, developed key relationships throughout the State of North Carolina and expanded her reach and mission to empower women and children to create vision and live their best lives.
In the Fall of 2018 Senah travelled to Bamako, Mali on the continent of Africa for a month where she worked with school aged children teaching mindfulness-based stress reduction. Senah was well received and able to incorporate hands on training for school staff and set up a plan to create virtual teacher training for ongoing support. Senah continues this global outreach through Konognaga.org and will partner with the organization on girls empowerment, stress management, mindfulness and so much more!
Senah moved her office from the Union Street location to a permanent home in the historic Locke Mill business tower on the corner of Church Street and Buffalo Avenue. Senah was able to realize her dream of creating a healing space to conduct 1:1 therapy and coaching as well as groups, seminars, workshops and retreats. With the new space Senah has shifted to a preventative mental health model where she will focus on psychoeducational groups, skills coaching, women’s empowerment, children and teen camps and coaching through life transitions. Senah will also offer health coaching for good brain health, improved physical and emotional health.
