The Coaching Program offers caregivers,families, and professionals the opportunity to identify and strengthen specific skills with support. This may include:
– promoting more effective caregiving practices
– improving parenting
-communication skills within the family
-psycho-education around medical diagnoses pertaining to mental illnesses/brain disorders, interpersonal issues, and grief.
It is expected to operate alone as a short term intervention or as an adjunct to collateral or ongoing therapy.
It is a relationship in which the coach mentors and guides, and you, the client, collaborates. Coaching is a partnership between the coach and you.
Support is offered in a variety of ways:
-face-to-face via zoom
-ongoing support services between scheduled sessions.
This table below explains the differences between Therapy and Coaching: we are a Coaching practice.
The coaching program has expanded since the pandemic hit. Families are in proximity for extended periods of time. This seems to create a greater need for managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and psychotic behavior. My aim is to offer communication strategies, safety, education around symptom management, and coaching on self-care. The isolation creates its own issues as internal dialogs receive more airtime than when in social environments. I coach participants on changing the inner dialog, catching themselves and exchanging the language for positive terms. For example, instead of, “I made another mistake! I can’t believe I did that!” I remind, “Another learning opportunity! Refining my skills.” The pandemic has created a zoom protocol that is especially beneficial to families in need. Our coaching service expects between-session contact and encourages connection during times of crisis for guidance and additional support. Our price menu includes options for single sessions and packages of 4 or 6 sessions within a 60-day period.
