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

-phone meetings

-ongoing support services between scheduled sessions.

About Coaching

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.
