Trusted support for your special needs family

Coaching your EXCEPTIONAL Family

I was determined as a new mom of a child with special needs, to keep our family life as normal as possible. But the truth is, after a few years into our parenting, I realized I have special needs and my family has special needs–because our son has special needs.

Often times the special needs of our families has the potential to cause overwhelming stress, compensation for special needs or behaviors, limited social outings, and eventual isolation.

As the Mama to three teenage boys, the oldest with Down’s Syndrome, traits of ASD and nutritional needs from Celiac Disease, I know firsthand what it means to live with the joys, questions, waves of depression and courage of a special needs parent.

I know the courage and fear of becoming an advocate for my child, and the challenge and success of building a collaborative spirit among school and community.

Whether as a consultant or coach or combination of both, I will come along side you as a sounding board and family support. I will work with you to empower you as a special needs parent while helping you discover practical tools to bring you and your family toward growth and freedom. You deserve a team member who holds your best interests and the best interests of your child at heart. This is what our coaching relationship will provide you.

About Coaching

How can I benefit from a Personal Life Coach?

Everyone can benefit from coaching at various stages and transitions of their lives. As your coach, I will come beside you, in a warm and confidential environment where it is safe for you to think out loud. Through trusted dialogue, you will discover your own answers and abilities to thrive in your daily life.

You will find freedom to address fears and obstacles, and gain hope and positive perspective.

Regardless of the challenges you face, you can become confident in creating a positive, healthy home environment for yourself and your children.

Together we will:

FOCUS: on your concerns, feelings, issues at hand. We will focus on the whole picture, including the messages holding you back and the Truth which will move you forward.
ACT: we will brainstorm a plan of action that is workable for your life, along with an accountability structure to keep you supported in your plan.
THRIVE: you will move past obstacles and move forward in a new-found freedom. You will discover a personal, professional, or family life that thrives.

My Coaching Values

This is the place where you will find the support, the knowledge, and tools toward creating the peaceful and productive life you desire.

You come first: you deserve a relationship with a coach who has only your best interests at heart.

Christian Life Coaching addresses the whole-person: The spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual areas of your life entwine together to develop the whole-person.

What Coaching Is

* Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps you produce extraordinary results in your life, career, family or organization
* Clients deepen their learning, improve performance, and enhance quality of life
* In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation. The interaction with the coach creates clarity and moves the client into action.
* Coaching focuses on the present and the future of your life.
* A coach is NOT a therapist, a psychologist, a counselor or someone who specializes in mental illness.
* Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice.
* ICF member coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.
