Work With Me
Blank cloth dolls, some markers, and some medical supplies are a great way to start the conversation with your child.
Child Life Consultation for Parents and Healthcare Providers
Consultations include two 45 minute information and solution-based conversations with those who are caring directly for an infant, child or adolescent who is also a medical patient.

Topics of discussion may include, but are not limited to:
Assessment and Feedback regarding the child's coping and understanding of the illness or condition
Coping Strategy Design for separation from caregivers, medical procedures, surgeries, anticipated loss
Psychological Preparation for medical procedures or major changes

What to Expect
Once we decide to work together and our agreement is in place, you will fill out several questionnaires, including an online attitudinal assessment.
We will use our first session to make meaning of the assessment results and set clear intentions and priorities for the agreed upon coaching series.
You will become aware of how you are "showing up" when it comes to your own vitality, health, healthcare, and other aspects of your life, becoming more aware of the filters with which you view your world color your experience, either as patient or care-partner.
The assessment is not only a perfect stepping-off point, but powerful frame of reference when assessing your growth at the end of our work together. The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) assessment and debrief is also offered as a stand-alone, introductory session.
Sessions are conducted in my virtual office, a secure video conference platform and paid for in advance via Pay Pal, money transfer, or direct deposit. Inquire to explore the option that will serve you best.
As a certified International Coach Federation (ICF) coach, I adhere to their code of ethics and conduct and am committed to exceptional service.
Stand Alone Sessions
90 minute Discovery Session: included in all coaching packages, but also available as a stand-alone session.
Some reasons people use this tool are to assist with decision making, to see their blind spots, to enhance their ability to navigate stressful situations, to improve communication, and see what may beholding them back. It acts a baseline in the coaching journey.
A 74-question online self-perception assessment (takes around 20 minutes)
An 11 page results report
1:1 results debrief and personal development planning session
90 Minute Decision-Making/Strategy Session: a stand-alone session resulting in a personalized action plan and session report. This is useful when you are facing a particular health care event, conversation, or decision and want to be as prepared as possible.

These two sessions can be used in combination.
