Coaching meets you precisely where you are today. Your child's current educational needs, issues, and concerns are the key focus along with the impact on you and your family. By focusing on the immediate issues, we'll be able to create both short and longer-term action steps to move ahead. From chronic and crisis issues that frame what's happening right now to anticipated needs beyond today, our work together will change the path for your child in school and for you and your family as well.
I will listen, question, and address the current realities first to determine the immediate steps needed to help your child in school. Their ability to succeed during the school day directly impacts your mental wellness and ability to navigate life at home and beyond.
Supporting you is how we begin to change your child's current struggles into measurable and sustained progress. We'll evaluate what's working, what's not, and where changes are needed. Things will begin to improve when we carefully delve into the many details framing life today. Preparing for a better tomorrow starts now.

IEP Meeting Participation
Having an experienced, objective, and collaborative partner with you who knows as much, if not more, about your child than your school district does will change the dynamics and results significantly. And remember...you are an equal participant in terms of making decisions about your child and their educational plan and path.
I will ensure that your voice and concerns are heard and that your expectations for your child to make measurable progress in school are clear. No longer will you face these challenging meetings alone or leave feeling more confused and overwhelmed than when you arrived.
