A Certified Clini-Coach® is a person who has a license to practice therapy who goes on to become certified to provide ethical coaching. In other words, a clinically-trained coach.
This means that as a Clini-Coach®, I bring specific expertise that other coaches may not.
I have 15+ years experience as a therapist working with kids, families, parents, and teens. I decided to get my Clini-Coach® Certification so that I can help more families with what I have learned.
As such, I am trained to...
Recognize when a coaching client will gain more through therapy and where to refer
Recognize when a client needs a higher level of service outside of my scope of expertise and where to refer
Provide ethical coaching that avoids doing harm. In other words, not accidentally providing therapy.
This happens all the time! It is amazing what can happen within family dynamics within 6 short weeks. If you have other questions, I am happy to help you meet all your family goals as time allows.
Voxer is a voice messaging app.
Some people really like to talk things out rather than type or text.
Some people prefer email.
Either one works for me!
You can ask questions anytime between sessions, I will respond back during my office hours:
M, W, F between 8:30 and 10:30am
If you sign a release of information, I can work in conjunction with your child's school or therapist.
In fact, the more everyone is on the same page, the better.
These individuals can be invited to one of our live sessions, or I can add more sessions for an additional fee.
Therapists manage mental health diagnosis and coaches do not.
A Clini-Coach® can recognize when a client needs a higher level of care or therapy referral.
Therapists focus a lot on the past and why that dictates our present and future. Coaches work towards a specific goal and how to impact our present and future.
As a family and child therapist, I used to work through family and individual trauma. I would help them see why those experiences motivated thier behaviors, and to how to heal.
As a coach, I help families learn ways to work through typical childhood experiences. All while bonding and raising resilient children.
As a therapist, I worked directly with families and children. As a parenting coach, I only work with the parents so they can use the skills at home.
Holidays come and go. Vacations are important. Work trips can't be rescheduled. Kids get sick. Emergencies happen.
I get it! Flexibility is so important to me.
In fact, lots of families love a few weekly sessions, and then request to space them out every other week. You can finish the program in 6 weeks- or I can push it to a max of 12 weeks if you like.
I do not work directly with your kids- just you! The Parents!
The reason for this is that most kids will not show their behaviors for me- especially not through a screen.
Also- I believe you. I believe that your child is struggling with x,y,z right now- even if I don't see it.
My goal is to get YOU confident with the skills so that you bond more and battle less at home.
I can offer additional sessions after graduation as needed at a returning client discount.
