We help neurodivergent adults leverage their unique strengths to achieve their goals related to independence, relationships, employment, education, and executive functioning to create the lives they seek and achieve their full potential. We also coach parents (coaching-the-coach) to help them understand, connect with, and support their adult children, enabling them to get unstuck and achieve things that were previously unimaginable.
We provide highly individualized one-on-one coaching for autistic and other neurodivergent people. We work collaboratively to identify practical goals related to areas of life in which you are experiencing challenges, such as relationships, finding and maintaining employment, recovering from burnout, money management, executive functioning, college, and independent living. Then we identify your goals for coaching and collaborate to create and execute a plan for achieving those goals by leveraging your strengths and figuring out how to overcome the obstacles in your path.
In parent coaching, we discuss your concerns and prioritize goals based on the importance and urgency of the challenges. In essence, we are "coaching the coach," helping you shift from a parental dynamic to that of a partnership with your adult child. We look for ways to make the biggest impact with the least effort. We combine parent education on autism and executive functioning challenges to facilitate understanding with problem-solving and skill-building. Always, we provide a non-judgmental listening ear for those who need someone to talk to who gets it, who can tell you that you are not alone, and that all your complex feelings are valid.
Parenting for Independence is a step-by-step program for activating your autistic young adult’s motivation, unlocking their potential, and guiding them toward a more meaningful and productive life. Whether you already have a great relationship with your teen or adult child – or they have not come out of their bedroom since the pandemic started – this program is for you. You will go from feeling chronically frustrated, shut out, and disempowered as a parent to having the relationship, confidence, and skills needed to help your autistic young adult gain momentum – even if they struggle with demand avoidance.
