Pediatric Social-Emotional Coaching
Just as being a parent in today's world is more complicated then ever, so is being a child. Many children I see and work with feel so overwhelmed and stressed out with all of the expectations and demands they face each day. Society, peers, schools, and media all influence your child and may be part of the negative cycle your child feels stuck in. Some children, especially children with disabilities, may have trouble feeling confident in who they are, as well as finding their place. I believe with my whole heart that every child is a miracle, full of amazing strengths, talents and skills that need to be recognized, amplified, and utilized to help that child find their path and authentically appreciate who they are.
Recently, we have seen an increase in children who struggle with self-regulation, emotional control, adequate social skills, and the ability to persevere through a challenge. There are many factors that come into play with these concerns, but whatever the reason, these skills are important to helping children feel happy, develop positive social relationships, and thrive.
Using a myriad of coaching techniques, direct instruction, and skill building methods, I use my pediatric coaching sessions to help children grow and develop skills and compensatory strategies that will enhance their profile and foster more confidence and success across environments. With my strengths-based approach I am not trying to change your child, but
assist her or him in becoming the best version of themselves they can be, and finding a love and appreciation for who they are.
Some of the programs and approaches I may utilize in my pediatric coaching sessions include:
