Karen provides 1:1 (or 1:2!) parent coaching for parents with children with chronic or short term illness or disability. She is inspired to create strength in a world that seems to have gone off the rails, to be lacking empathy, support, and even basic facts.

Karen can provide support around:

  • Continuing to function.
  • Creating action plans.
  • Explaining illness and disability across developmental levels of understanding.
  • Finding balance.
  • Finding new and critical resources for both you and your child.
  • Holding highly nuanced conversations about sex and sexuality and illness/disability in the family.
  • Managing your own, parental, reactions while centering your child’s reactions.
  • Parenting through the normal, daily grind that doesn’t stop with illness and disability.
  • Supporting your other children without illness or disability.
  • Talking with doctors and other medical professionals more effectively.
  • Talking with schools and creating 504s.
  • Understanding medical terminology.

You can retain Karen for 1, 3, 5, or 10 1-hour blocks as follows:

  • 1, 1-hour sessions: $250
  • 3, 1-hour sessions: $600 total ($200/hr)
  • 5, 1-hour sessions: $875 total ($175/hr)
  • 10, 1-hour sessions: $1500 total ($150/hr)

Sliding scale pricing is occasionally available. Feel free to reach out about this.
