Coaching

If you’re looking for services on behalf of an organization, please visit Let’s Work Together and Workshops and Presentations. Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional or a therapist – just someone well versed in these topics who loves helping others.

I’m excited to now offer personal coaching!

We will stay in contact in whichever ways work best for you – social media, text, call, Skype, etc. The first session is always free. It’s a great way for us to get to know each other, talk over the programs, and more.

Fees for these programs range from $60 to $100 per session, depending on length and need. That said, I am happy to work on a sliding scale to accommodate your budget and needs. Please contact me for more information.

There will be homework with each program! This may include watching media, field trips, reading, and more.

Disability Coaching

It can be difficult to accept and handle our lives with chronic illness or disability. Many coaching programs out there start with the idea that we must always be positive and happy in spite of life’s challenges. I believe that we must allow ourselves to feel our negative feelings in order to process them. In the 20+ years that I’ve been sick, I’ve learned the hard way holding these things in can negatively affect our lives, our bodies, and our minds.

My disability coaching program will touch upon learning what works for you. We will go through some tried-and-true methods such as meditation but also experiment with new ideas based on what you respond to. This program will be heavy on self-love and self-care.

Text included with this program:  Self-Love 101: Are you ready to love yourself?

Relationship Coaching

Being in a relationship is hard. It’s even harder when illness or disability show up as a third wheel. It can make us feel as though we’re in a polyamorous relationship we didn’t agree to. Furthermore, navigating the balancing act of lover, best friend, and caregiver/caregivee isn’t easy.

My relationship coaching program will help focus on communication, understanding, and creating a solid foundation. While it sounds like this may only be good for new partners, it’s something that I continuously work on with my partner of over a decade. This works best with all partners involved but can still be helpful with one person.

Sex and Intimacy Coaching

Living with illness and disability isn’t easy in an abled world. Having a sex life is even harder.

Whether you’re struggling with sex and intimacy alone or with partners, this program can help you explore sex and sexuality more in-depth in a safe yet bold space. We’ll discuss accessibility needs, lubricants, sex toys and tools, communication, and more.
