All coaching is customized to the needs of the client. If one-on-one coaching within the home is desired, I will work with you to set up a convenient time for this. You may also choose to do a combination of in-home and virtual coaching within the monthly schedule. Unfortunately, weekly in-home coaching is only available for Western Fairfax and Eastern Loudoun clients. A combination of in-home and virtual coaching is available for other areas.
Teens 13 and above, as well as adults may prefer virtual coaching using Skype, Facetime, Zoom or some other tool. The coaching session is conducted the same as in-person coaching except that the client and coach meet through a computer interface at a designated time each week. Phone coaching is also available when access to a computer is difficult. Virtual and phone coaching are offered in standard 45-60 minute sessions, as well as 30 min. sessions.
How a parent responds to weak executive functions can greatly influence a child's behavior and self esteem. During parent consultations, we discuss how to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of the child. Building on these strengths, we develop strategies to deal with the weaknesses. From modifying the environment, accomplishing tasks, to providing incentives and teaching self advocacy, parents are given tools to use with their child and plenty of support. Parent consulting is highly recommended for parents with children that have not reached a maturity level that would enable them to be coached.
Due to conflicts of interest, both a child and parent can not be coached. However, a parent can receive consulting services while a child is coached as long as clear confidentiality requirements are set and maintained.
