Coaching and Consulting, LLC
We're not your typical educational consulting practice. As compassionate, engaged clinicians and veteran educators, we pride ourselves on finding creative solutions to support you, your family, and the community. Our approach combines thoughtful review, case management, collaboration, deep connection, and knowledge of effective strategies. We welcome the challenges you bring and we consider each situation through a strengths based, neuroscience informed, and growth mindset lens. Whether you are seeking a new academic environment for your child, need help getting you or your young adult "unstuck," or are seeking innovative professional development - WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Please reach out to us with your questions, worries, and thoughts. We welcome conversations that begin with, "I'm not sure if you can help..." Our guarantee is that we'll take the time to listen AND to hear you.
We connect families, communities, and individuals with mindful solutions through consultation, coaching, and innovative educational experiences.
