Individual counseling and coaching can be very helpful, but there are some issues that a group can address best of all. We now offer support groups in several areas. If you don't find a group you're looking for, contact us and we'll see if we can organize one.
GRIEF / LOSS
What is the matter with me? Why can't I get over this loss? Why do these moments of "shadow grief" keep catching me by surprise? I feel so alone--I wish I could talk to others who are going through the same thing. Our culture's accepted "rituals" for grieving and helping others grieve has been largely lost into history, so many of us do not know what to expect after experiencing a devastating loss. Together, we can navigate the "Valley of the Shadow", share experiences, offer comfort and support, and begin to accept and come to peace with our "new normals". (Individual grief counseling is also available.)
GIFTED / TALENTED THINKERS
Did you know that public school G/T programs are actually classified with Special Ed? It's true, and it's appropriate! G/T students' brains work differently, using different neural pathways and patterns, thinking globally rather than sequentially. Consequently, G/T kids have unique emotional needs (and often social issues) that are not widely understood. Katherine has special education, training, and experience in working with G/T thinkers. If you or your G/T student feel as though "no one understands", let her offer some insights that may make your lives much easier! (Individual coaching is also available.)
Sometimes, it seems that no one understands. (No, "socialization" is not an issue. Yes, I can teach my own children very well without a teaching certificate, thank you.) But how do you manage the unique family stresses and scheduling of homeschooling? How do you ever get it all done? Do you feel like you to maintain the image that you "have it all together"? Katherine homeschooled her three children for nine years, and understands both your passions and your struggles! Together, we can devise practical strategies that will work for your family!
