Life Coach – Life Skills

Life Skills for Young Adults 18 & Older

As a Life Coach with 15 years of organizational experience, I help nurture and support young adults18 years and older transition and create positive life choices by addressing a variety of challenges that leave them feeling stuck and overwhelm. By working one on one I provide clearly defined steps to follow, allowing them to transition to the next level of function and awareness.

Once a system is in place I provide a weekly one hour session to review what is working and what needs to be broken down further to help maintain ongoing success. By reviewing what you wanted to do and recognizing what you actually did, allows you to move forward with clarity and awareness.

Life Coaching – Life Skills – Including:

  • Transitioning from high school to college
  • Moving out for the first time
  • Working full time
  • Managing medication

  • Learning to advocate for service at school or work

Organizational Skills – Executive Function

  • Time Management – Calendaring
  • Budgeting
  • Prioritizing
  • Goal setting
  • Follow through & Task completion
  • Setting up a functional and purposeful apartment and or dorm room.
  • How to process feelings when overwhelmed – Making informed choices

How to manage daily responsibilities and pressures related to living on your own:

  • Laundry
  • Cleaning
  • Meal Planning
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Cooking
  • Organizing your space to reflect your daily needs – Visual Structure

Creating daily/weekly schedule to follow including: 

  • Doctor appointments
  • Work & Class schedules
  • AA meetings

  • Managing ongoing Life Skills to create a balanced life.

By providing ongoing structure I’m able to offer support and guidance, allowing parents living in or out of state, to provide additional support for their child when needed. Working together with parents, therapist and other significant individuals as a team, offers the young adult a cohesive and healthy way to build life skills at their own pace.
