Taking Care of the Caregiver.

How do you find your new normal when your whole world seems to have changed?
I’ve been pondering that as I prepare for my part in a special presentation… Taking Care of the Caregiver.

A Workshop for Moms with Children with Special Needs
Awakening Your Power of Intuition

I’m honored to join Carol Weinman, Esq., founder of Autism Advisors & Advocates LLC, for a special workshop for moms with children with special needs. The topic will be navigating the system by tapping into your inner voice, trusting your gut, and becoming your child’s best resource.

Carol not only specializes in the legal essentials of children with special needs, from representing student’s rights to protecting and advocating for them in the courtroom, she’s a mom of a child with autism.

I will be discussing best practices for keeping positive, staying present and finding your power.

My preferred practice when facing challenges comes from my favorite mentor, Dr. Bernie Siegel. When visiting with Bernie last year, he had me join him as he spoke to cancer survivors at the Veteran’s hospital in West New Haven, Ct.Bernie

In my coaching, when speaking with clients facing obstacles, I often think back to that day.
It was there I heard Bernie say, “Ask yourself what am I to learn from this.”

“What am I to learn from this”?
I have found this simple question gets our minds searching for positives, and often, all it takes is a little positive momentum to get us moving in the right direction.

You can’t rush science, but when you can get it on your side, you can move mountains.

For our Positive Energy Project this week, give it a try. For one minute, ask yourself, “what am I to learn from this”, and see what comes up.

And let’s start moving some mountains.


Two workshops for MOMS of children with Special Needs.
