For The Parents
You did everything right, so why can't your kid launch?
Do you feel like you've done everything to help your adult child launch but nothing's working?
Have you provided your child with all the tools they need to get out there and create a life of their own, but they're still stuck?
You're not alone.
For some kids, the transition into adulthood is easy. For others, this transition creates a tremendous amount of confusion and indecision, which seems to be keeping your child "stuck." It's often hard to identify and address the underlying reasons behind WHY your child is stuck and still at home.
If you've hit your limit and have little patience for your son or daughter any longer or you want to help them but don't know where to begin. I can help you.
As a licensed therapist and coach, I specialize in working with twenty-somethings trying to navigate the years between 20-30. I know your child wants to launch. I know they don't want to live with you forever (despite what it may feel like) and they do want to find a meaningful career and develop a healthy relationship.
There is nothing wrong with your kid and they don't have to accept being "stuck"; they just need some help "adulting" (that's what the kids say).
I recently wrote a book for parents struggling with their child living at home. Check it out:
I can help:
- Identify what's blocking your child from launching
- Learn how to effectively communicate with your child and preserve your relationship
- Determine appropriate limits and boundaries in order to make the current living arrangement easier for both of you
- Create a "home agreement" while your child is going through this transition
- Help your child create a plan of action in order to reach their goals
- Find "peace of mind" and stop placing all the blame on yourself
From my years of experience working with twenty-somethings, I've discovered that being a young person in today's world is nothing like what I experienced 20 years ago. My guess it's very different for you as well.
We need to take into account that social media is inundating twenty-somethings all day, every day. They feel like everyone is doing much better than them. They have so many choices these days that they can't make any decisions. Finally, they're so worried about "picking the wrong path" they don't pick one at all.
While technology has made our world more "global" and exposed us to a world that used to feel "out of reach," it has made twenty-somethings feel like they have failed before they even started.

There are TWO WAYS WE CAN WORK TOGETHER.
The “You Do It” Plan
There's no shame in saying, "I've tried everything I could, but someone else needs to take the reins."
Your child and I will be working together to determine what's stopping them from launching, how to address those blocks, and what plan of action will work best to reach their goals.
Here's what your child (and you) will get:
- Three 45 minute sessions every month (via Skype or phone)
- One 75 minute family session every month (via Skype or phone)
- Weekly Personalized Action Plans
- Individualized exercises and information to keep your kid accountable and moving in the right direction (and ultimately out of your house).
- Personal email support for you and your child
This is the most cost-effective plan. If you paid for these services individually it would cost you almost $1500.
Price for you: $997/month
The “I Can Do It” Plan
You may feel like you have a pretty good handle on how to help your child, you just need a bit of consulting on how to execute your plan of action.
You can purchase one, two or more sessions with me and I'll guide you through the process of helping your child launch right out the door!
Each 50 minute session (via Skype or phone) will give you the tools and confidence you need to help your child launch.
I am sure you have lots of questions, here are the ones that I get asked the most:
How does coaching work?
Coaching is structured differently than therapy. While therapists usually meet with their clients on a weekly or bi-weekly basis in person, coaching can be done either in person, on the phone or via Skype.
I don’t know what I need? How do I know if I need coaching vs. therapy or maybe something else altogether?
Coaching is most appropriate for individuals who want to address current life issues, learn more effective ways of communication, and build upon or improve their health and wellness.
In coaching the client defines the specific goals and formulates an action plan in conjunction with the coach. Coaches do not diagnose mental health disorders nor do they explore past childhood issues that may be creating resistance or problems today.
Therapy is most appropriate for individuals who are struggling with past issues that continue to interfere with their present.
How long will all of this take?
While I do offer a la carte coaching services, I have found that clients who commit to coaching for at least 3 months are most successful. Why 3 months? Research has shown that it takes 66 days for new habits to stick. By committing to working together for at least 3 months you will have the support, guidance and accountability to create lasting change.
I am usually able to assess how long it will take for you to meet your goals either after our initial phone consult or after our first session. I never recommend more coaching than needed.
Still have questions? I’m always here to help.
