Alopecia Life Coaching with me is a combination of consulting and coaching for families and their teens & children living with alopecia areata.
Whether you feel stuck, are confused by the number of treatments, dietary options, head-coverings or want to create community awareness, coaching is a great way to find specific solutions that make sense for your family and your child.
As a certified coach and someone who has lived with alopecia for over forty years and worked with families for the past 10 years, I understand feeling stuck by limiting beliefs, being held to unrealistic societal standards, and the roller coaster of the unknown.
Some of What Coaching Provides:
When your child is diagnosed with alopecia, it impacts the entire family.
As a parent, when you feel helpless and are looking for solutions, coaching with me is an effective way to find ways to support your child as they look to you for what to do with this new thing called alopecia.
As a mother, alopecia educator & mentor, and someone who has lived through the phases of alopecia from the age of 7 – I totally get it.
Helping families find the right footing by resolving the every day challenges of alopecia (school, sports, activities, strangers, and even family), allows for more self-confidence as you and your child navigate this new world of autoimmune hair loss.

KIDS – Sometimes, children don’t realize they have alopecia, especially if they were diagnosed at a very young age. There’s usually an awareness that happens during school, organized sports, or from an observant friend or rude classmate.
Other times, children are hyper-aware of their hair loss, especially if that loss happens in the middle of a school year. They often want to talk with someone who looks like them.
Coaching works for children of all ages. Sometimes, they want to share their diagnosis with their friends, team or classmates, but just don’t know how to do it. During coaching, kids often express they would prefer to wear a certain head-covering, or talk about the loneliness they are feeling. It’s a safe space to talk with someone who understands what it’s like to live with hair loss.
Sessions with kids are very casual in nature, and 9/10 times they spend a little time introducing me to their favorite pet, which is the perfect ice breaker.
TEENS – The teenage years are undeniably challenging. Being a teen and combining it with an alopecia diagnosis, the need to fit in, and the sensitive nature of who they are becoming adds another element to all of it.
If your teen is feeling stuck, sad, pissed off, or uncertain about what they want to do, coaching with me allows them to discover ways to be and feel more independent and in control of what feels like a very out-of-their control situation.
Over the years, I’ve discovered coaching creates ways to open up conversation and develop more interactive dialogue with parents, siblings, and friends.
