Is your young-adult struggling or stuck?
Personalized Support for Young Adult Children
of Executives & Senior Leaders
Growing up is fraught with twists and turns for most kids, even for those with an abundance of resources at the ready.
Are you increasingly frustrated with your young adult who seems unable to leave home, finish school, determine a career choice, and be in healthy relationship with others? Does your young adult isolate by spending most of his time in his room? Or is he irascible and scrapes against everyone in the family? Are you concerned that she is self-soothing through unhealthy eating patterns or drugs or alcohol use?
You may find yourself nudging and prodding and offering ("It's for your own good!"), only for your child to reject those efforts, as well as reject you, which leaves you ready to throw up your hands and throw in the towel.
How, you may be asking, can my child be struggling so much when we have provided him with everything he needs, and more?
Your young adult's actions are communicating critically important information about unmet needs.
I supplement your active parenting with weekly HIPAA protected sessions as your young adult learns tools to support discovering who they are meant to be. Differentiating themselves as individuals is a critical job for young adults and it can be especially challenging in families with high achieving parents and siblings.
I provide a caring, trusted, strength-based presence and a "no judgment zone" so that your young person can get to the root of what is keeping them stuck without the fear of emotional abandonment. My young clients say the work we do together gives them strength and hope in their ability to become the person they want to be.
Who am I?
What do I want, separate from what my parents want for me?
What are my values?
How do I find my way, when I have no money of my own?
What if my parents don't like who I turn out to be?
How can I find my own voice and how do I use it courageously and kindly with those I love
My work with your young adult allows you to back into relationship with them as the parent, and that is a critical role that only you can play.
Integrative health coaching provides a safe and HIPAA-protected setting for your child to feel supported as they focus on where they are and where they want to go, without fear of judgement or emotional abandonment. I walk next to my young clients as they work to clear the fog and open their paths.
As a caring and supportive parent, it is natural to worry about your child's future. If you find yourself wondering and worrying about....
Does my child have the ability to finish what they start?
Can my child succeed in being financially self-reliant?
Why can't my child seem to choose a direction?
Why won't my child confide in me?
Why won't my child come home and spend time with me?
What is happening? This isn't what I planned for my child or for myself as a parent...
Coaching Through & Towards
As a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, I use multiple tools and techniques to support young adults as they navigate their way to the person they want to be:
Connection with beliefs and values
Individualized self-care goals
Highly-personalized action steps
I offer targeted, personalized, collaborative support for young adults. In addition, I become part of their team with medical and social support providers.
Each hour-long coaching session is private pay only to ensure complete confidentiality and is warm, collaborative, nonjudgmental and HIPAA-protected. All sessions are virtual and are tailored to your individual needs.
I work with your young adult to:
Identify values, beliefs and vision
Determine areas of misalignment between current relationships, situations or behaviors and core values
Utilize strengths and values to develop a solutions-oriented plan to bridge the gap
Cultivate resilience and self compassion
Hello, I'm Ricka -
I'm a Nationally Board Certified (NBC-HWC) Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coach.
I am passionate about helping young adults manage the complex challenges of growing up, through warm, collaborative support.
Together, we will:
Identify what is working and what isn’t.
Collaborate to identify barriers to growth and healing.
Dig into your feelings of “stuckness” and outline a path forward.
What my clients say about working with me
I worked with Ricka to learn how to decrease stress and take care of myself. I was not taking care of myself and felt stressed out, tired, crabby and unhealthy and that carried over into my family life.
Ricka helped me learn techniques to manage my stress at work to get that good feeling back.
