WHERE KIDS CAN BE KIDS

Summer Camp Soul, hosted by Ashley in Petaluma, CA

My role is to provide your child with guidance through a customized experience of their own brilliance.

I develop transferable skills in these areas:

How does life coaching work for young people?

Life coaching helps kids to identify with their brilliance and their strengths as a way to overcome challenges. Oftentimes, we pay more attention to developing what we call weaknesses and we neglect the power of developing our strengths. Life coaching helps kids develop their confidence to implement big ideas, personalize and direct their learning experiences, and enjoy themselves and others in the process. It also develops their knowledge of self for appropriate care and helps them to address their emotional pain when it arises. Students unlock their success through a sequence of activities that progress in difficulty to develop the skills of the student. Though Ashley has a framework, all sequences are customized to the student.

Does it work?

Yes! Parents and caregivers begin to notice changes in their children's emotional state and motivation within the first two weeks. Children and youth also notice a change in themselves. But habit formation takes times; and true coaching addresses core self-beliefs. James Clear, author of Atomic Habits says, "On average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact. And how long it takes a new habit to form can vary widely depending on the behavior, the person, and the circumstances."

Deeper than habits, Ashley helps youth interface with their beliefs so that their habits can develop according to their highest and brightest beliefs of themselves. Children (tweens and teens included) with emotional pain can rest assured that Ashley is skilled in creating the conditions for them to address their heartache and develop skills for deeper self-care. She also works with the family.

How do you help kids grow?

My approach helps young people develop 45 subskills that reinforce attentional control and build tolerance for challenging tasks. We build 16 in the first 6 weeks! Using a framework I call the S.H.I.N.E. framework, children and youth develop their can-do mindset for multidimensional success. These include the following:

  • See themselves as valuable beyond social and academic achievement and their painful experiences
  • Deepen emotional agility, self-compassion, self-understanding, and empathy for others while working in teams
  • Strengthen information processing skills for foundational writing and math skills, including pre-algebra
  • Make precise decisions after exploring a variety of possibilities and potential outcomes
  • Enhance verbal and nonverbal communication skills that reduce people pleasing and self-harming behaviors
  • Expand school- and community-based leadership opportunities for post-secondary success.

Imagine the payoff of giving your child the personalized advantage of VIP coaching with Ashley.
