All too often parents of children with special needs are exhausted, frustrated and overwhelmed because they lack the support and guidance they need.

You want to know you are doing all the right things to help your child grow up and live a happy, independent life, but struggle to know how to meet your child’s needs and how to balance your time.

You feel isolated, alone, and judged by others.

While many therapists follow a deficit-based therapy model, focusing only on the child and their lack of skills, at Special Advantage, our services are different.  We choose a more positive, proactive, family-focused and strength-based approach and also recognize parents as experts on their child.

This inclusive, partnership approach increases parental confidence and joy, while decreasing stress, overwhelm, guilt, and fear.  And you and your child improve!

Special needs have been a feature of Denise’s entire professional and personal life.

This unique experience – coupled with her role as a public speaker and professional trainer in the field – has led her to grow a community and tribe of Special Needs Parents and Professionals who are proactive, empowered, and hopeful about the future.

Through Parent Coaching, Denise helps empower parents to become their highest, best self so they can be, do and have all they envision in life for themselves and their loved ones.  She believes, “Everyone has the power to change their own lives.  I believe we are more powerful than we think and once my clients realize this, and are truly ready for a change, they become unstoppable!  And so do their Little Super Heroes!”

When a client and coach are 100% committed, amazing transformation can occur.  Our clients experience the transformation they seek when they match our commitment level for themselves.  We give 100% and expect our clients to do the same (don’t worry, it’s easy, not as time consuming as you might think, and FUN!).  We believe anyone can change when they are ready to do so.  You can have excuses or you can have results… what do you want?

Coaching isn’t just teaching you or your child skills and practical strategies; it’s shifting your mindset – how you feel about what you’re doing or not doing – that’s what really matters!

Success = Mindset (80%) + Understanding + Strategy/Skills (20%)
