Sometimes you may be having a dispute with a family member who doesn’t want to go to mediation. Perhaps your family member won’t even sit down and talk with you. You may be distressed over trying to figure out what to do. I can help you with this. A package of coaching sessions can get you through any kind of transition about your aging parent, your sibling conflict or your need to work with a professional outside your family.
We offer coaching packages tailored to your specific need. Contact me to discuss your options and pricing.
Difficult aging parents, siblings, doctors, or other family members can drive you nuts! It is very hard to be objective. It can also be very hard to know what to say to them. Sometimes you may be taken advantage of by your own family and then you feel trapped. If you want to learn how to politely but firmly assert yourself, I can help you. If you are in a tough situation with aging parents and don’t know where to begin to get out of it, I can help you. Advice from an expert outsider can do wonders for restoring your peace of mind. It can turn your confusion into confidence. I’ll help you get through it. Two sessions or more can be invaluable to you in getting answers you need.
I have written countless letters for family members covering a variety of things they had trouble doing. It’s like having your own private ghost writer for exactly what needs to be said. Typically, a letter starts with a conversation with you to determine the extent of the problem and then I do the drafting of the words. I send them to you for your further editing and then sending to the recipient. The communication comes from you to your family member or other problem person. I do not represent you as a lawyer. Here are some of the subjects I’ve helped clients put into words in writing:
Helping an elder with a “Dear John” letter to an unwanted romantic interest who became a pest
Setting limits on what an aging parent demanded that the daughter do, being at the parent’s beck and call
Setting criticizing siblings straight and not allowing them in the house of the writer/caregiver if they wanted to come and be critical
Asking a doctor to document in writing that a parent was no longer competent to handle the checkbook or finances
Asking siblings to help with an aging parent’s care and laying out exactly what they needed to do
Putting a stop to an abusive parent’s demands by refusing in writing to comply
Making a relative aware that the family is watching every move and that he was suspected by them financial abuse of an elder
Being good with written communication is like an art form. I offer this unique service in packages of two hours or more. Contact me for pricing. Getting your thoughts out and in written (letter or email) form can feel like a huge relief. You don’t need to struggle. I’ll do it for you, efficiently and clearly, in words you feel comfortable using.
