Change is difficult and coming to terms with hearing loss can be challenging. I know because of my own experience dealing with it. Let me provide you with one-on-one coaching to help you through your journey.

Specific topics include but are not limited to:

  • Examining your feelings about hearing loss including the stigma associated with it

  • Examining how your friends and family deal and feel about your hearing loss

  • Dealing with challenging work situations

  • Dealing with difficult hearing situations like parties or restaurants

  • Dealing with dating and other social situations

  • Exploring assistive listening devices

  • Advocating for yourself and advocating in public venues using the American With Disabilities Act (ADA)

  • How Auditory Rehabilitation with a Speech Pathologist can benefit you

Most important: I want you to feel good about yourself as a person with hearing loss and live your best life.

Through a journey of self-discovery, and time I realized there's so much more to hearing loss than just having trouble hearing ......


It can be be exhausting, upsetting, and discrediting. It can affect everyone and everything in your life. You can decide to bluff through it, deny it, withdraw socially, or wish you were someone else.


ALTERNATELY, you can accept it, improve it, and live life to its fullest. This has become my continued journey of self-discovery.


At Gallaudet University's two-year Peer Mentoring program for hearing loss this was not only re-affirmed but also how to help people with hearing loss feel empowered, understood, and more specifically, how to deal with everyday situations that life presents us with.


Today I look forward to sharing these tools with you.
