We are caregivers, and we need support too.

We Believe You Deserve Support

We are the advocates, the caregivers, the ones who make the hard decisions. Yet our needs are often invisible. We bury our worries, we override our fatigue, we ignore the vast overwhelm surrounding us. At night we close our eyes feeling alone in a way few can understand.

The truth is we need support too. We need a mentor who can shed new light on our situation and help us sustain ourselves as givers. We need an experienced expert to help us grow in our own capacity to lead.

I am here to guide you in this journey of serving the ones who depend on you.

You may be a parent raising a gifted or special needs child; a teacher who is dealing with challenging students; a family member who is caring for an aging parent or sibling. You began with such high hopes, and then, gradually, it all started to become too much. You  now see that this role requires a long term commitment and cannot be done without help.

The great news is that you are not alone. I am by your side to assist you in your personal growth. Conflict, fatigue, and worry are no match for the clarity and re-commitment to your purpose that can be achieved through my coaching programs & community workshops.

Laura Preiser, MCSM

My journey began as a younger sibling to my Autistic brother. I was raised in a family  that struggled under the pressure of taking on the life long commitment to care for a child with severe disabilities.

Later, I was drawn to completing degrees in Psychology, Law and Conflict Management to answer my own questions about how to cope. Along the way I became the mother to two beautiful, gifted children, each with special needs.

The stress is real. How do you score on our checklist?
