I love my sessions with Jara! I never feel like I’m being judged. Our calls always leave me feeling hopeful and empowered. ~ Anne
Has your teen recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? Fibromyalgia does not have to stand in the way of your teen being her best self and accomplishing everything she wants and more!
As a Juvenile Fibromyalgia Coach, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to help your teen accomplish her or his dreams and be the “best they can be” while living with fibromyalgia. I understand the impact that Juvenile Fibromyalgia has on kids and their families and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to improve how your child feels and to help you and your family members to understand how to support your child so that she may achieve her personal and scholastic goals. Life should not stop with fibromyalgia!
Together we will discover which approaches and treatment options will work best for your teen and your family. We will work to reduce pain and fatigue, while increasing energy and sleep. We will work to create lifestyle adjustments so that your teen can effectively learn how to manage Fibromyalgia into her adult years.
Before working with Jara, I had a lot of overwhelming thoughts. Her help in clarifying what I wanted to focus on and brainstorming action steps was so useful. ~ Melany
Do you find yourself thinking or saying these things?
Are you looking for someone who understands and can help you find effective and affordable treatment options?
My calls with Jara are always amazing. She’s warm, understanding, and asks the right questions to help me think. Jara has helped me find local resources and, more importantly, helped me feel like I have a purpose beyond this illness. I just feel sooo supported and validated. It’s like having my mom’s love and support, while also having someone be the proactive side of me I just can’t be right now. It means so much to know that I have this support nearby who will never judge me and allows me to reach out to her anytime. ~ Moriah
Most coaches and providers don't understand what it's like to live with fibromyalgia every day. I do! Instead of creating lists of restrictions and telling my young clients what they can and can't do, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and pro-active. In fact, one of your child's first assignments from me will probably be to add more joy to their life!
There is no magic bullet for fibromyalgia. No one treatment works for everyone. I will provide help for you and your child to find the treatment options and lifestyle choices that best support her and your family's lifestyle. I will also help your child or teen to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable her to reach current and future health goals.
Today could be the beginning of an incredible, life-altering journey for your family and your child. How exciting is that?! I'd love to stand beside you on your journey.
I felt so great after just one call with Jara. It was amazing to find someone who was proactive for me! When you have fibromyalgia, you try to help yourself so much, but when you're constantly exhausted it is really hard to do the research of finding resources. I feel so lucky to have found Jara and her compassion, care, and understanding. ~ Piper
