Kate Libby Coaching is an innovative approach to supporting young adults in their pursuit of independence. We provide individualized support services to young adults in numerous areas including executive functioning, social skills, independent living, employment, and education. We work with clients to define their unique version of success. Then we break down the steps to get there through targeted, timely goals and wrap-around support each step of the way.

 

Our coaches work with a variety of dynamic clients and their families. We specialize in support for young adults with autism or a similar profile. We also recognize that difficulty with “adulting” is not limited to folks with disabilities and provide various levels of support to young adults both with and without clinical diagnoses.

  • Teach and support skill-building to facilitate goal achievement.

  • Communicate with and respond to clients in a timely and professional manner.

  • Maintain weekly notes on client progress.

  • Participate in bi-weekly individual and monthly group supervision meetings.

  • Invest time and effort in strategizing and/or seeking resources outside of client sessions.

  • Track client hours consistently and accurately.

  • Have a firm understanding of autism and 2+ years of experience working with neurodiverse clients.

  • Possess a high level of trans competency and experience supporting transgender and gender-nonconforming people.

  • Experience with Demand Avoidance is a strong plus.

  • Hold a Bachelor’s in a relevant field; a Master’s in a mental health field is a plus.

  • Be a person of high integrity.

  • Be a creative thinker, open to looking outside the box for new ways to support clients.

  • Possess internal motivation and a strong work ethic.

  • Possess excellent communication skills and be able to engage diverse learners.
