SMALL MOVEMENTS EVERY DAY
Have you had a stroke or traumatic brain injury?
Are you are the caregiver of someone who's life has changed with a brain injury?
This site is for you.
Do any of these statements describe how you feel?
I wish I could walk and get the use of my left arm.
I’m so exhausted. . . . I just don’t have the energy.
Nobody knows anything about aphasia. They only want the treat the physical part.
I understand. I had a brain injury myself that changed my life. I can tell you that you can get better as long as you believe in yourself. And, you don't have to recover on your own.
the mind plays a key role in your recovery -- MENTAL REHEARSAL
Mental rehearsal can help you get better. As you go over a new movement in your mind to create new skill, you tap into neuroplasticity. It works best when you tie it in to rehab and a skill you need to build or regain. Like walking. Or talking.
The Mental Rehearsal I put together is meant to let you see what they are all about.
What Others are Saying
“I had a stroke. No one really knows what it is like unless they have also experienced a brain injury. I had aphasia (a speech disorder) from my stroke, so talking . . . well, I couldn't do much. I was so frustrated because, when the words didn't come out it felt like a little piece of my was dying. Marcia changed that. Because of the guidance she provided, I can speak naturally now. In fact, I speak to audiences all across the U.S.!
Marcia reminded me that it takes more time than expected to recover from a brain injury. I learned to savor the small things as they happened, and rejoice when I made a breakthrough. With Marcia on my side, I was never alone.
I loved the coaching experience with Marcia. The thing that most caught me by surprise is that, regardless of where I was on my journey, Marcia saw the real me.”
