Online Coaching with Dr. Jen Blanchette
A 1:1 High Touch Customized Experience
calming the storm of brain injury
You need a clear path...
You deeply want to have meaningful connections and less OVERWHELMING emotions. But it seems like NO ONE gets it. People tell you things like YOU LOOK GREAT when inside you are in such turmoil about how your life has changed after your brain injury.
You are STRUGGLING to do your work or get through the day due to your brain injury symptoms and the difficulty that they cause in EVERYTHING you do.
I’ve seen the courageous struggle of survivors, this journey is difficult and prone to set backs and stuck points. I understand how to coach you through these difficult moments so you can find strength that I know you have.
After our work together my clients tell me they are more CALM, SETTLED, and ACCEPTING of themselves. They understand the importance of breaks, exercise, and caring for their new brain and body.

What is included?
Mindset shifts for brain injury. Often you may feel that your brain is literally againist you and nothing will work! That’s normal. Finding your “why” for recovery and life. Tying your “why” to your deeper purpose and goals for family, life, and career.
You’ve likely been stuck in a stress cycle for quite some time. I help you decode the nervous system and brain injury emotions. Find more balance, centered thinking, and less overwhelm. I’ll introduce breath work and science regarding brain injury.
Mental and total wellness and your brain injury. We’ll discuss common emotions in the brain injury journey and how to manage them. Well identify your needs in your recovery team (medical and beyond).
Integration, meaning, grief and ideas for your journey. We’ll review all of the experiences we discuss and touch on key take aways and how you can become your best self TODAY!
No, it is a coaching program focused on developing emotional and cognitive skills to reduce emotional fatigue and increase coping. In this pilot program, I’m distilling my training, 10 years of therapy, and the time I’ve spent with survivors to provide tangible resources. It is focused on the first steps in calming your brain injury symptoms to better assist with your ability to focus on your life, work, relationships, and passions.

This is a high touch intimate group coaching program for 12 weeks. You get 1:1 access to me Jen, for those 12 weeks via loom videos, priority email support, and resources. You’ll essentially have me on retainer! Send me an unlimited number of questions (5 min limit) and I’ll respond Tues-F within 2 business days. You can submit via audio file or video (yes, I can help with the tech). This will be at an introductory investment of $2500. Payments can be as low as $500 monthly. I offer couples coaching can be found here which will integrate these themes with your partner.
Carving out 2-3 hours a week for our coaching sessions and homework are essential to be successful and really get the most out of our sessions.
I will provide a video recording of our sessions so you can go back over them and get the most out of our work. You will also have the materials FOREVER, so you can refocus on the items we discussed.
Good question. While I want to provide training and awareness about the trauma of your TBI, it’s not trauma therapy. If you need this service I can recommend an EMDR therapist in your area.
I’ve worked with many! My experiences have been varied from severe traumatic brain injury, stroke, aneurysm, toxic mold, concussion, post concussion syndrome, etc. I find that each brain injury and symptoms are unique, so I always ask about your story.
A little about me
a curious therapist....
I am a conscientious, practical, and light-hearted facilitator helping people find relief from the grief and panic of brain injury. With curiosity, I seek to deeply understand your circumstances and provide actionable steps to move forward.
I love finding ways to get UNSTUCK, I think it’s my superpower in this brain injury world! I believe in trying many things as I’ve found each brain injury is uniquely different, just like you. So a cookie cutter approach, will not work. The emotional work is HUGE, I’ve found it goes hand and hand with working on “brain stuff”. Really, I find it all part of the recovery but the emotional component is often neglected.
I believe in you, in this deep work. Continue searching with open hearts, walk in bravery, and never ever give up!
I want to thank you for reading ALL of this! I also want to commend you for the courage that has brought you to this point in your recovery after a brain injury. I have witnessed the deepest pain and hope from this work. Those glimmers of hope come from YOU finding your meaning and purpose, and it’s my job to help you clear the clouds that are dimming your deeper sense of meaning and purpose after this life changing experience. I’ll leave you with the words of one of my favorite authors…
