There are too many opportunities to feel misunderstood and like an outsider. We grow up seeing peers please the world with their ability to remember important dates, do what they said they’d do, not interrupt and let others talk.
Being neurodivergent can be lonely.
Thriving Sister Coaching was born of my deep love for my role as a sister. I am good at being a sister – at holding space, encouraging learning, and providing gentle accountability with a hearty dose of laughter.
Elizabeth Brink is a somatic coach for neurodivergent adults. Her approach integrates somatic trauma healing modalities with neurodivergent-affirming life coaching.
Elizabeth became passionate about embodied self-partnership as she noticed her clients shared similar painful patterns of rejection, cruel inner critics, and lifelong anxiety and depression. It became clear that strategies for better life management alone would not lead to lasting transformation and radical self-love.
As a coach, she is mentored by some of the ADHD coaching greats: Nancy Ratey, Linda Roggli, and Denslow Brown.
Before coaching, Elizabeth enjoyed a career in marketing, operations, and employee engagement in several industries, including energy, big tech, and strategy consulting. She lives in Kansas City, Missouri with her spouse and two young kids.
