Dr. Leibovich - Mankes
as a Certified Parent Coach & Educator

 I’ve enjoyed working with children and their families as long as I can remember.  

Due to my childhood experiences and devoted parents, I understood early on the value of parental encouragement and the importance of providing a child with a feeling of security and stability.

Children learn by observing what you do and draw conclusions about life based on your own self awareness and attitude.

Research shows that parents who have a solid understanding of their own values, strengths, weaknesses and goals, have more success in instilling their child with a healthy attitude toward life. The more grounded a parent is, the clearer they will be in expressing and communicating the importance of empathy, honesty, self-reliance, self-control, kindness, cooperation, and positive attitude to their children. Parent Coaching gives me, Dr. Carol Leibovich – Mankes, the opportunity to share my own life experiences and expertise to guide and support parents and their children in navigating life despite being faced with adversities such as divorce, developmental and/or learning disability, loss of loved ones thus creating healthy families and productive lives.

Peaceful and supportive parents, bring up happy and resilient kids

as an Occupational Therapist

Being a Pediatric Occupational Therapist further provides me with the professional capacity to help a child develop the skills required to reach their full potential at school and home.

As an Occupational Therapist I am able to strengthen the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, visual motor skills, visual perceptual skills, social skills, organizational skills, self regulation, attention and sensory processing that children need to function and socialize.

Providing children with these tools facilitates their growth, self sufficiency and provides them with the opportunity to reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally.

I am happy to say that for the past 20 years I’ve had the privilege to be part of the evaluation and treatment team of children who struggled with developmental delays, academic concerns, social and emotional difficulties and witnessed them grow into wonderful and self assured kids and adults.

Building Skills and Strategies for Learning and Independence One Child at a Time

as a Certified Life Coach & Grief Counselor

I personally faced some very difficult realities in my life such as loss of a spouse and a my mother simultaneously, immigrating to a new country at a young age, parent’s divorce and infertility just to name a few. As I went through each hardship, I quickly realized that I am not in total control of my past, present and future (that’s G-d’s job) but I am in control of how I face each day. I always had the choice of either surrendering or gathering myself and letting my inner light shine for all to see. I made a conscious decision each time to take my life experiences, and what lessons I learned and start new chapters filled with hope and gratitude. My hope is to use my life experiences and my professional knowledge to guide and empower each one of you (children, teens, adults, older adults) to do the same.  

When life gives you lots of lemons, you must decide to try and
make the best lemonade
