:: THE FINE PRINT ::

  • This is about what’s best for you. 

  • I’m not much of a rules person.

  • We’ll consider our schedules upfront so we can figure out our communication timing (I’m in the Pacific time zone).

  • I am available to talk with you via the chat function* on my site anytime (within reasonable boundaries).

  • All of our communication is digital and confidential.

  • No judgement ever.

  • No hard feelings ever. 

  • I am not a doctor (nor do I want to be). My support and advocacy are not a replacement for a prescribing medical doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, or otherwise licensed provider.

DETAILS :: Working together 

  • No monthly commitment required; cancel anytime. And if for any reason you change your mind about working together after a week or two, I’ll be happy to reimburse you.

  • I check in with you via e-mail every day (or your preferred frequency) to see how you’re doing and continue conversations that we have going.

  • Each week I put together a newsletter for you with information relevant to your situation.

DETAILS :: Chat week 

  • We can talk 1:1 about a particular issue related to your bipolar.

  • I am a sounding board, an advocate, and a confidant. 

  • Typically lasts a week or so. 
     

*No phone or in-person contact. Why?

  • Protects both of our personal information and identities.

  • Eliminates some unconscious biases based on voice, background noise, and communication style.

  • Written communication requires an additional level of attention, and gives both of us time and space to thoroughly consider our words.

During a professional stint in Silicon Valley—in both the corporate and private business sectors—she handled internal and external communications, office design and construction, event planning, photography and graphic design, executive assistance, and functioning on very little sleep. Brooke now specializes in "New Human Orientation" from her home in the suburbs. She has a young, loving, growing family of five and is fueled by that love and coffee. In addition to caring for the rest of Team Baron, she enjoys writing, reading, researching miscellaneous topics, and funneling manic energy into creative projects. With so many balls in the air—including bipolar II disorder—balancing her life is like balancing two kangaroos on a see-saw.
