Fresh Outlook Coach, Yvonne Garris BSW

Hello and welcome!

You may be wondering why I coach both people with disabilities and people dealing with grief. While you may not know this, if a person becomes disabled later in life they need to deal with the grief of losing a sense or ability.
Head shot YvonneBefore I get any further let me introduce myself, I’m Yvonne Garris. I lost most of my sight in 2004 and then 2 years later I lost my mother, so I know both disability and grief personally.

You are in the right place if you:

    Feel like you are just wandering with no real direction
    Wonder what you are going to do now?
    Feel like no one really hears you because you are disabled or have been grieving for some time?
    Want to yell “Hey I am still me!”
    Feeling invisible

I have been where you are now I can relate and that is what makes me a good coach and partner in helping you find the direction that is best for you!

I actually turned my feeling of how I felt when I first lost my sight into t-shirts.

    • I lost my sight not my mind. This one has a head with the brain left blank.
    • I lost my sight not my hearing. This one has a cute graphic of a person holding one hand at their ear.
    • No, I have not always been blind, I just got lucky. This one has 4 four leaf clovers. I didn’t know I was invisible, I love how this one turned out with a hat, glasses and a mustache, the lettering even looks a little transparent
    • I can talk for myself, Thank You. This one has a set of lips.
    • I didn’t know I was invisible. I love how this one turned out with a hat, glasses and a mustache. The lettering even looks a little transparent.
