Hello, my name is Julie Gibson-Vasquez. I am a Growth-Mindset Study Skills Tutor and Homeschool Enrichment Class Instructor, a gifted children advocate and mentor, the founder and organizer of Idyllwild Homeschoolers Group, RC Gifted Children Meetups & Parent Support and Homeschooling Support Meetup. I am also a Life, Relationship, Homeschool, Gifted and Proactive Parenting Coach who is passionate about supporting the special social, emotional and educational needs of gifted and or highly sensitive, highly creative and other "unique-needs" children, along with individuals, couples and families looking to gain insight and information, to heal, and move forward toward better relationships and a more fulfilling life. I love helping everyone to gain a positive awareness of their own unique and inherent strengths, gifts and talents, as well as provide them ways to increase ability in areas of struggle, and to gain copying skills to manage heightened sensitivities, difficult emotions and social situations. I am concurrently passionate about supporting parents to identify, better understand and support their children's unique characteristics, emotions and needs.
I am also a parent of a gifted, highly sensitive & highly creative child who experienced severe emotional bullying in the public school system which resulted in an emotional breakdown at the age of 9 (Our Personal Story). Sharing lessons learned and time-tested tools found along this journey of raising my daughter has turned into a passion for me. Gifted and or highly sensitive and highly creative children, and their oftentimes concerned parents, have become very important to me - they hold a special place in my heart and in my life. I have learned so much through raising my awesomely-unique daughter, and have loved having the opportunity to support other children and their parents through our Meetup groups. I am a certified Life Coach, currently in my 3rd year of training for my international certification in Life Coaching. I am very excited to now have the opportunity to share my passion and support even further as a personal Life, Relationship, Homeschool, Family & Proactive Parenting Coach!
