educational consults

Many of our youngest clients find school quite challenging. Making the right educational choices can make a significant difference both for the success of the student and the harmony of the family. Education Coaching helps parents work together to find the best educational option for their children, reducing stress and maximizing success.

All services are with Karen Gimnig, a seasoned classroom teacher spanning various classroom settings in different states, continents, environments and disciplines. Karen is also in training to become a Certified Imago Professional Facilitator.


First uncover your goals and values for the education of your children. Then connect with your partner as you explore together how those values fit with the school choices you have made and may be making now.

(2 sessions, 1 hour each) $150

School Visit

With permission from the teacher, Karen will go and observe in your child’s school. Then Karen and parents will meet together and discuss what she saw and ideas to help improve your child’s experience at school. We will follow up by meeting with your child’s teacher to make suggestions and work out plans for improvement.

(1 school visit, 2 hours; follow-up session, 1 hour) $300

Home Visit

Most often a home visit is helpful for a family setting up an educational program. It can also be helpful in creating homework routines or supporting learning at home in any way.

(1 hour home visit) $125

School Review

Based on your parameters, Karen will research school options that might work for you and create a report comparing how each would help your family meet your educational goals. Karen will meet with you to discuss the findings.

success stories:

"After experiencing extreme anxiety and debilitating fatigue, I was referred to Dr. Stephanie Rimka for neurofeedback. The atmosphere was kind and supportive. After a couple months, my anxiety and fatigue were improving by leaps and bounds. Still to this day, a year and half later, my work at Brain & Body Solutions has lasted, and I feel better than I have in years."

- E.W., Neuroscientist

I have referred several of my clients to Dr. Rimka for neurofeedback. In conjunction with my therapy, the clients who have completed neurofeedback, have, in my opinion, experienced increased insight and happiness. They have also experienced a decrease in depression, anxiety, dissociation, negative thoughts, and insomnia.

I wish all my clients were willing to incorporate neurofeedback into their treatment.

-Cynthia Cosson, Licensed Professional Counselor, DBT Intensively Trained, Imago Therapist

Like many of her patients, I came to Dr. Stephanie with a complex set of problems—autoimmune disease, insomnia, fatigue, and depression...Dr. Stephanie is knowledgeable in many areas, including women’s health, and her counsel was very beneficial. My health improved, my mental state  improved, and I looked forward to every session.

- Lily, Artist

I  had been diagnosed with complex PTSD. I was unable to focus and felt like my life was over. She was patient, kind, went over and beyond what any other provider ever has. Finally, I have shifted and turned a corner in my life. I believe in myself again and ready to face the world with a much more resilient attitude. Her strong and loving presence is a gift and her commitment to her patients is unwavering. I only wish I had met her when I was much younger but like she says, 'It's never too late to become what you might have been.'

- T.D., Speaker/Performer

We first came to see Dr. Rimka to try neurofeedback for our then 5-year-old son who is on the Autism Spectrum...Dr. Rimka has been an invaluable source of information, inspiration, and healing for us.

- E.S., Supermom

Just wanted to thank you for the work you did with me last time I was home. What a beautiful gift you gave me - you gave me my creativity back! My spirit is definitely lighter and happier to be around!

-Robin, Artist

It is very difficult to put into words exactly how instrumental Dr. Rimka has been in helping my son work through his challenges...Despite being very intelligent, he was so anxious that panic attacks were very common to the point he couldn’t even speak...The gratitude and love that we have for them can never be expressed.  I will be bringing my entire family to Dr. Rimka, and I highly recommend her to my clients, friends, and family.

- Andi, Massage Therapist

Emotionally things feel different since our work together. I feel a certain calmness around decisions, and that's nice! Spiritually I notice my thoughts changing to more positive, inspired ones without even consciously trying. Thank you so much for helping me find myself again.

                                                                                          - Cindy, Retired

I feel great today! In fact, I've never felt better.
I don't know what you did, but you did wonders. Thank you!
