Issue: "Failure to Launch"

Ken played a critical role in my son's life when he needed it the most. I had been searching for someone to provide some coaching/guidance for him. My son had experienced some major setbacks in his life that led him to feel lost and unmotivated. He also struggled with verbalizing his feelings and speaking up for himself. When Ken first started working with him, I worried that Ken would have a tough time engaging him. But Ken definitely has a way of connecting. It is more than a skill; it is a gift. In a short amount of time, my son opened up to Ken and shared his interests and struggles. With Ken's help, he realized what he wanted to pursue, and Ken was there to support him every step of the way. He helped him with research, writing emails, making phone calls. Ken also helped me understand how I could support him and improve our communication. By the time they stopped working together, my son had a clear path he was on. We were talking more openly and productively. I saw him blossom into the person I knew he was under all the fears and doubts. I can't thank Ken enough for the role he played in his life. I have already recommended him to a couple of friends whose sons are currently working with him. I know it is the best decision I made for my son.

Issue: From Teen "Failure to Launch" to Successful Young Adult in 18 Months

Thank you so very much for all the work you've done with Alec. We came to you in a crisis and you not only saw Alec (and us) through that crisis, you ushered him beyond it. We feel confident in his ability to be the steward of his adult life -- and though I am sure there will be hiccups along the way, my heart feels strongly that he can handle those. I know that Alec is very grateful for you as well. You have been a blessing to him and to our family in the most challenging year we've ever faced.

Issue: From Fighting at Home and Failing at School to Success on all Fronts

I'm excited to share with you that S***** passed the California High School Proficiency Exam and is taking classed at a local community college. And she is thriving! We are seeing sides of her we had only hoped to see, one of which is pride. In addition she is more communicative and engaged with family and is following through with school and life! Never again will I underestimate the power of a fresh start. Thank you so much for being available to her and us when we needed you. You provided valuable insight and support at a very tough time.

Issue: Aspergers

We have a 17 year old son who has Aspergers Syndrome and is in the special needs program...Our son has struggled for years with controlling his emotions, socializing, managing with behaviour at school and other social challenges. Over the years we have sought many different kinds of intervention including working with an anger management therapist, social workers, government run programs, The Geneva Centre and more and did not find that any of those services helped our son. We only started seeing positive results after we were referred to Ken Rabow, a Life Skills coach who specializes in working with teens and young adults on the spectrum.

We have seen incredible improvements in our son’s social skills, behaviour management, academic effort and emotional control since he has been working with Ken. Ken has also helped to educate us in more effective ways to deal with our son when we are in conflict.

We have found many benefits in Ken’s work as a Life Skills coach with our son. As someone who specializes in people on the spectrum, we feel that Ken is the only person who has had success in working with our son in assisting him with the Aspergers challenges that he faces in school, socially and even at home. Our son continues to have some challenges, but the work that Ken continues to do with him is making a huge difference to the quality of his life (and ours!)

We are so thankful that Ken came into our lives when he did. Working with Ken has given us hope and comfort for a successful future for our son.

Issue: Low Self-esteem

Hi Ken, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping my son, T***, on such short notice. He is an incredibly intelligent, perceptive, sensitive and normally loving human being who cares about seniors, animals, children, and would like more friends his age. Could you please call T*** this evening at 7 pm. I think at this time he will have had supper and enough sleep and be amenable to talking to a good-hearted and wise person like yourself. Should I tell him to expect your call? He does not like surprises or being put on the spot.
- Happy Belated Holiday and a BIG Thank You. Z.K.

Issue: Lack of Motivation & Addictions

I’ve been working with Ken twice a week for the past two years. Two years ago I was (what is commonly known as) a ‘slacker’. My schedule consisted mainly of staying at home, smoking and playing video games. I had known Ken through friends and I thought it was time to try something different. I had gone to two different Universities, failed out of both of them, and was convinced that I would never go back. Ken helped me start a routine of daily exercises that I not only enjoyed, but also contributed to my growth as a person. We would also look at what was obstructing my progress with each daily activity, and track the root of the problem. Pretty soon my self-confidence started to come back and we created a plan to get myself back on track. The methods Ken and I used helped tremendously during my re-entry into University, and I feel empowered as to the direction I am leading my life in. My teacher even mentioned to me that he noticed my eagerness in class! Thanks Ken! Thank You To!

Issue: Parent Support for Slacking Client

As a parent of a teenager that you have coached, I can say that it is amazing what you and my teenager have been able to accomplish using your system. The positive changes are dramatic. I know it is a lot of hard work and effort on your part, and even more on the part of my teenager, but when you consider the results, it is well worth it. Thanks and keep up the good work! Thank You To Mentoring Young Adults!

Issue: Parent Support for Non-compliant Teen

Ken, I want to thank you. I was really proud of our daughter. She was very concise in explaining her feelings in the family session with you and there was a sincerity there that I have not really seen in the past. Thanks again. Thank You Ken.

Issue: School Failures

Thanks for the your help, Ken. And thank you for all you have done for our son. He had a great summer and my husband and I are both really pleased with the changes we have seen. We are hopeful that Grade 8 will be a better year. We will keep in touch. Its comforting knowing you are out there as a safe place for our son if he needs a little guidance.

Issue: Anger Management

Ken – thanks for everything, and we’ll stay in touch. (Name withheld) said to me last night on a very emotional drive home that he’d be happy to continue working with you – he definitely respects and enjoys you. Best to you, Ken.

Professional Testimonial

Ken was the keynote speaker at a recent day of professional development at our school. In an hour, his infectious love and enthusiasm for the student and student experience energized our teachers and had them visibly excited about additions to their classroom culture and rituals. Ken has a deep interest in, and understanding of, people – their motivations, their conflicts, and in reaching back to roots of those conflicts to understand them and thereby strengthen. He listens because he cares, and those around him feel heard, empowered, and safe. A fun and highly enriching hour of music, strategy, stories, and learning! Thank You To and Ken!
