About Free TBI Coach
I'm Dr. V, your Free TBI Coach.
I survived a coup contracoup brain injury while 17-weeks pregnant
during a high speed car crash. At the time, I knew absolutely nothing about head injuries. Little did I know that healthcare systems are fragmented;
Multidisciplinary approaches to treatment is limited;
Practitioners have rudimentary knowledge of brain injury
Brain Injury can become a chronic condition and lead to permanent disability
During this 13 year journey, I met other surviviors who experienced the same challenges. At the top of the list is finding the right care team. Coming in at a near second is how to find providers and resources that understand the long term effects on our personal lives as brain injury survivors.
From an outpatient therapy perspective, finding the right care team takes a lot of trial and error.
This is woeful story of how my journey began, but this is not how it ends.

In terms of acute care following a brain injury, our community has us pretty much covered with a multitude of services and resources on a national, state, and local level. But, when it comes to the long-term health implications of surviving a brain injury and adjusting to life post brain injury, there still remains work to be done. You may have already figured this out, that's where I come in. I'm here to help you figure out what you may be missing due to common gaps survivors encounter. Also, connect you with other survivors, resources and activities in support of getting to know yourself better as a survivor and become comfortable exploring the new you post brain injury
The question is whether our medical community, social networks, family, and friends are up to the challenge when it comes to understanding the complexity survivors have adjusting to life following a mild brain injury.
