I am a Professional Behavioral Coach working with adults, young adults and families in and outside of the United States suffering from BFRB’s (Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors). As a hair puller since the age of 15 and now in remission, I know the shame and suffering often attached to this disorder. As I have learned on my journey of trying everything from CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), HRT (Habit Reversal Training) and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy), we can’t change a behavior unless we understand how it addresses our anxiety. Though Trichotillomania and Dermatillomania are complex and carry a genetic component, shifting our awareness and gaining knowledge can shift our behavior. Educating parents and other family members on how to manage their own behavior around their son or daughter’s BFRB is also a key component. This can be even more challenging and frustrating if OCD, ADD or ADHD, Tourette’s, Body Dysmorphia or any other issues are in the mix.

While I know it is very frustrating to find the right help and support, you are well on your way by landing here on my page. I have clients that are pull/pick free. But more importantly the majority of my clients are no longer controlled or defined by their behavior. Shame is no longer in the drivers seat. Remember, BFRB’s are not diseases, they are disorders that still leave us with a lot of questions unanswered, but the good news is research is finally in progress. Regardless of whether we work together, I am fully committed to pointing you in the right direction and making sure you get the help and support you are seeking.

I am a Professional Behavioral Coach for Adults, Young Adults, Teens and their Parents. For a free consultation on how I move my clients out of denial and/or shame, while helping them develop and apply personal strategies, please contact me. I work with clients all over the world via phone, FaceTime or Skype. Contact me here.

10% of my coaching fee goes to supporting The TLC Foundation for BFRBs. Supporting TLC and The BPM Initiative is key to finding the answers we are all waiting for. I invite you to donate too! For more info. see https://www.bfrb.org

Our 13-year-old daughter has been in remission for several months now because of the coaching she received from Chaille. It did not take long for our whole family to trust her ability to make us feel comfortable. We owe Chaille for the happiness that has been restored in our beautiful daughter and our family as a whole.

Elizabeth, Kalamazoo, Michigan

I am the parent of a daughter with Dermatillomania. Before I began corresponding with Chaille, I never had the opportunity to speak with anyone knowledgable on this condition. Like my daughter, I felt alone, helpless, and hopeless. I know longer feel that way. Chaille listens to my worries and frustrations and guides me to better understand how I can help her. It gives me great comfort knowing that my daughter and I have found someone who is honest, knowledgeable, and supportive while working towards managing this condition.

Alexie, Michigan

I have been dealing with Dermatillomania for 12 years. I have been working with Chaille, once a week, since Spring 2016. She helps me find ways to control my urges. Chaille is the first person I have connected with who understands my struggles. I now know I am not the only one who suffers from this, and there is help out there. Having Chaille’s support gives me hope that I can be successful in managing my picking.
