Why Choose Parent Coaching?
A peaceful home is possible.
You don’t have to hope that “someday” things will magically improve on their own or panic that you’ve waited too long. If you’re ready to do the work, you can start heading in a new direction today. Respectful parenting strategies build strong relationships with your kids and help you respond with confidence - even when things are challenging.
Discover the blind spots in your parenting goals.
If you knew how to create change in your family, you would do it! Even if you’ve read tons of parenting books and tried every suggestion, sometimes it takes a personal connection to help you identify your triggers, work through the options, and make your parenting hopes and dreams a reality.
Receive professional support and encouragement from someone who’s been there.
I am a mom to 3 kids, so I know chaos. I also know how it feels to parent through aggression, anxiety, sibling rivalry, and meltdowns. Like you, I love my kids fiercely, but also experience times of frustration, confusion, isolation, and worry. We are all imperfect parents!
I’m also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Since 2004, I’ve helped hundreds of children, teens, and parents around the world manage mental health concerns, improve communication, and find positive, respectful solutions to the ups and downs of living in a family. My background in mental health helps me put your child's behavior in context, identifying "typical" stages of development vs. behavior that may be a sign of a more complex issue.
