I’m repeating myself a thousand times a day. It feels like the kids don’t hear me unless I yell.
I have used timeouts, bribes, and threats to get my children to behave, but it’s not working.
My kids are constantly fighting with each other and arguing with me. It’s a never-ending struggle.
I wish I could just talk through this problem, instead of relying on Google (and Facebook).
Something has to change.
I can’t live like this.
If you can relate to these statements, I’m here to help.
Hi! I’m Nicole Schwarz, I am a Parent Coach. I take a practical, positive approach to parenting – which means no added stress, guilt or pressure. Just straightforward, realistic, and research-based strategies to help you parent through these challenges with confidence!
Parent coaching is completely judgement-free, confidential, and built for your busy schedule. Coaching is done online via Zoom so you don’t have to interrupt your life to participate. (Don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with Zoom, you will only have to click a link I send you via email.)
Parent coaching is designed to help you parent from a new perspective; to find ways to parent calmly, actively connect with your kids, and teach them to make good choices (without using timeouts, threats or bribes).
You are able to get specific advice and strategies to help you in your own personal parenting journey. These are not generic one size fits all suggestions, you are discussing your situation and your child or children. It has been a wonderful support for me.” – Nikki

I am so glad I decided to seek your help! It is so helpful to spend time discussing my daughter’s behavior with someone who is not only a professional but also seems to genuinely care about both my daughter and I. The new ideas/perspective I get from you are things I would never think of myself. I have noticed positive changes in my daughter in only a few weeks!” – Jennifer
Why Choose Parent Coaching?
You are great at helping *me* figure out the best answer. Also, you come across as kind and approachable, and then you can get very serious and knowledgable about your work. This is fantastic because it puts adult and kids and families at ease, and then it’s also awesome because you really know your stuff.” – Natalie
Maybe you’ve tried all of the expert advice and it didn’t work. I’m not here to offer more expert advice because I’m not the expert on your family, you are. I’m here to walk with you through your struggles, point out possible blind spots and outline alternative suggestions. I’m here to offer support and be your sounding board. I’m here to empower you as the parent
Parent coaching isn’t a quick fix, and it requires hard work and honesty. There is no finger-pointing, judgment, or blaming. Take the opportunity parent coaching provides to talk openly about your unique situation. This will allow us to create solutions that will work for you and your kids. Every family is different, parenting is not one-size-fits-all
Receive the benefit of talking to someone who is knowledgeable about positive parenting strategies and experienced in helping families from all walks of life. I am a Licensed Therapist with years of experience helping families. If you’re concerned that your child’s behavior goes beyond acting out, I can also assist you in identifying behavior that may be a sign of a bigger issue.
My best qualification: I’m a mom, too. I understand the struggles, parenting fears, and concerns. I encourage you to be honest about all of these things so I can partner with you to finding a strategy that works for you and your family.
Are you ready to find solutions to your parenting challenges?
When I first reached out to Nicole it was at a time when I thought, “This can’t hurt and I’ll just try a session.” I had no idea how much talking with her would help! She’s like your mom-friend who gets exactly what you’re dealing with, but her advice is MUCH better! There has been a cohesive theme to her suggestions, all of which help me to see the situation from another view point and I am becoming the voice of calm and reason I aspire to as a parent. I have never felt judged. And I’ve often been surprised by the insight she is able project about my family, having only our conversations, occasional emails, and my perspective to go on.” – Eliza
