You may feel as though your kids don't listen to you. Perhaps you get caught in power struggles and end up yelling and threatening more than you would like.

Successfully navigate your parenting struggles with support and guidance from me. Integrate positive, realistic approaches in your everyday moments. Gain renewed energy, enthusiasm, and confidence for parenting.
Parent coaching is a partnership between coach and parent where family ideals and priorities are identified and realized. It is a collaborative process that helps you evaluate what is presently working within your family, identify what needs to be addressed, and implement an action plan to create positive change. The knowledge and insight you have regarding your family is paired with my professional experience to maximize your family’s strengths and successfully navigate parenting challenges.
I engage parents with trust and respect as we consider strategies to help manage daily interactions and challenges. I listen intently, ask key questions, provide information, and offer guidance to support your actions steps. I share research and information to help you improve communication and alleviate power struggles. I celebrate with you as strengthen the bonds in your family.
Use effective language and positive parenting tools to address behavior struggles and improve daily routines. Gain new skills to respond intentionally to situations rather than react emotionally. As your children listen more and tantrum less, you will smile more and nag less.
After working with me, parents find renewed energy and optimism for the job of parenting. You feel empowered to implement and sustain meaningful change. You enjoy deeper connections with your children. You experience better balance in your life. You benefit from enhanced self-care practices. Family life shifts from chaos to calm with fewer feelings of frustration and greater moments of joy.
Coaching differs from counseling and therapy in its concentration on the current situation. It is not designed to delve into the past or work through a crisis. Coaching helps parents realize that they truly are the experts in regards to their children.
A variety of issues are addressed in private coaching and parenting classes. These include work-life balance, sibling rivalry, and tantrums. Many parents are looking to improve listening and cooperation in their family. We tackle plans for screen management, homework, and household chores. Parents work on creating effective routines for mealtime and bedtime. We also address the importance of self-care.
It is not necessary for both parents to engage in coaching or take a parenting class together. Written material is included to help solidify concepts and clarify action steps, which is easily shared with the other parent or care givers.
I meet with parents in person, on the phone, or via Zoom and Facetime. I meet with parents who live across the United States and abroad.
Parent coaching benefits parents who are moving through the stages of separation or divorce. Coaching helps improve communication and solve conflicts to reach desired outcomes. Effective change occurs whether one or both parents engage in the coaching process.
