Parent Coaching

The abundance of parenting theories in our current culture can be confusing. I use my years as a teacher, parent educator and a parent of two teenagers to help guide families back to the basics. Meeting your child where they are on the continuum of child development with warmth while still holding age appropriate boundaries creates less anxious and more confident parents and children. Using tools and techniques I utilized in my teaching career and from my studies across a range of educational approaches, I help parents find joy in parenting. By helping to identify and break unhealthy generational patterns, I guide parents in creating an emotionally healthy home environment. A parent living a balanced life is able to meet parenting challenges from a grounded space, so at times we work collectively with the whole family while simultaneously supporting a parent's individual areas of challenge and inner growth with individual sessions. Family wellness consists of balanced individual family members working together to create harmony.

Possible areas to cover while creating a plan for your family include:
