I offer private coaching sessions for parents who are looking for insight into why the current challenges might be occuring, as well as new tools and strategies to add to the parenting toolbox. My goal is that you leave each and every session with not only new insight, but also with practical tools to carry home with you. I approach this work by exploring the drive and need behind children’s behavior and communication, and then offering new strategies for creating a shift in the current dynamic.
I also help parents look at what is triggered in themselves because of their experiences as a child and how to get some wiggle room in those reactions that feel so automatic.
We’ll work together to help your family create the balance and deep connectedness that you are all seeking.
Becoming a parent often magnifies our sensitivities, triggers, and stumbling blocks in every day life. It can also stir up old wounds and confront us with fears or heartache we didn’t even know were there. Kids need healthy, happy parents…and sometimes it takes some work to get ourselves there. If there are big emotions swirling around inside of us, it becomes nearly impossible to be the parent we want to be.
I often support parents on an individual basis to break through some of their every day challenges, mend relationships, and discover what’s holding them back from feeling fulfilled in their lives. Clever parenting strategies often won’t stick until we’re emotionally ready to jump in, so I help support parents to do the hard work of getting there.

Have neighbors or friends interested in meeting to talk about parenting? I offer small, private classes on all of the same topics I do in my larger workshops, and more. As the “host,” you would gather some other interested parents and we meet to discuss the topic in an interactive and intimate setting. Because of the smaller number of people, each participant has more opportunity to gather tools and insight specific to their situation.
