Parent Coaching

Feeling run down and afraid you are out of options disciplining your kids?
Don’t know why your child is moody or failing in school?
Are you struggling with trying to connect with your kids?
Do you and your spouse need help getting on the same page?

Coaching can INCREASE:


  • self-worth / honesty

  • motivation

  • personal responsibility

  • effective communication

  • respect and compassion


Coaching can DECREASE:


  • power struggles

  • defiance / entitlement

  • disrespect / lying

  • sibling rivalry

  • attention getting misbehaviors


I offer a multi-level approach to improve your communication and relationship with your child(ren). I have had the honor of witnessing many successes and I share what has worked for others, as well as, take into consideration your own unique values and beliefs.

Whether it’s helping family members understand and support someone with ADD/ADHD, or clarifying family rules and routines to support the counseling, change is more likely to occur naturally when the whole system is involved.

My family and children are very grateful and appreciative for all you have done for us.”

After the initial assessment, goals and objectives will be developed along with a recommended number of sessions. I collaborate with schools, physicians, and other professionals to provide a more effective support plan based on your child's developmental stage.

You will develop personalized tools that reduce the overall stress of the family. Then you will have more energy to focus on the longer term changes that will maintain the new ways of being. 


Many families report major changes in 6-10 visits.

Quick Read Resources for Parents

If there is anything that we wish to change in the child,
we should first examine it and see whether it is not something
that could better be changed in ourselves.
