I work with parents of young children (toddler through elementary school) to address and improve challenging areas, including but not limited to:

  • getting organized to better manage family logistics, resulting in less stress and less nagging
  • implementing discipline strategies that fit your family (Positive Discipline, Love&Logic, to name a few)
  • understanding your child's temperament and how that affects their behavior
  • limiting screen time and learning about media literacy
  • getting clear on your parenting values and being deliberate about your family culture

Please note that you don’t have to be local to work with me—I coach over the phone or via Skype.

This process helped me to feel less lost as a new mother, more forgiving of myself for my shortcomings and empowered to co-create a family dynamic that enables all members of my family to thrive. It’s so reassuring to hear another mother tell you that what you’re experiencing is ABSOLUTELY NORMAL.

I loved knowing that each week I was going to have a whole hour with a compassionate, intelligent listener. I loved feeling confident that I would be supported, yet challenged. The support felt genuine, because you continued to push me to search for answers to tough questions.
