Parenting Coaching

Parenting is the most important job there is–and the most challenging! You’re a loving and committed parent wanting to raise your child to be respectful, responsible, confident, and fulfilled. The everyday demands of parenting can be frustrating and overwhelming, and can leave you feeling drained and exhausted as you strive to balance family life, work, and personal self-care. While you’re already using some effective parenting skills, your child is also influenced by peers and multimedia. You can reconnect again with an experience of parenting as the most gratifying job there is. Taking into consideration your child’s place on the developmental timeline, attachment theory, a larger cultural context, as well as my 15+ years working with kids and parents, we’ll work together to understand, prepare for, and effectively respond to the growing pains experienced by kids and parents alike!
