Once we have come to see our children as whole, with completely intact souls from whom we can learn and grow alongside, THEN parenting becomes joyful.

Hello and Welcome!  I’m a conscious parenting coach here to help you cultivate connection in your parenting journey by teaching you practices to show up fully for yourself AND your children. As a parent of a differently abled child, I specialize in working with families of these very special children.

PARENTING WITH CONFIDENCE, INTENTION + CONNECTION
 

Conscious Parenting Coach
 

WHAT IS PARENT COACHING?

Parent coaching is a collaborative process supporting parents in clarifying their strengths, challenges, values and beliefs. In doing so, parents gain a deep understanding of their own conditioning and triggers as well as appreciating their children’s behavior as a way to identify the need or the lagging skill underneath that behavior. 

 

Parents learn to identify their own patterns, parenting styles, and obstacles that get in the way of truly connecting with their child.

 

Parent and coach work together in a supportive and non-judgmental space allowing the parents to gain greater consciousness into their own parenting.

 

Parents discover the power of their internal knowing, allowing them to find the connection, confidence and joy they have been seeking.

 

IN WORKING WITH ME YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM:

VALUES CLARIFICATION
​What’s most important to you? By working together to clarify your values, roadblocks are eliminated, freeing you to parent from a centered place, empowering you to make decisions based on your values, and with ease.

ABILITY TO SET CLEAR BOUNDARIES

What non-negotiable boundaries do you want to set based on your values? I can help you set limits with connection and compassion. 

GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF BEHAVIORS

What lies beneath your children’s behaviors? With GREATER UNDERSTANDING of the root causes, you can help them develop skills for success, and in many cases watch the challenging behaviors naturally fade away.

 

DEEPER APPRECIATION FOR WHO YOUR CHILD IS

Who are your children beneath the expectations society places on how they SHOULD behave and fit in? I will help you go deeper to UNDERSTAND and ACCEPT your children for who they are and create the conditions for them to thrive

 

UNDERSTANDING YOUR TRIGGERS

What triggers you? We think our kids are responsible for pushing our buttons. But our triggers come from the inside. When we do the work to understand the origins of our triggers and invest in our own healing, we see our children as separate from our fears, beliefs, and patterns, connect with them. We work together to meet their unique needs. 


We spend years in school learning to do math, but aren’t given any instructions on how to do parenting — a most important task — well.
