I have training in attachment parenting and positive parenting. I often find much behavioral issues of youth can be resolved with changes to parenting techniques. I love to think outside of the box by using age appropriate interventions while tapping into your family’s existing strengths. We live in a world of high expectations for working parents to be 100% available to their kids. I can help you find realistic goals and implement interventions specific to your family’s unique needs.

I will be your biggest advocate and cheerleader, s you regain control within your parent-child relationship.

“If only my child had come with an instruction manual!” That’s a thought that most parents have had at some point in their lives. Nothing really prepares you to become a parent. Some of us were lucky enough to have parents that set a good example. But others grew up in homes where the dynamic between child and parent was anything but functional or consistently loving. But the truth is, even if you did have loving parents that did right by you 24/7, you can never be fully prepared to handle sticky situations with your own children. You never really know what behavioral challenges your child may wind up struggling with, and how those will affect your other children and the family as a whole. This is where parenting coaching comes in.

Positive parenting can make all the difference in both the stress level a parent feels and in how healthy a child turns out. No one came with a manual, but there is research supported evidence of what is helpful and what is not.

At the core, parental skill development is a highly contextual experience that incorporates thorough family systems assessment. I also take into account a plethora of multicultural variables before embarking on a treatment plan.
