Parent Coaching




Parent Coach and EducatorBecoming a parent coach didn’t happen by accident.  It took a crisis during our kids’ teen years to wake me up to a better way to parent.  Caring and good intentions weren’t enough… in fact; they were part of the problem. Read more…

How Parent Coaching Works

My mission is to help parents who struggle with the challenge of raising today’s teens and young adults. Most parents experience times when they feel stuck, caught in a power struggle with their teen, or their teen sees them as the enemy.


What you do or don’t do NOW matters . . .

Through one-on-one sessions or group coaching, I offer support, strategies and techniques that will positively impact your kids and your whole family. With the right approach, you can have a loving relationship with your children and help them become the independent, caring and capable young adults you know they can be.


What are the benefits of working with a parent coach?

  • Do you lie awake at night, worried about your teen’s poor attitude and your deteriorating relationship?
  • Are you frustrated by her lack of motivation and scared she’ll fail?
  • Does everything feel like a power struggle?

Imagine yourself:

  • communicating in a way that makes you a trusted adult
  • setting healthy limits while giving your teen more personal responsibility
  • being more confident in decision-making and consistently enforcing those decisions
  • having a loving and respectful relationship with your child
  • creating a foundation for your family based on your most cherished values

Imagine your children:

  • developing healthy self-esteem and productive attitudes and behaviors
  • becoming successful problem-solvers
  • being able to confidently resist peer pressure
  • committing to their education and developing goals for their future
  • becoming truly capable and prepared to be on their own


When parents change what they’re doing and who they’re being, everything changes.
It’s never too late to do the work, and you don’t have to do it alone.
