Parenting is a hero's journey. Let me help you on your quest.
I can be your guide if you’re feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, isolated, exhausted, or helpless — helping you to discover what’s going on for your child, and what that asks of you as a parent.
You know your child best, so you know when something isn't right.
Your child may be aggressive, demanding, angry, uncooperative, or anxious. You might be hoping to feel less angry or more confident in your parenting. Or you might just know something’s wrong but you’re not sure what to do about it.
Let's talk. I invite you to book a free 20-minute session for some quick coaching that will both give you immediate insight into what's needed to shift things in your family and help you decide whether working with me is the support you need.
How I work
I work directly with you. I don't intervene with your children, I help support your parenting. As a parent, you know your kid. You’re the expert. Your knowledge of your child is as important as my knowledge of human development in our work together.
Schedule a free 20-minute session to get quick support and determine if we'd make a good team.
If we decide to continue, we’ll meet for an initial in-depth 85 minutes of intake and coaching. If you're in the Seattle area, I invite you to meet in person so we get a stronger sense of each other. Or we can talk via video call. This intake session gives me to get a clear picture of your child, your family, and your objectives for coaching, and gives you some insight and practices to put into play immediately and an overview of how we’ll start moving through your particular challenges.
A single session often provides a significant shift in perspective, and is occasionally all that is needed. But most parenting struggles don't allow for quick fixes, it often takes more sustained attention and effort to effect change. If you’d like ongoing support, we’ll then talk regularly for 55 minutes on an agreed schedule, by phone or video call. In each session, we'll talk through your successes and struggles and move toward your objectives for your self, your parenting, and your family. You’ll get support with immediate difficulties and help making progress on underlying issues.
Between sessions I invite you to contact me via phone, text, or email for free informal support or to share celebrations. If a topic calls for in-depth exploration, I'll ask that we reserve it for a coaching session.
Every three month, we’ll evaluate our work together, reviewing progress, renewing goals, and reevaluating meeting frequency.
Fees & Payment
The intake appointment fee is $175 (in person or via video call). Regular sessions are $100 or $125 if we're meeting in person. Parent coaching is not covered by insurance. Payment is due at the time of scheduling.
