Parenting is a hero's journey. Let me help you on your quest.
If you’re feeling frustrated, stuck, overwhelmed, isolated, exhausted, or helpless, you could use a guide. I provide insight and advice 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 bossy, aggressive, clingy, 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 can offer you some quick coaching that will both give you immediate insight into what's needed to shift things in your family and help you decide if working with me is the support you need. And if it's not, I can refer you to other resources that may serve you better. I invite you to book a free 20-minute session.
How I work
I work directly with you. I don't intervene with your children, I help support your parenting. As a parent, you are the expert and authority on your child. Your knowledge of your child is as important as my knowledge of human development in our work together.
First, schedule a free 20-minute session to get quick support and determine if we'd work well together. After that, our first in-depth coaching session will be an 85-minute intake appointment. If you're in the Seattle area, I invite you to meet in person so we get a stronger sense of each other. If you live out of the area or an in-person meeting is inconvenient, we can meet via video call instead. This intake session allows me to get a clear picture of your child and family and of your objectives for coaching, as well as to give you my thoughts on how we can begin to move through your particular challenges.
Most parenting struggles don't allow for quick fixes. A single session often provides a significant shift in perspective, and is occasionally all that is needed. Usually, it takes more sustained attention and effort to effect change. A commitment to meeting regularly allows us to address the immediate difficulty as well as to make focused and deliberate progress on underlying issues. Following our intake appointment, we'll evaluate our work together three months at a time. We'll begin with an agreement about goals and meeting frequency, and end with a review of progress. In each session, we'll talk through your successes and struggles and move toward your objectives for your self, your parenting, and your family.
I invite you to contact me between sessions 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).
Fees & Payment
The intake appointment fee is $175 (in person or via video call). Regular sessions are $100 ($125 if we're meeting in person). Parent coaching is not covered by insurance. Payment is due at the time of scheduling.
Schedule an Appointment
If you're scheduling for the first time, I strongly recommend you "Register for an Account" at the end of the process for future ease of access.
