Parent/Child Coach & Elementary School Teacher
My parent/child coaching encourages the use of positive and respectful parenting strategies. I believe treating kids with respect and kindness, connecting with them on an emotional level, and managing our own stress and anger can help create positive changes. Resulting in fewer meltdowns, better problem-solving skills, higher emotional intelligence, and harmony in your home.
I am equally as passionate about coaching children to work through life's struggles by interacting with them through their language which is play. Play is the work of children and I use that to help them make sense of their world.
My perspective is also influenced by my background as a Parent and Elementary school teacher. I've spent over 20 years working with children and families from all walks of life, coaching them through their grief and through their successes, and everything in between. Much of my work and focus has been centered around looking at each of my students as a whole person. I help grade-school-age children learn how to manage anxiety, anger, perfectionism, and low self-esteem. I help parents learn how to support their children in those efforts.
No one is expecting perfection. But, if you’re willing to examine your parenting, find encouragement, or try something new, this is the place for you.
