Parent/Child Coach & Elementary School Teacher
My parent/child coaching encourages the use of positive and respectful parenting strategies. I believe in treating kids with respect and kindness and connecting with them on an emotional level. Managing our 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 children's work, and I use it 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, 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.
If you’re willing to examine your parenting, find encouragement, or try something new, this is the place for you.
