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, or their teen sees them as the enemy.
Parent coaching is designed to take you step by step into becoming an effective parent who sees the bigger picture; who has the confidence to do what’s in your child’s best long-term interest; who communicates with love and respect especially in stressful times; and who teaches by example how to successfully to this thing called life.
We begin with a free, half-hour consultation to understand your greatest concerns and desires for your family. If we are a good fit for each other and you are ready to begin this life-changing work, great!
Our sessions may include: defining what you want to accomplish by troubleshooting behaviors as they occur learn and review new skills.
