That’s how I coach. I teach you to “sound out” parenting so that you can learn to do it on your own and walk away with answers.   

I help you raise kids who are kind and resilient and who feel so deeply connected to you that they’ll want to stay close forever.  

But keeping them close and feeling amazing about themselves during childhood (which can be traumatic) is no easy task. I always say that parenting challenges us beyond measure. It’s the hardest-best thing most of us will ever do. And to do it alone is just dumb. We need community, friends, teachers, professionals and loved ones to remind us that: as challenged as we are, we are equally capable….beyond measure.

So dump your parenting drama on me, and I’ll get you all fixed up…and I’ll leave you feeling capable…beyond measure. 

This is how coaching works. You talk (shamelessly). I listen (deeply).  We process (intentionally). Then, we churn out action plans that rock (repeatedly). And ya know why they rock? Because they are designed with every family member in mind.  

So if you’re ready to…

✔ Start rocking in your parenting (at new levels)
✔ Have each family member live up to their potential (despite all your stress)
✔ Have fun and get creative with me (it’s a team effort)
✔ And transform your family life (so your kid will say, “My childhood was awesome…”)


   …Then contact me to set up a Complimentary Parenting Strategy Session and we’ll talk shop. (Hint: when you sign up for instant access to the Rock Your Inner Mama Mantras, you’ll receive an invitation to book this free phone session via my online calendar. Shh, that’s for those of you who’ve read this far.)
