Parent Coaching & Support is available for parents and caregivers who want to talk through challenges, explore new strategies, and build additional parenting skills. It is also an opportunity to explore the wide range of emotions that go hand in hand with raising children. Parenting is both the most amazing and the hardest job there is and when we take the time to explore our mindsets, find coping skills, and practice good self-care, we are inevitably better parents.
I don’t believe there is one philosophy or one strategy that works for everyone. But there are a lot of great resources out there that can make a huge impact on family life. The missing piece from those strategies is how exactly to incorporate these great ideas into your life. Together we will explore how to combine research-based resources with your specific challenges and find ways to use your creativity, your experience, your resilience, your strengths, and your talents to make a support plan for your family. My goal is that parents have a safe space to talk about the struggles of raising children: what’s going well and what isn’t, where you are getting stuck, who you are as a person and how that influences your parenting style, the judgments you make about yourself when it’s going well and when it isn’t, and what all of that means to you. It’s tempting to think that we can do this alone and to talk ourselves out of asking for help, but there really is something helpful and healing in talking to someone who is a few steps removed from your life. They say ‘it takes a village’ and I agree. I would be honored to be a part of yours.
