How can parent coaching help?
Parent coaching helps families function better like sports coaching helps athletes improve. I provide an expert eye reviewing your interactions, suggesting ways that may work better and following up with you on the changes you are trying to make.
You are so close to the situation that it can be difficult to see how to change things for the better. It can also be challenging to find agreement with your co-parent on your approach. I provide a neutral lens for viewing your situation and seeing new possibilities.
If your home feels chaotic or disconnected, it can trigger undesirable behavior in both you and your kids. I help you figure out how to change the chaos into calm connection.
I provide compassionate, non-judgmental listening to guide you in identifying priorities and finding solutions. You’ll get in touch with your own parenting wisdom and let it shine through!
Can you just do this on your own? Probably, however the process of change is hard. It is much easier when you have support. I’ll help you become the parent you want to be. If you want to improve faster, then parent coaching is a good match.
How does the 6 Session Parent Transformation Program work?
The 6 Session Parent Transformation Program
is designed to help quickly move you from where you are to where you want to be.
The process involves:
- Understanding your current situation
- Determining how you would ideally like your family to operate
- Identifying what is and is not working
- Setting goals and designing ways to reach those goals
- Taking action to meet your goals
- Monitoring the progress being made
I walk with you through each step of the process. I will provide careful listening along with figuring out ideas for
your next choices, actions and decisions. By the end of each 60 minute session, you will have a map to follow. Sessions can be scheduled every 1 - 4 weeks. You set the pace.
After each call, you will receive a follow-up email summarizing
the discussion and action items. You will also have email question and answer support between sessions.
Getting Started with the 6 Session Parent Transformation Program
Begin by scheduling a complimentary Exploration Session. This is not a coaching session, but rather 30 minutes to explore your needs and the possibilities of working together. The purpose of this call
is to determine if this program is the right fit for your goals.
After that we’ll schedule your initial sessions and get you started with some preliminary work.
The 6 Session Parent Transformation Program is $1200.
If you live in the Seattle area and would like to meet in person, there is a travel fee based on the distance
from UW Bothell: 0 - 9 miles = $25, 10 - 19 miles = $50, 20 - 29 = $75, 30 - 39 = $100
How does the single Catalyst Consultation session work?

You can book your session by emailing us
or calling 425-770-1629.
After that you will receive an email to schedule your session, a PayPal invoice and questions about what you'd like to discuss.
Prior to your session, I will review your answers and gather any resources I feel will benefit you.
We’ll connect via phone or Zoom to focus on your needs and how to meet them. You’ll receive an email summary of our call within a day along with any links or resources.
A 90 minute Catalyst Consultation is $250.
My Background as a Personal Parenting Coach
I'm dedicated to guiding you in becoming your best as a parent. I've helped thousands of parents from across the United States to Australia through my online parenting classes, presentations and coaching. When your kids’ behavior is really pushing your buttons, I help you discover ways to set effective limits, invite cooperation and have a lot more fun together!
I have a Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in instructional design and counseling from the University of Washington. I've learned a lot about parenting while raising my own two children and working with other parents. I draw on the wisdom of world-class researchers and parent educators
. My joy comes from helping parents discover ways to respond to their children that are ultimately helpful, not hurtful.
Unlike psychotherapy, I do not provide diagnoses of mental health, psychological
or biopsychosocial assessments, or prescribe any medications. All the information you share is confidential and will not be shared unless
required by law.
