Parenting

If you're looking to parent without fear or anxiety, seeking to reduce conflict, or want greater connectedness within your family unit or in school, look no further. When I am doing parenting, I work with the parents rather than the children. I meet with parents regarding a variety of issues and concerns. Such as:

  • Behavioral challenges (e.g., aggressive behavior, avoidance)
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Emotional difficulties (anxiety, irritability, depression)
  • Homework issues (procrastination)
  • Managing transitions ( birth of a sibling, moving, entering a new school, death of a grandparent or pet)
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Parenting quirky kids
  • Ways to discuss difficult topics ( sexuality, divorce, illness, death, etc.)


I work with parents to develop strategies and develop coping skills to address their parenting concerns. I typically do not see the child except for reviewing the reward chart and family check-ins. I answer development questions, concerns regarding developmental challenges, or specific social-emotional, cognitive or behavioral issues of a child. All of this  work is done directly with the parents.

I enjoy the process of working with the parents to help them find the answers to their problems. I do this in a gentle coaching manner, guiding from behind and letting you know when you are onto more positive parenting skills. Knowing that this  will bring relief to you and your whole family. The best news is when the parents tell me “I’ve got it, I know we can handle it from here.”
