What is Parent Coaching?
As your coach, I partner with you in weekly sessions to 1) identify what's working, 2) imagine a better way and 3) create manageable steps towards lasting change in your family.

After two decades of working in adolescent mental health, I feel passionately about empowering parents to raise resilient kids. I am in the trenches with you as I'm also raising four children *imperfectly* in an ever changing and complex world.
hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Marriage, Family and Human Development and I am a PCI® Certified Parent Coach. The PCI® certification is an extensive year-long graduate level course founded in Appreciative Inquiry, one of the pillars of Positive Psychology. PCI® parent coaches undergo rigorous supervised training on the latest coaching techniques and research-based practices that support optimal child development.
In addition to one on one coaching, I'm also a Positive Discipline Parent Educator. I love engaging parents in my fun and interactive workshops. Parents walk away with tools they can use right away to create more calm and confidence in their home. Check this page or my IG account @connection.parenting for the next workshop dates. I also offer free short form classes to church and parent groups in person in the DC Metro area or online anywhere in the US.
What is the Coaching Process like?
We’ll schedule weekly 50 minute phone or video calls. During this time I’ll listen to the challenges you’re experiencing, ask thoughtful questions to determine what changes you’d like to see happen and then together we’ll create manageable steps towards achieving your preferred reality.
I recommend a minimum of 8 sessions to gain the most from the coaching process, with most clients needing 10-12 sessions to fully experience the change they’re seeking.
