Private Parenting Coaching & Counseling

How does Private coaching work?

I offer a range of customized coaching sessions depending on your needs, but start with a two-hour session at my office to meet either you and your child or children, or you and your ex (and possibly new spouse or partner) and learn the issues you are struggling with, find out which tools you are currently using, and help to understand your particular family dynamic and setting. From there, we quickly more forward to discussing possibilities for change, implementation of new tools, and what would best benefit you and your family.

I believe in raising children with respect, including a deep consideration for their developmental and emotional needs.
I love to help parents understand how to establish rules and routines, set boundaries, gain cooperation and communicate effectively with each other and their children. I believe that even parents who went through the most bitter divorce can work through problems and come to reasonable agreements where all parties are satisfied and can work together peacefully.
