being able to respond rather than react to your child 

  • when your 3 year old won’t listen when you tell them to put their shoes on...

  • when your 8 year old refuses to get off their iPad when it’s time to do their homework...

  • or your 14 year old has become defiant and disrespectful whenever you ask them to do anything to help at home...

  • and your Trans/Non-binary teen won't talk to you...

If Love and Trying Harder were enough, you wouldn't be here. 

You've come to the right place!

“I feel very connected to my kids and am able to tune in to what they need in the moment.”

Janine - MA, Licensed Acupuncturist, Yoga teacher, mom of 2

When I started working with Kathy I felt so overwhelmed - like it was all beyond me and I had no idea how to handle what was going on with my kids. We were always yelling, things would escalate and it was ugly. No-one was happy and i didn't know what to do. 


Now I feel very connected to my kids and am able to tune in to what they need in the moment. When there's an outburst, I can step back and not have to take it personally. I have confidence that we can shift from there and deal with what’s really going on...and I know we’re all going to be OK!

No-Yell™ parenting is built

with understanding, connection and responding

  1. Understanding what’s happening with your child. It’s physiology!

  2. Connecting and attuning to yourself and your child so they feel safe and loved.

  3. Responding rather than reacting to build your child's social/emotional life skills.


Practiced together they develop resilience - the core of emotional & social wellbeing for life - while strengthening a relationship with your child that will take you through the teen years and beyond!


You were never meant to do this parenting thing alone!


Hi, I’m Kathy

As an RN, parenting coach, trauma-informed child  behavior specialist, grammy & poet, I've worked with hundreds of parents over 12 years in workshops and one-on-one in depth coaching.                        

I've found that connected, healthy relationships and thriving families happen when we understand what's happening with our child and learn how to respond rather than react to button-pushing behavior.


When my kids were young, I felt exhausted, overwhelmed and alone with my struggles. It took years for things to begin to turn around at home, It happened because I connected to the right support and learned a different way of looking at my child's behavior. I no longer felt like I was the only parent struggling. I was finally able to know what to do to best help my kids, and feel deeply connected again.
