I know how hard you're working to be the best parent you can be!

I also know how frustrating and overwhelming it can feel when you don’t understand what’s happening with your child and are trying so hard to be patient. 

At the same time, in order to reach out for help, you have to overcome the voices around and inside you that are telling you that you should know what to do already.


When you add being worried that assumptions about your lifestyle preferences will be tied directly to your kid's problems, it's even harder. Right?

Which of these sound like you?

  • You just wish you understood what's happening with your child or teen

  • You’re so willing to do what you need to in order to make things better - if you only knew what to do!

  • You’ve read the positive parenting books and talked to family and friends but nothing seems to work in any lasting way.

  • You have perfectionist qualities and tend toward high expectations.

  • You've been struggling on your own for months or even years to break the vicious cycles! 

  • You’re open-minded and willing to try out-of-the-box strategies.

  • You want to get on the same parenting page as your partner or partners.

  • There are one of more situations in your life like a sick parent, job insecurity, divorce, depression or illness adding to the overwhelm of parenting

  • You suspect or know your child may be struggling with their gender identity

  • You’re at your wit's end and wish you had help figuring out what to do, so it wouldn't always feel so overwhelming.

I see you! I was you! What I know is that you are already trying REALLY hard to be a good parent! I have come to believe that becoming more responsive and less reactive as a parent doesn’t come from more will, but rather from more skill.  

Here’s the thing. Brain science and a larger understanding of family dynamics are not typically part of many popular parenting techniques. I believe you can be doing your best and still be missing a key piece of the parenting puzzle...


Let me give that a minute to sink in because it’s not what you typically hear! It's the piece I was missing. Behavior is communication. It’s your child’s first language. This understanding is what has allowed me to help parents in situations that have felt overwhelming or even utterly hopeless and impossible to them.

Maybe you've even been struggling for months or even years to break the cycles of negative exhausting behaviors!

Behavior is Communication

That's why I created The Parenting Foundation Program

I have found in my work with parents over the past 15 years that a strong foundation of guiding principles and strategies rooted in the science and awareness that behavior is communication has helped them

  • understand what's happening with their child or teen

  • start breaking the negative behavior cycles.

  • nurture or even repair the loving connection with their child

  • enjoy more peace at home

The Parenting Foundation Program strengthens your essential parenting skills with practical, effective strategies to respond rather than react to button-pushing behavior. 

Here’s what’s included in this 3 month program:

• 9 1 hour one-on-one coaching sessions via phone or Zoom

• A downloadable Step-by-Step manual/workbook

• Unlimited Parent Tech Support via text or email

• Co-Parent participation for no additional fee

Before deciding whether the Foundation Program is the right support for you, I invite you to meet me in a Parenting Support Consultation.

This consultation is an opportunity to receive some immediate empathy, support and relief as we talk about what's going on at home for you. I'll share my philosophy and coaching process and we'll have a chance to see how we click. 

You'll come away with a glimmer of hope and the next step to help you move forward.
