My Coaching


Coaching sessions focus on helping you  become the parent you want to be. We work to accomplish the vision you set out for yourself. I can help you to clarify who you are, what you want, what's blocking you, and then I work with you to move you forward. Coaches help clients come up with their own solutions and helps to keep them motivated towards achieving great results. Together, we will decrease your stress by learning new ways to manage challenging situations with your children. The goal is to help you gain confidence in your parenting decisions. .Parent coaching also works to improve the relationship between you and your children using respectful strategies and positive discipline. The end goal is to calm the family dynamics and have you make a closer connection to your children.


I appreciate your trust and the opportunity to work with you! 

What is a Parenting Coach?

A parenting coach works with parents to help them become the parent they want to be.  I can help you with any parenting concerns you have--whether it's behavior issues, homework hell, or power struggles. Sometimes just having another person to talk to and get perspective helps. A coach is not a counselor in that the focus is not on the problem, but on the solution. Coaches also contribute their own expertise and knowledge around a variety of topics.

I'm here to help you be the parent you want to be--because none of us is a perfect parent. We want to be effective, wise and loving but sometimes our anger or exhaustion or fear gets the better of us! And if we are unhappy in our relationships or work, that takes a real toll and can prevent us from being the parent we really want to be. Maybe we're having a moment where we're unfulfilled in our significant relationships or are struggling with unmet needs, abuse, an absent partner, or an uneven distribution of labour. Sometimes, despite feeling grateful for our children, our partners, our families and friends, we have a sense that something is missing from our lives or we just aren't feeling the joy we want to feel.

As a parenting coach, I can coach you on any of these life issues or others, plus provide you with effective parenting tools to help you navigate single parenting or coparenting. The majority of my coaching is done over the telephone; I also coach via Zoom or Skype if preferred. 

I'd be happy to hop on a short complimentary call to hear about what you are dealing with and see how I can best help. Email me some times that work and we can chat. I look forward to hearing from you:
