A parent coach is NOT to be confused with a therapist. A parent coach aims to educate, not diagnose.

Coaching is collaborative and supports parents to be their best. My role is to help educate and encourage you while you are dealing with the stresses of parenting. Having had a career working with young boys, my expertise comes not only from what I know but also being able to assess when something is not within developmental guidelines. In those cases, my role is then to refer you to a specialist.

My focus is to help parents be their best so that their children can be too. The relationship always comes first.

“Our job is too difficult and too beautiful to do alone.”
