My mission is to provide mindful parent coaching and parenting groups that are evidence-based, while creating opportunities for greater self-awareness, compassion and growth.

Parents participating in these groups will develop:

  • New ways to connect and engage with the young people in their home
  • Greater capacity to regulate children’s emotions
  • Increased parenting confidence
  • Awareness of the impact of their own behavior and feelings on their children’s development

My primary approach to parenting is rooted in the practice of mindfulness.  The groups or individual coaching sessions will provide parents with a base of knowledge, a new way to work with the central issues in parent-child relationships, and a step-by-step method that can be utilized to help parents think about their children in a more reflective way. During our time together we will focus on building respectful relationships with solution-focused problem solving and an understanding of meaning behind behavior.
