Parenting Coach | Behavior Consultant | Social-Emotional Learning Specialist

My mission is to empower parents and teachers to feel calm, capable, and confident so they can problem-solve and create new possibilities with their children. 

My vision is to create a world where behavior is truly understood and used as an opportunity for healing.

I am a parent, professional educator, and student of life. I've practiced Conscious Discipline® for over fifteen years and was a certified instructor for seven. In the summer of 2019, I became a Breathe for Change (B4C) Wellness Champion to support schools' and families' social and emotional well-being at an even deeper level by incorporating mindfulness into my work. 

I will teach you HOW to:

Change the way you see children’s challenging behaviors. 
Remain a calm, capable, and confident parent or educator in the face of children’s challenging behaviors. 
Create a collaborative partnership with challenging children so that you can become a problem-solving team. 

Why? So you can:

Stop the failed cycle that makes us lose our behaviorally challenging children. 
Have peace of mind, and enjoy a better quality of life or quality of work-life. 
Wholeheartedly support challenging children as you work with them to meet expectations and enhance their lagging skills adaptively.

I know what it's like to parent a challenging child and teach challenging children. People are quick to judge when they see a child in your care exhibiting "bad" behavior. It is a lot of pressure. In the meantime, you are still trying to handle the child who is taking up most of your time, energy, and resources. I get it. If you can relate, download my services guide and let's connect.
