What exactly is a Parent Guide?
A parent guide (or coach, if you prefer) is certified in guiding parents to a better understanding of the workings of their parent/child relationship, and how to create deeper, healthier connections within the home. Better behavior, less stress, a more functional family environment! I am a Jai certified parent coach who has also been a parent to five really unique individuals for three decades.
Which is why my guidance is done with compassion, and without judgment. Together we will work to identify problem areas between you and your child, then we will create and implement practical tools for you to produce the environment, energy, and attitude you desire that will strengthen the parent/child relationship(s) in your home. Every family is unique, as is my approach when working with each parent.
How do I know if working with you is for me?
Do you find yourself thinking or saying any of the following...
- Why is parenting this child so hard? He (she) just won't LISTEN!
- I just don't seem to have any influence over him/her anymore.
- When did my cute, happy, little boy (girl) change? I can't reach him (her)!
- I'm so frustrated I could scream, I don't know what to do anymore!
You are NOT alone. Many, many parents are frustrated and anxious about raising their adolescents today. And no wonder, we are living in a very confusing time when cultural messages are influencing both our kids and us! But, you can learn to connect with your unique child and yes, actually enjoy their individual growth through their teen years, I promise!
Listen: If you think you have tried every approach (friending, bribing, grounding, taking away privileges), with short-term or little result and you are still motivated to build a healthier, stronger relationship with the preteen, teen, or young adult in your life...then talking with me to see how I can help, FREE OF CHARGE, to design a program that will work for you is at least worth investigating, right?!

Do I have to live near you? How does this work?
After our initial phone conversation, if you have chosen to move ahead and begin working with me as your parenting guide, we will tailor a package to fit your needs as a busy parent today. I offer a range of services including hourly rates and custom-tailored packages that will begin by looking back at your own upbringing and the patterns you learned/inherited while growing up; which could be influencing your parenting today.
We don't have to live near one another...in fact, most of my client work is done via Skype or FaceTime. So, we'll schedule an appointment that works best for you to talk in the privacy of your home/office (I've even had people FaceTime me from their car). Not comfortable with the "face-to-face" thing? No worries, we can just talk on the phone. I am comfortable with what works best for you!
The best value is in working through a custom package. Yes, it will take some time, but you didn't get here overnight, right? If you choose to enroll in a custom package, tailored to your individual parenting needs, we will "meet" for an hour, once a week, via Skype or FaceTime where we'll check progress and review each lesson that will be sent to you on a weekly basis. The sessions will build on one another and give you the best support along the way.
In addition, with a custom package I will be available via email in between each session as well.
Some of the topics the custom package can include are...forgiveness in parenting, setting boundaries that stick, parenting with family values, and my favorite: The Adolescent Brain! You will receive short, personal assignments tailored to your specific parenting challenges.
No matter how we work together, you will receive a 100% commitment from me to be confidential, compassionate, nonjudgmental, and supportive as I guide you along the way!
*Hourly rates are perfect if you are looking to gain some perspective and a fresh insight on a particular parenting challenge you are facing.
