Parenting is the most important job you’ll ever have. I can help you gain the confidence to PARENT WELL...every day!
I am an adoptive parent of three fabulous young adults ages 24, 25, and 29 who have been my teachers and my inspiration. I have worked in alcohol and drug prevention, mental health advocacy and prevention, and family planning. I have been a university health educator, an executive director of two non-profit organizations, and a consultant for a large corporation.
In 2003 I was one of the first to graduate from the Parent Coaching Institute as a PCI Certified Parent Coach®. I was a founding partner and Parent Coach with Sound Parent, a collective of four PCI Certified Parent Coaches for five years.
My coaching practice blends my experience as a parent with my expertise as a masters-level community health educator to help parents bridge the gap between what they are told will work and what really does work for their family. I have had personal experience with ADHD, adolescent depression, Dyslexia and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). I understand fully what it means to be a parent in chaos.
I am a founding member of the Bainbridge Coalition for Youth and Parents and Imagine Bainbridge, two organizations that promoted a positive environment and relevant opportunities for teens. I co-founded the Mama Llamas, a supportive network for parents of tweens and teens.
In addition to my private practice I am co-owner of Life's a Poodle, a grassroots organization promoting the success and dignity of children who learn differently.
I work with individual parents and couples in the following areas:
- Advocating for a child with learning differences such as Dyslexia, ADHD, or Autism Spectrum
- Co-parenting discrepancies
- Setting appropriate boundaries for all ages
- Setting appropriate screen time boundaries (computer, video games, tablets)
- Teens transitioning home after wilderness or a boarding school placement
- Social networking guidelines (e.g. texting, Facebook, or Twitter for example)
I am available to meet with parents in person or by phone.
