My approach as a Parent Coach

Being a parent of a teenager can be exhausting, confusing, and scary. You once had this child who went to you for everything, talked to you about everything, and now, they want nothing to do with you or maybe they even hate you.  It’s so hard to figure out what is the right or wrong thing to say to your teenager because to them it looks like you can’t say or do anything right. Your teenager is struggling and now you as the parent are struggling too. 


All of my parent coaching clients have felt defeated, discouraged, and at a loss of what to do when they first came to me. My coaching clients experience their teenagers shutting them out, not confiding in them, snapping at them, and lacking kindness. The interactions can have parents doubting their abilities and confidence in themselves as a parent while growing uncertain of the future. 


My approach to parent coaching is using essential connection based strategies and tools to connect with your teen so your teen feels and knows they have a good relationship with you. I educate parents on how to foundationally build a connecting relationship with their teenager. Every parent has past experiences, some level of stress, and expectations of themselves and of their teenager that is affecting their ability in connecting with their teen. I help parents identify those barriers that are causing a disconnection between them and their teen. In parent coaching, I utilize a result driven style where I help committed parents take action and get positive outcomes fast.


I teach parents the 4 Pillars of Connection that shows parents exactly how to spark and ignite connection and balance autonomy at the same time. Lately, I coach parents on how to repair and maintain connection with their teenager so parents feel proud of the relationship they have created with their teen.


My main goal in parent coaching is for parents to go from heartbroken, lost, and scared to confident, capable, certain and connected. After working with my parent coaching clients, they are experiencing more connection with their teenagers, their teens feel supported and loved, and my parents feel more confident and certain in their abilities as a mom or dad. 


Parent coaching provides the necessary connection based tools and proven strategies to have effective communication, connecting moments, clear boundaries, deep respect, and the trust to know your teen will go to you for support, advice and comfort.

  • Do you provide in person therapy?
    Yes, I provide in person therapy and online therapy. Typically, it is whatever feels convenient and comfortable for the client.
  • What is the length of therapy?
    There is no definitive answer to this question. Though it’s safe to say some individuals find a few sessions are sufficient, while others choose to continue long-term (over 20 sessions). Often individuals choose to continue to work with me through additional layers as they arise while others choose to address additional items outside of the therapeutic context. We can collaborate together to help you make the ultimate choice for yourself.
  • What do I need on my first appointment?
    Prior to your appointment, please complete and sign the consent form, intake form, and good faith estimate.
  • Why choose online therapy?
    Online therapy is special in its own way because you can sit and chat with me from the comfort of your own home, office, car, or where ever feels most comfortable for you. Life is busy and full of commitments. Online therapy saves time on commute, relieves stress on rushing to make your appointment, and helps with worries of childcare. Also, sometimes it is hard for others to open up in an office setting. Online therapy is a great alternative and it allows you to sit in a place of your choosing that might help relieve those barriers.
  • Why don't you take insurance?
    I like the ability to be flexible and customize my clinical approach based on my clients needs in a way that benefits my clients without being limited by insurance companies. Insurance companies require mental health professionals to provide diagnosis and treatment plans reducing confidentiality. In addition, insurance companies can limit the number of sessions and can deny request to increase number of session a client can have.
