You intend to be a calm and connected parent, but life happens, people get overdone and, all too often, the best of intentions fly out the window. Having the patience and energy for life as a parent requires presence, skill and a whole lot of tools. My work is designed to meet you where you are and support you in going where you want to go.

Clients often share with me that being a parent is simultaneously the most rewarding and the most challenging thing they have ever done. I understand how easy it is to feel off track. And, I also know, that it can feel differently. Be it online, one-on-one or with a group, working with me not only shows you how to get the connection you want and the cooperation you need from your kids, day-to-day, it also illuminates ways parenting is an opportunity for powerful personal growth. My work is about helping you cultivate the mindset and skills of living a conscious family life.

Many clients prefer the flexibility and freedom online learning provides. You can move at your own pace, and on your own schedule. And it starts the moment you want it to. Like now. My growing collection of digital courses deliver effective parenting tools, helps you understand your child’s development and abilities, offers tools to strengthen your family relationships and shifts you from an old paradigm of parenting to one that feels more like you. If you are interested in learning more, please send me a note

 

Thank you is completely inadequate. I am forever grateful that you came into my life and the life of our family. You helped me discover a strength and a beauty in myself that I didn’t know was there. You gave me the tools and the support to create a life for my girls that will enable them to do the same for themselves and their families. — Emily
 

[one-on-one]

I coach individuals, couples and families. Every coaching relationship is unique and customized based on the needs and desires of the individual or family. 

Folks I choose to work with are 100% committed to creating a personal, parenting and family life experience that is conscious and bursting with joy, love and abundance! I’m skilled at helping people get clear on where they want to go and supporting them to make the changes to get there. It’s astounding to be a part of people’s journeys in such deep and personal ways. 

If this is what you are looking for, let’s connect. I’d love to learn more about you and your family and share what a coaching relationship with me might look like. 

To give you a taste of some of the ways I’ve supported individuals and families, here are a few “dream scenarios” my clients and I created together. They might be what you're needing, or you may have something else in mind. Let me know. I look forward to hearing from you

Wish  You come to my house and give me insight into what’s going on with my kids, how to connect with them better, and gain more of their cooperation!  

Granted → I come to your home and spend a day and a half observing, listening, engaging with you and your family. I’ll clarify sticking points and over-looked opportunities. And give you the means to course correct.

Wish  I just need a day to step out of life, get clear on what’s going on, be heard, have my basic needs taken care of—and get real guidance on how to deal with some sticky situations at home with my children and partner. 

Granted → You need a day at the spa. We’ll meet and you’ll tell me what’s going on. I listen and reflect. We settle, write, play, eat, and you get a treatment. At day’s end you have new tools, clarity and possibly a new lease on life. 

Wish  I need to get back to myself and gain some insight into a few parenting challenges. Like, yesterday. I don't have time for an online class, I have a morning or afternoon at most. 

Granted → Let’s get our walking shoes on and hit the road, together. A walk and talk, in nature? Done. A balm for the body, mind, heart and soul.

Wish  I have a growing list of questions about my children, I would love to pick your brain.  

Granted → Let’s do a one hour session on the phone or Skype. If history serves, by the 45 minute mark, you’ll have ticked off your list and be raring to get back to your day.

 

Working with you one-on-one has been transformational. You teach, listen, reflect and help me see parenting in a new way. Not to mention showing me how to course correct when things go off track — because they do. Working with you in this way is like turbo charging the process because it’s continuous and I’m immersed in it. And you can’t argue with the results. Nearly every area of my life is juicier, happier and more full. I have more emotional resources, my relationship with my son is amazing and my business has taken off.  What a fantastic investment. — Jeanne
 

[workshops + retreats]

Traveling, connecting with people, sharing ideas, crafting specific offerings for the groups I’m working with, finding just the right place for a perfect gathering . . . I love it all!

In addition to one-on-one coaching, I travel the world speaking to groups, big and small. There's a magic that happens when people come together, push pause on regular life — for a few hours or a few days — exhale, dive into a topic, write, talk, listen, learn, connect, commiserate and inspire one another. The recharge is deep and lasting. 

Here's where I'll be. Join me! And, if your town is not on this list, and you would like to host an event, reach out and let's make it happen

Here are some examples of events I've done in the past, to get your wheels turning:

  • Living room workshops on brain development
  • Retreats with a group of friends
  • Teacher and staff trainings at a school
  • Self-regulation workshops with a group of medical interns
  • Multiple day, deep-dive, retreats with a group of women
  • Intergenerational facilitated conversations
  • Pre- and perinatal exploration with birth professionals
  • Nature walk and talks with teens and parents
  • Child development and parenting discussion with middle-schoolers
  • Prenatal parenting classes
  • Mama/baby gatherings in the park
  • “The Big Stuff” retreats -- Money, Emotions, Sexuality, Technology


 

I want to send my appreciation for all you have provided to our family, in terms of increasing the number of tools available for us and providing a series of new prompts to deepen our relationship with each other, all the while creating a lot more space.  — Janine
