Frequently Asked Questions

I am excited to partner with you! As a parent and educator, I know and understand this is the most important work you will ever do.

What is parent coaching?

Parent Coaching focuses on the parent. Coaching conversations focus on support, a shared partnership, and accountability. The role of a Parent Coach is to provide a non-judgmental environment where parents are heard, receive thoughtful insight, and are given strategic support in order to help make decisions based on their own defined values. Coaching techniques include a process of self-discovery and self-direction, powerful questioning, and strategic goal setting. As a coach, I will help clients evaluate their own personal narratives, identify and navigate obstacles, and help to monitor progress.


Consultations can be on a wide area of targeted concerns. Coaching sessions will help parents identify specific needs, develop goals, and implement strategies to address specific concerns.  A free 20-30 minute phone consultation happens prior to the first visit. Parent Coaching can be conducted in person or via televideo.

How is 1:1 coaching different than therapy?

Coaching is about moving forward, invoking real change, and holding clients accountable. During face-to-face or via zoom, we meet for 10 sessions. I work with clients to identify specific targeted areas, assign action steps, and evaluate progress at each session. Clients have daily access to help and support via texting and emails between sessions.
