Our Services

Challenging behaviors are hard, but we can give you the tools to have success. We remove the guesswork and give you exactly what you need to know to become a parenting pro!

When a child acts out, it is natural for us as parents to feel embarrassed, angry and frustrated. It is also natural for us to wonder what we are doing wrong or why parenting is so hard. Or why solutions that work for other children do not work for ours.

Do you want to know why you feel this way?

Because parenting a child who has tough behaviors is really hard. It feels awful when your child is acting out and it is causing you both to suffer.

It is normal to not know what to do. You are not a bad parent. And you are NOT alone.

You just need the right tools so you can be a more effective parent with your child.

We have the tools you need. As a Certified Parent Coach, we work with parents just like you. Parents who want to help their children, but nothing's working.

Our parent coaching sessions give you step by step solutions tailored to your child and your needs.
