Parent Coach

Jen Kiss

EXPERIENCE


As mother to two children, one of which has ADHD, autism, anxiety and trauma, I know firsthand the challenges parents face on both ends of the child rearing spectrum. Parenting my eldest is what led me to become a parent coach. Because I wanted to help parents like me who were struggling with parenting.

When change did not come fast enough for my eldest who was struggling with self-harm, destructive tantrums and big escalations, I devoted myself to learning all about science-backed parenting solutions. And since 2014 I have put that knowledge into practice, producing real results for my child and others.

In 2020, I opened my own practice where I have continued to help parents and their children.

EDUCATION


I graduated from St. Thomas University in St. Paul, MN in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology – Criminal Justice. After having children, I wanted to switch careers to make a difference in the lives of parents like me and children like mine.

Since 2010, I have continued my education through various courses in parenting education, trauma, Autism and ADHD, just to name a few.

In 2020, I completed a 10-month program from Anu Family Services to become certified as a parent coach. This certification program included a special focus in trauma, autism and grief. I believe in lifelong learning and continue to expand my knowledge and skills through various courses and programs on a yearly basis.

What Parents Are Saying…

Wilson - Father of 2

I have worked with many individuals who treat this as a job. Jen Kiss works with passion and it shows in her actions. Would recommend her to anyone in need of parent coaching.

Abby - Mother of 2

In 4 sessions I have a large bank of tools to now refer to when I am in need.

Katie - Mother of 2

She was great to work with and I highly recommend working with her.

William - Father of 2

My wife and I have a combined experience as helping professionals of over 80 years and we were continually impressed with Jen’s capacity to see what was invisible to us. She also very skillfully navigated the conflicts which exist between the two of us, as we attempt to parent from different perspectives, with different personalities.

Amanda - Mother of 2

I really struggled with my preteen daughter and finding the joy in parenting. The challenges of tantrums, lying and disrespect felt overwhelming. Working with Jen helped me reconnect with my daughter and see her in a different light.
