Finding Joy in
the Messy Middle

Coaching for Conscious, Gentle, or Mindful Parenting

Creating Safe Relationships for the Entire Family with Parent Coaching

Parenthood is one of the greatest joys in life – but nobody said it would be easy. We’re here to raise healthy and empowered children and to enjoy the journey along the way.

Navigating the inevitable hiccups and the larger crises is a normal but challenging part of raising children. Even when trained in intentional parenting styles such as conscious parenting, gentle parenting, attachment parenting, or mindful parenting, we can still find ourselves in situations that are untenable or out of control.

"The parent-child connection is the most powerful mental health intervention known to mankind.”
- Bessel van der Kolk

We use science-backed methods in our parent coaching for creating a safe space for both you and your child.

When your child feels “at home” in the world, they’ll feel safe enough to explore and navigate challenging circumstances. Understanding how the brain and body work during times of stress can empower us to become more thoughtful and compassionate leaders of our family.

You are not alone if:

  • Your child is not responding to other parenting techniques
  • You find yourself frustrated or impatient with your child’s meltdowns or resistance 
  • You and your co-parent do not agree on how to handle the challenges
  • You’re embarrassed by your child’s behavior
  • You are exhausted from constantly managing the situation

Establishing empowerment for a fulfilling life through somatic parent & family coaching

By using these modalities to create a secure base for your child, they can learn to emotionally self-regulate during times of stress.

This sets the stage for personal growth and a cultivation of empathy and confidence that they can use throughout their adult lives and in their adult relationships.

Convenient online coaching for your convenience and privacy

This brain-body coaching approach can be done over video calls – which means you don’t have to find childcare while getting the help you need during parent or family coaching sessions.

Do both parents need to attend the virtual parent coaching?

We will work in whatever variation works for you. Some parents want to attend all sessions together with their co-parent, other times parents want to attend private individual sessions (even if they co-parent with a current or former partner). We can discuss the options during your consultation call.
