“Leave your pride, ego, and narcissism somewhere else. Reactions from those parts of you will reinforce your children’s most primitive fears. ” – Henry Cloud
Parenting can be one of the most fascinating and utterly miserable experiences – at once. Most parents I know deeply love and want to raise their child with as much love and wisdom as possible. Though try as we might, good intentions and our childhood experiences do not always provide the best road map to navigate our parenting journey.
What is parent coaching?
Parent coaching, unlike family therapy, focuses primarily on supporting parent strengths and challenges. I am your guide, advocate, and facilitate your individual grow, self-awareness and skills to most effectively align your goals and intentions with actions and practices that produce results.
The two core components of parent coaching:
1. working with parents to explore their childhood conditioning, as it relates to current parenting challenges, limiting beliefs & expectations, and emotional reactivity.
2. teaching new skills, practices and interventions to help you learn to relate, communicate, understand, and respond (vs. react) to your child while shaping their insight, behaviors and self-awareness.
Parent coaching can take place in the office, over the phone for short check ins and interventions or via Zoom (video conference).
