Hiring a Parent Coach…

Nothing like a little pressure, right?

I mean, of all the things that you’ve ever sought coaching for,


Unlike parenting books, workshops, or other resources,

parent coaching is distinctive in its ability to bring out that which is

uniquely special, strong, and life-giving in YOU, in YOUR CHILD, and in YOUR FAMILY.

“There have been many people who have helped and encouraged us along the way, but you are the one who has been the most involved with us, who has put tools in our hands, and who has continually stood firm… Thank you for what you have done for Jacob; thank you for what you have done for our family. I believe I understand better how to be his mom because you have been part of our lives.”
Ginger, Parent of 14-year old boy with Asperger’s, Washington
“All your time on the phone was a great encouragement, and your words always made us feel we can all press on and move into a new season. Your face always shined with hope! Thank you!”
Jenny, Parent of a teen diagnosed with ODD, Washington

What can you expect?

The coaching relationship is a collaborative effort, driven by your commitment as a parent
to engage in a process of personal discovery and growth.
This will, in turn, generate positive growth and change throughout all areas of your family.

Because of its personal and engaging nature, coaching is capable of accelerating personal growth
by providing focus and creating a greater awareness of possibilities.

that, as parents, we make an implicit vow when a child becomes part of our family
to do our best to love and care for that child,
and that keeping that vow is critical to the well-being of both parents and children.

Special Needs Kids

AS THE PARENT OF FOUR CHILDREN – two biological, one adopted, and one “bonus” son –
one of whom was diagnosed with ADD and one of whom experienced severe learning disabilities,
I know what it means to be a parent of children with special needs.  

I know the fear and uncertainty of trying to sort out what my child’s true needs were, and how to meet them.
I know the inner turmoil of trying to support them, while at the same time trying not to compensate
for their struggles in ways that might get in the way of their growth.  

I know the difficult place I often found myself in as I tried to advocate for my children
in positive ways that would generate a collaborative spirit
between myself and the school staff who were working with them.

AS A SPECIAL EDUCATOR, I know what schools go through in trying to meet the needs of all diverse learners with limited resources.  

I know how important it is to create good communication between
home and school, to collaborate as a team, investing time and energy
in coming up with creative solutions to meet each child’s unique needs.

I know how important it is to a family and to a child’s future
to look beyond just academic needs
to take into account social, emotional, and behavioral needs as well.

AS YOUR “TEAMMATE” in working with you as the parent of a special needs child,
whether as a consultant, or coach, or combination of both,
I know what it means to have someone there for you who understands the process of special education,
and has only your best interest and the best interest of your child at heart.
