How does coaching work?Back to top

I work with clients via the phone or in person. Flexible arrangements are made that suit your schedule. Sessions consist of 45-60 minutes and can be long term or just a few meetings.

Why Coaching?

Coaching is empowering! It takes you from the realm of wanting to make change to effectively moving forward in ways that benefits you and your entire family. Parenting can overwhelm any of us in a particular season and we might feel unsure, stuck, or discouraged. Investing in coaching will make a difference in your perspective, your practices, your priorities, and your parenting. Most of all, it will affirm and encourage you with the understanding of what you are doing right.

Testimonials:Back to top


"You helped me have many 'ah-ha' moments about my life and my parenting that I would not have had otherwise. I appreciated that you didn't force a certain path for me but rather asked me to step back and look at my life and the possibilities for change. You helped me appreciate the positive traits in myself and redirected me to balance and well-being and I will be forever grateful."


"I wanted to truly thank you for your time, commitment, discernment and humor during our times together. I was so encouraged in my walk as a parent. I enjoyed your relevant experiences as a mom. You helped me to put things in perspective and remember to not expect perfection, but progress. It is a process. Thank you so much for all that you invested in my family's life."


"Thank you for coming along side me to be a better parent. You have a wonderful gift of mentoring, teaching, leading, coaching, and challenging. Thank You!"
