Over the past 30 years, I have created, mentored and facilitated personal growth journeys and experiences advocating for people all over the world. I co-founded a one-of-a-kind wilderness therapy program for adolescents and young adults in 1997, and was at the forefront of the parallel process for parents by offering coaching and workshops while their child was in wilderness therapy.
As your Parent Coach, I walk this journey with you. I am here to help shine a light on what's possible for your empowerment, personal and co-parenting growth and shifting family dynamics.
During my career as a program director, clinical director, wilderness therapist and coach, I have gained extensive experience using best practices working with struggling children, adolescents and young adults including learning differences, spectrum diagnoses, trauma and addiction. My passion is to support others in cultivating an authentic and deeply connected life.
I hold a Master's degree in Therapeutic Recreation with post graduate work in counseling psychology. I am a certified Deep Transformational Coach trained with the Institute of Life Coach Training and the Center for Transformational Coaching.
Throughout my life and as a parent, I have journeyed the path of transformation, changing discomfort into possibility, shifting ways of being and trusting my intuitive knowing. I invite parents to step into their discomfort, to recognize and appreciate effort and successes, and to understand and parent to their childs temperaments. Through stepping into our own discomfort and owning the places where we are can actualize change, we can offer a new experience for our families.
You have been so kind and generous with yourself in supporting me and my daughter through these complex and challenging times. I sincerely appreciate who you are, your training, and how you have treated me. Finally, I thank you with all my heart and I feel as if you helped us through a crack in the fabric of time.
It is important to note that a child in clinical crisis — such as self-harm or suicidal ideation — must be supported by an individual or family therapist, not Solutions Parenting Support. Our crisis parent coaching support is meant to help you with highly challenging situations within the parenting dynamic and give you strategic solutions to better respond to your child’s behaviors.
