This educational group is for parents ready to actively learn new ways to support their children as well as take a deep dive into their own understanding of themselves! Learn more below.
As soon as I became a mom, I was bombarded with information telling me how to raise and respond to my son. It was absolutely overwhelming and I lost myself trying to keep up. Sorting through the scripts, the "right" and "wrong" way to approach a scenario, and often times going against what I really wanted to do became information overload.
I enjoyed learning new tips and my kids definitely benefited, but the real shift and improvement came when I:
Adjusted my mindset
Started asking myself specific questions when faced with a parenting problem
Hand picked the strategies used
And applied them in a very unique way
After all, even though there isn't a one size fit's all approach, I knew what the most important things were when raising children, and it wasn't what a lot of the "experts" were focused on.
When absorbing all of the media out there about parenting, it can really make us feel like if we don't do it perfectly, that we're going to ruin our children. When we hyper-focus on doing it this way, we lose sight of our own skills and parenting through intuition.
Yes, we want to do our best
Yes, we look for tips to address our current concerns
But you're not going to damage your child because you didn't follow the script in the article
You're not going to cause any harm saying "no"
And you're definitely not going to ruin your child if you comment on how pretty or handsome they are from time to time!
(these fear based traps drive me crazy when I see other "professionals" set)
After working with hundreds of families as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Parent Coach, I have found the most effective approaches that get results fast, all while maintaining an attachment based approach that includes the parents amazing strengths, skills, knowledge and perspectives!
The best part?
This method allows you to stick to your own core parenting values, while being respectful towards your children and making space for their thoughts, feelings, and differing moods.
With the Parenting Simplified program, you'll learn effective strategies to address any behavior challenge, laying strong family foundations and predictability, all through a shame free and direct approach!
X No yelling
X No harsh punishments
X Nothing that will make you feel guilty as a mama
Because this method is so effective within the homes of the families I serve, I had to share them outside of the family therapy sessions!
That is why I created an online community for parents who are ready to get clear and proven strategies to raise their children with ease.

We take deep dives into how we were raised by our own parents, how that contributes to the ways in which we respond to our children, and examine if it aligns with our parenting goals. We have a FB group for members and previous members to get support and questions answered! It takes a village, right?!
I want each and every member to feel supported through the process and have tool boxes packed with strategies to guide their children and meet what ever parenting goal you have.

"Fear based" parenting reactions and how to end them
Helping your children through tantrums
Becoming comfortable with big feelings
