One of my passions is helping parents who are struggling. The parenting journey for them usually begins with some sort of "unexpected," like autism or ADHA or Dyslexia or SPD, which sends them into the role of warrior mom. While I believe this is helpful in order to survive this twist in life, staying in warrior all of the time leads to exhaustion, resentment, and the need to control anything and everything. This won't work! I know, I was there with my son, who is autistic and has ADHD, SPD, anxiety and had apraxia of speech which meant he didn't talk until he was five.
Fast forward through the next seven years and I now know I don't need my son to be different than who he is. In order to be the mom I wanted to be, I had to take care of myself in some unexpected ways. I had to allow myself to feel the emotions I had been repressing -anger, grief, sadness, jealousy, etc. I had to become aware of my thoughts and beliefs, most of which weren't even true. I had to reconnect with joy. All of that combined with the tools I have as a parent, educator and life coach in order to learn and grow myself.
If you are here because you've tried everything else in order to find peace, ease and joy, I'd love to support you! I work with parents who are on their own journey with "unexpecteds"...
children who have special needs or are on their own developmental timeline
children who are totally different from your expectations
daily life just isn't the way they dreamed it would be when they had children
frustration over how others respond or behave with their children.
judgement from all directions - family, friends, professionals and even themselves
Let's ditch the expectations, explore what's actually going on, and find ease and joy!

My parenting tele-classes are a great opportunity for people to learn the tools, strategies and questions that I use in my everyday life. The people who are part of the class are all there for the same reason, which means that we have a wonderful community of supportive moms who really get it AND are not judgmental. The discussions we have are real, honest, supportive and positive with the focus always on helping the parents to lead, not in how to fix the child. When we place the focus on what we can actually influence, ourselves, that is when change starts happening and that is so empowering!
