I know why you are looking at this page.  You want to know who I am and what qualifies me to tell you how to raise your kids.  Let me start by saying who I am not.  I am not a know it all.  I am not a super nanny.  I am not here to have you watch videos of yourself and feel shame about being caught in your most vulnerable moments.  Most importantly, I am not here to tell you how to raise your kids!

I am here to empower you with the skills you need to raise happy, confident children so that you can incorporate them into your family’s personality.

To tell you who I am, let me tell you how my journey began.  I knew everything there was to know about having children before I had kids.  I had my B.S. in Psychology with a focus on child and adolescent development.  I was a fully qualified Special Education teacher.  I worked with children with severe emotional and behavioral disorders.  Not only that, my students were the best behaved in the school!  How hard could parenting be after that?  I was so prepared.

Then, I had my first child.

Suddenly, I realized that there was a big part of parenting that I was not prepared for.  I didn’t realize just how much I could love this part of me that was walking around outside of me.  I knew about behavior management and conditioning and positive reinforcement.  I didn’t understand how I could feel proud and worried and scared and amazed and in awe and confused all at the same time.  Nothing prepared me for that.

Me being me, I hit the books and the net.  I wanted to know the best way to do things.  I wanted to know the “trick” or the “thing” that was going to make me do it right.  After about a day, I started to cry.  There was so much information.  Most of it contradicted something else.  There were Mommy blogs and expert sites and so much more.  You’ve seen it.  None of it made me feel assured or empowered.  All of it made me feel guilty and horrible.  Everyone knows that the one thing a mother needs no help feeling is guilt!

After allowing myself to feel overwhelmed for a moment, I had an epiphany.  I realized that I needed to ask a different question.  The question is not what makes me the best parent.  After all, parenting isn’t really about me.  It’s about my children.   The question I needed to answer is

What skills do I need to know as a parent that will help my children become happy and productive adults?

I am here to tell you that after an extensive search, I found the answer.

I started with my own children.

I was amazed at how quickly things improved when I made slight changes and kept my focus.  My children were happier.  They were more cooperative.  The yelling stopped.  I was so grateful for the happiness and sense of calm that became the predominant feeling in our home.

I created a program for the parents of my students.

Remember, they were dealing with some severe issues.  Those that were willing followed my skills program.  I had parents coming to me in tears expressing their gratitude and sharing the changes they saw at home.  Children that before were destroying the home and in constant meltdown were laughing and happy and calm.  I have since taken this program and expanded it and adapted it to fit the modern family.

How Times Have Changed!

I am now qualified as a therapist.  I work with families all over the world to bring peace and happiness into their homes.  I have found my calling in parent coaching.

It doesn’t matter if my client is a celebrity, a stay at home mom, a VP in a Fortune 500 company, American, British, Australian, the result is always the same.

When parents become empowered with the skills they need and implement them in their home, calmness, happiness and peace prevails.

This is who I am.  I am an empowered mother of 4 amazing and beautiful children.  I am a teacher, a therapist, a coach. I am here for YOU!
