Parenting Challenging Kids

Learning Cohorts & Support Groups

Enroll this Summer 2023!

I LOVE groups because you get support and guidance, and you get to see that you are not the only family who is struggling.

Does your child or adolescent struggle to regulate their emotions or behaviors, attend school, or be more interested in life? There is a way forward to help your youth live in a world that demands too much.

Join a cohort to get support as you learn!

You've probably tried all the things: the charts, the rewards, the threats and've tried being more consistent, holding firmer boundaries, and even just giving in (let's face it, sometimes the only thing we can do to survive in a moment is to "give in"). I'm going to help you shift your perspective on these challenges, and learn how and why to do things altogether differently.

While ALL children's brains and bodies are still growing, some youth need more help from us in order to build regulation skills. They need us to help them FEEL safe, because when kids do not feel safe, they lash out, punch, kick, run away and do all kinds of things that make us worry. Hint: just because everything looks safe to us does not mean their nervous system experiences it as safe.

There is no chart, reward, or punishment that will change their ability to do better. Instead, what they need is our regulated adult brain to co-regulate with over and over again. And even if regulation is something you struggle with, it is something you can increase right alongside your kid.
