Being a parent can leave you feeling overwhelmed, tired and burned out. And when you have nothing left to give it's harder to respond to your children in ways that nurture their development and your relationship with them. Parenting beyond punishment is about nurturing relationships, valuing each family member's needs, understanding behavior and the role of neurodevelopment, and recognizing and healing your own childhood wounds.

My goal is to support you and your family as a whole. If you're looking for parent coaching you can join an online group or engage in individual coaching. If you're depleted and not sure what you need or how to get it, join the self-care group. And if you're local to Atlanta, you can come work with me in person. Learn more about my services below, or contact me for a free 20-minute consultation to explore your challenges and how I might best be able to support and guide you.
