Kristen discovered Parenting by Connection after searching for a parenting approach that would support healing in her family after multiple incidences of trauma in short period of time. She found this approach not only prompted healing but also provided solutions for every day family challenges. With the support of the Listening Tools, Kristen quickly became an empowered parent leading a transformation in her own family. Her family’s success inspired her to leave her 20 year executive career in Denver to become a Certified Instructor of Parenting by Connection.
Kristen says, “I really enjoy empowering other parents in understanding how our children communicate non-verbally and through their behaviors. I used to be plagued with thoughts like ‘What in the world do I do with this uncooperative, controlling, crazy, %!#*%#! behavior?’ Responding with punishment, control, a lecture or even saintly patience either left me exhausted or escalated into a power struggle. But I know that when I keep myself resourced and I focus on connection, the ultimate outcome is a deeper, more meaningful relationship with my children. My confidence in my parenting has really grown and nothing feels too big for me to handle anymore. And, we are all enjoying more laughter, play and joy in our lives.”
Kristen is passionate about teaching classes, giving talks, leading support groups, and providing one-on-one consultations. She gives many presentations and classes in her hometown of Denver. Her interests include finding creative solutions for challenging behaviors (from difficulty with brushing teeth and separation to nail-biting, sibling rivalry, nightmares, aggression, homework and more). She also has special interests in and experience with divorce, child and adult trauma.
