My experience includes over 25 years working with parents (and children) on practical solutions in a variety of school, community, and court mandated settings. I've also "been there" parenting and co-parenting two (now grown) awesome kids.
My Masters is in Counseling from the University of Montana. The core of my studies was based on the person-centered approach of Carl Rogers. At it's heart, is the belief that great work starts with the client + counselor relationship. In other words, GOOD vibes!
My method is rooted in simple and relevant behavioral approaches you can use immediately. I also like to integrate Positive Discipline and Mindfulness as we explore parenting styles. I have a special interest in helping parents reduce their child's screen time dependence. I also enjoy working with parents on cooperatively + positively co-parenting their children. Great for married, unmarried, separated, divorced, LGBTQ, stepparents, birth or adoptive parents. Maintaining a "parenting team" is very doable! Glad to explore those and other parenting challenges you may have.
To get a sense if you feel working together would be of mutual benefit, I offer a free 30 minute consultation.
