Parenting Strategy Sessions

Hello Parents!


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.

Thank You!
