When working with families, I focus on coaching the parents first. Parents, you have the greatest impact in your child's life and thus his or her success...period.
What type of issues do the kids have?
Parent coaching clients have children of all ages who have ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Giftedness, Adoption or Foster Care Issues, and even those with no diagnosis at all, just BIG Emotions.
What will I gain from parent coaching?
Parent coaching will help you to:
Do you meet my children?
Not usually. I support adults from the background, placing the healing in the hands of parents and teachers who love the children and have the most invested in their success. I help parents maintain the authority with their children, which can dissipate if they see their parents being corrected. In addition to parent coaching, I am happy to attend school meetings with parents, and consult with teachers on improving behavior. I specialize in children and families impacted by ADHD. As a parent with ADHD and 3 children with ADHD, I understand the unique challenges involved.
