Who are you?
I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt and daughter. I have two boys aged 6 and 8 years who keep me dedicated to practicing what I teach other parents to do!
So, what is it that you do?
I help parents solve sleep issues and behavioural struggles using positive parenting solutions. Through support, guidance and commitment we decrease the struggle and increase the joy-parenting should be fun!
What are your credentials?
I have my Bachelor’s degree in science and a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education. I was a kindergarten teacher in the United States before moving to Canada. I am trained in both Positive Discipline and Positive Parenting Solutions. My general parenting philosophy is based on Adlerian Psychology, which focuses on respect for kids and treating them as equals. I have been working with families for over 15 years and am fulfilled daily by seeing parents re-connect with their children.
How does the process work?
I meet with parents face-to-face, via phone, or skype to get the process started. Within the hour consult you will have a concrete plan with all the details you need to get you off and running! It’s up to you how much you want to meet with me and what best suits your needs and parenting goals.
Why do people need a parent consultant?
If you feel like you are constantly yelling and nagging. If you have to continually remind your kids to do things or parent consulting is what you need to break the cycle. Parenting doesn’t have to be that tough! I will tailor a plan for you to follow and offer support and guidance along the way. With simple, easy to implement parenting solutions that truly work for the long haul!
How do I know if “I” need a parent coach/consultant?
If parenting has become frustrating and stressful. If you no longer feel joy and you dread the moments when tantrums, power struggles, bedtime issues and more arise, as you feel you are lacking tools to properly deal. If you need effective strategies and solutions that truly work to eliminate the negative behaviours long-term.
What sleep methods do you use to teach babies/kids to sleep?
I don’t feel there is one particular method that works for anything parenting from sleep onward. Everything needs to be tailored to meet the comfort level of the family and the needs of the child. It’s important for me to work directly with parents to help ensure that I create a tailored sleep plan that will meet their needs and still offer success for the child and desired sleep goals. Please note that “sleep training” DOES NOT mean leaving your child to cry alone for hours on end. IT DOES mean teaching your child positive sleep habits in a controlled manner that can vary in how present the parents decide to be.
What aged kids do you typically work with?
From birth through early teenage years. As strange as it may sound parenting tools can be used for all ages with minor tweaks to make them age appropriate. ALL kids are looking for positive attention, discipline and guidance!
Do you only work locally?
NO! I work with families all around the globe! With today’s technology of skype and facetime there is no reason you can’t start your consulting today – no matter where you live.
