“The only thing that really matters in parenting is for the parent to deeply love and accept him or herself.” 

 -Laura Markham



I am so glad you came.

If you’re like most parents, you’re here because you’re exhausted and overwhelmed. You can barely keep your head above water for long enough to identify and find the support your really need. Let’s face it, parenting is one of the hardest jobs on the planet.

Nobody is meant to go it alone. With good support you can navigate this journey with more joy and ease than you might realize is possible.

As an Integral Parent coach, trained by Hand In Hand Parenting and New Ventures West, I’m here to give you some of the care and support you give your children. I listen and listen some more, then guide you toward the solutions that reflect your deepest values and the practices that best empower you and your children. I also know that your child benefits most when you attend to all areas of your life. 

Most importantly, I’m the mother of a highly-sensitive, strong-willed child. I know the feelings of doubt, resentment, helplessness, and utter exhaustion. I also know the enormous delight, joy, and love that make it possible to keep showing up when you think you can’t anymore. And I know what kind of support I desperately needed. That’s why I’m here for you.

I look forward to learning how I can support you!
