& parent with confidence

Address and handle challenges like a parenting pro with game-changing parenting tools


With the right parenting toolbox you have

Less Worry and Less Stress

When you have parenting tools to handle challenges you no longer waste time or energy not knowing what to do — or wondering if you’re doing the right thing.

Better Relationships

When you know exactly what communication tools to add to your toolbox, you get to know your kids better and grow your connection.

More Confidence

When you have better tools in your parenting toolbox, you parent with more confidence and raise
confident kids.

The days may be long, but the years are really short.

Don’t waste the time you have worrying

or battling with your kids.

You deserve to experience the joy of parenting.


It's unfair to expect that you will instinctively know how to parent well.

When you start a new job, there is always a training period.  You’re given instruction guides and videos, as well as time to learn about the company and the job before you’re expected to work independently.   

Becoming a parent may be the most important job you’ll ever have, but there is no training period or instruction guide for parenting!  We expect to instinctively know how to raise kids.

But instincts don’t prepare you to handle meltdowns at the grocery store, big emotions, a preschooler that hits, or how to deal with all the various challenges that come up at school.  

This leaves most parents guessing... 

Or using advice from the internet or friends, trying to do the best they can while feeling frustrated and at a loss.

  • Are you constantly on edge?  All it takes is for one kid to not cooperate or forget something and then everything falls apart?
  • Do you find that your cup is completely empty by the end of the day, so you end up snapping when your kids ask you for something and then you feel terrible?
  • Is your child struggling with meltdowns, transitions, issues at school, or any host of things…  and you are at a loss and don’t know what to do?
  • Are you tired of everything you ask becoming a battle?

If you have read the books, scoured the internet, and tried countless strategies — but the days and months have gone by and you’re still at a loss, not feeling like you are the parent that you wanted to be or finding parenting really hard, you’re in the right place.

I get it. I thought I was going to be a naturally great parent, until I had kids.
Then I found out how much I didn't know.
I was at a loss.

I was a mom, a wife, and an entrepreneur running a company. 
On the outside my life looked great, but on the inside I was miserable.
I was insecure, overwhelmed, and at a loss for much of my kids’ early years —
always emotionally exhausted and running on empty.

I hired a coach to help me get out of overwhelm and find some semblance of balance and peace.  I didn’t realize how much coaching affected my parenting until my daughter commented that things were different at home.  When I asked what changed, her response was “you did”.

That was almost 10 years ago.  Coaching changed everything for me and my family.  My relationships with my kids improved exponentially, and we have more peace in our home and lives.  

I became a Certified Professional Coach because I wanted to help parents like me. 
I now coach, speak, and run workshops so I can help as many parents as possible. 
I had to learn how to parent well and I can help you too.

Once you have the right parenting tools in your toolbox, it gets so much easier.

Don't just take my word for it...


 Beginning is as easy as 1, 2, 3...

Stop worrying and guessing, and start parenting with confidence with the right parenting toolbox.

As a mom and parent coach, I know that you want to be a great parent and feel like you’re doing the right things to raise great kids.
In order to do that, you need to know how to handle and address issues as they come up with your kids. 

The problem is that when issues come up and kids are struggling, most parents don’t know what to do, and they feel at a complete loss.

 I believe that parenting shouldn’t have to be so hard, so I created a parenting toolbox full of research-backed tools
that are simple and easy to use and proven to work.  
With a confident parenting toolbox, you’ll have better relationships and more time to enjoy your kids.
