“Parenthood is an inner change. We ourselves grow because parenting is so deep and intense.” – Fred Rogers
As parents, we all want the best for our children. But we all have times when we second-guess our parenting approach and we all have moments (not with joy but with disappointment) when we say to ourselves “Wow! Did those words just come out of my mouth?!”. These moments can be amplified if your partner has a different parenting style or different parenting experiences.
I can collaborate with you to help you enjoy parenthood and create more joyful memories with your child. We can work together to enhance your relationship with your child by discovering your strengths and highlighting your innate parenting abilities. Together, I can help you understand your child’s triggers and discover more effective ways of responding to your child’s challenging behaviours. My hope is to help you respond (rather than react) to your children’s frustrating behaviours so that you are parenting with awareness (rather than with regret). I am also experienced in helping parents find common-ground and work together as a team.
I offer support and consultation for a variety of topics including the following:
- Anxiety in Children
- Co-Parenting Differences and Challenges
- Defiance in Children
- Parent-Child Attachment and Relationship
- Positive Discipline and Parenting
- Juggling Multiple Roles/Working Parents
- Respectful Communication
- Temper Tantrums and Emotional Regulation
These sessions can be offered in office and via Skype or FaceTime.
