PARENT COACHING

I view attachment and connection between parents and child as the foundation for not only supporting social-emotional-behavioural challenges, but critical for a child's overall development and well-being. It lays the foundation to support emotional regulation, positive relationships, self-esteem, confidence and mental well-being. Supporting and empowering parents through the beautiful, challenging, confusing, ups and downs of their parenting journey is a true passion of mine. 

I utilize, teach, and promote a strength-based, positive parenting and respect-based approach with the children, parents and families I work with. My goal is to help caregivers build confidence and skill in their parenting approach to raise empowered, autonomous, confident and emotionally healthy children.
