Parenting Skills to Create a Strong Foundation for your Children

Parenting is a huge responsibility and I believe when your children are young is the time to establish a strong foundation. But there may be confusion and competition between parents. You each have differing expectations and parenting styles. I will help you to create common goals and facilitate open communication so there will be cooperation not competition.

Do you want your children to listen to you and be respectful and do you want to enjoy them but right now it is just frustrating? You may find yourself yelling and then regretting it. I can help you learn to be a firm yet loving parent and have a parenting plan that is thought out and get results. I will guide you in creating this plan that will bring loving structure and discipline into your home. This strong foundation will give your child a feeling of love and security as well as an understanding of respect and responsibility.

Benefits of In Home Coaching vs Therapy

We understand that reaching out for professional help can be overwhelming and feel vulnerable.  This decision can also be challenging logistically as we often have such busy schedules. This is one reason in-home coaching may be the best option for you and your family.  We go to you and meet in the comfort and convenience of your home.  This saves you time from having to drive from one place to another.  Perhaps more importantly is that meeting in the safety of your own home will likely help you and your family feel comfortable causing you to open up more quickly and allow you to get the help you are looking for and meet your goals sooner rather than later.  Our sessions are 90 minutes rather than the traditional 50 minutes, allowing time for everyone to share.

What People say about me

“Lisa has been a Godsend to our family! We have three small children, one of whom is particularly challenging. She quickly was able to pinpoint the dynamics of the family and help us to see behaviors and ways in which we were communicating that needed a shift, yet we were too close too see. We had a lot of work ahead of us and it was overwhelming, but she was able to break it down into a manageable plan and get things turned around starting right after our first session.”
