What is a Parenting Coach?
A parenting coach is a trained and certified professional who helps you achieve your goals in creating a fulfilling family life.
As your coach, I will help you clarify what you want to accomplish, set specific goals and make an effective action plan.  I provide you with support, structure, perspective and techniques as we move through the coaching process together.  I am your best cheerleader!  My job also is to hold you accountable for making progress toward meeting your goals.

Parent coaching is inspirational, educational and practical.
We will discover together how much you already know about how to create a healthy home life.  In the occasional “need to know” moment, I will provide skills training in a practical way, so you can use new concepts and skills right away and apply them to your situation.  Coaching is designed to unlock and maximize your parenting potential.

Parent coaching is transformational and beneficial.
The focus of coaching is achieving your goals in parenting and communicating with family members.  We will identify specific plans and ways of thinking that will move you toward achieving your desired goals.  While the focus is on the present and the future, occasioonally we will look to the past if unresolved issues are creating a barrier to you being able to implement the new skills you are learning.  One of the outcomes of coaching is often that healing old history does take place.

The structure of coaching is flexible.
We will design a coaching arrangement that meets your individual needs and schedule.  The basic design consists of:

  • a free (20 minutes) consultation to see if coaching is a good fit for you
  • an intake interview to gather information about your family and create a coaching strategy
  • regular on-going coaching sessions (usually by phone)

Coaching sessions are conducted over the telephone (unless you are nearby in Atlanta),  usually weekly or every other week, lasting for 50 minutes.  Sessions may be focused on one specific challenge you are facing, or on a much broader set of family issues.  Coaching relationships to make lasting change usually lasts from three to six months.  The nature of the goals and the changes you wish to make will determine the length of time that makes sense for you.

What is the cost for parenting coaching?
Coaching is an investment in the future of your family.

Just as you pay providers to care for your physical body, coaching helps to care for your mental, emotional and spiritual “bodies.”  Coaching is not a quick fix strategy; it takes focus, effort, and time to alter habitual patterns and make lasting changes.  That’s why I don’t work with parents who are just wanting to put a band-aid on the problem and get through the crisis at hand–even though this is when most parents are motivated to pick up the phone and call me.  Yes, I’ll most definitely help you through a crisis as a beginning step.  But I want more for you and your family than that.  I want to help you go beyond crisis-control and into “righting the relationship” with your child.  I want to help you transform the struggle of parenting into the joy of parenting.  It’s possible!  If you’re ready to put in the commitment and the work necessary to break the damaging patterns in your family, then let’s talk.  Together, we’ll explore how a coaching relationship can give you confidence and companionship as you weather the ups and downs of family life.
