Are you struggling with your children?
Through video, phone, email or face to face parenting sessions, you will learn to:
Effective for children from toddlers through teens
Parenting is the most important and toughest job out there and we typically have very little training for it. The parenting tools and techniques that I use are from the powerful parenting program, Redirecting Children's Behavior (RCB). You will learn practical skills such as how to set limits and boundaries for the parent and the child; how to enhance children's self-esteem, encourage cooperation and develop a sense of responsibility. All of this is accomplished through the positive use of discipline. Discipline is viewed as a positive and motivating tool to teach children self-control. Creative ideas and a specific set of techniques are demonstrated for handling everyday situations such as temper tantrums, aggression and helplessness. The course teaches the child to actively take responsibility for their own life; and how to promote cooperation and successful attitudes. The ultimate goal is to create more enjoyment and fun in the relationships between children and adults.
Co-Parenting and Single Parenting
When families experience divorce, there are specific issues that parents and children deal with. In most situations, it requires time, effort and support in order to heal. The best thing that parents can do to help their children through this process is to learn how to cooperate for the sake of the children. Co-parenting counseling helps divorcing parents learn how to effectively parent in a business-like fashion without getting emotions involved. This is accomplished through improving communication skills and addressing outstanding issues involving the children such as behavioral problems, scheduling issues, etc. Parents will be amazed at how well children can do during divorce when there is improved communication and a cooperative attitude from parents.
Has your child received a diagnosis and is struggling in school? Are you overwhelmed by the amount of information? Do you need help navigating the school system and advocating for your child?

Do you look at other parents with their children and ask yourself why does it look so easy for them? Spirited children can easily overwhelm parents, leaving them feeling frustrated and inadequate. Spirited children are, in fact, simply more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent and uncomfortable with change than the average child. But they are often also exceptional and incredibly rewarding to have in your life. Through two 45 minute parenting sessions, parents will learn how to come to appreciate their spirited children and will take home proven strategies for handling mealtimes, bedtimes, homework, school and many other situations.
