I have been there! My kids are 15 and 12. We have managed a host of challenges, and there have been moments when I felt all-consumed by parenting frustrations and none of the joy you're "supposed to feel."
My lowest moments were diving into my freezer and stress eating chocolate covered pretzels during tantrums, along with an internal chorus of negative self-talk about how my kid deserved a better mom than I could be.
Now, my parenting is filled with more moments of joy, ease, gratitude, and fun. Part of that shift came from tuning into what I loved about my kids, leaning into my strengths as a mom, learning strategies to cope with stress, and having more fun and connection as a family. Together, we have navigated being an LGBTQ+ family with support, grace, love, and humor.
With my experience as a certified coach, parent, former teacher, and education policy expert, I can support you in finding ease in your parenting! I am compassionate and insightful, and you will find me brimming with ideas, different perspectives, resources, and more.
We will discuss what support you're looking for and see if we are a good fit.
