Are you tired of arguments and power struggles with your tween or teen? Worried that your parenting style is missing the mark? My mission is to help you thrive as a parent and family!
With an MS in counseling and over 20 years of experience, I coach parents to use proven parenting strategies, skills, and tools that build positive connections and trust with their tweens and teens. Parents acquire confidence and develop smart parenting muscles with me as their personal coach. They are grateful to know how to eliminate one-word answers, problem-solve together, and understand the challenges of being an adolescent. Click here to sign up for a free coaching session to see if coaching is the solution for you.
I also offer experiential and fun parenting workshops for your school or group. From “Hey, I’m Okay” for emotional wellness, to “Look What’s Coming!” for middle school preparation, and “Why is my Child Ghosting Me?” for parents of tweens and teens. Contact JoAnn about booking a workshop.
A teen’s journey is full of unique challenges that trigger feelings of stress, insecurity, loneliness, and fear. While some girls handle these experiences with strength and resilience, others struggle.
Similarly, many parents of teens experience stress, worry, fear, and questions about how to guide their teen through this exciting, yet challenging stage. They may offer their daughter support and advice, but it can go unnoticed or be met with defiance and rejection.
I can help.
My personalized coaching programs support teens in building confidence, achieving goals, overcoming obstacles, and gaining a sense of purpose and direction.
My parent coaching programs provide a fresh perspective, new approaches, and practical solutions to the unique challenges that arise when parenting teens.
