Family Life Coaching Services
If you find yourself doubting how you spend your time together as a family, if you are struggling to find joy in each day together, if you find establishing routines that stick to be difficult, please join me for virtual family life coaching!
As a family life coach, I strive to empower all families to create meaningful moments of joy, play, and learning. Through an array of coaching packages at different price tiers you'll find options for parent/caregiver coaching as well as workshop options for the whole family.
Why Coaching and Why Do I Coach?
In my former work as a classroom teacher, I learned just how capable EVERY SINGLE student is - and I believe this to be true about all people. Children and their adults are infinitely capable... and we need a village to support us. Rooted in positive psychology, coaching is a field that takes a strength-based approach to working with clients VERY seriously.
As a family educator, I started having more and more conversations with parents and caregivers about things like child development, adult mental health struggles, adult relationships, parent-child relationships, etc. Coaching enables me to leverage content and skills from my Master's in Education in Learning Sciences (the science of how we learn and how we can best teach), the practical experiences I gained from teaching, coaching teachers, and working with families, and the mindfulness and wellness practices I use as a yoga teacher to holistically empower all families to #watchwonderbloom.
What to Expect:
In each session, we'll establish goals for our time, discuss barriers and possible solutions to empower you meet your goals, and end with an action step to try before our next session. I'm an educator and yoga teacher at heart, so when desired, I can share skills and we can practice simple mindfulness strategies that increase well-being.
When you are ready, we will terminate our coaching relationship. I am always available for a check-in/refresh later!
My Pillars For Coaching:
In college, I had the unique opportunity to go on a North Carolina Outward Bound School 28-day backpacking, climbing, canoeing, and service expedition. On this course, I learned about intentional living, creating brave spaces, embracing challenge by choice, and fell in love with Outward Bound's emphasis on knowing the values that hold you up. So, here are the values upon which my coaching practice is built:
Caring: In sessions with me, you will gain skills for practicing self- and family-care. I will strive to be part of your community of care. I also will continue to do what I can to work for improved care for all people on structural and systemic levels (I'm hoping to see coaching covered by insurance in the not-to-distance future!). If the care a client needs is beyond my skill set, I refer clients to highly skilled professional counselors, nutritionists, personal trainers, etc. It takes a village :).
Quality: I am committed to life-long learning as a coach, educator, parent, yoga teacher, etc. Our coaching sessions will be enriched by the use of creative best practices and developmentally appropriate tools and suggestions for the kiddos in your life. Additionally, I empower parents and caregivers to celebrate quality time together rather than stress about the quantity of time we have together. So often, I see parents and caregivers rush play, communication, discipline, etc with each other and the children in their lives. I call parents and caregivers to step gratefully, joyfully, and calmly into each wonder-filled moment we have together.
Empowerment: Watching my little one grow has made it so clear to me that all of us are infinitely capable when we have the security and support to explore. I empower clients to live their best lives through skill-building, goal-setting, visioning, and more. Equity is key for the success of all clients, and I am building collaborations with coaches who are BIPoC to do my part to contribute to wealth redistribution and to ensure that all prospective clients can find the best coach for their family! Part of caring is also striving to be an anti-racist, anti-biased, culturally responsive coach and human and I am invested in this work.
Wellness: We are more likely to set the goals that really matter to us and meet them when we are well. Wellness involves so much more than our physical body. I help clients assess and make time for all parts of wellness, whether spiritual, occupational, physical, etc. Weaving moments of mindfulness into our days is a wonderful way to improve overall wellness and to help children learn self-regulation.
