Your child's behavior is impacted by your own leftover feelings and beliefs from childhood. Knowing this is the first step to empowered parenting.
Radical self-acceptance and compassion come next.
I've got 3 kids + 1 dog *hello, messes* with my hubby in Austin. My purpose is to raise kids who want to come back home for the holidays to laugh about the "good ol' days."
But these are the good ol' days. I help you lead with connection and awareness - without perfection because that's not a thing - so you can trust your choices and have more fun in the present.
Parenting is an invitation to heal our past hurts and awaken our highest Self. But we need more than information to do this. That's why my coaching works with your mind, body, and spirit. This is how you get crystal clear in your decisions and embody confident, peaceful leadership.
My unique approach fuses my Master's in Elementary Education with my experience as a Board Certified Coach trained in nonviolent communication, mind-body techniques, and trauma-responsive tools to transform generational patterns and beliefs that are blocking you from showing up how you want.
As a Certified Parenting by Connection Instructor through Hand in Hand Parenting and a Certified Conscious Parenting Coach through the Jai Institute of Parenting, you'll learn cutting-edge research on child development and human behavior so you can understand your children - and yourself - in a whole new way.
Above all, I'm an imperfect parent committed to leading with love instead of fear.

my free guide to setting boundaries that actually work while maintaining a loving relationship with your child...and yourself
In 2014, I became a mother rather unexpectedly. It was a beautiful surprise but a surprise nonetheless. And I had no idea what to do.
I was an elementary school teacher living in Brooklyn with my now husband. We were just two lovebirds off to spring break in Costa Rica, but we came back with a little more than a tan. I should have known that honeymoon suite had baby-making energy!
My world was turned upside down, and the love I felt when I met my son split me right open. I also felt super vulnerable and a lot of pressure …. how can I be the best parent for him when I'm still figuring out how to be a fulfilled, healthy adult?
I had a lot of experience teaching kids but that didn't prepare me. I had growing to do and needed to heal old wounds so I could be the kind, patient, confident mother I always dreamed of being.
Having my first born in this unexpected way was a divine catalyst in finding my purpose.
I was meant to learn the true meaning of family and live those values. Fast forward almost 10 years later — we’ve got two more incredible children and understand the unconditional acceptance and love that exists within the family we create is our birthright. But practicing these values daily? That commitment is our choice.
I continue to make mistakes and my children are my greatest teachers.
I’ve been on a path of self-understanding while stewarding my three imaginative and tender-hearted humans with my husband. And we're all on this wild ride together.
I used to feel overwhelmed by fear and judgement. But with some new knowledge and plenty of unlearning, I've fundamentally improved all of my relationships starting with myself. I released old patterns to make space for more love. I practiced embodying the tools until I could work with my kids through the messiness of growing up. I don't need to overpower or become a doormat to lead this way.
I would be honored to help you on your journey to emotional freedom and connection — whatever that looks like right now. I promise the juice is worth the squeeze.
We'll steal 30-minutes to get to know each other and find out how I can help you find more joy, cooperation and ease.
