Parenting and Life Coach
Building and maintaining a healthy family unit is all about relationships. Parenting is learning to have healthy relationships with our kids so there is mutual respect and love. The relationship we have with our spouse or partner determines the health of the family unit. When we work at keeping our primary relationship strong and healthy, we provide a strong foundation for the people who mean the most of us.
The most important relationship of all is the one we have with ourselves. When we nurture our mind, body and spirit we are better equipped to give to the people close to us. We make better partners and better parents.
Whether you come to me for parent coaching or relationship coaching, we always spend time talking about YOU. We cannot give to others when
we have nothing inside to give. When our resources have been depleted, we simply can't be the parent or partner we want to be.
COACHING VIA EMAIL
I will now be offering coaching via EMAIL. That means you can email me in the middle of the night or early in the morning before work. You don't have to commit to a specific time to talk on the phone, which is the standard procedure for coaching.
Over a 21 day period, you can send me up to 10 emails with any of your parenting or relationship challenges. I will get back to you within 24 hours.
The cost: $200

Barb's Parenting Tip of the Week
Whatever we focus on expands. So if we focus on our children's challenging behavior, we get more of it. If, on the other hand we focus on their strengths and abilities, we see more of that. Focus on and acknowledge the behavior you want to see more of.

"I learned more from Barb in 8 sessions than I have from various other counselors and groups. She kept me on track and focused on what needed to be addressed in my life and personality so I wouldn't keep making the same mistakes that always ended up hurting me."
- Rosalind Reid
"From our first conversation, Barb focused on what I was doing right as a mom. Her confidence in that was so real I couldn't help but believe it, too. Over the course of our time together, I became more and more the person she thought I could be -- calmer, more loving and more in control. Barb, I thank you, and my children thank you!"
