“Parenting doesn’t have to be overwhelming…”

As a counselor and parent educator, I will help you understand the reasons for your child’s misbehavior.  You will learn new methods to help create an atmosphere of cooperation, mutual respect and encouragement.  Whether your struggles are with simple day-to-day discipline challenges, or more deeply rooted behavior problems, I can lead you on a path to feeling more confident, less stressed, more purposeful and effective as a parent. In our first meeting, you will have a plan for change, including specific steps to take right away.

It is exciting to see the positive changes that can result from using this proven approach to challenging situations:

  • Develop respectful communication
  • Cooperate as a family
  • Manage emotions and reduce stress
  • Reduce sibling conflicts
  • Empower children to be independent and self-motivated
  • Use consequences that teach, instead of punishment that causes resentment
  • Understand and work toward your goals and values
  • Create academic success
  • Diffuse power struggles

Parenting Support during the Coronavirus

Parenting Support during the Coronavirus” is a free weekly webinar series offered by the Parent Encouragement Program (PEP). Each week we address topics important to parents, such as working from home and caregiving, effective homeschooling, keeping the peace, and other practical topics for coping during this crisis.

With nearly 40 years of experience helping thousands of parents develop strong, resilient families, PEP’s approach works – and is needed now more than ever.

We are also developing a series in Spanish! Let us know if you’d like to receive more information when it becomes available.

Anyone can enroll for FREE!
