Parent Coaching

Do you need one-on-one assistance with setting up a play area, dealing with toddler tantrums, or moving towards cooperative diaper changes?  I have over a decade of experience in helping parents with the day-to-day big and little questions that arise when raising an infant or toddler. Book a private phone or video coaching session or an in-person home visit on the topic of your choice. Common themes include:

These topics are just examples. Each coaching session is entirely individualized, so you can use the time in whatever way feels helpful to you. 

I also offer more structured and comprehensive assessments for longstanding or complex issues. Sleeping and feeding struggles that have proven difficult for you to address so far often respond better to structured assessment and a series of follow-up sessions. If you aren't sure if an assessment makes sense for your situation, feel free to book a coaching session first and we can discuss it together.
