I'm non-judgmental, experienced and have an excellent understanding of child psychology and the reasons behind children's challenging behaviors.



I know how challenging parenting can be. I've been there. As a mom of two preteens, I'm still there! 

I can help you understand and navigate your child's challenging behaviors along with many other struggles that come with parenthood. 

I can meet with you in your home, in my office in Oakdale, MN or via Skype, Google Hangouts or phone. 

I look forward to working with you!

Although I do offer some in-person classes, I know how busy you are as you're trying to balance the many aspects of life: work, parenting, exercise, household maintenance, etc. 

I started offering online classes in the fall of 2014. Now you can get the information you're seeking when the timing is right for you which provides you with more time to enjoy your family. I look forward to getting to know you virtually!
