I work with schools and nonprofits, in person and by video conference. The focus of my practice is to help facilitate the design and implementation of programs and processes that build internal strengths in children and teens.
As a developmental psychologist and researcher, I bring a three-fold commitment to each coaching relationship: 1) To use the best available knowledge in multi-disciplinary fields related to youth development, 2) To integrate that knowledge with my own expertise, and 3) To apply what I understand to each client’s situation.
As a coach and mentor, I help clients achieve goals based on their own stories and objectives for their families or organizations. As we work together though the coaching process, our discussions intersect the following:
My coaching practice is designed to help you understand the evidence-based ways we create environments that help children thrive at home, school, and throughout life. Awareness of the relationships, experiences, and opportunities that build internal strengths in children is an essential part of helping kids believe in themselves and become pilots of their own lives.
Creating Positive Habits
All families and groups have habits that influence and control their lives. Through coaching, we explore how to replace habits that don’t work well with those that support the healthy development of the children in your family, school, or after-school program.
The goal of coaching is to create positive, lasting change through the client’s own actions. Because nothing changes without practice, we allow enough time between sessions for you to put strategies into action. We evaluate what worked, explore challenges, and refine strategies together.
