Parent Coaching helps parents define their “big picture” goals for their children. Who do they want their children to be when they grow up? What character strengths do they want their children to have? Once they can see the big picture, I help them determine both how to handle children’s misbehavior AND how to set their children up to use positive behaviors– in ways that grow those character traits.
Parents want their teens to be successful, and teens want that just as much for themselves. However, they often don’t have the life experience required to know how to handle the multiple challenges they face in their social, academic, and internal worlds. I use specific tools to help teens see the strengths they already have but may not be using as much as they could. We develop strategies for taking on their challenges in small bites so they are more likely to experience success and be motivated to keep trying. We work as a team to help them see just how capable and resilient they are!
As your life coach, I help you look at where you are, where you want to be, and what is creating the gap in between. We work as a team to establish your strengths and top values, and then develop the strategies that help you live those values and use your strengths to really get what you want out of life. Whether you’re feeling stuck in your personal life or career, struggling with difficult relationships, or just in a muddle and not sure what is missing, coaching can help you define what you need and how to get it!
