Parenting is hard work.
It's the only job you'll ever have that doesn't come with a training manual. You feel like you are failing. Often.
You feel alone because you really don't want to admit that you're struggling.
And not happy.
You've read the parenting books. You've tried the magnet charts and rewards. Maybe you've adopted a peaceful parenting approach but still feel lost and triggered.
You know there has to be a better way but feel overwhelmed.
Your kids don't listen. So you yell.
From exhaustion and frustration.
It doesn't have to be this way.
I'm not a parenting expert. I can't tell you how to parent your unique child in your unique family. I'm here to guide you to a deep, loving connection with your child.
I’m here to help you peel back the layers that hijack you from being the
parent your child needs to demonstrate
the behaviors you want to see.
A child that feels connected will listen and cooperate.
Have a family that gets along so well, you'll think you're dreaming.
If this resonates with you, I'd love to connect.
"Irene has been more than a coach for me. She has listened intently, patiently advised me, and shown me more about myself than I even thought I could learn! In addition to being knowledgeable about health, wellness, and the complicated struggles of parenting, she is a truly caring and insightful woman who is not afraid to lift others up and enlighten them. Unlike other counselors and coaches I have turned to in the past, I feel that Irene actually invests in me and my goals. I am already planning to hire her for another session, as the investment has been worth every penny."
