More Joy,

Less Struggle

Parent Coaching | Classes | Workshops

 

Are you frustrated by the amount of time you spend in conflict with your children? Do you wish you could set more effective boundaries? Would you like someone to commiserate and problem solve with?

Raising tiny humans is complicated, frustrating, and draining! And though I certainly don’t have it all “figured out,” my experiences as a Montessori trained teacher, Positive Discipline instructor, and mother of 4 (under 7!) have provided me with all sorts of learnings about childhood development that I love sharing.

I’m here to help you develop routines, strategies, and household norms that give you more confidence in your parenting approach. And while there will always be struggles, even just a few simple starting points can lead to a major shift in the joy <=> struggle spectrum.

Because I know how hard it is to find time for...anything, I am more than happy to meet you where you are - physically and emotionally:

  • Stuck at home with the kids?  I’m happy to come to you.

  • Looking for a reason to get out? Attend one of my classes, or meet me at a coffee shop.

  • Want to talk, but not be around other people?  We can do phone calls or zoom video chats at times that work for you.

Are you ready to improve your relationship with your children today?

Other Parents Are Saying

“After completing the Positive Discipline class with Liz I have a much clearer idea of what discipline (or lack thereof) should look like. I truly feel like I have the tools to handle any of the tough moments with my children. The ideas are simple and easy to implement. ”

— K, mother of three

“So many good ideas! Thoughtful and compassionate, but still realistic and doable.”

— A, mother of three

“I learned so much and feel like I still have more to learn (and definitely practice). These ideas are sustainable and truly work!”

I have been working professionally with young children for 15 years, with 10 years in education in both public and private schools. I hold Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Virginia and I am an American Montessori Society certified primary teacher.

I am also a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator who geeks out on child development topics. (Seriously, just ask my husband about the size of our library of books on early childhood education, psychology, and development!)

Last but certainly not least, I am the proud mother of four fantastic young children. In my free time (hah!), I enjoy hitting the gym, going for long runs, trying to keep up with my book list, and trying new recipes.
