4-Part Parenting With Courage Sessions

Four Powerful Sessions To Reduce Overwhelm, Remove Triggers, Deepen Connection, & Create Meaningful Memories – For Life!

After decades of working with moms, dads, and families in-person in my Charleston, South Caroline therapy practice for decades, I wanted to find a way to support aspiring healthy, happy families around the world.


That’s when I developed and launched my 4-Part Parenting With Courage Sessions. Designed for moms and dads who are feeling frustrated, fed up, and/or freaking out about the current state of their relationship with their child(ren), these four sessions are impactful, transformative, and results-driven.


Done in person, by phone, Zoom, Skype, or in my Charleston office, in just 4 sessions, I help you STOP feeling like you wake up daily facing battles to win or lose, that every conversation with your kid(s) is a confrontation to overcome, and/or that you’ve already lost your ability to think, reason, and parent clearly.


When we work together in my Parenting With Courage 4 Session Series, we begin with a 90-minute introductory session. Our remaining 3 sessions are 60 minutes each. Throughout the process, you’ll have the support you need to put down your swords of struggle, strain, frustration, and fear, and cultivate more compassion, courage, clarity, and confidence when it comes to loving, raising, and engaging your kid(s).

I designed these sessions for parents who are ready to STOP struggling with:

  • Unhealthy or collapsed boundaries between you and your children
  • Having to repeat yourself over and over again so that your kids will actually listen.
  • How to more lovingly and compassionately communicate and relate with your kid(s)

During these 4 powerful one hour sessions, I help you:

  • Get a clear understanding of your greatest challenges, areas of struggle, and concerns when it comes to parenting
  • Deepen into your own experiences of how you were parented – and how your personal history may be clouding your ability to parent with courage
  • Identify EXACTLY what’s driving you crazy about your kid(s) – and what to do about it
  • Learn how to clear your emotional landmines so you can STOP feeling so triggered all the time
  • Discover the common themes dominating your feelings, frustrations, and fears – and learn to diffuse them
  • Explore healthy ways to deeply connect with your kid(s) and partner
  • Learn how to create agenda-free time with your kid(s) so they feel loved, supported, nurtured, and understood
  • Learn how to adopt a “No teach, no preach” approach to spending special time with your family
  • Acknowledge your feelings
  • Learn to deeply acknowledge your kid(s) for who they are
  • Discover how to reconnect to your child(ren) without letting their “bad” behavior create a breakdown
  • Learn to say yes more than you say no STOP putting yourself on back burner
  • Cultivate connection with self and make time for self care
  • Master transitions within your day to maximize quality time
  • End the family wounding – for good!

You don’t have to spend years in therapy to profoundly and powerfully change the dynamics within your family.

If you and/or your child(ren) are already in therapy, my work compliments the therapeutic process – while delivering extraordinary results in record time.


The most valuable investment you can make in yourself and your life is to cultivate the skills needed to parent with courage. This is your legacy. And it’s possible to love that legacy, starting today!

How I Can Help

My unique gifts are based on a lifetime of experiences. My own childhood and the messages I received (unhealthy ones), my personal experience of motherhood (raising four children…now amazing adults) and working for over 30 years with families (witnessing their joy and pain) brings my work to a deeper, holistic approach. An approach that takes your individual needs into consideration. This is not a “cookie cutter” approach to parenting.


In all my years of experience, I have found that once you’ve made the commitment to create small changes in your parenting, within 4 sessions, BIG positive long lasting change occurs!


Of course to help you along the way, I’ll give you homework assignments at the end of each session. And we’ll review your progress in meeting your family goals, at the beginning of the subsequent sessions.

My commitment to you is to helps you to stay committed to yourself.

I’ll show up for you and I need you to show up too!


Our journey together will be inspirational and exciting. You’ll learn about patterns within your family dynamics. You’ll also learn the power of changing your reality simply by making small conscious choices…day by day…moment by moment.

Just Imagine…

  • Being a parent with a plan, a parent who feels confident in their role
  • Learning to respond to your child, rather than react to their behavior
  • Connecting with your child on a deeper level
  • Rekindling the joy in parenthood!

Parenting is one of your most important jobs.

It’s never too late to develop a meaningful relationship with your child…a relationship that will continue to grow as your child grows. Your relationship with your child is vital to their future.

Let’s connect and begin this journey together!
