Family Toolkit Coaching


sand-summer-outside-playingThe Family Toolkit started as an idea years ago, when I was a new mom. I was so lucky to have a great “village” around me: super involved grandparents, a loving and supportive husband, and a neighborhood full of families with young children. I came into the whole parenting gig with a professional background working with kids, having worked as a camp counselor, preschool teacher, and therapist. So I felt pretty sure that I’d be a confident Mama!

I quickly learned that parenting is a HUMBLING business. I often wished that I was more connected to a community of parents where it was OK to talk about how vulnerable (and sometimes clueless) I felt. I wished I had someone cheering me on–coaching me from the sidelines to talk with me about which parenting strategies were good ones, and which ones needed a little fine-tuning.

Thus began the long gestation of my business, The Family Toolkit– a menu of coaching products and services for everyday families who struggle with the stresses and joys of parenting. I am passionate about working with parents to help them feel more confident, competent and satisfied while raising their kids. I know that my “toolkit” of parenting tools is always growing and evolving; I hope I can support you in building YOUR toolkit as well.
