I work with parents who are – just starting out on the parenting journey – have young children and want to establish healthy routines and relationship strategies – are in the trenches with school age and tweeners and want to do everything they can to maintain strong connections with their children and at the same time prepare them for life beyond the family threshold. If you are looking for guidance, focus and clarity in your parenting journey, I can help. I would love to work with you to bring joy, connection and peace into your family life.
Let’s talk. In this free 15-minute discovery session you will determine if working with me will bring about the positive changes you wish to see in your family. We’ll also explore my services, so you can choose the one that is best for you and your family. This will not be a coaching session. We will not solve problems or address issues. This is a time for us to get to know each other better. Or scroll down to see my coaching offers.
You’ve asked and I listened! In an effort to provide a cost-effective alternative to one-on-one coaching plus the benefits of working with like-minded parents, I am now offering a small group coaching program!
This package includes an individual intake questionnaire followed by six group sessions plus email support.
This is for all you parents who are familiar with the less is more approach, but some aspect of life with kids is still giving you the business.
With a 60-minute strategy session, you will focus on a specific challenge and create a plan of action to bring you closer to your goal.
This plan will help you build on your existing roadmap, identify what’s tripping you up, add new strategies to your parenting repertoire and get you back to enjoying life with the kids.
Do the same situations or issues keep tripping you up? And no matter what you try, you can’t seem to nail down a solution that feels right and continues to work over the long haul?
With this three-hour Coaching Package you can update your parenting plan and I will guide you as you practice implementing it with your family to raise capable, cooperative, responsible and respectful kids who will grow into emotionally healthy, high functioning, contributing adults.
This six-hour Coaching Package is perfect for those parents looking to create a parenting strategy they can count on for years. It is an ideal solution for challenges to which you have made little progress or improvement. It is also the right choice if you are facing a parenting problem that requires more urgent or serious attention.
Or, perhaps you are a proactive parent who wants to start with a solid plan– at any stage– and use it to guide you every step of the way.
Either way, my five-hour package delivers the support for you to reach your goals.
There's nothing more important to a parent than the relationship they have with their child. In today’s fast paced world, it’s easy for even the most competent and well-informed parent to feel overwhelmed, frustrated and to question their ability to parent from a place of confidence, intention and purpose.
For the last decade, I have been working one-on-one with parents from the privacy of their own home.
One parent said it best:
“Having Vicki observe the interaction between me and the kids was transformative. After just a few minutes, she was able to pinpoint exactly why we were experiencing daily power struggles and she suggested one small change I could make immediately that could bring about significant and lasting change. The truth is, like many parents, I didn’t think we would see any improvement in such a short time, but I was wrong.
Vicki demonstrated her technique for me and explained why something so simple could be so powerful in creating change. She encouraged me to practice and sure enough, by the end of the day I began feeling more confident, more balanced and clearer about why I was doing what I was doing and as a result, the kids began to respond. Mind blowing to be honest. She continued to work with us throughout the day and helped us create a plan that we felt we could execute once she left. But it didn’t end there.
Over the next few months we checked in and although we floundered from time to time, her confidence in us and her ability to pinpoint where we were getting tripped up allowed us to make small changes that got us back on track within a few days. 2 years later, we are a connected, happy family and my kids have parents who act like true leaders who are committed to empowering their children so they can create, as Vicki says, satisfying and fulfilling lives when they reach adulthood. What parent doesn’t want that assurance.”
No matter where you are in the parenting journey, Personalized In-Home Coaching may be right for you.
A trained parent coach who can observe, evaluate and make recommendations based on real-time interactions between you and the kids.
"During our initial getting-to-know-you call, I felt like someone finally heard and understood my concerns. Vicki listened to me and offered insight into the exact plan we would create together to create a more cohesive, peaceful household. I am so looking forward to working with her as our coach."
-Kate C., Fort Collins, CO, Mother of three
"Vicki simply wants us all to succeed, it is very clear. I have plenty more growing to do in this lifelong role, and I am so very grateful to know Vicki is there to support and guide me; it’s an invaluable feeling knowing her wisdom is available to us. When I think of all of the useless things we all tend to spend our money on, I can’t believe I ever even hesitated on investing in parenting training and coaching; every penny is an investment in the happiness of our family. What on earth is there more important to invest in than that?"
-Megan PK., Carlsbad, CA, Mother of two
"We felt a new sense of hope and a growing confidence in our ability along with more joy and a new reclaimed enthusiasm in our role as parents after working with Vicki."
-Valerie and Todd H., Granby, CT, Parents of two
