+ Gaining a teammate
I'm on your side. We both have the same goal-- to see your child thrive and lower your stress. There's plenty of research showing the impact of parent stress on children. As your teammate, you can safely vent some of your frustrations to me. Then we can create a concrete plan for taking control and helping your child flourish. If we need to try something else, that's okay. I'll be here for you. We want to find what works.
+ Why trust me?
I know kid brains. I received Bachelor Degrees in both Early Childhood Development and in Psychology. My Master’s Degree was in Cognitive Neuroscience from the Brain Development Lab at the University of Oregon’s Psychology Department.
My graduate thesis was on parenting. It discussed how parents improved after participating in a parenting intervention. Our Laboratory's intervention had found previously that there was a greater impact to improve children's attention by indirectly working with parents than by directly training children's attention. In my thesis I dug deeper to explore which parent behaviors were actually improving following a modified parenting intervention.
I know ADHD brains. I was diagnosed, myself, while double majoring in Child Development and Psychology. I used every opportunity to study more about how my brain worked differently, and why. Initially, it was so I could do my best in school-- like a cheat sheet for my brain. But I became very interested in individual differences in cognitive performance, using my own, rather unique, brain as a template to understand more, faster. For graduate study, I chose to join Helen Neville's Brain Development Lab, where they specialized in the neuroplasticity of attention. I continued to take courses and select topics that would allow me to learn more about what makes my brain different.
Fun Fact I started working with children at Disneyland, where I interacted one-on-one for 4 years, observing parent child dynamics at the “Happiest Place on Earth”.

If you’d like a more thorough and customized plan for your family, with ongoing accountability and refinement, parent coaching is a great option.
If you and your child are having constant power struggles, especially if they’re getting close to middle school age, they might be ready for coaching themselves.
In any case, starting with Parent Consulting might be a good way establish your goals and get started. If you’d prefer to discuss the other options first, you may contact me to chat about your child.
