Parenting Services

Listening Session:

I believe that within you the next-steps to your current parenting discomfort exists. It’s unknown to you because you’re upset, befuddled, scattered, overstimulated with information, or in unexplored territory. What you need is to be heard – to be listened to. That’s what happens when you schedule time with me. I listen. I ask listening questions. I reflect in a listening way. And you arrive at your next step(s). You also learn what some great listening phrases that you can use with your children and big-people loved ones! And feel the great peace of being THAT listened to.

How does it work?

After our initial email to each, we schedule an appointment to be held by phone or private zoom. I listen, with the goal to help you identify what is really bugging you (frequently not the initial thing to which you are responding) and to discover what is next.

At no additional cost, you will also receive my book The Dance of Parenting.

There are as many follow up appointments as you want. The goal is no more than four appointments over the span of a year. However, some people feel the need for more follow up.

I can help you with:

  • Worry or guilt that is spoiling your day.
  • Getting your children to listen to you.
  • A decision you have to make about which you aren’t sure.

Start by​ sending an email to introducing yourself and letting me know what hours work best for you.

Terms: Billing is at $60.00 /60-minute hour. Payments can be made through PayPal.

I liken being heard to being like floating on white puffy clouds gently moving over the earth (in the imaginary world, that works out!)


Sometimes you are just too busy or too overwhelmed to explore a question you have about your child’s health, child development, or resources. We’ll get you started!

The goal of research is to explore topics and open options for next steps.

What types of research can we do for you?

Our research focus is on reviewing literature available about your need, providers who are available for needed services and things to consider when speaking to the provider.

We can help you with researching topics around your child’s diagnosis, your questions about specific parenting challenges like a poorly sleeping child or concerns you have about autism. Allergies, learning problems, sports injuries are other topics. You lead with your question and we find helpful information and resources.

Start by​ sending an email to Include the topics over which you are trying to gain clarity. We will schedule a phone call to clarify your needs and discuss your timeline and the estimated time required.

Terms: ​ We change $30.00 per hour with the estimated time billed. You pay half upfront and the remainder at the end,
