Online Private Coaching Practice, the Ninja Parenting Community (NPC)

NPC member Jen, with her two daughters.

In my private coaching practice, members get personalized help with the most challenging parts of raising little kids, like:
– Fear and uncertainty about the future and new realities of the pandemic
– Children’s clingy behavior, disrespect, worrisome outbursts, and sibling rivalries
– Concerns about something being wrong with a child.

We help members thrive, and feel in control of their family’s direction.

“[NPC] is one of the best uses of my energy and time.”
– Nora, Annual NPC Member and Mom of a 4-year-old boy

Come see how this online private coaching practice can be helpful for you!

1-to-1 Parent Coaching

If you’re going through something especially difficult right now, working closely with me privately might be your best option for getting control of the direction that your family life is going in, and for your own peace of mind as a parent.

I’ve helped parents:
– Coparent through divorce
– Get control of completely out-of-control young children
– Achieve potty training success with even the most stubborn kids
– Relocate from one state to another
– Stop spanking and instead discipline positively, changing their whole relationship with their children
– Find happiness and contentment in family life

If you’re struggling with something hugely challenging, I can help you too!
Here’s what you can expect:

  • Private, deep conversations with me as your coach, to help you discover a way forward
  • A personalized guide to keep you on track as you get good at using these tools to transform your life, your child’s life, and your family life into that that which you truly love.
  • Support and guidance through the difficult times, so you can move into something better.
  • Immediate access to the Ninja Parenting Community, where there is 24/7 advice and support.

I believe that you should never have to feel like you’re going it alone.
Let’s work closely together and get you the parenting life you truly want!
