Why I Created Parenting by Design...

"I'm a mom that has been where you are right now -- feeling overwhelmed, guilty, ashamed and frustrated.  How could I be successful in other areas of my life but struggle with parenting?

No one trains us for the most difficult job in life -- being a parent. I understand the struggle of having a challenging child, complicated by unhealthy parenting styles I experienced growing up. 

As a Certified Parent Educator with a Masters of Art in Teaching from Brown University, I have experience helping children and families for 30 years. Combined with my real-life experience as a mom, I can help you create extraordinary, lasting change.

This is why I created Parenting by Design: to offer personalized help when parenting is really hard."
