"Catherine has the uncanny ability to pull from her personal and professional experiences to offer helpful, supportive advice regardless off the issue. She has an immensely calming presence, is incredibly wise and always looks at the positive side of the situation. I find it difficult not to go to her for advice."

Parenting is a tough job. Just when you think you have the hang of it, kids change. Most parents know when they are in a bad pattern--they just don’t know how to fix it. Whether leaning over a child’s crib for 50 minutes as he falls asleep or offering a picky eater five alternatives every meal, parenting can be exhausting. But it doesn’t have to be.
The Family Coach makes life easier.
There is no shortage of advice about parenting. It can be hard, however, to figure out how those strategies fit into your household dynamics. The Family Coach services are unique in that I come to meet you in your home, where your issues lie. I can see the difficulties first hand and make recommendations that take your family’s personality and structure into consideration.
