Confused on how to move forward? I will walk you through how to make a working home agreement. This provides your teen with consistency and structure. It provides you with a game plan that simplifies follow through.



Learn how to stop fighting

Learn what to actually say and do when something hard happens and your family is in crisis. Find out how to stop the knock-down drag-outs or stonewalling. Practice real-time skills that will change your parenting forever. 


Find ways to reconnect

You don't have to wait for your child to be "back on track" to reconnect. You will learn how to separate business (home agreement) from personal (supporting and loving) so you can stop feeling hurt and exhausted. 

My passion

I help adoptive parents find the joy of one of the most rewarding experiences they can have on this planet‚ÄĒraising children.
