Welcome

Parenting is a turbulent journey....full of bumps, twists and turns. Our greatest joys and our deepest regrets and heartache often accompany our jobs as parents. It is hard, it is incredibly humbling, and it is the best job on the planet. Change can happen, even with family patterns that seem impossibly entrenched. It just starts with little steps, and I can help you get there...

For Parents

I offer private coaching sessions for parents who are seeking support and are looking for new tools and strategies to incorporate into their family structure. My goal is that you leave each session with not only new insight, but also with practical tools to carry home with you.

For Couples

I work with couples anywhere along their journey – from newly dating to those who have been married many years. I also support couples who are separating or already divorced to do the hard work of becoming a solid co-parenting team.

For Schools

I act as a consultant and trainer for educators and administrators in early childhood programs. My work includes private consultations with directors, training and professional development classes for teachers, and collaborative partnership in challenging cases.

“Always” and “Never”

When our children are speaking to us about all of the injustice they face, like having to clean up a mess or not getting a playdate, they will often use those lovely trigger words “always” and “never.”

You never let me have playdates!

I always have to do more work than her!

About Bethany

About

I am a trained therapist, wife and mother of three (20, 14, and 11), and was previously a Montessori toddler teacher for 8 years. I have the great privilege of fusing all of these areas of experience into a private practice in which I support parents, couples, and teachers to lovingly guide and deeply connect with the children they share their lives with.

Workshops

“I love Bethany’s workshops! Her practical, straightforward advice is offered with lots of heart and humor. I find myself alternating between grabbing a kleenex and belly laughs.” – Allysa

I offer parenting workshops for schools, businesses, non-profit organizations, and privately formed groups. If you’d be interested in hiring me for your group, or in attending one on my publicly offered workshops, learn more here.

Testimonials

From Parents:
“Bethany has been an invaluable resource for our family. The breadth of her experiences – as a counselor, a Montessori guide, and a parent – combines with her kindness and wit to provide parenting coaching in the form of real life, really usable suggestions. She has helped our family immensely with handling both big transitions (new bed, new class, potty learning) and little every day occurrences. We are very grateful to have Bethany’s guidance and support.” — Elaine

“I first approached Bethany for help dealing with my two very active, very demanding little daredevils, but soon discovered that most of my parenting tricks were really pretty solid….it was actually my own well-being that needed some care and support. Bethany helped me identify all of the triggers and fears I’d brought with me into motherhood and how it was getting in the way of being the mom, the wife, the friend I want to be. It’s so much easier to parent now that I’m taking good care of my own emotional scrapes and bruises.” —Farrah
