Connecting hope, sanity, and serenity for parents of special needs children

About me

Hi! I’m Diana. I’m a wife, a mom to 3 awesome (but also very challenging) kids, and I’m a certified professional parent and family coach. I have a passion for helping hurting families find their way out of darkness and chaos and learn to live again. I especially love working parents whose children struggle with intense emotional and behavior challenges. It is not unusual for the children of the parents I work with to be diagnosed with things like Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), PTSD, OCD, ODD, developmental trauma, mood disorders, FASD, ADHD, learning disabilities, and other forms of mental illness.

I love what I do because I'm a parent of tough kids myself. I know how hard, how intense, and how lonely this journey of parenting "invisible" disabilities is. I also how hard it is to find good help and people who get it! The most important thing I know, however, is that there is a way out of all the ugly and destructive contention, stress, and chaos that so often comes with this journey.

My mission and purpose is to help parents (even the exhausted ones) permanently change the negative dynamics of their home, restore order, reclaim control of their lives, and promote true healing for all members of the family.

I believe:

* Children and families are worth fighting for.

* You are stronger and more capable than you believe

* You are the best expert on your own life and kids, even if you don’t know it yet.

* There is no “one size fits all” approach to parenting...but together we can find the right approach, tools, and skills to fit your specific situations and make your home and family a place that people actually want to live.

*Healing takes time, hard work, patience and flexibility…but it IS possible, and the journey is worth it!

RESULTS & GOALS

My mission and purpose is to help parents (even the exhausted ones) change the negative dynamics of their home, restore order, and promote true healing for all members of the family. Those who are willing to do the work will find courage, direction, and power to transform their lives. They will clearly know what they can and must do to help their families heal. They will also have the tools, motivation, support, and passion to do it.

Some of my primary goals are to help you regain your footing, reclaim control of your life and home, move out of the trenches of chaos, and enjoy a greater sense of peace and satisfaction in your life. Coaching is far more than chitchat or sharing a few good ideas. It is a powerful, focused process of change and growth designed to promote lasting healing and peace.Throughout the coaching process, we work together to untangle the mess that parenting intense children has left in your life and find solutions to the complex challenges you are facing.

Unlike many other services that focus on helping your kids, coaching focuses specifically on you and meeting your unique needs as a parent of children with “invisible” special needs. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry. We embrace our human nature and imperfections. There is no judgement or condemnation. We practice patience and grace (including with ourselves.) Most importantly, we find hope!

In the process of all of this, we work together to rediscover who you are and help you embrace the life you have. Coaching really can help you find serenity…even if your kids are still struggling. For those who are truly ready to make the needed changes to turn things around and have a desire to make things work, coaching can be extremely effective and help you realize success and healing in much less time than you might imagine.

HOW I LIKE TO COACH

Using proven coaching techniques, sprinkled with a little dash of “me”, a healthy dose of reality, and a heaping cup of laughter, I help my clients turn their raw and painful situations into pure gold. I will support you in your journey to find your own footings again, regain control of your home, and learn new tools and skills. I will listen to both what you say and what you don’t say. I will challenge you to dig deep and let go of whatever is holding you back and keeping you stuck. I will also help you hold tightly to that which is worth keeping, and help you find positive, effective ways of connecting with even the most difficult kids. Most importantly, I will help you find peace, joy, and healing in the process.

My style is warm, friendly, open, honest, and real. I am here to walk your journey with you. We will work together to help you find what you need to fill your emotional bucket. Together we will reignite your spark and passion, help create safety, security, and structure in your home, learn healthy relationship skills, and help you find balance and harmony in ways that works for you and for your family.

I firmly believe that healing happens through relationships. This is true for parent-child relationships and also marriage, family, and even work relationships. I also believe that parents are the most effective change and healing agents for their children. This is the #1 reason why I work with parents and not kids!

I also believe that parenting is about parents, not children. The most effective parenting methods are the ones that meet the needs of your children. They may or may not be the methods the parents like or ones that come naturally to you as the parent. Nevertheless, if true healing and peace are what you are after, the most effective parenting methods are still the ones that meet the needs of your children. As those needs are met, boundaries are enforced, and connections are made, healing will happen.

OFFERINGS


PRIVATE COACHING

One-on-one coaching allows us to focus entirely on your specific situation and family and find solutions that work for you! You are in the driver’s seat and get to decide where we go and what we work on.

Thanks to technology, I work with families from all over the world. All sessions are conducted via phone or internet video conference.

ONLINE COACHING

Using online video conferencing, we can meet face to face, even if there are thousands of miles between us. This allows us to make a strong connect with each other as we work together from our own familiar spaces.

There are no long commutes, office waiting rooms, and no special equipment is required. As long as you've got a camera enabled device (phone, tablet, laptop, etc), a quiet space, and a good WiFi connection, we're good to go!

Short courses or group coaching

I regularly offer live webinar classes and educational presentations on a variety of parenting, relationship, and self-care topics.

Group coaching is offered in small groups of 3-5 people. The process is similar to private coaching except our discussions are based on pre-assigned topics and there are more people involved. We meet online with the same small group of people once per week for approximately 50 minutes. You may form your own group or join an open registration group.

PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCE

Much of what I know, I've learned from the school of hard knocks! I am a parent of two children with intense, and often "invisible" special needs. We have been through many rough waters, but we have found our way to serenity...and we've kept our family together in the process.

I have been an active blogger for years. I have run a nationwide non-profit that provided respite retreats for worn out moms of tough kids. I have taught many classes and informally coached many, many families over the years. I have helped them learn solid therapeutic parenting skills, ways to connect with children who don't want to be loved, and helped them understand their children's behavior from a new perspective. I'd love to help you, too!
