My goal is to inspire and empower parents as a means of promoting positive, healthy connections with their children.

One on One Support

I offer one-to-one parent support sessions in your home or a location of your choice at a rate of $90 / hour within a 25-km radius of Ottawa’s centre. I guarantee non-judgemental, empathetic and respectful support for your parenting concerns.

Due to Covid 19 challenges, effective immediately, I will not be offering in-person parent coaching. Instead, I am happy to support you through a virtual zoom meeting format. Our sessions will include 90 minutes of virtual support plus I will prepare a written recap of the session and customized resources.

Telephone Coaching

Alternatively, I can provide telephone coaching sessions at a rate of $75 / hour. We can pre-arrange the time by email, prior to the session.


I can also offer parent support services in the form of workshops  which can be customized to meet your organizations' needs. Please see for a full list of workshops ready to go for your child's school, daycare, community centre, church, or corporate "lunch and learn". Kindly contact me by email or phone for pricing and availability.

Easy Payment Options

I accept payment by cash, cheque, bank transfer or  paypal.
