What Parents Are Saying

"At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I often credit Kimberly with saving our lives – at the very least, she’s provided us with support that has dramatically changed our lives. Kimberly asks hard questions, and holds my feet to the fire. She has a gift for asking the right questions, and coming up with strategies that are manageable, comprehensible and always on target. I can’t say enough about her skills and talents. I would highly recommend her to any struggling family."
- Single mother of two adopted boys (ages 9 &13)
"Kimberly has been a God-send to me. She always gets where I’m coming from and supports me while giving me guidance, tools and hope. She has a clear, incisive, on-target vision of parenting and individual growth. She has repeatedly helped me come out of murky confusion into clarity, out of anxiety, fear and worry into feeling empowered, and out of goofing up into acting wisely."
- Single mother of an 18 year-old
"Kimberly’s approach is to focus on the parent first. She knows that to really tackle these situations the parent must see how their own issues are affecting the parent/child relationship. Her approach is caring, no-nonsense and action oriented. I would definitely recommend her."
- Single father of three (ages 9, 9, 12)
"I wanted to take just a minute to write a quick thank you for your services as a parent coach on behalf of myself and my wife. Although we have only worked together a few short months as we prepare for the birth of our third child, you have been nothing short of amazing. We sometimes wonder how we managed as parents before we met you! We feel more confident and calm as we parent our kids together. We look forward to continuing our work together and would and do highly recommend you to all parents, looking to be the parents they want to be an the parents their kids need them to be!"
- Father of two (ages 3 & 5)
"I worked with Kimberly recently for some parent coaching in resolving issues with my teenager. She is superb at finding the right balance of coaching, guidance and providing practical tools. She is insightful and encouraging but also knows when to provide the necessary push me to look deeper at my reactions to given situations. She advocates using curiosity to manage difficult situations, and has equipped me with tools that I am using every day. I will continue working with Kimberly going forward so that I can “be the parent that my child needs me to be” (as Kimberly is fond of saying!) I strongly urge any parent to work with Kimberly, especially when a parent is confronted with recurring challenging interaction with your child."
