I am currently only seeing clients at specific schools in Santa Cruz County and am not doing private practice at the moment. I will update the site when that service becomes available again. You can also send me an email and I will notify you once that service becomes available.

Counseling vs Coaching? 

Having trouble deciding whether you should do 

therapeutic counseling versus parent coaching? Below are some distinctions that might help.

Parent Coaching

  • short term

  • focuses on techniques and solutions

  • teaches Positive Discipline concepts and tools

  • helps parents address challenges through brainstorming and problem solving 


  • can be longer term

  • focuses on addressing past experiences which can include the way you were parented 

  • addresses deep-rooted patterns and potential changes needed in the family system

Still unsure? Call for a free 20 min. consultation and we can figure it out together! 831-920-3835

Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson didn't set out to explain why Positive Discipline (PD) is so effective, but that is ultimately the result of their book “The Whole-Brian Child”. Many of PD’s core concepts and approaches have worked with families already, but the science behind them gets further explained in how they ultimately promote brain integration.
