personalized parenting - my philosophy 

The most important lesson I have learned in my work with children is that partnering with parents is central to supporting children.  The parent-child relationship is the most critical relationship for the child, and while there is an immense amount of responsibility on the parent, there is very little support directly provided for parents.  Working with parents is my passion, and providing parents with support is the goal of my parent coaching. 




support for parents, everyday

Working with parents and children in therapy has been a fulfilling career for many years.  Throughout my work, I noticed with increasing frequency that parents were seeking my advice outside of a therapy context - they wanted support for the everyday challenges involved in parenting.  Parents wanted evidence-based information to help inform parenting decisions.  Parents wanted to feel supported, and to have access to thoughtful information beyond the latest fear-inducing social media article that made them certain they were doing "everything wrong."  

Personalized parenting was created to serve that purpose - to support and encourage parents in navigating the challenges, and joys, of parenting.    Warmly, Elizabeth
