& you wish it could be different?
Join me in being the parent you want to be
& living the family life you truly desire.

Welcome! I’m SO glad you’re here!

Hi, I’m Karen. I support parents & families on their paths to more peaceful, respectful & joyful relationships with their kids.

So that you can be the parent you want to be & live the family life you truly desire.

 Every day is a new opportunity for connection 

Rethinking parent-child relationships. For parents & families who want to do it differently.

Want to…

  • Help your kids grow up healthy & capable – & handle conflicts without coercion, power struggles, losing your cool or resorting to threats, bribes & time-outs?

  • Be there for your kids, give them everything they need  – & not lose yourself or your relationship with your partner along the way?

  • Have a loving & trusting relationship with your kids – & be a responsible parent?

  • Enjoy being a parent again, have family life be joyful & fun – & less like the hard work it can seem to get through the day?

  • Go to bed at night feeling like you’re doing a good job as a parent – & not lie awake worrying & feeling guilty when it’s been a rough day?

  • Understand why your child behaves the way they do – & how your own beliefs, emotions & unmet needs stand in the way of you being the parent you want to be?
Let’s do it!

What other parents say about working with me

Totally fabulous! You are really wonderful; very approachable, easy to connect with online. I felt immediately comfortable being vulnerable with you about my parenting insecurities, and trusted your experience. It’s clear that you are a pro, you asked very insightful and clarifying questions. I felt immediately understood and supported, and left with real and actionable info.

Working with Karen really helped me!
Karen’s very likeable and had a way of making me feel very comfortable. As a coach, she not only shared her knowledge but saw me as as a person. She connected with me on a personal level, which enabled me to build trust. She was well prepared for our sessions and introduced each topic thoughtfully, which I think is really important when talking about emotional topics like children, being a mum, and relationships. She listened carefully to me and was attuned to my way of thinking. Karen has a great deal of expert knowledge and offered new ways of seeing things that all made a lot of sense to me. I left our coaching sessions with lots of new ways of thinking as well as a concrete idea of what I could do differently in our everyday family life. I always felt as though she was listening to me and that she was hearing me. That was very helpful and exactly what I want as a client.

Karen’s very empathetic and a great coach who finds wonderful words.
Tamara, Mum of three

The course was very valuable for me. After just one module, I was able to see our daily routine and the way our child was behaving in a different light. I could see why she was behaving in that way and understand what she really needed. We made a small adjustment to our daily routine, which had the big effect that now I and my kids can start our day less stressed, happier and feeling more connected to each other.

Our meeting was so, so fabulous, and I’ve found the paradigm shifts that we discussed really informing my mindset during some challenging behaviors/emotional states that have come up around the end of the school year!  So fantastic!
