Group Coaching Parent Class

Get the parenting support and strategies you need to navigate and cope with your adult or teen’s mental health challenges!

Family and friends mean well, but they don’t always get it. 


Friends offer great advice, but it isn’t always helpful. 

Co-workers try to console, but they haven't lived it.

Neighbors watch events unfold with prying eyes.

You feel the sting of judgment from your own church home.

There’s nothing quite as painful as watching your child experience a mental health challenge! You might feel confusion, the inability to cope well, and are unsure where to turn for help.  Relationships within the family unit can begin to breakdown. Your marriage is tense.  You've never felt this kind of stress.


Worse of all you feel like you’re the only one experiencing these difficulties!


SOLUTION Navigating a mental health challenge with your child can be completely daunting, totally overwhelming or seriously devastating.  I thoroughly get it and in many ways am still in the trenches of this difficult parenting journey! Along the way, I have discovered the importance of getting proper support for myself, building family communication, and finding the right help for my child.  I’ve created this program because no one should go through this by themselves.  If you need support and direction from of a mom who has “been there, done that”, in a community of like-minded parents, this program is for you. You are no longer alone!

Discover a roadmap that unpacks your current situation and gives practical communication tools to lead you, your child and your whole family towards the hope you long for and help they need.
