As The Life Coach 4 Kids….
I empower kids to connect with their soul’s unique purpose, so they can live with confidence, love, happiness and overall positive well-being. I transform families into loving teams who celebrate their diversity, while striving to add more love, peace, joy and acceptance of self and others to their family and community.
My mission in this life is to move beyond “fixing kids” into guiding the journey to strengthen kids’ sense of self and belief they are enough. To empower families to a deeper sense of acceptance, understanding, compassion, love and laughter. To acknowledge and support parents’ overwhelm with empathy as we restore their hope for the family they dreamed of. To transform fear and isolation into love and connection.
If this resonates, I invite you to explore the ways we can work together to empower the kids in your life.
for kids and families
There are times we just know something is “off” with our child or family. Traditionally we’ve thought something is broken that we need to fix. I believe when we feel something is off, nothing has to be broken. Nothing needs fixing. But there are relationships that are not working as well as they could be.
Sometimes this is a child’s relationship with themselves that isn’t working. It can look like: acting out, anger, anxiety, inattentiveness, feeling alone, lacking confidence, perfectionism, insecurity, questioning their purpose or who they really are, unwillingness to try new things, self harm, self sabotaging, confusion about their identity.
Sometimes the relationship between family members is experiencing tension and this can look like: sibling fights, anger, isolating behaviors, withdrawal, name calling, threats, lying, withholding the truth, lack of trust, expectations that stifle and smother, lack of respect, entitlement, numbing feelings, broken promises.
Sometimes the relationship with peers or other adults is a struggle. This can look like: poor friend choices, bullying, lack of friends, peer pressure (drugs, juuling, drinking), unhealthy relationships, giving oneself up to belong or fit in, breaking/disregard for rules, unwillingness to give effort.
In each of these scenarios, I believe the way to finding happiness and peace again is working together with kids and families in order to bridge the gaps that have been created. My customized, private programs are the place where this work begins!
TLC4KIDS GROUP WORK
interactive groups & workshops for kids
Being in relation with others is one of the most challenging things we do as humans. We each look at the world through our own lens, which is based on our experiences, the things we’ve been taught and our unique takeaways from each of those. Children very quickly learn unhealthy ways to deal with their own insecurities and judgments of themselves and often project this onto others. This is at the root of most bullying I believe. It takes a lot of life lessons to begin to realize how our reality is formed by our inner thoughts. How we can choose to look at situations and don’t need to give our power to others. That the more we love ourselves and treat ourselves with kindness, the more that is mirrored to us through others’ behavior.
Where do kids learn these skills today?

TLC4KIDS LIFE COACHING
PRivate or Group Coaching for anyone who works with children
Perfect for Teachers, Daycare Providers, Special Education Aides, & Home School Parents
Parenting is the toughest job on the planet, I believe. But teaching might be pretty close! And for those special people who have their own children at home, plus a bonus 10-30 other children during the school year, you deserve all the love and support possible. Unfortunately in our society as it currently is, you don’t get enough of either. Sure you may have supportive co-workers or a boss who gets it, but I believe there is more that can help you transform from a run-ragged teacher to someone who thrives doing what s/he loves!
When doing what you love becomes less patience, less time with your own family, fewer smiles, lack of joy, less energy and the dread of another day, there is another way!! I believe just as kids are disempowered, I believe too often teachers feel disempowered. Too often those who have the biggest hearts, put their own needs at the bottom of the barrel ~ if in the barrel at all! Gifting yourself customized life coaching can help you get back to BEing the best version of yourself, someone who can give from a full cup because you know how amazing you are and live from that place!
If you, your team, your grade level or your school’s staff are looking for ways to get back to living your passion with a full heart, reach out to learn ways we can work to make that happen!
