In-Home Coaching
Although The Nurtured Heart Approach is very easy to learn and very effective, in my experience it is also quite challenging to fully implement when a parent is first learning it. I am happy to announce that in-home coaching is available to help parents implement The Nurtured Heart Approach to it’s fullest effectiveness! We can schedule in-home sessions for any time of the day. I suggest we choose the most challenging times (homework, bedtime, meal time, morning routine, transitions…) so I can personally coach you through the rough spots as challenging situations unfold. In-home coaching can help you take full advantage of the opportunities that present themselves to Nurture your child or teen toward making fabulous choices and reaching their full potential.

E-Mail Coaching for Busy Parents
Having a challenging child (or two) is difficult, but with today’s extremely busy schedules for parents and children it can be almost impossible to find time to work with a professional to help make changes that you would like to make. A solution to this time-crunch problem is e-mail coaching! You e-mail me at your convenience with the situations you are encountering and we converse via e-mail to help you make the changes you wish to see in your child or family. You can send e-mails at any time of the day or night. My usual response time is no more than 24 hours (often less) with an outside time frame of 48 hours. Please e-mail me for further information! I look forward to hearing from you.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
abraham lincoln
A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.
abraham lincoln
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
abraham lincoln
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
abraham lincoln
Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.
abraham lincoln
I do the very best I can, I mean to keep going. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won't matter. If I'm wrong, ten angels swearing I was right won't make a difference.
abraham lincoln
Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
