Praise for Hacking School Culture: Designing Compassionate Classrooms
As a Positive Psychology Coach and Parent Educator, I offer a strengths-based approach to navigating the challenges of raising your children and teens to flourish, and improving your overall happiness and well-being. My approach integrates a variety of evidence based principles and practices from the science of happiness and success, the wisdom traditions, and my own experience as a “parent with perspective.” I look forward to connecting with you to support you in learning new parenting skills, building upon what’s working, developing self-compassion and expanding your joy.
Positive psychology coaching for those who are seeking to pursue goals for positive change in their lives, relationships, or work. I have a particular expertise in parenting and happiness coaching.
I work with individuals, couples, families or groups, in-person and/or via video chat. I also consult with educators seeking to create and sustain compassionate, strengths-based classrooms.
I gather resources and recommend other trusted practitioners in your community to help support your plan for positive change.
