Meet Julie

Hi, I’m Julie and I’m a parent coach and educator with over 30 years’ experience working with children and parents. I help people like you who have toddlers, teens, and everything in-between.

You want the world for your children, but you’re at a loss as to how to handle their challenging behavior.  Whether it’s defiance, aggression, or multiple meltdowns in a day, the underlying issues that cause those behaviors usually don’t go away on their own. 

I’ll teach you how to use the tools that will turn your child’s behavior around and develop the confidence you need to make parenting more enjoyable and less stressful.

I came to this work having been in the field of education for almost 20 years as a teacher, trainer, and educational researcher, and I have a master’s degree in education, specializing in social and emotional learning.

I use a positive parenting approach, based on the tools of Hand in Hand Parenting which is an attachment-based, trauma-informed parenting program. I help parents use a set of concrete tools to foster strong connections with their children while managing high emotions and challenging behaviors.

When my son was born and my stepdaughter was five at the time, the Hand in Hand Parenting tools taught me how to navigate the new relationships in our blended family and gave me the strategies and support to connect with my children through all of their feelings—the laughter, the tears, the tantrums…

The myth that a parent ought to be able to handle this enormous job alone creates big challenges that often parents feel ashamed to talk about, increasing their sense of isolation and overwhelm. Every parent deserves support. Nobody should have to figure it out alone. I’m here to help you develop the kind of relationship with your child that you’ve always wanted.
