Julie is a highly engaged parenting expert specializing in advising parents of toddlers through teens. With over 20 years experience, she transforms exhausted, worried, frustrated parents who feel like they nag, argue, or give in into family leaders who communicate in safe, respectful ways that build stronger, long-lasting connections with their kids even if they feel like that’s not possible. As a mom, she’s been right where you are now.
Julie's expertise in parenting makes her an invaluable member of our team. She will be working with our clients to help them overcome common parenting challenges such as overwhelm, kids not listening, daily arguments, screen-time battles, disagreements with the other parent, and sounding like the parent you swore you’d never be!
