WELCOME TO PASSIONATE PARENT COACHING

Do you want support from someone who “gets it?” I, myself manage ADHD, and understand firsthand what it is like to parent children who have it too. Newsflash: we all manifest the condition differently. Because of these differences, it may be difficult to manage everyone’s special needs, including your own. If frustration, overwhelm, shame, or guilt are the reason you are looking for support, you are not alone. These feelings often stem from the effort you have put into changing your children’s behaviors. If punishments are not producing the results you want, you have likely realized, we cannot punish our children into obedience. Instead, we need to find an alternative route to take when we hit a roadblock. Having ADHD is not a life sentence, but it does require a plan to be successfully managed.

Curious about what types of situations people have sought support for? Many parents struggle with their ADHD children’s aggression and defiance. Others do not know how to handle the emotional outbursts and hypersensitivity that most ADHDers deal with. Some common challenges revolve around sibling rivalry, adherence to boundaries, lack of respect, inadequate communication, or anxiety & depression. Whether it is how to handle tantrums from your toddler, emotional dysregulation from your elementary aged children, or technology boundaries for your older kids, I can offer tools, and teach you new ways of interacting with your children, to create more cooperation and less stress in your home.

TESTIMONIALS

We found Tami when our seven-year-old’s big emotions got too big and volatile for us to handle. She immediately put us at ease with her warmth, but also let us know there would be hard work ahead. Through the months that we worked together she prodded and challenged, but also knew when to let up, share her own experiences, laugh and empathize. We would heartily recommend Tami to anyone who wants to become more self-aware and empathetic — to be a better parent, but also a better human.

This program has been amazing for my family! My daughter and I have struggled for years (she’s 20 now) and after the coaching I am better able to talk and not be triggered by her. We had an amazing break through in our relationship and have not argued for the last 2 1/2 months. We have real conversations for the first time in a very long time. This program also has helped with my relationship with my boyfriend as well as my 3 year old grandson. I feel so blessed! Tami was able to guide me through all the steps even when I really didn’t want to or know how to. She is very good at asking the right questions!

I highly recommend taking this parent coaching program with Tami. In each session I felt understood and loved, never judged. She provides a truly safe space to share your thoughts and feelings, a difficult thing at times for many parents who are struggling and feeling discouraged or embarrassed by their own behaviors. The program is both energizing and challenging, with a wealth of resources to return to anytime you need a reminder or extra support. Thank you, Tami, for bringing this program to parents!

We are parents of two kids, a 9-year-old and a 7-year-old. We reached out to Tami when our 9-year-old son started having huge emotional outbursts and other concerning behaviors. My husband and I went through the program and learned so much about ourselves and our children. We learned how to connect with them and build their self-esteem. We learned how to respond better to emotional outbursts and to help guide our children to self-regulate. Even after the program, we continued have appointments with Tami so we could continue to practice what we learned from the Jai Institute and continue our growth as parents. Tami has helped us learn about our triggers and how we respond to certain situations can impact our children. She provides support and encouragement, while also challenging us to dig deeper into certain feelings or reactions that we may have had. She also provides concrete ideas on what to do to improve a situation or how to respond better the next time around. We are so grateful for Tami. We wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to have a stronger connection with their children.

As the parents of seven children, and with four of them already adults, we wouldn’t have guessed that we would find ourselves working with a parenting coach at this stage in our lives. However, we’re so grateful this opportunity to work with Tami presented itself! It has made a real difference in our family. Despite having some apprehension, Tami put us both at ease with her kind, warm and non-judgmental approach. She created a space where we both could be heard and helped us recognize and work through some of the stumbling blocks in each of our attitudes and approaches. The Jai Institute curriculum that we studied was very beneficial and taught clear principles to improve relationships. However, what really made the difference for us was our weekly sessions with Tami where she helped us navigate some of our family dynamics using those principles. I highly recommend Tami as an excellent coach, and can happily report that it’s never too late to be a better parent!
