The Relationship Transformation System Will:

  • Teach Your Child Tools to reduce negative behaviors of acting out or shutting down, by teaching your child strategies to be successful at managing their behaviors and communicating their needs in the classroom, at home, and with their peers.
  • Use positive ways to manage their feelings (such as worry, anxiety, anger, grief), so your child copes with stress and feels more self-confident and happier.
  • Provide you with parental support and specific tools to help you best support your child to create long-term changes. You’ll get clear, concise, strategies to help your child change their behaviors so you are not responding from a reactive or passive position, but rather from a place of parenting power.
  • This comprehensive 2-phase program is designed to help children and parents manage behaviors and emotions with therapy, creative problem solving strategies, and parent coaching tools.

The Relationship Transformation System Includes:

Phase I: Create and Connect (3 months*):

  • Twelve-45 minute counseling sessions (four sessions per month)
  • Four-45 minute parent support/therapeutic sessions with specific strategies to help support you and your loved ones on your journey. You’ll get clear, concise feedback to help you stay accountable and move forward (sessions will occur during weeks 2, 5, 8, & 11).
  • Contact with mental health professionals, school personnel, etc. to facilitate positive change when necessary.

BONUS – Weekly email support & accountability check-ins (initiated by the client)

These weekly emails will keep you focused as you move through the process of transforming your relationships. My clients have found this check-in to be invaluable in helping them to remain consistent and focused during this process.

*This phase typically takes 3 months but can be extended if deemed necessary.

During this Initial Phase we will work together to:

  • Connect and build a relationship so you and your child are invested and committed to making changes that will create better communication and more peace in your household.
  • Create specific individualized strategies that you, your spouse, and your child are all willing to use to help change how you communicate. You’ll be guided to find common ground you can agree upon, where you all agree how to respond when problems occur. This makes disagreements and requests so much easier, because everyone is in agreement on how to create a more peaceful, acceptable, and responsible home.
  • Learn how to consistently respond to problems, and how to “head problems off at the pass”, so your child knows the rules and respects your boundaries. When arguments arise, instead of marathon tantrums and day long sulking, you and your child will have the tools to respectfully and quickly resolve the problems. Often when changes are introduced a family member will be resistant and test the new boundaries and expectations. You’ll learn how to stay in your power as a parent and remain calm and in control, no matter the behavior you are encountering.
  • Create consequences for inappropriate behaviors, as well as learning when to be flexible as a parent. Some issues shouldn’t be compromised, and you’ll learn how to step into your power as a parent with these issues. Some problems can be solved with compromise. As a parent you’ll learn how to set your child up for success by learning how to communicate what you want in kid’s language.
  • Accept responsibility for one’s actions, whether it’s your child, yourself, or your spouse’s behaviors. You will be shown how to encourage responsibility in your child with clear communication. In addition, you’ll learn how to model this behavior for your child, so they follow your lead and become more responsible for their choices. When times get tough, as they always do, your child and your family will have the tools to get through it more easily.
  • Learn how to communicate with “feeling words” rather than negative comments, blaming, shaming, arguing and yelling. You’ll be shown how to shift your communication patterns from reactivity and negativity to deeply listening to and connecting with your child. You will also be able to clearly state what you need in a way that can be heard by your child. Your child will learn how to state their feelings and wants, so they don’t resort to tantrums, fighting, and hitting. This will change how you and your child communicate!
  • Welcome in more joy, fun, happiness and playfulness into your home! When you’ve learned how to let go of behaviors that have put the house on edge, then there is such a sense of release! Instead of spending your days being a referee between fighting kids and feeling like you are on police duty nagging and breaking up arguing children, you’ve created more peace in your home. Some of my clients say they feel like a normal family; that problems come up, but they know how to handle it. Now there is more time to welcome in fun, and play into your home and be a part of the process in finding ways that family members can be connected and enjoy time together.

Phase II: Maintenance (2 months*)

Now that you have learned the tools and strategies and begun to establish a new way of communicating (and there is more peace in your home) it’s imperative that your family continue to practice what you all have learned. It’s essential during this period to be committed to the changes you’ve made as a family. During this maintenance phase you and your child will continue to receive support and feedback, and have a safe place to address problems and make changes, to ensure that these changes are life-long.


  • Four-45 minute counseling sessions (sessions will occur bi-monthly-two sessions per month)
  • Two-45 minute parent support/therapeutic sessions with specific strategies to continue to support you and your loved ones as you fulfill your goals (sessions will occur during weeks 3 & 6).
  • Continued contact with outside professionals if needed.

BONUS-Weekly email support & accountability check-ins (initiated by the client)

These weekly emails will keep you focused as you move through the process of transforming your relationships. My clients have found this check-in to be invaluable in helping them to remain consistent and focused during this process.

*This phase typically takes 2 months but can be extended if deemed necessary.

During this Maintenance Phase we will work together to:

  • Continue your commitment to the changes, transformations and celebrations of the work you have done. You’ll learn how to establish your own household system to communicate and manage problems as they arise. You’ll create a way to handle problems as a family in the present moment, as well as for the future.
  • Adjust and adapt to the changes your child and family has made. Over the months, you may see you child or partner slipping back into old behaviors and patterns, this phase will help you voice your concerns and resolve problems, before they go back to the way it was.
  • Create life-long skills to help your child be successful. Every parent wants their child to learn how to feel more confident and happier, yet it takes proactive behaviors to learn how to ask for what you want, manage compromises and disappointment, and learn how to be responsible. To be honest, there are not many places these days a child can practice these behaviors (without being picked on). During this maintenance period your child will have the opportunity to practice these tools and strategies, and as a result it will become part of who they are and how they respond to a situation. Essentially, you are empowering your child with tools to manage their behaviors and wants, and communicate their feelings for life- imagine how different your life would be if you had learned these tools as a child?
