Parenting is a significant life task for which we have no formal training. An undercurrent of unprocessed childhood experiences interferes with our ability to parent from a conscious state.
My first awareness of being an unconscious mother came when I would yell at my children about cleaning their rooms or picking up their toys. They would look back at me with fear in their eyes. This broke my heart. As I pulled back the curtain of my childhood, I had issues keeping my room clean. My parents described my space as a pig pen. As a human child, I internalized their words and felt like a bad person.
I caught the recycling of unprocessed hurt and knew I needed support in changing this pattern with my children. I was defaulting to my past.

Coaching provides support for seeing how one's past colors the present circumstances. It is an ongoing process of awareness of the unconscious patterns that drive our behavior. Using techniques to intervene, process and create new ways of being with our meaningful relationships empowers us to build relationships that allow for open communication and deep intimacy.
I am passionate about coaching parents to a fuller expression of themselves so they have the confidence to be the parents they wish they had. Conscious parenting and co-parenting invest in children and change families' futures—a tangible form of wealth for future generations.
My three children benefit from my intentional actions in being responsible for my healing. My daughter Faith and I have an extraordinary relationship built on direct communication, honesty, and gratitude for the privilege of learning to love as we "grow up" together. Conscious relationships are built.
Faith's coaching practice is a tangible result of the investment in relationships. Her commitment to rigorous internal development gives her energy and creativity to help her clients develop personal agency and confidence in navigating the humanness of life.
