YOU are the reason I’m doing this.
I LOVE helping – It’s WHO I am, more than WHAT I do. But if you don’t know me, here are some of the great things they’ve said about me.
Cris is amazing. She helps you realize you are already a great parent and gives you tools to help with those times when it gets to be too much. One thing I have taken away from Cris is how to handle the 10 stressful minutes in a day and how to make them less stressful. It WILL take longer than 10 minutes to make it through and that is ok, in the end it is less stress for you and for the kids. This is something I work on everyday and it seems that the 10 minutes are not at the same time everyday but applying what Cris has taught me has changed the way I handle it and how my kids react. I cannot thank Cris enough.
Cris is very REAL. She truly understands the trials and tribulations of parenting not just from her education and professional experiences but also from personal experience as a mom raising her own children. Whether you need a little parenting advice or a full blown intervention 😉 , I recommend a consultation with Cris.
A few years ago, I became a mother for the first time to my amazing 9-year-old stepson. It has proven to be an enormous role to fill as my stepson’s biological mother has chosen to not be in his life for the past several years. Combine that early trauma to the trauma of having experienced sexual abuse and add in crippling anxiety as well as ADHD, and you’ve got yourself a child who deeply needed a stepmother who would be a calming, caring addition to the chaos he was feeling. But having no prior parenting experience proved difficult for me to maintain my calmness in what was often a very challenging situation. That’s where Cris came in and really helped me understand why my stepson would exhibit certain behaviors which I previously had no experience in dealing with. The insight she provides as well as the advice on what language to use and actions to take helped not only myself tremendously, but our entire family. In the past, we have struggled with teachers and caregivers who didn’t have the experience or expertise to handle my stepson’s behaviors. When everyone else would be at a loss for how to help him, Cris would know exactly what to do to move forward. She is incredibly knowledgeable and fantastic at what she does! She has a knack for thinking outside the box to challenge societal norms which don’t really serve our children and she helps me to see things in a way that I never would have on my own. She’s also very humble and encouraging, as she often reminds me that there is no such thing as a perfect parent and reflects on her own parenting struggles. She probably doesn’t realize just how much she has contributed to me being “perfect” in my stepson’s eyes though. I can’t recommend her services enough. She truly cares about making a difference and she has made such a difference in our lives!’
Really made me stop and consider that my most important job is that of being a mom. Was given a practical approach to better connecting with each of my children.
