Now the real journey begins!

You’ve taken the first step toward healing by requesting this quiz. I encourage you take a long, hard look in the mirror and be honest about your answers when you take it.  Hard as it may be, that’s where real healing and change begin. The good news is you’re not alone, you don’t have to do this alone, and there really is a way out of the chaos.

It takes more than wishing and hoping to change your situation.

It requires the right tools, the right information, the right actions, and the right support!

About the Program

This isn’t just another “I’ll sign up now and get around to doing it someday” DIY course. This is a highly interactive parent transformation program for moms who are serious about making positive and lasting change happen for themselves and their family. It’s all about “kickstarting” your journey toward lasting change and healing…both for yourself and for your family!  

This 4-week program broadly covers the first four critical elements of successfully parenting hurt kids. These are foundation pieces on which lasting peace is built. They are also the fastest way to start calming the storm, turn things around, and get everyone moving in the right direction once they are understood and implemented correctly. These particular topics are also the lion’s share of what I call the “Urgent Care” part of my system outlined on my parent coaching page.

How it Works

We cover one predetermined topic each week. I will send you a short training video and worksheet assignment to introduce that week’s topic to you. The video offers a high level overview of the topic along with several tips on how to start implementing it right away. The worksheet will help you process what you learned, apply it to your unique situation, and prepare you for our 1:1 session together.   

Once the training lesson is complete, we will meet via video conference for as 60-minute 1:1 session coaching session. The purpose of this session is to support you, encourage you, and help you gain the tools, skills, and understanding needed to apply this information in your unique family and situation in a way that works for you.

What Topics are Covered?

Safety:  This is #1 most important, non-negotiable rule for parenting tough kids. It is also one of the most frequently overlooked and misunderstood pieces in the whole trauma parenting puzzle.

Caregiver Burnout:  As parents of tough kids, we’re not dealing with ordinary stress and burnout. This lesson looks at some of the unique issues we face as caregivers who are doing our jobs under very challenging circumstances. Understanding this process and how we ended up where we are is a kpe part of being able to reverse it.

Trauma and the Brain: A critical part of understanding our kids is knowing how the human brain is supposed to work and what trauma does to it. Especially when young children are exposed to trauma and/or other substances such as drugs or alcohol, particularly within their first 3 years of life, the impact is staggering. The good news is that proper intervention, time, patience, and persistence can help minimize the long-term effects.

Therapeutic Parenting: This topic has become one of those neat “buzz words” among trauma parents. Many have heard of it, studied it, and are doing their best to do it right…only to find themselves sinking faster than their kids are getting better or that it doesn’t really work for them. Let’s find out why and change it! 

Who is This Program For?

This program is for any mom who is struggling to keep her head above water on this parenting journey and is in need of support. Whether you’re new to all of this or you’re an experienced parent who has read all the books, attended all the conferences, and been doing this for a long time, there will be something in it for you. If you’re serious about making real changes, creating lasting healing and peace for yourself and your family, are ready to try something different, and motivated to look at yourself and find the missing pieces, this program is for you.

If you’re looking for someone to fix your child, a magic bullet that will make everything all better, or are only interested in the latest parenting tips and strategies or finding consequences that work, this probably isn’t the help you’re looking for.

Healing is the best gift you’ll ever give yourself!

Here’s what others are saying…

“Before coaching, I was extremely depressed and very low. Now I can do my work with a clear mind and be reasonably happy.  Coaching has helped me to recognize my worth, why my children and partner act and react the way they do, and that it has nothing to do with me. I have peace again. I have hope again. It’s worth every penny!”  –Treva C.

“Coaching makes me feel like I am empowered with the “tactics” I need to fight off my internal demons. I am able to change negative, harmful thoughts into a positive battle cry of strength.

I would tell anyone who is considering working with Diana the famous Nike slogan “Just do it!”. You will feel a lot better and gain the power to be your best self. It’s not easy, but it’s been worth it.” — Kirsten E. 

“While working with Diana, I loved how she was able to meet me where my parenting was at and tailor our work to the unique needs of my family…. My outlook on parenting through the future and on life overall has shifted drastically. I have found myself and I am able to know some confidence in our future. Like every parent, there are still plenty of hard days that end with the question of whether I made the right choices, there is still the exhaustion sometimes too. What I’ve dropped from my parenting is the questioning of myself about whether I am capable, whether it is possible for me to guide my children to a satisfying adulthood. I don’t miss those questions.

I definitely recommend that a struggling parent or any parent even to engage with Diana through her coaching. Diana is amazing at showing people an entirely different perspective filled with all new options for raising our children to be healthy and happy.” — Carissa M.

Meet Your Coach

I’m Diana. I’m a wife, a mom to 3 awesome (but also very challenging) kids, and I’m a certified professional parent and family coach.  I have a passion for helping hurting families (especially mothers of tough kids) find their way out of darkness and chaos and enjoy a greater sense of connection, peace, and harmony in their lives and in their homes.

Two of my children came to me through adoption and struggle with all sorts of issues including FASD. RAD, ADHD, mood disorder, learning disabilities, and more.  Sometimes they’re my greatest challenge and always my greatest gifts. Though we’re far from perfect and we still have our less than stellar days, I’ve found my way out of the toxic stress and despair that can so easily consume families like mine. I’d love to help you do the same!
