Empowerment Starts by Taking the First Step!
What Is a Parent Empowerment Session?
A Parent Empowerment Session is a FREE 60-minute consultation designed to help us get to know each other a bit, take a look at your unique situation, and determine how and if parent coaching can help you calm the chaos, restore order, and find healing for yourself and your family.
Who do I work with?
I specialize in working with mothers of children who struggle with intense emotional and behavior issues associated with complex developmental trauma, Reactive Attachment Disorder, prenatal alcohol exposure (FASD), and/or other forms of mental illness.

“I feel the work I did with Diana was priceless. She was incredibly positive and encouraging, and at the same time she was able to point out the hard things standing in my way that I didn’t want to see. This process has shifted the way I see myself and my children entirely. I had needed to believe that I AM capable and that my children ARE on that path towards a satisfying adulthood. Has it been entirely comfortable to get here, no way. Has it been entirely worth it? The answer I see every day in my children’s eyes and in my own eyes looking in the mirror. Thanks Diana!”
“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 and the best parent you can be.”
Is an Empowerment Session right for me?

Frequently Asked Questions
How do coaching sessions work?
All sessions, including the free Parent Empowerment Session, are held via video conference. That means you can participate from wherever you are. If you’re not a techy person, don’t let that scare you. Video conference is free, easy, and fun to use. It also allows us to feel like we’re sitting in the same room.
As long as you’ve got a device with a camera (phone, tablet, laptop, etc.) and a good WiFi or unlimited data connection, you’re good to go. I’ll walk you through the rest of the details.
What's the catch?
We will spend our session taking a deep-dive look at your situation and discussing how or if parent coaching might be able to help you untangle the mess and leave the trenches of chaos for good. If I feel I can help you and we’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to learn more about my parent coaching programs.
If it turns out what I do isn’t what you’re looking for or this isn’t the right time in your life to make it happen, there will be no obligation to continue.
I want both of us to know right up front that you’re serious about seeking real help, you’re ready to do what it takes to turn things around, you’re committed to the process, and that parent coaching is next right step for you before we move forward with anything. That’s what this session is all about!
Where can I learn more about parent coaching?
If you’d like to know more about how coaching is both similar to and different than therapy, check out this post.
If you’d like to take a simple self-assessment test to determine your readiness for coaching, see this post.
Are there any alternatives to private coaching?
The Academy is a unique membership site dedicated to supporting, educating, and strengthening moms of children who suffer from intense emotional and behavior issues associated with developmental trauma, fetal alcohol exposure and/or other forms of mental illness. It offers a step-by-step guided journey through the process of calming chaos and restoring peace using self-paced courses, targeted application assignments to help you apply what you learn, and an exclusive peer support community.
How many clients do you have?
As a coach, I have a very limited number of one-on-one coaching slots available. I don’t take just anyone, though. I intentionally limit my client load to just a few people at a time so I can be fully present and focused on supporting you in your journey of creating positive change in your family.
Why not give it a try?
You have nothing to lose…but may have everything to gain.
Are you ready?
I understand how scary it is to land on a website like this, feel a surge of hope, and still be terrified to take that next step…even when we know it will be good for us!
I also know that nothing will change if nothing changes. The first step in a new direction is always the scariest one to take. Finding the courage to do it is where the transformation begins, though.
Are you ready to create a different experience for yourself and your family? Are you ready to reclaim peace and restore hope amidst all the demands of parenting a challenging child? Are you ready to break free from the toxic cycles of chaos?
If you are serious about taking charge of your situation, getting out from under the weight of these issues, and are ready to lead the way toward healing for your family then parent coaching or the Parent Transformation Academy might be the right next step for you!
