HElp for Parents

  with Kristan


Got Kids?


  1. Things not working?

  2. Tried everything you can think of?

  3. Running out of patience with your kids?


If you are experiencing upset and angst with your kids, consider a private session with customized solutions designed especially for YOU!

I believe you are the expert on your child because no one knows your child better than you do.  But I am an expert at providing insight, a fresh perspective, or a new solution that you had not previously thought or tried yet.

My approach offers practical answers to many day-to-day frustrations that are only a telephone call or email away. I emphasizes a positive, respectful style of raising children that encourages sharing control, giving choices, and using a style of heart felt empathy that makes natural and logical consequences both effective and non-punitive.

Sometimes just one or two visits is all that is needed to address the issues. Other times ongoing sessions are important to delve into parent-child issues of a more chronic or complex nature.

The first session defines the problem and offers a menu of suggestions, second session is a follow up on the implementation or problems using the suggestions, and any future sessions are designed to support making the plan and successful solutions a habit.

Give your children the kind of confidence and capability that will prepare them for their future.To set up a private consultation with Kristan, contact or call 530-879-9126.
