My work with parents has two main focuses – first, as clients in coaching or consulting, who are seeking to improve their own lives, and have that strength benefit their children. Secondly – as a long history of supporting parents in raising their children skillfully through sexual maturity.
As a sexuality educator, I have been meeting with groups of parents, in anticipation of teaching their children, for many years. Interest and demand increased to the point that I was compelled to create a seminar, “Raising Sexually Healthy Children”. This, I have hosted three times, in local community college and health centers in Bellingham, Washington.
Now, I’ve created a special package that gives parents private, personalized support in guiding their kids through sexual maturity well. Please see Raising Sexually Healthy Kids, Family Package.
Before Parent Sex Education Nights, my early work with parents was supporting the intensely personal experience of preparing to welcome a new baby. The transition to new parenthood was my introduction to human service work, as a doula in my twenties. I reveled in supporting both mothers and fathers with presence, planning and resources.
For the past ten years, I have also supported parents in sending their children off to a puberty rite of passage, and celebratory welcoming of the new life phase to come. Take a look at Vanessa’s Story, to see a quick history of my work in rites of passage. In this, many of the same skills and experiences came into play, as these relationships are ever-shifting, even while the love remains the same.
New clients may also consider an 80-minute Happening Right Now Session to focus on one issue, and learn if we are a great fit for working together. I am always happy to start with a Free Call as well.
