OUR APPROACH

I'm committed to methods that build on your existing strengths and enhance the relationships in your family. For this reason, my work is deeply rooted in attachment theory* and informed by neuroscience and trauma-informed research, which focuses on child development as the key to understanding and reaching children. Through this developmental approach (instead of a behavioral one), I help families identify and address not only the behavior the child is presenting to the world, but the essential needs and skills underneath. This lens enables the most productive and sustainable growth for both children and parents and centers on the inherent goodness and wholeness of children (and parents) and their capacity to learn and meet (or exceed) expectations when they have the tools and support to do so.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Les G.

"As a parenting coach, Sheena is always in my daughter's corner--not just saying things to please me. I know what she recommends is actually what my child needs which makes me trust her."

Jen K.

"I feel  so supported, seen, and confident working with Sheena for sleep coaching. It's a ton of support for the cost."

Christina G

Sheena is amazing! We had her visit our home to educate us on how to properly install our car seat; she also spent a lot of time teaching us the proper positioning for our little one as he grows in the seat. Her knowledge is invaluable and well worth the fee. I highly recommend her services!

 

"Sheena is knowledgeable, professional and personable. She really knows car seat safety. And her parent coaching is down-to-earth, research-based, and pleasantly dappled with humor and personal experience."
