What qualifications does Kristin have to be a parenting coach?

My main qualification is experience, years of it. I am the oldest of 11 children and the mother of 5 kids of my own, the youngest of which is a teenager.

I have served in the community with children and parents in many capacities including being a trained family mentor for Lutheran Social Services. I also have a degree in Elementary Education.

I have taught every elementary age group in public school, the primary grades in private school, and high school grades in seminary. I have taught music to infants through adults.


Why should I choose to hire a parent coach?

Well, everyone has their own reason for hiring me as their coach.

  • Maybe you are tired of your kids not listening to you.
  • Maybe you don't like waking up in the morning because your parenting responsibilities are so overwhelming.
  • Maybe you feel like your kids don't like you and you want to improve your relationship with them.
  • Maybe your teenagers don't communicate very much with you. You want to feel closer to your kids.
  • Maybe you are really worried about one of your kids and need real answers on what to do.
  • Maybe you are frustrated in your marriage or other family matters and you want an unbiased kind (but honest) person to bounce ideas off of.

No matter your reason, you don't have anything to loose by calling me up and talking to me for a few minutes to see if my services are a good fit for you. I really want to meet you and, if I can, I want to help you.


Why should I NOT call Kristin?

If you have everything figured out and you don't want your relationships with your kids to improve, then DON'T CALL Kristin! :) Instead, you should write a book, because it sounds like you have some answers for me!
