What our clients have said:
Inge’s coaching has helped me totally revolutionize my relationship with my daughter. My newfound inner peace helps prevent her meltdowns and we now enjoy our time together. – S.
Sarah has taught me parenting skills that have completely changed how I interact with my 18-year old daughter. While it’s still a work in progress, our home is much more peaceful these days. – A.
Our kids used to run our household and didn’t do any chores. Inge helped us teach them in a loving and firm way - they now do their chores and are much happier! – H. & R.
I've learned a TON from our few sessions and I'm very grateful to you. I feel like I've made a very important shift in my thinking and have gained confidence to use these new tools and we're getting good results with the kids. -- LG
