Does This Sound Like You?

Are you a hardworking parent who only wants the best for your child but you feel frustrated with navigating complex education systems while watching your child fall through the cracks, and are not quite sure who to trust or where to start to get the help your child deserves? I know how that feels because I have been where you are. In fact, I am still working hard to ensure the best for my children.

Having nearly 20 years of experience working in education and with the mental health needs of children, I have learned quite a bit along the way, and I desire to share my knowledge with you. There are conditions…

  • if you are a hardworking and loving parent who will do what it takes to position your child for success…
  • if you want to know exactly how to ask schools for the help you want for your child…
  • and especially, if you have a strong desire to want something different and are willing to take action before and when a problem arises in your child's life…

…then you have arrived at the perfect place where you will be supported and guided along your parenting journey.

It's time to stop watching your child just survive and instead begin to thrive! Get access to my EmPOWERhouse Academy so that you can be more intentional about parenting your child into their destiny.

My Values & Beliefs

Parents and parent-figures are a child's most valuable asset.

I believe that parents and parent-figures play a critical role in a child's development. Parents are the first teachers and are crucial to a child's growth, development, and resiliency. Parents and caregivers who continue to develop their own parenting skills are more likely to have children who do well in life – mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Learning is for everyone.

I believe that every child can learn, as well as adults, too. Learning is an invaluable opportunity to connect with the world through discovery and imagination. Once learning takes place, it fosters perspective expansion while allowing us to develop new skills for navigating the world in which we live. Learning is not just for children but for everyone!

The Growth Mindset is the best mindset.

I believe in the growth mindset where we encourage the idea of learning from our mistakes while understanding that no one is perfect. Of course, we shouldn't expect them to be. The growth mindset individual understands that hard work and dedication is what makes you successful and merely seeing yourself as “smart” limits the mind's potential to learn more. Having a growth mindset will help to establish resiliency and an openness to new concepts and ideas. Now, that's real growth!

The Importance of Family

For me, family is everything! I enjoy every moment and milestone as I watch my four children grow up to be wonderful human beings. Each child is very unique in their own special way, and it is my job and my husband's job as parents to foster a nurturing and loving environment that empowers each of them to focus on their individual strengths. No two children are alike, and we don't expect them to be.

There is no manual or guide that can ever tell you how to navigate the ups and downs or ebbs and flows of raising a family, but there is a collective of information that can be synthesized in order to help parents and caregivers do the best that they can, and for us, it is definitely coupled with prayer.

I started Stronger Minds, Stronger Youth because I have a passion for helping parents navigate the nuances of raising successful children, and I do this by sharing my knowledge and expertise about parenting, education, and mental wellness in order to foster a stronger community for future generations to come.

You don't have to be on this parenting journey alone. All you need is a trusted guide. Get access to The EmPOWERhouse Academy to start supporting your child in achieving highly successful outcomes!
