What is your favorite family strengths memory? I had an 'aha' moment when I realized my brother was motivated by the competition strength. This insight has led me to a much greater understanding. And I will never forget learning that five out of the six family members my husband grew up with have WOO! There is never a dull moment with them.

Why Strengths Coaching with Families? My bachelor's degree is in Family Science & Human Development. One of the best gifts we can give our family is personally investing in them as individuals and affirming their best qualities.Strengths Coaching is a great way to build a healthy family unit. It's so rewarding to see how strengths transforms and deepens family relationships -- not only as a family unit, but a better understanding among siblings and family dynamics.

What is your favorite parenting strengths memory?

I had an 'aha' moment when I realized I was missing several hints as to what my kids’ Strengths were outside of sports and the performing arts. This awareness led to a much better understanding of how I could improve as a parent.  They were more successful and happier, and I was more confident and relaxed. 


Why Strengths Coaching for Parents?

As a parent of three grown children, I have many years of parenting experience. No matter the age, we never stop being a parent – even while we are at work.  One of the best gifts we can give ourselves and our children is to invest in this important life-long relationship. Coaching is a great way to build a healthy family unit. It's so rewarding to see how strengths can put us a positive path forward.

"I felt that I was continually requiring self-talk to not be critical. Going through strengths with my family has helped me to value my strengths and others and appreciate our differences and utilize our differences." - Mom

"After doing strengths with my family I realized I can connect better with them and feel more comfortable about new situations and solving problems. I feel more positive and not discouraged about my weaknesses." - Dad 

"Before strengths, I felt like I was different than everyone else and I thought that was a bad thing." - High School Son

"Sometimes I feel frustrated when trying to explain where I am coming from to my friends and family. After seeing my strengths and learning more about them, especially restorative, in a session with my family, I feel more connected to them." - College Student Daughter


“I cannot say enough about this incredible experience; it was by far one of the best two-hour investments we have ever made together as a family. My goal was simple – I wanted to empower our young adult children with the tools, insight and language of ‘Strengths’ they could use on resumes and in job interviews as they explored career opportunities. I had no idea how impactful it would be. It has bolstered their confidence and brought us closer with a deeper appreciation and understanding of the very best we have to give each other.”  – Mom

“I wasn't sure about this at first, but I’m grateful I was lol ‘forced’ into it. Knowing my Strengths has been transformational and affirming in how to lead.  ”  – College Student Son

"Our family loved our Strengths Retreat. It was a great experience to discover our own strengths, learn more about them and understand ways to enhance those natural abilities into true assets. It also giving us a chance to learn about each other. I loved the conversation before, during and after and I hope to continue the conversation to help each other get stronger and fine-tune our strengths." - Tara Dimick, Mom
