Before working with Devon, “I was struggling with my connection with my little boy. I felt my postnatal depression had impacted our bond and I was hoping to reconnect with him on a deeper level.” Through working with Devon, “I realised that myself and my toddler could actually work as a team instead of having to battle each other.”
Devon is a fantastic listener and fully invested in supporting me.
I feel positive and empowered to be the best parent I can be.”
-Denise, mother of two, UK
“My biggest challenge is acknowledging my own emotions and offering connection during tantrums. By working with Devon, I was able to gain techniques on how to connect with myself and my son to prevent tantrums from becoming meltdowns, often times diffusing it all together.
Devon is kind and truly invested in helping. You feel like you have a true resource with vast experience in your corner.
Now, I feel much more empowered to be the kind of mom I feel my son deserves.”
-Mandi, mom of a toddler,
Before working with Devon, “I was getting angry at my son very easily and not having the connection I would like to have. I felt discouraged, overwhelmed and like a “mean mom.”
Devon is great at giving personalized suggestions to help you better your relationship with your child. She has helped me learn to give myself some grace and recognize that I am human and I will still make mistakes. She is very positive and respectful and can be a fresh set of eyes in tough situations.
I feel more motivated and have new tools to improve my parenting. I’m more mindful of the little moments throughout the day when I could build up my son and increase our connection.”
-Brittany, mom of two boys, Atlanta, GA
My work with Devon “gave me more tools to work with when creating a boundary within which my son could express himself. Simply the recognition that my son’s actions aren’t done deliberately or out of disrespect, they’re done out of an inability to communicate, made me less hard on myself.
I now feel more capable, confident and willing to learn more!
Devon listened, pulled from past experience and asked questions to lead me towards some realizations about myself! Working with her was as therapeutic for me as it was instructive!
There’s no shame in utilizing parent coaching. Talking with someone who is educated and skilled in effective parenting & communication w/ toddlers is not always possible, so when you have the opportunity to work with Devon – take it.!”
-Chase, mom of two, Arizona
Before meeting Devon, “I was struggling with implementing positive parenting strategies with two toddlers. It was hard to manage both when they each are experiencing their own big emotions at the same time. I knew I was missing something. I was lacking consistency and patience.
Devon has helped me shift towards being curious and proactive as well as advocating for and validating myself. Now, I feel more confident.
Devon is gentle, supportive and is NOT judgemental at all. She really took the time to listen, to mirror back to make sure she understood what I was trying to express, and to help me get the most out of our time together. “
-Molly, mom of two toddlers, Illinois
Devon, I am so grateful for your time and heart-felt guidance & suggestions. Grace is doing great – and so am I …(Grace) took very well to the questions you suggested I ask her. It was really magnificent to see how empowered and affirmed she felt as a result of my coaching call with you. Again, I am so grateful.
I feel like I have some great new tools to work with – and if EVER I need more help and guidance with parenting, I won’t hesitate to call you.
-Isabelle, parent of two, Oakland CA
“Devon is extremely experienced and truly very gifted with toddlers. I have learned how to speak slowly, calmly and softly to my son, which has really helped him. After working with her, our son is eating on his own and is much calmer.
Devon is the most competent parenting consultant we have worked with, understanding the two chief challenges of toddlers boys: managing frustration in a non-physical way and working on patience when we cannot get things exactly when we want it.
You are fantastic! Thanks again!”
