Confident & Connected

Confident and Connected: Raising Your Spirited Child

My 5 year old son, who was the reason I needed help so badly, has improved in every way – and so has my relationship with him!  Now it is my 3 year old daughter who is taking a turn in the drivers seat of difficult behaviors!  These two kiddos both fit the SWC description to a T. Thankfully I’m much better prepared to respond appropriately,  I’m infused with excitement from what progress we’ve made and what a huge difference I’ve seen in their behavior and mine!


During the course I was able to reflect on how my actions contributed to how my children were responding. I looked forward to the Q and A sessions weekly and Angela went above and beyond trying to help with personal obstacles and challenges. I would recommend this course to any parent who is willing to put in effort and work into be the best parent they can be.


I took Angela's 7 week course which was FANTASTIC. Her methods have changed ME and how I choose to see my incredible daughter. Our relationship is getting better, our daughter is growing up learning how to use her skills in positive ways, and our home is becoming a place of peace.

Raising your strong willed child without regrets

I was drowning...and I’m a mental health professional who specializes in children.

10 years ago I had my first child, and I’m going to be honest with you, I thought I had the parenting scene under wraps. I had a bachelor’s degree in Child Psychology, a Master’s in Family Therapy and had a clear picture of how I’d raise my kids for some time. 

What I didn’t know then was that no educational background or professional training could have prepared me to raise the unique child I was given, a determined spirited strong-willed child.

I spent years trying...what I was taught in school (behaviorism), what other’s told me to do (conventional parenting techniques) and everything in between. For years I was stuck in a cycle of frustration and resentment with my small child, and family life felt heavy and stressful. 

One day as I stood outside my daughter’s bedroom door locked into a power struggle and listening to her crying hysterically something in me shifted. I realized I was trying the same things over and over and they weren’t working.

After several years of pouring over my clinical insights, research on human development/neuropsychology, and resources from thought leaders in the positive discipline field, I started to discover the confidence in my parenting, and deep connection with my child, that I had been desperately searching for all along. 

For the past 7 years, I’ve taken the insights I’ve learned and supported hundreds of parents raising spirited, emotional and determined kids though my therapy practice and online coaching.

I wholeheartedly believe that every. single. child. deserves to meet their full potential and every parent deserves to enjoy the beautiful gift that is parenthood. 

Is the program right for you?

It is a good fit if...

  • You have an open mind and are ready to try new things to improve your family life
  • You're done with surface-level approaches that sometimes work in the short term but don't change the foundation or improve relationships.
  • You're ready to commit and put the work into changing from the inside out.
  • You don't have time or energy to dig into dozens of parenting books and academic research on how children learn and grow best.
  • You're ready to start a new chapter of parenting your intense child and let go of negativity and guilt from the past.
  • You're looking for an up to date research-based approach on discipline that doesn't leave an imprint of emotional damage, anxiety, and low self-esteem
