Meet Your Coach


Hi! I’m Diana

I’m glad you’ve found me! I’m a wife, a mom to 3 awesome (but also very challenging) kids, and I’m a certified professional parent and family coach.  I have a passion for helping hurting families leave the trenches of chaos, reclaim peace, and restore hope.  

Two of my children came to me through adoption and struggle with all sorts of issues including FASD. RAD, ADHD, mood disorder, learning disabilities, and more.  Sometimes they’re my greatest challenge. Always they’re my greatest gifts. Though we’re far from perfect and we still have our less than stellar days, we are lightyears from where we used to be!

That doesn’t mean getting there was easy. It wasn’t! In fact, there was a time when the stress of it all very literally nearly killed me,

That’s why I now do what I do. I’m not okay with parents being thrown into the deep end of the ocean and expected to figure things out on their own while swimming against the sharks. I’m not okay with families imploding because they don’t have the right tool, skills, or help they need to do their jobs. I’m not okay with families being shattered because they tried to do something good.

I’ve been down this road. I know how intense, scary, and utterly exhausting things can be.  I also know it’s impossible to do alone and how important it is to find helpers who actually get it. I know how important it is to be validated. I know how critical it is to have someone in my court who has my back and understands how truly extreme the issues that come with parenting hurt kids can be. I found my way out of toxic stress and despair. I still know the way out. I’d love to help you you find it too! 

Let the fire within you shine brighter than the flames around you!
This journey doesn’t have to destroy you. There is a way out. There is hope!
