Parenting is hard work

Especially when you don’t like how you are showing up in challenging moments.

No matter how much you know or how hard you try, it feels like you just can’t get it right.

It’s probably a “missed connection”.

Why “Perceptive Parents”?

Perceptive is commonly defined as having keen insight, understanding or intuition. 

When you feel stuck or overwhelmed, you probably aren’t able to act as intuitively as you’d like.

Coaching can bring you the insight you are looking for.

Melissa works with clients in a variety of settings. Find the one that’s right for you.

What Melissa’s clients are saying

We can’t express how much your support and knowledge and caring have meant to our entire family.  We truly feel like we have our own child development expert to turn to when faced with the rocky times in our children’s lives.  I tell my friends all the time-I don’t know how we would have gotten this far without you.

Definitely recommend Melissa! Our family had the opportunity to meet and discuss our goals with Melissa and we were very pleased. We were surprised at how much our children shared in our family session.
