"As a single mother, raising an adolescent,  I live and feel the benefits of Avery’s parenting workshops. I can now stay calm when my son flips his lid, and avoid activating my saboteurs, which eliminates opportunities for emotional escalation and provides my son with better self-regulation models that he might choose to mimic eventually in his life.

" Avery can listen to one's deeper self with immense empathy and compassion. I learned some long-lasting techniques that will continue to help me progress in life on a higher emotional level. Her insights and genuine kindness and concern for success are quite evident. Being coached by Avery went far beyond what I expected. My future is brighter thanks to Avery. She has a gift and immeasurable talent! I highly recommend her as a coach."

Avery Russell : Parent Coach

Avery works with parents to build stronger connections and relationships with their kids who are trying to push them away. Every child has unique struggles and their versions of “ I hate you mom, but you aren’t allowed to abandon me!” This happens at all stages of child development. The pushback is an age-old process they go through as they strive to become independent.


Parents worry about keeping their kids safe from today's challenges they never faced, such as questions around identity, mental health, too much screen time, depression, social media distractions, college prep stress, and will my kid fit in.


Working with Avery, parents begin to understand what triggers their worry, stress, and negative reactions when their kids reject them. They learn how to shift to positive perspectives and solidify strong, lifelong bonds.
