confidence, and joy
Hi! I'm Crystal...
I'm happy you're here.
It's 'brutiful', isn't it? Brutal. Beautiful. At the same time.
We often experience overwhelm, exhaustion, and feelings of inadequacy in parenting. With the many voices of 'experts', competing demands, and not enough hours in the day, we're often left wondering if we're even 'doing it right'.
Yet, in those same moments, it's overwhelmingly beautiful. Right? We have the privilege of seeing the world through the eyes of the next generation. How they once relished in the simplest things in life — like finding more joy in playing with a cardboard box than the toy that came in it. Do you ever wonder what happens to the joy of a child?
My hope for Simply Parent Coaching is to create a safe, judgement-free space for you to no longer worry if you're 'doing it right' so that you can focus that energy into being the parent you hope to be. Through a journey of vulnerability, courage, acceptance, and self-awareness, I invite you to do the work to re-imagine what parenting is to you — absent societal expectations and traditions. We'll partner together as you continue to foster lasting, authentic connections with your children.
Consciously parenting ourselves and our children with connection, grace, and authenticity.
Identifying and acknowledging how our triggers, moods, and mindsets impact our perspectives and actions.
