Ladies! I am beyond excited to announce a new parenting and self-care retreat for women raising kids with ADHD and/or “high-functioning” autism: Purposeful Parent Bootcamp. {Squee!} Sorry Dads, this is only for the mamas.


Here’s what you can expect when you attend the Purposeful Parent Bootcamp. I’m still working on the exact dates and location, but it will be in 2018 at a vacation home in either the mountains or at the beach in North Carolina. Make sure you sign up at the end if you want to be on the list to receive details when available and have first opportunity to grab one of the few spots.

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”

What if you could spend a long weekend relaxing… yet emerge recharged, inspired, and empowered to create a more patient, calm, peaceful, cooperative, purposeful, and joyful parenthood for yourself?


Sounds too good to be true, but it’s totally possible! That’s exactly what you’ll achieve at the Purposeful Parent Bootcamp — respite and recalibration.

the experience

The Purposeful Parent Bootcamp is a moms-only, intensive parenting retreat. It’s limited to 5-7 moms, ensuring that you each receive ample attention from me. We’ll gather for 4-days/3-nights at a comfortable, relaxing vacation home in North Carolina. Our time together will include self-care activities, community with other moms in your tribe, and more than 10 hours of intensive personal and parent coaching.

the outcome

Here’s what you’ll accomplish during the Purposeful Parent Bootcamp:

  • Face what’s holding you back to discover and define your authentic, attainable parenting  vision

  • Troubleshoot challenging behavior and brainstorm possible solutions
  • A powerful, effective mindset for raising a child with ADHD and/or “high-functioning” autism
