Getting to the heart of the matter.
“Finding Melanie was a huge relief, finally someone who understood the struggle of supporting a teen through anxiety and depression.”
“Melanie helped me unpack and gain a better understanding of my daughter’s anxiety. I now feel I have many strategies and tools to use to help my daughter through this difficult time in her life, we no longer feel so helpless or at the mercy of the mental health system.”
“Just wanted to drop you a line as we had a huge success with P. this morning using some techniques from your coaching. There was a complete change in her disposition and alongside the nervousness, she was able to feel excitement before we arrived. I had some tears of happiness and pride which is such a contrast to the way I often feel going through these things.”

I was devastated. I felt so guilty for not being the parent she needed me to be.
These heart wrenching emotions inspired me to learn how to be the parent she needed and support her through it.
What if we, as parents, aren’t meant to have a say? Apart from safety boundaries, the rest is not ours to control.
Your family contract can look as formal or informal as you choose. The most effective ones are often scrawled out on the back of a paper bag – because that was handy when the perfect contract-making opportunity naturally occurred.
We still continue to have rich, robust discussions that are meaningful and useful. Our family values contribute to my being able to parent them as they grow.
