Elizabeth is a school psychologist, behavior specialist, parent educator, and mother of two. Through her personal and professional experience, she has learned that parenting is the hardest and most important thing we will ever do. It takes a physical, mental, and spiritual toll. We choose whether that journey tears us down or lifts us up to become a better version of ourselves. Some days it may do a little of both. When we show up and connect with our children in an authentic way, we are laying the foundation for a lifetime of meaningful connection. Elizabeth works with parents of young children who want to feel more confident in their parenting. She offers individual and group parenting support through virtual and in-person workshops and one on one parent coaching. www.elizabethashleyherman.com
