Connection Collective

Connect.

Understand.

Thrive. 

Imagine a space where your challenges are not only recognized but deeply understood. The Connection Collective is not just a community; it's a haven designed for parents like you, navigating the complexities of raising children with dysregulated behaviors.

 

My friend,

I understand the weight you carry. Parenting a child with a sensitive nervous system, dysregulated behaviors, and major challenges can feel like an isolating journey, filled with moments of overwhelming stress, intense isolation and shame, and an unending fear that you are not enough, not capable, and not safe anywhere you turn.

 

No one truly understands your journey.

‚ěĒ¬†Parenting is already a challenging endeavor, but when your child's behaviors create a sense of isolation, it's a whole different struggle.

‚ěĒ¬†Friends and family¬†can't comprehend the daily battles you face. Sometimes they blame and shame you, as though you are the cause of all the pain.

‚ěĒ¬†The result? A sense of loneliness that can be as emotionally taxing as the challenges themselves.

I help exhausted parents of kids with challenging behaviors to drop demands and create connection so you can embrace your kids (and yourselves!) with radical acceptance.

Enter: The Connection Collective

A Beacon of Understanding and Support

Why Choose the Connection Collective?

 

 Understanding Beyond Words:

Here, you'll find a community that truly¬†gets it. We know¬†your journey. There's no judgment, no stigma‚ÄĒjust genuine understanding from¬†fellow parents who've walked similar paths.

 

Strategies Tailored to Your Reality:

Our approach isn't one-size-fits-all. The strategies shared within our community are practical, realistic, and tailored to the specific challenges you face.

 

A Network of Supportive Parents:

Connect with parents who share similar experiences and understand your struggles. Break free from endless isolation and build connections that will sustain you through the toughest moments.

This Isn't Just a Membership.

It's Your Lifeline.

You're Tired of Smiling Through the Struggle:

You've mastered the art of putting on a brave face, but deep down, you're exhausted from navigating the challenges of dysregulated behaviors, desperately yearning for a community that understands the weariness behind your smile.

 

Every Outing Feels Like a Potential Minefield:

A trip to the grocery store, a visit to a friend's house‚ÄĒit all comes with a sense of trepidation. You're constantly on edge, fearing judgment and misunderstanding. Connection Collective is the sanctuary where you can breathe without judgment, where every parent understands the complexities of your daily outings.

You Secretly Fear You're Not Enough: 

Behind the strong exterior is a silent worry that you're not doing enough or being enough for your child. You crave a community that recognizes your unspoken fears, a place where vulnerability is met with understanding and acceptance.

Some parenting journeys are like taking a walk. Others are like free-climbing a mountain. Mine is the second. 

In 2021, I was diagnosed with PTSD from parenting at the same time as my middle child moved into autistic burnout. Healing from PTSD while parenting a child through burnout is the hardest thing I've ever done, and it also transformed my life. Together, my children and I developed low-demand parenting, a life-giving method in the midst of incredible challenge.

I’m a late diagnosed autistic adult, and very proud of it. I’m terrible at small talk; I never leave a party gracefully. My soul comes alive in deep places, deep in nature, deep in contemplation, deep in conversation. I treasure solitude and feel fully alive while woodworking, reading, walking at the beach, and snuggling my kids.

I began coaching parents in low demand parenting because I love seeing weary parents experience the ease and joy of letting things go. I thrive seeing others come to life.
