Are you at your wits end trying to parent your kids? Are you struggling with your teen? Your tween? Are your kids oppositional and defiant? Have you run out of ideas in dealing with your kids? Do you find yourself nagging them at every turn? Are you tired of this type of interaction? Do you want to be a different kind of parent?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, let me help. As a Parent Coach, I will partner with you to discover your strengths as a parent and regain a foothold with your kids. I'm offering a Parent Coaching package of up to 5 sessions, with the initial session being a needs and strengths assessment.
Training & Qualifications
First and foremost, I am a proud mom to two awesome kids--an 11 year-old young lady and a 16 year-old young man. I have over 15 years experience as a counselor and family therapist, working at several non-profits. In my years as a counselor and therapist, I was a parent coach and advocate, working with families involved in the justice system, teaching parenting skills, and facilitating groups. I also have a background in microbiology and biotechnology, having done bio-medical research for about 7 years. I earned my Master's degree in Applied Behavioral Science - Systems Counseling from Bastyr University in 2004. Over the years, I have coached dozens of parents in becoming the best parents they can be. I hope to share my coaching skills with the Simbi community.
Availability & Preferences
I can meet on Saturday mornings or afternoons. During the week, I can meet mornings on Mondays and any time Tuesdays. There are some evenings I can meet, especially if my kids are with their dad. Please inquire as my schedule changes week to week. If you are local, I may ask to observe an interaction with your children to gain valuable information about your family dynamics that will serve as a baseline of our coaching session.

About Flor-Mari Crisostomo
I'm a mom to two awesome kids--a 17 year-old young man and a 12 year-old young lady. I love to cook for my family and friends and making them smile. I enjoy planning events and parties--I always fin...d a reason to have a party and just go a little crazy with it. My background is in biotech and counseling. I've been around the block a few times. But now I work in the food industry--more like allied food industry. I think I have the weirdest job out there--I set-up the dining room for a fine dining restaurant in Woodinville. Yup, I take care of the stemware, the tablecloths, and the shiny stuff. And it's actually quite fun because it's like planning a party everyday! I am also working on starting a life coaching program for formerly incarcerated individuals. That's where my former life as a counselor comes in. I do the research and leg work for my project outside of work, when I can focus on what is meaningful to me. I'm interested in prison reform, social justice, equity, and betterment of people's lives in general. And of course raising my two kids--they are super awesome and make me look good! To reach our goal, a straight path we must not follow. ~Yodashow moreOpen to other proposals
