I am a certified Mindset & Life Coach for Youth, Early Childhood Educator and Founder of The Owl’s Haven. I offer coaching programs that are deeply rooted in child development, social and emotional learning, and supporting the mental health of children. Decades of research confirm these skills as essential for effective learning, sound decision making, physical and mental health, as well as success in life. The challenge is that we are not just born with these skills. We must develop them in the same way that we learn to play the piano or catch the ball. I am honored to guide young children through positive mindset work. As a mom and teacher, I see the great power in nurturing mindsets especially during the primary school years, when children are forming beliefs about the world around them and experiencing new social settings and challenges for the first time. My mission is to empower children with a positive mindset and the skills to use the power of their minds through the many unique opportunities and challenges they face. These are skills that children can use all throughout school and for the rest of their lives. When they learn how to apply them to their own life experiences at a young age, they can truly create happiness from within, self confidence that sticks, and a fulfilling life.
Thanks for stopping by! Today’s youth grow up in a rapidly changing world with amazing opportunities and unique challenges, daily! Mindset skills help children navigate the unique ups and downs of today with high self-confidence and soaring self-esteem.
At The Owl’s Haven, we STRONGLY believe in the power of stories!
Through a creative coaching process and a proven coaching system that is developmentally appropriate for children, coaching stories are used to teach children powerful mindset skills. A safe environment is provided for children to explore, relate with, and practice the skills that support their ability to thrive through the ups and downs of growing up ~ without getting stuck or giving up on themselves. Through mindset development, the root of thought patterns that hold children back is the central focus.
Children learn how to:
handle the ups and downs of growing up
create happiness and success regardless of their circumstances
think for themselves and make good decisions
go for their dreams and make them happen
so much more.
We have hand selected the WISDOM™ system, a goal-oriented, proven story based coaching model and the power of stories to target transformation in key areas of mindset growth for life! Through stories, children get to hear relatable, real-life problems in a non-threatening way through someone else’s shoes. Children appreciate getting in touch with their thoughts and feelings in this way and open their minds to see some of the most challenging skills in action. Enlightening story talks after the story open the door for children to apply the skills to their own lives under the guidance of a professional coach. Your child’s coach will carefully implement engaging and fun activities to give them a “hands on” experience to really anchor their learning. Parents receive a take-home sheet with resources to carry the conversation on at home with simple, powerful references to the stories that reinforce the skills they are working on outside of coaching sessions.
The Coaching Program and primary tool utilized in all coaching programs offered here at The Owl’s Haven was recently recommended by an Industry Leader, Jack Canfield
Looking in the mirror and not liking what is seen, struggling with friendships or competition, grades, making decisions, and being excluded are just a few issues we all don’t want our children to get stuck with in life. If this describes what your child is going through, please contact us. WISDOM coaching programs work to give children the tools to work through and/or face issues in new, exciting ways with confidence, resilience, and mental well-being, and to make healthy patterns of doing this for a lifetime to come.
