Life can come at you hard and fast. You know what makes these times easier? Knowing and accepting yourself. The good. The bad. And, the ugly. That kind of self-awareness and the life skills that come along with it require expert guidance. That is where I come in.
Bring me your life challenges and together we will find your brand of courage, develop some skills, take action and produce results. You’ll be in good hands.

Let’s Connect

With life comes struggle, and with struggle comes strength. When you find your strength, you find your courage and when you have courage, you can change. As an accomplished Cognitive Psychologist with years of experience I have helped many individuals, couples, families and organizations solve problems and create positive change.

As a cognitive psychologist and professional speaker for over 20 years, I have worked with hundreds of clients to solve complex life problems and presented to thousands on getting back to the basics of life and happiness. All the work I do has a touch of science and a whole lot of reality. I am committed to reaching results using a no nonsense approach; whether working one-on-one, speaking to a crowd or through my organizational consulting. You’ll be inspired to take action.

I have been to at least four of Dr. Farrell’s parent workshops. Each time I have left the workshop with knowledge and tools I did not have when I arrived- practical tools I can use. These workshops are dynamic, full of important information that I have implemented both professionally as a counselor, and as a parent. I certainly have changed my parenting style for the better. Dr. Farrell is very knowledgeable and brings personal stories and humor into her presentations. I also really like that parents have a lot of opportunity for comments and questions. I like the workshops so much that I scheduled them for my school district.

Boots on the Ground Parenting

What I see in our culture is worrisome. We’ve lost touch with what’s important; connection, conviction and authenticity. It’s time for a shift. As parents, we need to get back to basics by committing to our values, thinking for ourselves, and not taking the age-appropriate struggle out of our children’s lives. There is no one right way to parent; no one right way to grow-up. I can help you develop the tools and techniques that work best for your family. You’ll be empowered to take charge.
