Hi, I'm Laine.
I help parents.

I’m a parenting coach with degrees in teaching and education from Brown University. I've been an athlete my whole life, was an elite athlete, and a collegiate coach. I've done a lot of things to be successful in life, but most of those things didn't make me a successful mother.


I had worked for years with difficult kids before I became a mom, so I had a lot of strategies to manage my kids, but I didn't have the right tools to manage myself. I was often triggered by my kids and knew I wanted to be calmer.


I had to learn a new approach that included self-care, mindfulness, self-talk, and mindset. And then I started coaching other parents to do the same. One by one, I've watched countless parents transform from chaos to clarity, bring laughter back to their homes, and confidently raise their kids.

You love your kids and you want the best for them. You wouldn't be here otherwise! You're also struggling and suffering. Please don't go on this way.

Parenting is hard. If you have a difficult child and/or had a difficult childhood yourself, it's EXTRA-HARD.

I'm here for you, parenting warrior ... you want to build a happy home even if you weren't raised in one yourself ... you want to feel confident in your parenting choices ... you want to feel proud of yourself every day ... and you want to raise your kids to be kind, respectful, and confident.


It's your turn now. It's time to build your own new, beautiful family legacy.

You're NOT bad.
If you feel maxed-out, triggered beyond, or doubtful about your parenting ... there's nothing wrong with you. You just need a new path with expert guidance and a supportive tribe to love you along the way. It all starts with a decision to say YES to having a happy family. Once you make this choice, what seems impossible now will begin to take shape immediately.


Join a tribe of parents just like you, in my private Facebook Group where I offer free coaching and community. I'll also give you tips, hacks, and motivation to rock your parenting.
