Sharoya’s style of parent coaching is designed to help parents recapture the joy of parenting by relinquishing the way things used to be when their pre/teens were little & embracing the joys and disappointments that come with raising responsible adults.

“Overwhelm, stress, uncertainty and aggression had become common themes in our home. As a single mom of three, in a foreign country I had reached a point where I felt I could no longer see the woods for the trees. Sharoya, or Miss Sharoya to my kids, impressed me with her warm pragmatism from our very first introductory call. She has a true talent for keeping discussions on point and each session leaves me feeling empowered to move forwards, focusing on concrete objectives and strategies that work for us as a family. I regularly rave about her to my friends, and honestly consider her a major part of my support network.”
