I leverage decades of experience working with individual clients and facilitating workshops to give groups the emotional validation, "Aha!" moments and practical solutions they need to solve some of their most frustrating daily problems.

 


Raising a Human, Being a Human

A revolutionary approach to organizing your time as a parent

For Wellness & Diversity Programs, Women in Leadership Events, Parent, School and Community Groups.

Parenting is the biggest, most challenging and ambiguous job in the world, and yet, one that has always come without a job description. As a result, parents often feel stretched thin, insecure and guilty that whatever they are focusing on, they’re neglecting something else.

In this insightful and delightful presentation, Julie throws parents a lifeline, offering practical strategies for juggling different priorities in a way that is liberating, doable and sustainable.

Based on 30 years of coaching parents around the globe, and extensive research into 70 years of human development science, this presentation solves the universal problem of how to truly be there for your kids, while still taking care of yourself…along with all your responsibilities as a grown up.

For parents with kids at every age and stage (as well as aunts, uncles, grandparents, caretakers, and managers) this talk, based on Julie’s book TIME TO PARENT, delivers the instructional manual parents have been craving for generations, to gain more time, less guilt and deeper joy in each thing they do.
