FAMILY MENTORING 

 

Hi! I'm Ash, Paths & Pages Founder, DirectorFamily Mentor

 

I help parents build deeper trust & more meaningful connections with their children...

 

I specialize in kids who don't fit nicely or neatly into society.

 

Change is possible.

Let’s be real: If you knew how to change your family dynamic, you would do it!

Even if you read all the parenting books, follow all the instagram therapists & try all the suggestions… sometimes it takes a personal connection to help you identify triggers, work through options, develop an effective plan & make noticeable changes.

 

So if you’re ready to do the work, want to build strong relationships with your kids & change the vibes in your home, I’m ready to show you how.

 

Get support from someone who’s been there.

I manage up to 12 kids at once, alone in the wilderness, so I know chaos intimately.

 

I deeply understand the frustration, confusion & despair that is caregiving.

 

I also know what works (& what doesn’t) when it comes to helping kids manage big feelings, aggression, anxiety, sibling rivalry & meltdowns.

 

Since 2018, I’ve helped hundreds of children, teens & parents manage stress, improve connection & communication and find positive, respectful solutions to challenges at home.

 

Your child is not the problem.

“Bad behavior” most commonly reflects the disconnect between a child’s actual skills & the expectations/demands we put on them.

 

Challenging kids will always look “bad” if they’re pushed past their capacity to respond.

 

This is especially common in neurodivergent children: born with brains that think, learn & process information differently than others. Like me! :)

 

We should be celebrating these kids for who they are…  not setting unrealistic expectations or devising ways to change them.

 

It’s all about curiosity & understanding.

Sometimes, challenging behavior is the result of a child who isn’t getting their needs met.

 

In fact, most relationship challenges in our lives stem from not feeling completely seen, heard or validated.

 

I specialize in seeing life through your child’s eyes, getting curious about their experience & showing you how to “speak kid” again.

 

This deep connection & understanding allows me to put your child's behavior in context, identify what’s really going on underneath the surface & devise ways for you to more effectively communicate.

Let the ultimate transformation begin:

 

  • Straightforward, realistic & easy-to-implement strategies for your family’s social, emotional & spiritual growth

  • Calm, confident boundaries (without rewards, punishments or threats)

  • Focus on curiosity, connection & respectful communication

  • Encouragement, guidance, accountability & support

  • Careful listening, powerful questions & authentic questions

The most common issues I can help your family with:

  • Big emotions, tantrums & meltdowns

  • Boundary setting & limits

  • Managing anxiety & stress

  • Building self-esteem & autonomy

  • Minimizing sibling rivalry & conflict

  • Navigating friend drama & bullying

  • Discussions about puberty, sex & relationships

  • Surviving screen-time struggles

  • Understanding & addressing neurodivergent behaviors

  • More meaningful & connected family experiences
