SANITY & STRATEGIES for strong-willed kids (1-7).



For me this looked like...

  • getting blown away by how different my daughters could be
  • coming to terms with a temper I didn't know I had
  • not knowing how to get my 2nd to listen to very simple directions without a 0-60 reaction
  • struggling to figure out how to help my husband understand and implement the parenting tools I was learning without feeling like I was nagging
  • Learning the tools I needed to be okay when life was definitely NOT okay

My *special set of skills* are to give you permission to let go of what's holding you back, equip you with tools that work so you're confident + proud of your parenting, WITH support + accountability so you get on the same page!




  • Communication: I ask the right questions, listen fiercely & teach concepts in clear & concise ways that make sense.

  • Positivity: I assume the best in every person & see the good in every situation.

  • Woo: I love the challenge of meeting new people & hearing their stories.

  • Ideation: I’m a creative brainstormer fascinated by fresh ideas & new perspectives.

  • Maximizer: Seeking efficiency, I strive to improve on something good so it reaches it’s full potential.

I think deep conversations are the best way to build new understanding, get on the same page, and make actionable changes for the future. 

While remaining wildly non-judgemental, I am uniquely skilled to help TRANSLATE spouse-to-spouse or kids-to-parents to help everyone feel heard & understood. 

90% of your child's brain is wired by the time they turn 6.  When their core needs are met, they THRIVE.

And a generation of thriving kids could...



Allow me to come alongside you, equip you with the tools you need, and cheer you on as you go!


"Talking to Danielle always felt so reassuring, that I'd be able to go back in the next day feeling like I was doing the best I could do (and that it was enough!) rather than hearing this constant nagging voice in my head saying I was a bad mom or failing my children.""

"If you feel like you’re on the struggle bus, Danielle will make you feel so understood and give you hope that parenting can be different. If you’re hesitant in the investment, parenting should be at the top of the list of investments! We only get one chance to raise our kids!"

Mom of 2

"Danielle provides so many great resources to have and use, but the best thing about her coaching is that she listened to us. She took the problems that we having and immediately was able to help us put plans in place to handle the issues and point us to the direct resources we needed at the very moment we needed them. We now feel like we are able to understand our children in a way we couldn't quite grasp before."

In 2021, Danielle joined Sara Olsher of Mighty + Bright to create Kids' Mental Health at Home, a subscription equipping caregivers to cultivate mental health skills in their elementary-age children.

Danielle would love to join you on your podcast, be a panelist in your summit, or speak at your group!

Nancy D.

Danielle did a great job presenting to our group of young moms. She brings knowledge backed by research as well as practical ideas for parents with young children. Engaging, authentic, and smart!

So glad we invited her to share with our group.

"We recently had Danielle lead a training on Positive Discipline for our staff. The training was packed with useful information that is practical in applying immediately when working with young children. The process of interacting through relationship building and communication using the tools that she shared with our staff was empowering and refreshing. During this challenging time, helping young children feel heard, safe and loved while in our care is a top priority for us.

After the training I heard from several staff members that they would have listened to Danielle for two more hours! What a great expression of appreciation towards a professional, knowledgeable and relatable instructor. We look forward to having Danielle return for more trainings in the future."

Hosts of This Might Get Uncomfortable

“Danielle brought such a depth of heart, vulnerability and practical parenting tips to our podcast. She is a breath of fresh air, getting to the core of real issues regarding family, mental health, work/life balance, personal resilience and allowing ourselves to be perfectly imperfect. Her unique perspectives on the reality of motherhood brought a lot of value and vigor to our podcast and we highly recommend Danielle as a guest!"
