"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
-Viktor E. Frankl
What matters most is our loving, compassionate PRESENCE, here and now.
Diversity, Inclusivity, & Intersectionality
In our wonderfully diverse world, intersectionality (the interconnected nature of social categories such as race, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc.) is an essential consideration during coaching sessions. I deeply value diversity, inclusivity, and social justice. I vow to create an open, honest, just, inclusive environment during all of my coaching sessions and to continue educating myself in these areas. LGBTQIA individuals and BIPOC individuals are SAFE and CELEBRATED here.
All services are either in person in Westminster, MD or via Telehealth (over Zoom)
Family, Parent, Couples, and Individual Coaching
I have 20 years of experience working with children and families as a teacher, tutor, behavior consultant, counselor, and parent. I have helped hundreds of families struggling with a wide variety of academic, emotional, and behavioral challenges including mental health diagnoses. I have navigated hundreds of 504 Plans and IEPs over the past 16 years as a teacher, behavior consultant, and counselor. I can support you in reading, analyzing, responding to, and/or meeting with school staff regarding a 504 Plan or an IEP.

Small Group Coaching
(Maximum of 7 participants/group, Minimum of 3 participants/group)
Some folks prefer small group coaching with fellow parents who have similar challenges and concerns. At $50 per session, small group coaching is also less expensive per session than family, couples, and individual coaching.
I currently have waiting lists for all of my daytime groups. If you are interested in joining a group, email me at
Carrie@MindfulFamilyMentor.com to get on the waiting list and let me know your top 5 weekly timeslot preferences. Once there are at least 3 people on a waiting list with the same timeslot preference I will create a new group!
Each Coaching Course includes course materials for every session (printed by client or printed by coach and mailed to client if requested at least 2 weeks ahead of time), free of charge! Please contact me at Carrie@MindfulFamilyMentor.com if you are interested!
Purejoy Parenting 8-week Intensive Course
8 sessions working with one or both parents
The ADHD Solution Deck was developed by Dr. Sharon Saline, PsyD, a clinical psychologist and author of the award-winning book, “What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids for Success in School and Life”. I used both resources in developing these collaborative activities for families to work through together in order to process an ADHD diagnosis and find solutions to common challenges that ADHD presents within families. It is my hope that collaboratively guiding parents through the ADHD Solution Deck and the accompanying activities designed for children ages 8-18 will help you and your family find the solutions and strategies you’ve been seeking.

"You’ve tried all the theories, heard from the experts and read all the books but, no matter how much you work at being a conscious parent, you feel like you’re failing.
There’s another way. You can move from the constant struggle of trying to control your child’s behavior, to a more connected, loving relationship and a calmer home.
Parenting Paused is an 8-week parenting course that will get you where you want to be. You’ll learn to release control and create an emotionally safe home where everyone will feel seen, heard, cared for, and connected — including YOU.
In this course you’ll discover and learn how to apply the foundations of Purejoy Parenting, including the transformational SacredSeat and SafeSeat practices."

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Children Course
8 sessions of individual coaching for children ages 8-18 struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post traumatic stress syndrome, emotional reactivity, and/or negative thought patterns.
The general idea of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected. This interconnected cycle usually starts with our thoughts, which then impact our feelings, which then impact our behaviors. Often our behaviors reinforce our thoughts. Each of us can choose to make this a positive cycle, or we can choose to allow it to be a negative cycle. This is a universal human challenge because our brains are programmed to keep us safe from harm which often causes our brains to default to negative. Negative thoughts often trigger negative emotions and behaviors. When we pause to process our thoughts, we may notice some patterns in the way we think. Noticing these patterns can help us change the way that we react to certain situations. These Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Courses will support you in doing just that.
