I'm Cindy Shuster
PCI® CERTIFIED PARENT COACH AND NURTURED HEART APPROACH® CERTIFIED TRAINER
I've been at this parenting thing for almost 3 decades myself, I know firsthand how HARD it is! That's why I am so passionate about partnering with courageous parents who are ready and willing to "take care of their side of the street" in order to transform their relationships with their children. I help you find that "wise parent" within so that you can begin to confidently navigate the complexities of parenting like a rock star! The work can be challenging, but it is worth it and I will be there every step of the way to support you and cheer you on!
Supporting You Through Challenging Times
Parenting can be an incredible, rewarding journey, but sometimes, it feels like you've tried everything, and the path ahead seems unclear. I've been there myself, facing the same uncertainty when my own son was spiraling, and we had no idea how to make it better.
But I also discovered that there's hope, and you don't have to navigate this challenging time on your own. My own experience led me to the world of residential, therapeutic treatment, where my son's time in a wilderness program became a turning point. It saved his life and our relationship.
I specialize in helping parents just like you find the right placement for their pre-teen, teen, or young adult. It can be an overwhelming process, but with my guidance, you'll have support every step of the way. My mission is to be a source of light, comfort, and hope for families who are feeling lost and need a path forward.

USING CINDY'S FOUR STEP METHOD.
Parent coaching is partnering with a certified professional who can share the latest research-based practices to support your child’s physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. It is a collaborative process that is solution focused and future oriented. Individuals, couples, or groups receive non-judgmental support by phone, zoom or in person and discover a path to more joy, less stress, and significantly improved relationships. Some of the things I can help with...
Getting clear on your values and expectations is so important. From here you can set boundaries that don’t need to be justified, they are just what you are comfortable with as a parent.
We all deal with power struggles with our children. There are some simple small changes we can make in our communication that will drastically reduce, if not eliminate, their occurrence.
It is more than fine to set boundaries and expectations as a parent, this is our responsibility. The way we go about it is vital. “My way or the highway” just won’t cut it!
Maybe the most important aspect of parenting is to attend to our own self-care. We are better parents when we are taking care of our needs, both physical and emotional.
To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
