One on One Sessions:
While it is beneficial to attend classes, sometimes parents have individual issues that they prefer to have one on one coaching. These coaching sessions empower each parent to look within to discover who they are and how they would like to parent their child. Each session is designed to be unique to the parent that is being coached.
Coaching is different than counseling or therapy although it can have some similar results as far as gaining insight to what makes each of us tick and choose the actions and reactions that we do. Coaching is about offering support, encouragement and possibilities from which the parent gets to choose. Parent coaching is about building new muscles, using new techniques that are simple and effective to promote different and better outcomes. Parents get to experience methods that they themselves create. Through this process they learn how to empower their own children using the same techniques and tools.
If you would like to explore the possibility of one on one sessions, but you aren't sure if we can help, take our Empowerment Survey as an assessment tool. Contact now to get scheduled for a complimentary consultation.
After attending Mary’s empowered parenting series I feel less stress, less guilt, and much more joy in parenting. As a single mom I took on a lot of guilt and anger for all the reasons one becomes a single parent. Finding ways to let go of my past beliefs causing the guilt and anger was not what I had expected from this course, but that is exactly what happened. In doing so I started to find myself turning into the mom I wanted to be for my kids, and continue to do so as I practice using the tools I learned. Even the whole co-parenting part of single parenting has improved tremendously, also unexpected. Everyone can benefit from this course and book! Even couples thinking about becoming parents. ~ D.

The parent coaching I took from Mary Dravis-Parrish was amazing. Although it sounds really simple, it is really powerful. It worked like wonders. It was just perfect for my conditions of anger, anxiety, and paranoia. Any one can apply these techniques for any topics such as anger, discipline, relationships, parenting etc. I was so happy to work with Mary. She is amazing. I highly recommend any one who is going through turmoil to try her techniques. You won't regret it. It is all worth it for better relation ships, happiness, peaceful solutions, and much much more. Sincerely,
~ Suria Crank. Greeley CO.
"Mary took time to ask us our perspective and really listened to the specific details of our home situation. She was not trying to prescribe something generic or cover all, but rather was very specific to tailoring her suggestions to our children. She showed genuine interest in making sure our situation improves. She also followed up with very useful tips for us to use at home, which is golden, as practice makes perfect in achieving positive results." ~Rachel P. Fort Collins
The work Mary does has been an answer to a prayer I sent out to the Universe for help. I've found her work to be very soothing, helpful, and life-changing. Her work has opened up more possibilities for my life than I've ever known before. I originally went to her for parenting help, but I'm receiving help for many other areas of my life in addition to parenting. I look forward to doing even more work with Mary and can't wait to see the ways my world will open up even more. ~Diana M. Fort Collins, CO
Mary's work with my parents and myself has had lasting positive benefits several years after she provided family coaching. I sought her help after I and my teenage daughter combined households with my 80-year old parents. Mary had an amazing ability to communicate and connect with my analytical, acerbic father, my quirky artist mother and myself a somewhat over committed physician mom. Mary's wisdom, creativity and humor contributed to the safe space she created. Her pragmatic approach helped us to learn to start from non-judgmental observation; and be able to say to each other "That doesn't work for me. What else is possible?" I have recommended Mary to several others for assistance. All are very satisfied with the competent care she provided. ~ Sharon Montes MD
Mary is freaking unbelievable she really showed us how we can blend a family in our relationship to make sure that the children are heard and are part of the family relationship. Helped me leaps and bounds. I look forward to working with her ongoing. She is amazingly gifted and skilled.~ Ben W., Fort Collins
