Parent Support & Education


Most of my graduate work was in maternal mental health. I also trained as a doula and childbirth educator. You could say, I’m pretty passionate about providing the best experience for moms, dads and babies. Here, I do this  through New Parent classes that include healthy living ideas for pregnancy and birth,  self-advocacy technique training, relationship skills training (ie: Babyproof your relationship) and empowered baby care for when you’re home with that new little bundle and totally confused and overwhelmed about your new job as mom.

There is no one set theory practiced here but the mission is to educate parents on options so they can decide what path best suits them and then support them as they are empowered to navigate their chosen path. That empowerment is the key to happy and healthy moms and dads.


Does it feel like you are always talking and no one listens? Are you frustrated or overwhelmed or feeling bad about the way you interact with your kids. Does this parent thing look way different than you imagined when you looked at that tiny baby? No matter the age of your babes, there are 4 Principles of Explicit Parenting that will help you restore peace to your home. EP courses will teach you what the tools are and how to implement them to encourage cooperation and communication. Whether your child is a toddler or a teen, Explicit Parenting courses found at Awe Mama are just what you need to cook up your own brand of homemade happiness.

Puppy and Kid Mom Lesson of the Week: when things are too quiet or quiet for too long, you’re right, something not-so-good is happening.🤦‍♀️ It can be so easy to give into the quiet. I mean, toddlers (and puppies) are exhausting. So, when we get a couple extra stolen moments it makes sense we might let our guard down and sink into the silence. Here is the trick: when you investigate and find the reason for the quiet, don’t let the results ruin your rest. Flour all over the kitchen can be cleaned. Marker on the dining room chair can be removed (ask me how I know) and quarter round floor trim can be sanded and repainted (I hope!). The kids (and puppies) aren’t trying to wreck our houses or our days. They’re just doing what they do best: exploring and creating. Embrace it. Enjoy the quiet and roll with the “creativity” that comes with it. You’ll all be better off for it. We got this. xoxo, CRK . . . #puppiesandtoddlers #lovenotesformom #puppylessons #parenting ...

The messages have been clear for a while: I need more fun. Life’s been pretty heavy (as you know). Work’s felt extra heavy (as you might have guessed). To counteract all the heavy, I’m trying to add in more fun. I started with my hair. Bangs always make me feel younger and lighter. And this shag is either 70s disco or 80s punk. What the heck could be more fun than either of those? Now I just need to figure out how to have more fun in my days, not just on my head. What do you do for fun? . . . #mentalhealth #balance #shiftyourgaze ...
