Her Daughter is Now Her Son

This is one mom’s story of her transgender daughter transitioning into becoming her son. It is a beautiful tale of one family’s amazing unconditional love, acceptance and support for one another’s individual, unique journey. This is a story of loving our kids for who they actually are, not for who think they are or the vision we might hold for them. This is an example of parenting through a lens of seeking to understand first.

I consider it my life’s work to build community and connection. I am a warrior mom of two teenage girls, a passionate educator and musician. I also have first hand experience parenting a teen through very difficult times. I have embarked on a journey to combine my experiences as an educator, artist and as a parent to help develop programs to support and educate parents, especially those struggling in their relationship with “tweens,” teens and young adults. I am a graduate of The Parent Coaching Institute. I am currently the co-chair of the St. Luke’s Pediatric Family Advisory Council representing families with children hospitalized due to a mental health crisis. I am on the board of the Idaho Suicide Prevention Coalition. I am an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and I am committed to their Principles of Good Practice.
