Parenting Help and Coaching in Portland, Oregon

Our Mission

Parenting, especially now, can feel overwhelming and down-right exhausting at times. We are able to provide new strategies and ideas to parents so they can enjoy a less stressful, more enjoyable and balanced life as a family.

Our unique parent coaching approach assists you to bring change to challenging behaviors, ease tension for parents with new techniques and methods to discipline, creating healthy dynamics between siblings, as well as much more. We help you make lasting changes in the relationship you have with your child to become a more relaxed and aware parent.

There are times as a parent when you need support. We all do. We are here to help.

We offer parent coaching and parenting help online via Zoom or by phone. Schedule a session for a free introductory chat.

“Parenting requires know-how in tools and strategies on the one hand, and a certain degree of emotional maturity to implement them in an effective and empowering manner on the other hand.  In short, parenting involves a lifelong commitment to changing and growing on a moment-by-moment basis.” 
-Dr. Shefali Tsabary, The Awakened Family

A Warm Welcome to Heart Centered Parenting

Parenting is an opportunity to learn and grow through relationship with our children. We'll give you hands-on powerful tools to assist you with parenting and to raise empowered, resilient and independent children.

Helping parents with children of all ages, is why our Portland, Oregon based, online Parent Coaching, Parenting Help and Education Practice was established. Meg O'Keeffe began Heart Centered Parenting as a mother of two children, Montessori trained Educator of 30 years and a certified Coach Practitioner of the Conscious Parenting Coaching Method™ by Dr. Shefali Tsabary.  

"There is a delicate balance between guiding and observing a child as he leads his own development. Yes, we are role models but we must allow the child to explore and discover on his own." -Maria Montessori
