Need a speaker for your next event?

Dr. David Simonsen is a sought after relationship expert. His years of working with families and couples give him unique insight.

Perhaps you need someone who can speak at a couples, men or family retreat. Learning in a group is a great way to create memories.

We can work together to bring a great experience to your event.

If you are wondering if I may be the right fit for you speaking engagement I encourage you to give me a call 360-280-9227 for a free initial phone consultation. I would be happy to talk with you about thoughts you may have or answer any questions about my speaking event.

If you've ever thought to yourself, "there's gotta be an easier way...am I going crazy...why won't these kids just do what they're told..." you are not alone. Thousands of parents and families over thousands of years have struggled with parenting. So know that you are not alone!

If you are a divorced parent trying to co-parent with a former partner who you may or may not get along with, parenting gets even more difficult. Divorce is not just emotionally hard on you, it's also hard on kids.

 

Parenting is possibly the one area in life that we are supposed to just do when a baby shows up. We are supposed to take what we learned in our own upbringing and just transfer that to the next generation.

Well, if you grew up in a home with absent parents...abusive siblings...no boundaries, what you see as effective parenting could be a very skewed. Add opinionated friends and in-laws and things could feel hopeless for you as a parent.

Many professions have coaches and business consultants attached to them. This is because no one is simply born an expert. People become experts over time and then share their knowledge with others. I believe parenting is no different.

As a parenting and family coach, I value your expertise on your family. You are the one who was there from the beginning. This is the thing that often creates blind spots which I can help with. 

I offer something unique. You don't come to me, I come to you. I make myself available for a 1-5 day hands on experience. I will coach you and your family on how to interact appropriately with one another. You can get back to loving your kid rather than controlling and demanding things from them. 

Whether you have a high-conflict relationship or no conflict at all let's talk more and get your family relationships back on track!
