Helping Parents and Teens Relate Better



Better Living Ahead for Parents of Teens is dedicated to providing practical tools and resources to help you be a better parent and make the teen years the best they can be.

My passion is to help parents raise responsible and compassionate adults by helping you:

  • understand your teenager better
  • focus on the adult you are raising (instead of the needy child in front of you)
  • create a clear plan you can follow with confidence

Personally, I have always loved working with people, making goals, and finding solutions to problems. I tackled the problem solving by obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and then working in the auto-industry. Although I enjoyed my work, my passion was for people. So I moved to Denver, Colorado to pursue a Masters of Divinity. After finishing the degree, I moved to Chilliwack, British Columbia where I have been working as a Youth Pastor and Personal Coach.

I love partnering with people to make life better. Coaching parents  has opened up a whole new world for me to help people get clear on what they would like life to look like for themselves and their families and begin to design and pursue it. It’s amazing how partnering with a coach can inspire vision and excitement for more – for better living ahead!

I am happily married to my best friend and we have two very active boys. I love being active with other people through rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, running, biking, swimming, soccer, hockey, etc. I also love enjoying a good conversation over coffee, reading, and camping with my family.
