Your child wants to feel heard, but you don’t feel heard yourself.  Your child wants it their way ALL THE TIME – and it’s beginning to feel like they’re running the house. 

You love your child dearly but something has to change fast!

Hi I'm Michelle McVittie.

With over 20 years of experience as a behaviour specialist in pediatric medical and mental health, receiving my BA in Sociology and a Child Life Studies Diploma, I can help. Specializing in strong-willed children, ADHD, anxiety in children ranging in ages from 5 – teens…

I See You, I Feel You. I Am Here to Help.

Save your sanity by building a beautiful, loving connection and mutual respect with your smart, independent child, who no longer acts out on purpose and talks back because they don’t feel heard.

Ready to eliminate frustration and second-guessing your approach with your child or teen?

“I Quit! Oh Wait, I’m the Mom”

Before you became a mother you were a person, remember her?  Find practical tips to find you joy again in motherhood.  You can’t pour from an empty cup.  When you give to yourself you are able to banish burnout and learn to respond instead of react to your children.


You don’t have to figure this out alone.  1:1 coaching takes a deeper dive into your questions and concerns.  The combination of completing some questionnaires and your initial intake call, Michelle will create a document for you to help you understand where your child is doing well, where they are struggling and a comprehensive set of treatment goals.  There is a minimum of 4 sessions to work with Michelle, to give you the accountability and coaching to set you up for success.


Michelle has created courses to fit your specific needs as caregivers.  Check out her variety of courses on strong-willed children, parenting a child with special needs, ADHD, and more!  Together as Team parenting courses were created from Michelle’s experience with children and families.  Over her twenty-year career she has worked with young offenders, in daycares as a behaviour specialist, in pediatric medical and mental health, and in supervised private practice.  This evidence informed content and over twenty years of experience is not available to you in self-paced and group coaching programs.
