Meet Jackie

If you want to learn effective parenting strategies and techniques that incorporate YOUR values, YOUR style, and YOUR individuality…
If you love your children, but sometimes struggle to get through the day without yelling and arguing…
Perhaps, you are in search of coping skills and strategies…
And, especially if you desire to have long lasting strong family relationships with love, enjoyment, and gratitude throughout…
Then, you’ve arrived at the right place (ahhh, deep breath).
With my specialized knowledge, I can help you to navigate the (sometimes) rough waters of divorce, anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and more.
My name is Jackie Flynn, and I help parents with the “biggies” of family life .  If you can relate to any this struggles and desires, then are in the right place.
