Our children: we love them SO much.

There is nothing that compares to parenting when it comes to being so wonderful and so maddening at the very same moment.

Twenty years ago, I founded Head & Heart Parents to guide parents through this complicated maze of raising children who grow into good adults. Thousands have taken my classes and gleaned insights from my presentations.  I am passionate about parenting and now I am bringing it all online!

On my site, you will find a wealth of information about parenting as well as resources for preserving your own sanity and sense of humor while living with young people.

Online Parenting Classes

For the past 17 years, my Head & Heart Parenting classes have helped thousands of parents calm the chaos and bring more emotional well-being to their families.

Live with Kerry

I am now doing LIVE sessions on Instagram and Facebook.  These are fun, interactive dialogs where we confront some of the most daunting parenting challenges.

Parent Coaching

I offer coaching for parents through my private practice to help families become more connected, more peaceful, and more emotionally intelligent.

A very special chance for Founding Members to get early access to The Moms Group.

I am about to open the doors

Moms devote their lives to pouring into others—their children, their families, and those around them… The Mom’s Group creates a place where THEY get to be poured into, seen, honored and celebrated. A place for moms to be real, connect, and build their own skills in the process.

Kerry’s Approach

From babies…


From cradle to college, Kerry helps parents walk the tightrope of lovingly meeting children’s needs for secure attachment while preparing them for a world of cause and effect.

… to teens


As children morph into adolescents, parents must evolve their parenting model to prepare youth for independence while maintaining strong, loving connections.

  • “Kerry had a very warm delivery; personable, and tried-and-true. Wonderful content delivered in a transparent way. Held my attention!”

    -Mother of girl, 3

  • We love that you gave us things to implement right away, it made us feel very hopeful, and we are thankful for that and for you.

    Emma, mom of boys 8 and 6

  • Kerry created a comfortable environment where everyone feels okay to share and ask questions. She presents the material in an interesting way. She does a great job of monitoring time and tailoring class to what was useful and relevant to us. Great job of answering questions, but keeping the class focused.

    Annie and Jake, parents of teenage girls

  • "I’m definitely a happier parent! My time with my kids has become more enjoyful and valuable."

    Mother of boy 5 and girl 3

  • "I feel more confident! Because of that, I enjoy my child more and have more fun."

    Mother of 17 month old

  • "After taking the class, I feel I can remain mature and not fall to my child’s level of anger and frustration."

    Mother of eleven year old girl

  • “Kerry has spoken some of the most inspirational, helpful and practical advice I’ve heard in years!  Thank you!” 

    Christine, mother daughters 3 & 5 years old

  • “I really liked how Kerry was open to all different parenting styles and needs during the class.  She was able to hear from everyone and I felt connected to her and the other people in the class”

    Mother of 3 year old

  • “I appreciated that Kerry’s a parent herself and uses these techniques.  She was able to tell us what works and what doesn’t, which made the class feel authentic.”


  • “Kerry helped me understand how to approach situations differently and be more patient.  She opened my eyes to a new and more peaceful way of parenting”

To Feel or Not to Feel?

I cringe to admit how many years of my life Memorial Day has been a nice 3-day weekend and not much more than a nod to those who have fallen while serving our country.  But not this year.  This year I feel reverential down to my bones for Memorial Day.   Several boys...

Living Imperfectly With Great Delight

Being a therapist is so intimate. In session, some people are more honest and open with me than they are with pretty much anyone else in their lives. I get to hear the sound of their internal dialogue. You know, the inner voices that we all have which are constantly...

Dare to be Daring

"Every time I’ve stepped out of my self-imposed box, I’ve felt more alive, like I’m living the life I’m meant to live." I’ve been a “good girl” and responsible mother. I’ve lived plenty of my life following the rules. But when I look back over my years, the parts that...
