Kathy Whitham is a Registered Nurse and a Behavior Parenting Coach who combines holistic heart-based parenting with leading edge brain science to help parents understand their child’s challenging behavior and then know what to do about it. She teaches parents how to speak the same language as their child - nurturing connection, building open, honest communication and restoring peace at home.
