Potty Training

(In-home potty training coaching is on hold, at least until Fall of 2021!)


From a toddler’s perspective, potty training is an accomplishment on par with learning to read, learning to drive, getting accepted to college, and registering to vote.

But it doesn’t always go smoothly.

Respond to your child in a way that you’ll be able to use again and again as your child develops.

I offer:

  • in-home coaching with potty training
  • consultation with teachers to improve home-school consistency
  • workshops about potty training
  • focused potty training support groups
