Hi I am Mary Dravis-Parrish and I am on a mission! I am on a mission to take parents out of the classic mold that has been used to raise kids for centuries. I want to empower parents to be able to use their own unique way of being to parent their children. My first step in this mission is to let parents know that it is okay to step out of the mold, especially if it isn't working. The traditional mold that has been passed down is more about keeping kids and parents in a box of judgment and expectations rather than allowing both to bloom into the awesome beings they came here to be.
Many parents are doing their best to try to meet and understand their kids, and yet still feel frustrated, confused and even angry that they aren't getting the results that they expected. I know I was there and I did all the things that the experts, our society, school systems and culture dictated. None of it helped me to know my children as well as I would have liked. None of it helped me to know what I was bringing to these relationships and how I was helping or hurting my kids through my own judgments, conclusions and expectations. For over 40 years I have been searching to be an empowered parent and I have finally found the keys that take parents out of the box and into freedom and joy of parenting. I want this for more parents so that they too can experience true bliss, harmony and confidence as they raise our future generations.
More about Mary...
Families today are not just traditional families but they now include single parents, parents of the same gender, as well as grandparents raising grandchildren. Mary Dravis-Parrish believes that regardless of the structure of a family, families can thrive, be happy and successful in today's world. She also believes that the world will be a much better place when family life focuses on empowering parents and kids to be the unique caring beings they are meant to be. Mary provides simple strategies and techniques that allow each family to raise happy children that feel confident stepping into their unique gifts and talents to offer to the world. She utilizes her teaching experience along with her natural talents for getting to the root of what is causing distress, discord and dis-ease in family living.
Mary Dravis-Parrish, brings her experience as well as her learning and certifications to address issues that parents face day to day. Being a child, living in a home of eight children, she discovered many styles to living, learning and coping, which lead her on a path to teaching children and working with parents to create more ease in family living. Mary’s parenting experiences include being a teen parent, single parent, co-parent, step-parent and a parent who lost her son to suicide. She understands the needs, demands, and dynamics that parents experience.
In addition to working with families, Mary also facilitates change for individuals who are looking to improve their life. She utilizes a mix of energy techniques with verbal processing to empower each person to create the life they truly desire.
My philosophy for the care I offer is to give and coach my clients to be more empowered to be able to be the person/parent they would like to be. I believe that we all hold limiting beliefs that keep us from making the choices that allow us to become more of our own individual, having the courage and trust to follow our own path and knowing.
On the first visit we will establish what a client wants to receive from sessions, what they can expect from me as their coach, and at least one strategy that will get them started towards their goal.
I was inspired to work especially with parents, but also individuals, after the suicide death of my son. My journey through that experience lead me to self discovery that changed my life and empowered me to live a fuller life. My process is a continual one, which allows me to be open to new concepts, skills, and awareness for changes that are needed for me and for my clients.
