With over 60 years in education combined, the three of us have worked with hundreds of parents and led them through various tough situations. In our experience, there are many issues that are becoming more difficult for our parents and society. They include mental health issues at a younger age, chaotic schedules, screen time, and many others. We are great listeners and our expertise lies in making plans with parents to help their children be successful.

Lisa Edwards M.Ed.
I have been in education for over 16 years with degrees in Early Childhood,Elementary Education, Administration and a Master’s in Education in Teaching and Learning. Through my career, I have had many experiences working with families who have children with many unique needs and situations.
I live with my husband, daughter, son and dog in Minnesota, where I stay busy being a mom, hiking, and traveling. Both my daughter and son are on the edge of becoming teenagers so we all know what lies ahead in those challenging years!
I understand how it is to support children going through mental health struggles. Both of my children have anxiety, with my son struggling with severe depression as well. My son has struggled since a very young age and receives Special Education services at school. I have extensive knowledge of working with schools on services for children with special needs and can help you navigate the inner workings of school systems. I have also gone through many decisions on how to help my own children such as deciding what therapy might be best, or whether medication may be helpful. These are all big decisions that can affect your children.
It is so important to have support from others while raising children. Sometimes, you just don’t know what to do or where to turn. I am here to listen and provide you with guidance so you can overcome your parenting challenges. We can do this together.

Dr. Kim Grengs
I’m Dr. Kim Grengs mother to three young adult children: one daughter and two sons. My experience includes twenty five years as an educator both as a teacher and a principal. I believe that being a parent is an ever evolving learning experience. There are days where I have given myself a time away and remind myself to take a deep breath.
I have experience as a teacher at the intermediate level and as an elementary principal for a total of twenty-seven years. I have definitely learned so many valuable lessons in those twenty-seven years. First, how important it is to be a good listener. I think for most parents they just need another person to listen to them when they have questions or need to talk about what is happening with their child. They also need someone to verify that they are not alone. There are many of us parents that have experienced many of the same things, but have not talked about it with anyone. I am here to be a listener. I will share my story and experiences to help each parent feel like they are not alone.
Being a parent is the most rewarding experience I have ever had and can also be very frustrating. My three children are very different from one another and need different things from me and my husband. Even now, they are young adults out of high school, they need things daily. I am still learning how to respond to their needs, but know that it is all worth it. I do believe children need roots and wings.

Lisa Reichelt, M.Ed.
I have spent my career as an educator supporting children and parents and assisting them in developing tight family bonds. I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and 40 years of experience working with children and families. My background includes work as a nanny, daycare provider, school teacher and administrator in both public and private schools. I have worked with families in both urban and rural settings. My goal has always been to support and strengthen family relationships.
I am proudest of my role as a wife, mother and grandmother. I believe that strong families are the backbone of our communities. When couples bring home that first baby, they have no idea what challenges lie ahead and often our society isn’t positioned to offer the support and answers that parents need. Raising a child to become a happy, responsible, respectful adult can be a daunting task. I am passionate about guiding families through the difficulties of deciding which strategies to use for: discipline, teaching responsibility, passing on family values and creating a respectful home environment.
Parents have dreams and wishes for their child’s future, but sometimes reality doesn’t match those dreams. Every family experiences stress and challenges. Parent Coaching can help sort out the problems and move your family towards solutions. I am well qualified and eager to help strengthen your family dynamics. Your family is your legacy, and it deserves your utmost attention.
