Julia McGarey holds a Master’s Degree in Human Development and Education from the University of Colorado at Denver. As a certified Leading Edge Parenting Coach, she pays particular attention to the challenges of parenting Highly Sensitive Children. A Highly Sensitive Person herself, Julia sees both the beauty and the challenges of raising a child who feels things deeply, notices everything, and commits to their plans with unmatched persistence.
Julia’s first priority is giving parents the tools they need to understand their child’s most challenging behaviors. She works collaboratively with her clients to help them move beyond punishments. She leads parents to non-violent, nourishing, and effective ways of meeting their children’s needs. Her work goes beyond solving today’s parenting problems, though. She believes in empowering parents with the knowledge they need to be their child’s most powerful advocate as they move through school and into adulthood.
