About Rachel

I’m Rachel Bailey. For over a decade, I’ve helped hundreds of parents bring out the best in their children. In addition to my master’s degree in clinical psychology, I have been an ADHD coach, in-home mentor (helping to improve family dynamics), therapist, and teacher of positive parenting techniques. And I’m a mom.

Like many of you, I tried “traditional” strategies with my kids…yelling, threatening, even the “positive” ones like rewards and praise. But none of those strategies worked in the long run and they didn’t feel good for me or my kids.

So I learned how to switch from “band-aid parenting” (using strategies that don’t stick after a while) to “long-game parenting,” which lead to results that lasted and made me feel more confident and in control.  Now I teach other families how to do the same… and how to enjoy interacting with their kids again. 

And I can teach you too.
