Can you imagine having the most amazing relationship with your adult children that you ever dreamed possible? I help frustrated women, who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who are struggling in feeling connected with their adult children. Not only do I help them learn how to connect with their adult children, but also how to always choose love, regardless of what their children say or do. LOVE ALWAYS WINS; of all the emotions to choose, LOVE always feels the best.

I help women connect with their adult children.

I work with smart women, just like you, who are feeling disrespected, unimportant, unappreciated, and guilty but are committed to finding a way to having a more satisfying relationship with their adult children.

I teach women how to strengthen:
  1. Their emotional connection with their adult children
  2. Their ability to feel compassion, regardless of their children’s behavior.

There is one simple to understand formula, the Model, that I use as a foundation for my coaching. Once I’ve helped you learn to apply this formula, not only will your relationship with your adult children be strengthened, but also it will also help you solve any other problem you are having in your life.

The Model is easy to understand but harder to apply. But that’s my job as your coach; to help you develop the skill of feelings the feelings you want to feel more of the time, and feeling less the ones you don’t want to feel.

I give women who are hurting the self-confidence to create the life they only dreamed was maybe possible.


I help them see another perspective in the connection issues they are having with their adult children. There are always at least two perspectives to every situation.  One can cause us to feel despair and frustration while another one can cause us to feel love and compassion.  I help women to see how love is always an option.  I use a tool called the Model.  It's essentially a fill-in-the-blanks formula that helps us to understand where are negative emotions are actually coming from.  It's easy to learn but harder to apply.  This is where I come in.  I help guide women through not only understanding the Model, but also help them practice using it in their own personal struggles with their adult children.

What Past Clients Say

  • In just a short time in working with Bonnie, I found myself going to a place of “love” instead of judgement when I found myself in a situation where I could have felt slighted, insignificant, skipped over, ignored, put down or devalued. I have learned new steps in not taking things so personally and seriously and being able to develop new thought patterns. I feel so more like myself! And I experience so much less contention in my heart and mind. Thank you, Bonnie, for teaching me that love always wins

  • I enjoyed my coaching hour each week with Bonnie. My 4 sessions built upon each other, teaching me that it was my thoughts that were causing all my painful feelings; not what other people did or said. I wasn’t sure what I would get out of my coaching sessions. Were they going to be able to help me be happier? My sessions did surface some difficult feelings that were caused by my judgmental thoughts. Learning the CTFAR Model was a game changer. It was a great tool for me to break down some mental roadblocks. Bonnie showed me how to apply the Model daily and helped me implement it when I couldn’t figure out how to change my thoughts. Bonnie put me on a better path to feeling more self-confidence. I have a happier relationship with my parents and my adult children because of the coaching sessions I had with Bonnie.

  • I had the opportunity to be coached by Bonnie. In just a short time she was able to teach me the CTFAR Model which I have tried to implement in my thinking and REACTIONS TO SITUATIIONS. IT IS SOMETHING NEW FOR ME, SO I HAVE TO WORK TO DISCARD OLD THINKING THAT creeps in. But Bonnie was able to help me. I’ve had two thoughts stick with me: I have NO control over anyone but ME and I can NOT control how anyone else thinks or feels! I would recommend Bonnie as a Life Coach to any woman who thinks she needs to make some changes in here self-thoughts and/or relationships
