Claire Cetti, a PCI Certified Parent Coach®, has 4 amazing, vastly different kids who have been her biggest teachers in her own parenting journey. When she began her family 23+ years ago, she was the first of her friends to begin this journey called parenting. She was in California 3,000 miles away from her original family in Boston, with minimal support, which left her feeling isolated, overwhelmed and questioning every parenting move she made. Through various experiences and realizations along the way, she began to learn how to parent intuitively, based on what was important to her, who her children inherently were and what she desired for her family.
After 12 years at home, Claire returned to work at a local college Health and Counseling Center. There she witnessed first hand the dramatic increase of anxiety, stress and depression in students entering college and it prompted her to take a deeper look at how she was parenting her own children. This quest to help her and her kids be more prepared as they grew to be young adults leaving home was eye-opening, and a game-changer in her overall parenting journey. By sharing what she has learned in her parenting experiences over the past 23+ years, working with students and parents, both prior to and at the college level, along with her PCI certification, Claire truly desires to help and support parents who are facing their own struggles and challenges within their parenting journey, no matter where they are on it. She helps parents tap into their own personal strengths, values, internal knowledge and wisdom they already have within them. By doing so, parents are able to find endless potential for creativity and possibilities for solutions to any challenge they may be facing, thereby discovering a confidence and peace within their now-renewed parenting journey leaving a lasting impact, not only for them, but for the family as a whole.
Claire, originally from Boston, MA, resides in Santa Barbara, California with her husband and her 17-year-old daughter, now a junior in high school. Her 3 older children have all successfully launched and are following their unique passions and paths in life.
