About the author
Holly is a mother, grandmother, teacher, school counselor, therapist, and parenting coach. She spent thirteen years teaching grades K - 6 before becoming a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. Holly has worked during the past 29 years as a school counselor and teacher at the high school level while also serving as a clinical therapist in her own private practice. She counts her three adult children and their spouses, along with her seven grandchildren, as the true blessings in her life. The insights in her book evolved from the many experiences she has had while working with students and their families in the school system. Her greatest parenting lessons, however, developed as a result of both the successes and failures that occurred in the process of raising her own three children.
