Hi, I’m Diane.

I am the manger of all of our parenting education and support services at KW Counselling Services—and am very proud to be part of the Parenting Now Team. I have worked with, chatted with, cried with and laughed with MANY parents over the course of my career and am forever inspired and humbled by the stories I have heard.

I am also a parent of a truly amazing young woman. We have certainly had our ups and downs and, truth be told, I continue to struggle with how to parent an adult child who lives on the other side of the country! She has taught me a lot about myself and my parenting. Some of it great, some of it not so great. I have learned how to love and value her for herself and to let go of the little things that just don’t matter.

I would love to talk with you about your parenting journey. What have you learned along the way?


Here are some articles I wrote for Parenting Now:
