Hi! I’m Evelyn

Hello Fellow Cycle Breaker - I'll try and sum myself up in a nutshell, here it goes. For the past 15 years I have studied codependency, conscious parenting, family dysfunction, toxic relationships and narcissistic abuse. I'm a Certified Parent Coach, Trauma Support Specialist and Positive Discipline Educator specializing in helping parents break the cycle of family dysfunction.

My Fancy Bio

I am crazy passionate about empowering parents (just like you) with the tools you need to break cycles and become your bad-ass self. I live in Round Rock, TX with my awesome hubby, Dave, teen step-daughters, rambunctious boys and neurotic husky. My household may be loud and always messy, but it is bursting with character. I love hiking, traveling, craft beer and good coffee...but not necessarily in that order.

More Weird Quirks About Me

I LOVE sauces of all kinds (garlic aioli is my fav!)

Brunch is my favorite meal (yes, it's a real meal)

I am a nerd about codependency & narcissism (I read about this stuff all the time...for fun)

I HATE folding laundry(I have two loads waiting patiently in my living room as I write this)

I HATE doing dishes (even more than laundry)

I lived in NYC for one year (yay, South Street Seaport!)

I've been skydiving and bungee jumping (not at the same time)

My Life Before I Dealt with My Baggage

EXTREME CODEPENDENCY: I struggled with low self esteem, insecurity, chronic self doubt, people-pleasing, perfectionism and had major control issues (little did I know at the time that these traits were symptoms due to trauma).

TOXIC MARRIAGE: I was in a dysfunctional and emotionally abusive relationship and marriage for 7 years and didn’t realize it (yes, he was narcissistic).

NARCISSISTIC FAMILY SYSTEM: I was stuck in dysfunctional family dynamics with a narcissistic parent that was traumatizing even as an adult (I always thought I was the problem).

INSECURE PARENTING STRUGGLES: I was triggered constantly by my kids, held my emotions in until I blew up, tried to control their behavior and felt like a failure daily. (I knew I was screwing up, but had no idea how to change.)

My Life Today

SOLID SELF ESTEEM: I feel GOOD about myself most days which is a new phenomenon and I genuinely like myself (thank you recovery!)

HEALTHY MARRIAGE: I have been in an emotionally healthy relationship and marriage with my soul mate and partner in crime for 12 years (woohoo, healthy love does exist!)

SOLID FAMILY SYSTEM WITH BOUNDARIES: I have been no contact with my narcissistic parent for two years now and am no longer in a dysfunctional family system (thank God, I am free!)

ROCKSTAR PARENTING SKILLS: I feel confident in my parenting knowing I’m no longer projecting my insecurities onto my kids. (Cheers to breaking dysfunctional parenting cycles!)
