Claire Cetti is a much-loved local Santa Barbara positive parenting coach, who brings both a deep understanding of the many common feelings and experiences that come with being a parent of a little one, with a special skill to hold space and ask the right questions to new parents trying to get their footing and clarity as both a parent and person.
Claire is the parent of four unique, vastly different kids. She was the first of her friends to start her parenting journey, 3,000 miles away from my original family with minimal support and felt isolated and that she didn’t know what she was doing. There was so much to figure out, and she questioned every parenting move she made.
Claire’s own personal parenting journey of experiencing frequent conflict, overwhelm, and anger as a mama of 4 to becoming a more calm, confident mama who created the strong, close-knit, deeply connected family she has today, is what brought her to parent coaching. She enjoys supporting and guiding those in transition stages of parenting, where she can apply her Masters Level Certification in Parent Coaching through The Parent Coaching Institute (PCI) at Seattle Pacific University.
In her role as a support group facilitator, Claire will bring deep expertise in positive parenting/ positive discipline, as well the hard-earned insights that come from having lived through the challenge and overwhelm. In her role as a Positive Parenting/ Positive Discipline instructor, Claire helps parents who desire to change the parenting patterns that are not serving them, or their kids well, begin to feel calmer, more in control, and connected with their kids, thus creating a peaceful family culture they truly desire.
