Carrie Contey, Ph.D., parenting expert and coach, is on a mission to help parents create the life of their dreams by providing inspiration and practical tools for them to better understand themselves and their children.

“As someone who has coached more than 10,000 families worldwide, I am wildly passionate about evolving the way we think about human beings, human development and family life,” said Contey. “I’m on a mission to help parents know themselves deeply, understand and trust their children more, make a family life that is their very own, and have as much fun as they possibly can along the way.”

Contey has degrees in prenatal psychology, perinatal psychology, health education and promotion, and has been referenced as an expert source on parenting in broadcast programs including “The Today Show,” CBS Radio and National Public Radio.
