Trustle Love

This is fantastic. I really loved being able to connect directly with my coach who always had spot on advice about my toddler issues. I feel like I have new tools in my toolkit and I definitely feel more confident about how to be a parent for my toddler in a loving and supportive way. My coach totally gave me advice in line with how I want to parent, and hearing it from her made me feel really confident that it was the right thing to do.

I really feel like a great parent using her advice.

The service gave me the peace of mind that I had someone to talk to about my concerns, rather than allowing them to fester in my head for weeks at a time. It was great to talk to someone who understood what I was going through, and could also provide valuable advice / suggestions on how to manage those concerns.

I loved the personal connection with the coach. I liked that she was proactive about checking in and so considerate, thoughtful, and thorough in her responses. She gave actionable tips that I could put into practice right away. I also liked being connected with a clinician and having access to her brain. I trusted her advice and knew it came from a place of research-backed knowledge. That gave me confidence and comfort.

Having access to someone whose opinion I trust made me feel like I was okay no matter what came up this month.
