Hi! My name is Jessica (Jess) Silverman and I am a certified Change Coach, parenting coach, a Positive Discipline Parent Educator and an early intervention speech language pathologist (SLP). I take great pleasure in serving the needs of others, helping them make the changes they desire and pointing them to their innate wisdom, peace, creativity and resilience.
My desire to become a coach came out of my own challenges as a human and a parent and the struggles that I often witness in individuals and families. My personal life journey continues to teach me so much as I make mis-takes and deepen my grounding in how all humans work and how change really happens. Life can feel like a rollercoaster of emotions. I have personally experienced feelings of indescribable joy, pride, and excitement as well as frustration, anger, and fear. I believe that whether you wish for better behaviors, more happiness, less stress and worry or stronger family connections, having support can make achieving those goals so much easier and faster.
I founded Parenting with Clarity, a heart-centered business designed to help parents experience greater ease and positive lasting changes in their family. You can find me on Facebook here: Parenting with Clarity with Jessica Silverman. If you are interested in raising your children with more calm, compassion, and clarity and would like to be in a FREE FB group with like minded parents, then come join Wisdom Led Parenting.
In June of 2020, I completed a 6-month Change Coach Training Program with Dr. Amy Johnson. It wasn't focused on parenting like other trainings I have participated in but rather a new paradigm that can help people get freedom from unsupportive habits, including anxiety, anger, excessive worry, or any place people feel stuck. At the end of the training, Amy invited me to be a moderator/coach in her online school, The Little School of Big Change. It’s an honor to support the people in this incredible community. In April of 2022, I completed a 4-month mentoring program for practitioners with Erika Bugbee called "Working with Teens." While I do specialize in working with parents, I am also passionate about working with teens, young adults, or anyone who is struggling and wants freedom from overwhelm, stress, and/or anxiety.
As a lifelong learner, it’s not unusual to find me taking courses, reading books and listening to podcasts but my greatest teachers of all are my 2 amazing children. I live outside of Philadelphia with my husband, our two teenagers and one fur baby. I enjoy taking walks, playing board games, getting absorbed in a good TV show or book, eating good food, attending musical theater, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Hang out with me and you'll likely hear me sing randomly and laugh loudly.
