Gina - Occupational Therapist, Writer, Child-Led Learning Coach, and Behavior Transformation Specialist
Donald - Speaker, EFT Practitioner, Mindset Coach and Behavior Transformation Specialist
One might think with all those qualifications and the fact Donald and Gina are the proud parents of three children who are now 25, 21, and 14 that they were prepared for any parenting challenges
But along with the joys and challenges of everyday parenting, the Grothoff family has experienced issues with mental illness, extreme personality and behavior changes in their children and aging parents needing caregiving which has thrown them for a loop.
Through a long, traumatic and difficult journey with many mistakes made along the way, Gina and Don found they had to listen to and take the advice from the professionals but needed to modify it to fit their values and beliefs.
Since then, their lives have led them down non-traditional paths of life, learning and following passions. Because of their unique journey and the realization that others struggle with similar challenges, Gina and Don are now passionate about helping other families, especially those stuck in the Sandwich Generation, find their way. They work together as Behavior Transformation Specialists, sought-after speakers and facilitators, and run Focused Healthy Family in Charlotte, NC.
Gina and Don share their life journey and experiences with an emphasis on parenting our children, our parents and ourselves on their podcast https://www.focusedhealthyfamilypodcast.com
Donald and Gina believe and teach that communication and emotional stability in a family, especially for parents sandwiched between raising their kids and caring for aging parents, are key to a healthy, happy family.
