About Tara Reddington

I am most proud of my family and 5 children.  As a family coach, the most important part of my  “living resume” is my own family and children.   How can I guide parents and families if I don’t have a solid track record of my own.  The most effective sports coach is one that has had a successful career in that particular sport.  The scope of my parenting experiences ranges so wide from success with newborn baby life to  research and medical advocate for a severely disabled child and all things big and small that lie in-between.  I am very grateful to report that so far, I have managed to raise good natured, emotionally healthy, socially competent and independent children who are very committed to our family.  My daughter Grace has taught us all so much about life, love and the importance of family.  Although she has added lots of  stress and work to our lives through the years and made daily life more challenging, she has been our greatest teacher.
Professionally, I have practiced as a school psychologist since 1998.  Prior to that, I worked under Dr. Wilson Utter (Pediatrician) for ten years and learned more from him than all of my years of education combined.  He still continues to be my mentor.   In the Spring of 2017, I decided to officially create G6 Coaching,  utilizing physical fitness training combined with mind training blended into a unique model that I developed.  I specialize in anxiety management.  Along with being a school psychologist, I am also a personal fitness trainer and use  circuit training, strength training and cardio boxing to teach body control and sequencing through movement.  This has been very helpful in working with clients who have anxiety.  My skill set is unique and unmatched by other professionals.
Thankfully, I’m always learning, evolving and growing as an individual and I have learned to be grateful for the good and the bad in my life, realizing that without some form of failure and trial and error, we cannot grow stronger.  We must learn to not only face the burn, but embrace it.  This is true not only in physical fitness but in mind conditioning.  In order to build muscle, we must create stress on our muscles.  The fibers breakdown and they repair.  It is only through brokenness and challenges that we truly learn to re-build and gain strength and renewal of hope.  The term, G6 has grown to imply that we must learn to live at our highest levels of joy, peace, strength and trust.

From educational advocacy to parent consultation and direct child coaching specific to dealing with their social-emotional struggles, the goal of G6 Coaching is to deliver a full package of support and wrap the client and family in confidence and success and ultimately help them rediscover the joy they once knew as an individual and as a family.
