Hello there! My name is Jennifer Szeghi. I am a mother, parentcoach/coordinator, and the founder of Successful Parenting. As I reflect on my journey in life, I find the steps that have lead me to this point in life intriguing and I know this is where I am meant to be. Helping other parents and children is my true calling!
After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2002, I started two positions to gain more experience with children and adolescents who have behavioral and emotional problems. As a residential manager at Hamilton County Juvenile Court-Hillcrest Detention Center, I was responsible for twelve juvenile male offenders. Despite the administration had a bet on how long I would last in this position (mostly due to the fact all of the males I was responsible for were bigger than I was and had the physical ability to take me out at anytime), I used the techniques I learned in school to develop positive respectful relationships with these boys and techniques to encourage positive behavior. The boys excelled during my shifts, and the administration had to take back what they had said about me. At the same time, I also worked at Mercy Mt. Airy Children & Adolescent Psychiatric Unit. In this position, I was exposed to many crisis situations and used crisis management skills to deescalate threatening behaviors.
The next step in my life took me to The Chicago School of Professional Psychology to obtain a Master of Arts in Psychology. I actually found out I was going to become a mom on the same day I got accepted to graduate school. Being in this predicament, I was determined to soak up as much information about being a parent and child development from the program, to help me in the most important role in my life. It was quite a balancing act to meet the needs of a new born and deadlines of grad school, but with my baby cuddling on my chest and laptop on my lap, we made it work! I graduated with my Master of Arts in Psychology in 2005 with my 16-month-old son in tow.
