About Leslie Potter + Purejoy Parenting

Who I am as a guide… is deeply informed by my imperfectly perfect journey of motherhood. 

I’m profoundly human and I’m OK with that. Over the last 20 years I’ve walked my talk through the fires of motherhood and emerged with a fierce purpose to support you in finding your unique brilliance beyond guilt, shame and self-aggression.

You may have seen other coaches that teach you to control your child’s behavior, seemingly avoiding taking personal responsibility for their part in the dynamic. I am not that.  

I lovingly challenge your stories, boldly question your conditioned beliefs and relentlessly guide you to trust yourself creating the joyful home you desire. Kindness, profound wisdom and contagious joy are my tools of transformation. 

With my background as a coach, psychotherapist and spiritual inquirer I’ll share all I’ve learned on this wondrous journey and encourage you to be exactly who you always wanted to be as a parent. 


Courses, groups, one-on-one support with Leslie and the Purejoy Parenting Community.  We’re here to support you in becoming the parent you’ve always known you could be.




Inspiration and support for you and your heart in your parenting journey. 


The Parenting P-A-U-S-E-D Podcast is inspiration to support you in being the parent you want to be.

Where is Your Support?

Where is Your Support?

For a good part of my life, I believed I didn’t have the support I needed in order to walk through the difficulties of life. Life should be easier, because it all felt like too much. Things were coming at me faster than I could handle. It had to STOP.  In childhood I...

Opening to Your Vulnerability

Opening to Your Vulnerability

I find it challenging to make contact with the vulnerable parts of myself. There are parts that are so tender, it’s easier to keep them hidden, and to appear judgmental and angry instead of revealing them.  In doing so, I cut off from my true nature, which is love. ...
