Christy Keating, J.D.

Licensed Attorney // Certified Parent Coach® // Owner and Educator, Savvy Parents Safe Kids

Christy Keating is the owner of The Heartful Parent Collective, which includes Savvy Parents Safe Kids, The Heartful Parent, and The Heartful Parent Academy.
As a licensed attorney, Christy spent nearly twenty years as a felony prosecutor in the King County Prosecutor’s Office in Seattle, where she spent the latter part of her career specializing in the prosecution of sexually violent predators. Immersed in the world of sexual assault and child sexual abuse, Christy developed a deep understanding and expertise in predatory tactics and abuse/assault prevention strategies. She now enjoys educating parents, caregivers, educators, and other professionals so as to help stop these problems before they happen, rather than addressing them after the fact.
In addition to being a licensed attorney, Christy is a certified parent coach® through the Parent Coach Institute (credentialed through Seattle Pacific University), a certified positive discipline instructor, a certified gottman educator, and has completed the professionals intensive through Hand in Hand Parenting. She is also a long-time leader and speaker at the Program for Early Parent Support in Seattle, and a public speaker and group facilitator with more than 20 years of experience. Christy is energized by helping parents find more love, joy, and connection in their families and with their children by helping them discover newfound energy in their parenting, develop an appreciation for what they have and who they are, and create sustainable ways to achieve their vision or dream for their family.
Christy lives in the greater Seattle area with her husband of almost 15 years, their two amazing daughters, and a small bevy of animals.
