What if I told you that raising confident, cooperative, kind kids could be fostered not by changing your children, but by changing your own perceptions and parenting habits?
I believe this is the key to creating a strong foundation for the kind of healthy childhood that leads to emotional wellbeing and meaningful relationships throughout life. No matter where you are on your parenting journey — from pregnancy to the adult years — I've seen how trust, respect and cooperation can be your reality.
I'm here to help you identify the underlying causes for those stressful, chaotic parenting days... and find the balance and contentment your family is seeking.
Even when they engage in behaviors that seem to undermine that connection. Our job as parents is to look past the behavior and connect with the drive, the emotion, the part of them that wants to be seen as unconditionally lovable. In my experience as a clinical psychologist, I have collected a lot of clinical knowledge, scientific theories, and current research that I call upon in my work with parents and families.
But my greatest education has been in becoming a mother to my own two children. The warmth, patience, and creative problem solving that I have cultivated is my guiding force in my work. No matter what, I am here to help you not feel alone, to have support and guidance in working through it. To find a new way of connecting with your child and supporting them to be authentic, independent, confident, and kind.
