I’m a licensed clinical psychologist, specializing in psychodynamic and relationship-based approaches in my work with children and families. I’ve studied childhood development, neurobiology and emotional regulation, attachment and respectful parenting practices and many other topics in the field of psychology.
I have a special interest in teaching parents, caregivers, and childcare organizations about how respectful parenting principles can improve the quality of their relationships and cultivate children who are more authentic, confident, independent, and kind.

What resonated most with me is that it’s okay to mess up and it’s okay to not meet our children’s needs all the time. As a first time mom to a very emotional and active 11 month old, it’s been difficult for me to embrace that so thank you for sharing the why behind it. Can’t wait to hear more!
I am so happy to have found this podcast. It makes complex topics easy to follow and is so entertaining. And I love how it’s changed the way I parent. Now that I understand what’s going on in my son’s brain I am so much better at parenting with empathy. Thanks Dr. Sarah - from me and my son!
