With compassion, commitment, and the expertise of an educator, I empower parents with powerful and practical tools so you can be the parents you want to be.

You'd think that having a BA in psychology, a Masters Degree in Education, 3 teaching credentials and almost 10 years as a teacher would have been more than enough training when I became a parent for the 1st time.
Well, haha, the joke was on me. I was shocked at how hard it was to be a parent.
I did rely on my education and experience to ease the transition to parenthood, but no amount of study prepared me for the jolt I felt the first time my amazing child told me, "No!"
So I get it.
We parents are intelligent, educated adults. How is it that we run companies, departments & households, and get blindsided by a child?
The truth is our kids can be tough contenders for our patience and undermine our confidence as being competent adults.
I am here to tell you,
you can do this. You have the edge as The Parent and I help you find it.
Expertise + Compassion = Success
Families come in many forms and structures. Parents have diverse priorities and hold distinct values. That is why a comprehensive understanding of each family is required to determine the strategies that best meet your needs and desires. I do this by developing a customized action plan through in-person visits, video conferencing, and phone consultations.
Raising children is emotional. My focus is with you, the parents, guardians, grandparents, and caregivers of the complex children in your charge. By observing and asking questions, I can see situations right as they are happening, that may be blocked to you by the emotion and tension of a particular circumstance. My job is to interpret what is happening and then set up a toolbox for you to use to create the family life you want.
