MISSION

With compassion, commitment, and the expertise of an educator, The Parental Edge empowers parents  to maximize the harmony in their household.

MY APPROACH

Support, Structure, Solutions

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.
