One of the things we don’t learn about in school is how to be a good parent. We typically learn how to parent based on example: how our parents raised us. But what if we want to be a different kind of parent than what we experienced as children?

I have extensive training in attachment-based parenting and bring this perspective to my work with parents. My goal is to form a team with a parent to help the parent figure out how best to meet their child’s needs. I help parents how to turn negative discipline techniques into positive discipline and how to understand what their child’s behavior might mean. It is also my goal to provide empathic support to parents who are struggling.
