Parenting

 for children zero to ten

Parenting can be joyful, perplexing, exhausting and overwhelming; on a good day. When it gets tough, when a child or parent is struggling emotionally or behaviorally, negative interactions can become entrenched.  There are plenty of excellent parenting books on how to effect positive changes, but what parent has the time to read? I’ve met many parents who say they know exactly what they should be doing, but can’t find their way to make it happen.

As a parent of twins I understand the frustrations parents encounter and how difficult it can be to want change and yet feel unable to do so. With warmth and compassion, I offer families my reflections, guidance and ideas.  I provide insight into the emotional life children and help develop strategies that unwind negative patterns of relating, establish positive parent-child interactions, and help regulate everyone’s emotions.
