  • Aggression, counter-will, rupture, and repair

  • Seeing beneath childhood behavior to the feelings and needs that need support

  • The relevance of parental/caregiver growth and self awareness

  • Working with stress and overwhelm through meditation and mindfulness

  • Setting developmentally appropriate limits with compassion and confidence

  • Shifting the adult/child dynamic from control to supportive connection

  • Experiences and effects of trauma, loss and resilience

  • Age appropriate approaches to challenging conversations

She is a certified Montessori Teacher, has completed 3 years of Somatic Experiencing Trauma Training and has been trained in Mediation, Motivational Interviewing and Parenting Coordination.

"Our children come in with flashlights and magnifying glasses, asking us to tend to our most tender and underdeveloped parts, so that we can show up for and with them as whole, sound mirrors to their developing selves. When we think about becoming parents, this is rarely what is spoken or thought about. The brave work of tending to these places in ourselves often happens in private and is coupled with shame and a delusional sense that it should be easier or others know innately how to do this with more grace."
