Nothing is more important or challenging than parenting. I offer help and hope as a parent coach for support and direction in enhancing your skills, or the deeper assistance of therapy for trauma-affected children. I help to clarify trauma's developmental impact and effect on the danger response system, attachment, self-regulation, and competency. I encourage attachment through helping you and your child with attunement, attentiveness, emotion control, consistency, and using routines and rituals. I help parents understand and deal with extreme behaviors, such as lying, stealing, food-hoarding, self-mutilation, and aggression.
