About

Do you struggle with what to do to "manage" your child's behavior? Do you find yourself triggered by your child's actions? Are you interested in taking a more peaceful/positive parenting approach, but aren't sure how to make it work with your child? As a Registered Play Therapist with over 20 years of working with children and families, I specialize in helping overwhelmed parents learn strategies to lovingly set limits, build connection, and heal intergenerational wounds that can impact parenting.
I specialize in peaceful and relationship-based parenting. My approach is rooted in attachment, play therapy, mindfulness, and compassion. I am trained in EMDR, which can be an effective way to process the triggers that come up for you as a parent.
Parenting in and of itself is so hard. Parenting a child with unique needs can feel like an endless struggle. ​I come to my work with parents from a place of empathy, compassion, and above all - absolute imperfection.
