"Every child is unique. Therefore, in order to help children overcome social, emotional, behavioral, developmental, or academic challenges, it is important that we do not become preoccupied with simply assigning "labels". Rather, the focus needs to be on identifying the child's individual strengths as well as their weaknesses in order to design effective strategies that suit their needs. I have over 20 years of education and experience in the fields of psychology and special education. I've become known in the community as an expert in the field of social emotional development through intensive training and support."

"Do you ever feel alone? Do you feel that there's more to everything than this? I believe that within every person exists enormous power. At some point in all of our lives, we face what I refer to as a "void." The void is the symbolic space we create for whatever is missing in our lives; what we imagine will make us feel complete. We spend massive amounts of energy attempting to fill this void with negative relationships, substances, money, possessions, etc., and yet somehow we still end up feeling empty."

When facing a crisis, our ability to process our emotions and needs becomes key to our capacity to juggle our new "normal" with our mental health intact. Crises also tend to bring up old wounds and traumas and push us into old or unhealthy patterns of coping and managing stress.
