About

Parents, these last years has been tough! If your child is having a hard time, you may be wondering if there is more you could do to help. You have reached a point where it's time for specialized professional knowledge so you can stop googling all hours of the night. You would like tools and a workable plan to help you and your sensitive or 'spirited' child thrive. Your family would benefit from the support of someone skilled and compassionate and who knows what it means to be an overwhelmed parent.
I use strengths-based strategies to help parents help their children. I teach parents all about neurodiverse youth and help them problem-solve with respectful strategies. I assist parents in the development of necessary skills to help 'differently wired' children thrive. My approach is warm and understanding of the very real challenges modern parents face.
If your family is having a difficult time, you don't have to figure this out on your own. You are wise to be proactive by reaching out before issues become more significant. If you are interested in parenting with intention while fostering joy & resilience, I invite you to reach out. Please note, I exclusively see parents at this time and not children.

Teva Johnstone's Groups

Neuodiversity Parenting Education

Learn what you need to know about autism, neurodiversity, and respectful parenting practices. Groups are strengths-based, solutions-focused, and use positive psychology coaching. Members will learn how to increase protective factors to foster children's mental health while honoring their own parental wellbeing. Groups are educational and supportive in nature rather than mental health treatment or psychotherapy.
