What is a “mindful parent,” exactly? A mindful parent is the one that asks: how do I know that what I am doing is preparing my child mentally and emotionally for an increasingly complex future? How do I optimize the relationship I have with them right now to better ensure they become an adult that is empowered not entitled, self-reliant and compassionate, curious, and competent in a world of increasing artifice? Those are great questions and, luckily, we have the answers. Developmental research has identified ways you can enhance the parent-child relationship to prepare your child for a more secure, autonomous adulthood.
If you want to optimize your parenting, and your child’s social and emotional development, if you want to produce an adult that is better-related to self and others, that will be a creative, collaborative partner in a world that is going to need us all to work together, then I am the therapist for you.
My mission is to provide mindful parents with the data, tools, coaching and insight they need to enhance the parent-child bond. I will help them to integrate transformative neurological, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness concepts into the daily practice of the most important job in the world: being a parent! Let's get started!

The earlier the intervention the better! After all, parenting begins at birth. As a result, though I love to work with all ages, my specialty is children ages 0-7. We now know the first 3-4 months are the most critical for developing the primary attachment circuitry in the brain. To help parents, I have been trained in parent-infant attachment assessment and treatment.
