SUPPORT FOR YOUR WHOLE FAMILY

 

 

Since 2018, I’ve helped hundreds of children, teens & parents manage stress, improve connection & communication and find positive, respectful solutions to challenges at home.

The most common issues I can help your family with:

  • Big emotions, tantrums & meltdowns

  • Understanding & addressing neurodivergent behaviors

  • Surviving screen-time struggles

  • Boundary setting & limits

  • Managing anxiety & stress

  • Building self-esteem & autonomy

  • Minimizing sibling rivalry & conflict

  • Navigating friend drama & bullying

  • Discussions about puberty & romantic relationships

  • More meaningful & connected family experiences

If you’re ready to do the work, want to build strong relationships with your kids & change the vibes in your home, reach out!

WHEN YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS, THE THINGS YOU LOOK AT CHANGE

I show grown-ups how to "speak kid" again. This unique perspective can help you understand your child's point of view, put their behavior in context, identify what’s really going on underneath the surface & devise ways for you to more effectively communicate. 

Even if you read all the parenting books, follow all the social media tips & try all the suggestions… sometimes it takes a personal connection to help you identify triggers, work through options, develop an effective plan & make noticeable changes.

 

GET SUPPORT FROM SOMEONE WHO'S BEEN THERE

I manage up to 12 kids at once, alone in the wilderness, so I know chaos intimately. I deeply understand the frustration, confusion & despair that comes with caregiving. I also know what works (& what doesn’t) when it comes to helping kids manage big feelings, anxiety, sibling rivalry & meltdowns.

 

YOUR CHILD IS NOT THE PROBLEM

“Bad behavior” most commonly reflects the disconnect between a child’s actual skills & the expectations/demands we put on them.

Challenging kids will always look “bad” if they’re pushed past their capacity to respond. This is especially common in neurodivergent children: kids born with brains that think, learn & process information differently. Like me! :)

 

We should be celebrating kids for who they are…  getting curious about their experiences & seeking ways to understand them... not setting unrealistic expectations or devising ways to change them.

  

Let the ultimate transformation begin:

  • Straightforward, realistic & easy-to-implement strategies for your family’s social, emotional & spiritual growth

  • Calm, confident boundaries (without rewards, punishments or threats)

  • Focus on curiosity, connection & respectful communication

  • Encouragement, guidance, accountability & support

  • Careful listening, powerful questions & authentic questions

  • Family Support serves to encourage behavior & lifestyle changes to incorporate new skills

  • Psychotherapy is a health service that includes mental health practitioners with training & experience in diagnosing & treating emotional & psychological problems

  • Family Support DOES NOT include psychotherapy or any other health care service & does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders

  • Family Support works in conjunction with (is NOT a substitute for) counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment and I agree not to use it in place of any form of diagnosis, treatment or therapy

  • I understand that it is my responsibility to get my (& my Child’s) emotional & mental health needs met outside of this program

  • I understand that while this program may also address these needs, this is not its purpose
