SUPPORT FOR YOUR WHOLE FAMILY

I help children, teens & parents:

  • Respond to big emotions, tantrums & meltdowns

  • Survive screen-time struggles

  • Set boundaries, limits & consequences

  • Manage anxiety & stress

  • Improve connection & communication

  • Build self-esteem & autonomy

  • Minimize sibling rivalry & conflict

  • Navigate friend drama, bullying & puberty 

  • Master the art of co-regulation: create more meaningful & connected family experiences!

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

I show grown-ups how to "speak kid" again

I 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 strategies for more effective communication in your home. 

Even if you read all the books, follow all the social media tips & try all the suggestions... you probably won't ever get to the root of the problem. Sometimes it takes a conversation with someone on the outside to help you gain perspective & make noticeable, impactful changes. 

GET SUPPORT FROM SOMEONE WHO'S BEEN THERE

I manage up to 12 kids at once, alone in the wilderness, so I intimately understand the chaos, frustration & despair that comes with caregiving. 

 

I also know what works (& what doesn’t) when it comes to helping kids manage big feelings, anxiety & meltdowns.

 

The answer might surprise you:

Instead of devising ways to change a child's behavior, we must first take a good look at our role as the caregiver.

 

When we can see ourselves more clearly, we begin to recognize the reflection in our child's behavior. 

 

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. 

When it comes to a child's emotional reactions, we can't expect them to self-regulate when they don't know how yet. 

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” -Albert Einstein

 

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

My approach is celebrate kids for who they are, get curious about their inner worlds, seek ways to understand them & develop a plan to guide them through turbulence. 

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

  • 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
