I consult with professionals and organizations to heal the children and families they serve. My current work involves promoting resilience for families, healthcare entities, schools, businesses and individuals. I consult with healthcare leaders, teachers and businesses that provide systems of care for children.
My workshops for parents and professionals blend scripts, best practices, and skill sets that mix humor and compassion with knowledge. Teacher to parent, provider to family, parent to child – each partnership creates a village of resilience for children.
I train professionals how to meaningfully connect with children and families, which re-energizes them and prevents burnout. I create curriculum for professionals around the importance of secure relationships – meaning unconditional love, healthy attachments and positive discipline – which transforms their practice and creates more resilient children.
