I'm a licensed psychologist in Portland, OR. My current work involves promoting resilience for families, healthcare entities, schools, businesses and individuals. I am a keynote speaker, consultant, coach and mentor to families, healthcare leaders, teachers and businesses. I speak and train on local and national levels. I am endorsed in early childhood mental health and pediatric health.
I developed a curriculum called Cards for Connection© created especially for professionals that work with children and families. My work enhances relational health, resilience through relationships and social emotional capacity by training professionals that impact the lives of children.
I'm excited to release my first published book in the spring of 2024 with the American Academy of Pediatrics!

My current work involves promoting resilience for families, healthcare entities, schools, businesses and individuals. I consult with healthcare leaders and businesses that provide systems of care for children.
I blend scripts, best practices, and skill sets that mix humor and compassion with knowledge to train professionals how to meaningfully connect with children and their families. Curriculum includes the importance of secure relationships – meaning unconditional love, healthy attachments and positive discipline – which transforms their practice and creates more resilient children and families.
