I hope you are doing well and staying safe during these uncertain times. For over 25 years, it has been an honor and privilege to foster & enhance success for thousands of families. Our goals are to educate, support & inspire parents, educators, children, teens & adults, by facilitating unique programs and services that promote healthy relationships and thriving futures.
Parenting is the most important job of your life & doesn’t come with an owner’s manual. Parenting all children & teens, especially those with ADHD, learning differences, mild ASD, oppositional defiance, mood, adoption & attachment disorders requires positive, mindful, connective approaches.
It is especially difficult when your child is struggling with angry outbursts, impulsivity, anxiety, depression, oppositionality, defiance, stress & social problems. In each of these situations, it is a normal reaction for you to feel overwhelmed and helpless when your best efforts don’t help your child feel or behave better.
After months of social distancing, working at home, remote learning, no camp, play dates, group activities, cancelled vacations & re-entry back-to-school, there is no doubt that the present covid-19 situation is enhancing challenging home issues.
Many parents, children & adolescents have been feeling anxious, sad, lonely, angry withdrawn and may exhibit behavioral challenges. While some children may appear to be fine, you as parents worry about their long-term social & educational future.
I am here to help you & look forward to enriching and improving your family life. You may be struggling, but remember, during this time, you are also strong & resilient!
Are you ready for help to promote happy, healthy, resilient children & adolescents and create peaceful, loving homes?
