About

“My passion is enabling children and parents to communicate in positive ways to create more Peaceful Interactions.  I encourage parents to perceive their child’s behavior in a new way, and to understand what their child is trying to communicate through their actions, and to improve parents’ own self-awareness.  Children learn strategies to improve self-confidence and independence.  Through a team approach, I help facilitate a positive home-school connection that is vital to their child’s success, and help parents to embrace their time with their children.”
