I am so glad you are reaching out for support. Early childhood is an emotion-filled time matched with parents varying energy levels and skillsets. If you find yourself struggling, worrying, or erupting over recurring behavioral challenges from your child or your own self-doubt let me help. A private consult consists of a one hour Zoom or phone call. We will cover specific questions to convey the personality and essence of both the child and the parents. Then we will shift to dissecting the disruptive patterns. All of this information will dictate the tailored strategies created to shift challenging behaviors. We will cover a lot of ground during our session, please make sure to eat and be hydrated beforehand. Please bring a notepad! *Evening appointments are available
Of course! I don’t mean that in a progressive, “I’m secretly trying to convert your husband to the opposite end of the spectrum” sort of way. I believe men provide invaluable gifts to their children through their own speech patterns, rhythms, and perspective. I find the role of Dad’s get undermined a bit by current practices. My goal is to elevate the intention and the approach while allowing fathers and mothers more clarity in day to day practices.
Absolutely, I was a classroom teacher for many years as well as Mentor Teacher with many years of teacher training experience. I have worked in LAUSD to Progressive settings. I am well versed in RIE, Reggio, Constructivism as well as Common Core. I can help you understand, implement or create strategies which enhance your child’s school experience.
While I cannot provide a diagnosis I can help develop parenting techniques to alleviate particular behaviors. If necessary I will help you seek greater support and provide strategic planning with the whole family in mind should specific therapies, testing or accommodations be needed.
I am fiercely passionate about my work with children and families. I haven’t met a kid who has shocked me or stumped me. However you describe your child at their worst, I will most likely use the term “Spicy” and leave you with a wealth of strategies to “out spicy” your jalapeño!
My work experience includes collaborations with family makeups which include biological children, families by adoption, same-sex parents and blended families. I am keenly aware of twin dynamics and the nuances at play. Quirky children, highly gifted, twice exceptional, ADD, ADHD, and Nemaline Myopathy are just a few challenges and adventures I have had the honor of coaching.
Please don’t hesitate to call. I am here to guide families with challenges big or small.
