Parenting toddlers to preschoolers? Our cutting edge approach will turn "terrible two's" into "terrific two's & three's". We teach how to develop tools and skills that make parenting the little ones feel joyful and fun. Don't waste your little one's early childhood struggling with their behavior and "no" attitude. Learn how to move them beyond the "no" and into the "Go!". Simple, effective, and powerful techniques are based on brain-based approaches to child rearing and early child development. These skills easily support growth into elementary and middle school years and teenage years.
My greatest wisdom came through my roles as Mother, Therapeutic Caretaker, and Grandparent. As a Clinical Mental Health Counselor and former Exceptional Student Educator, I have an integrated understanding of the brain-based, developmental, emotional, and physical aspects of raising healthy, happy children! As a Teacher and Parent Trainer, I love to share ways to promote children's thriving by using cutting-edge and evidence-based strategies that honor each child's learning style and interests in the world.
