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.

A national education presenter, I am certified Special Education and General Education Teacher, parent trainer, and ministerial counselor. I also hold licensure in a health-related modality. I completed a masters in Exceptional Student Education; my doctorate degree is in divinity, and I also completed a 4 year pre-med program with an additional year of doctorate level study in the health sciences. I will receive a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in fall of 2015. My background includes extensive experience as a Parent Effectiveness Trainer, and I hold credentials as a Qualified Professional Parent Educator. I have extensive experience teaching piano and dance, as well as tutoring college from undergraduate to graduate level. The sum total of my experiences, education and life have left me with a tender heart for children. Their curiosity, innocence, and special gifts can leave them vulnerable in unusual ways, and we need to handle them with kid gloves so that their innocence and inner beauty are preserved as they grow into adulthood.
