My passion in life is to help children and families grow together in a healthy and fulfilling way.
I have worked with families facing a variety of challenges for the past 30 years, including families with children with special health care and learning needs, families going through major transitions such as divorce or death of a family member, and families facing drug and alcohol abuse.
I value families as the most qualified experts on a team working to find the support needed to enhance growth and well-being of their children.
I also work with families and the professional team members to understand the mpact of interrupted development on growth and well-being.
Children tell us how well they are doing through their behavior, and understanding this pattern of communication helps parents, siblings, relatives, and teachers understand how to support positive behavior and listen to behavioral challenges. The best care comes from families working with specialists to enhance functioning, communication, and success across the life span.
No one specialist knows a child or a family better than the family, or has all the answers, but rather, works best when working as a team. And this includes the child and the family members. Each child is an individual, deserving individual care and individual experiences that lead to a fulfilling life.
