Parenting is a job that no one should do alone. Especially if you are raising a child who is highly sensitive, on the autism spectrum, or has ADD/ADHD. I get it. As a parent of two children with various labels, I know the challenges & obstacles we often encounter (and what it takes to rise above them). Over the past 20+ years working with children & families worldwide, I have learned how to mindfully approach these challenges to create better outcomes for our children and us. The online programs I offer are intended to make parenting neurodivergent children easier and more fun.

I want you to be equipped with the knowledge & a deeper understanding of the reasons behind your child's behaviors, so you can confidently support their social & emotional growth. Also, I want to give you the tools to help your child (and you) manage intense emotions and have more patience through challenging moments. I hope to have the opportunity to support you on your parenting journey. 

My children have inspired me to create this type of support for parents. As my son puts it, "parents are the keys to everything, and your emotional state (stressed, happy, joyful, worried, sad) impacts us (children)." You will be amazed to see how much can change within the family when you begin the journey of mindfully caring for both yourself and your children, live with less stress, and discover parenting strategies that meet the unique needs of neurodivergent individuals.
