It is my belief that helping parents to feel compassion for themselves and their own childhood experiences is fundamental to enabling them to fully extend these qualities to their children. When parents gain an understanding of their own past and how it informs the way they interact with their children, they are better able to be the parents they aspire to be. Helping parents better attune to their children and repair any ruptures allows them to raise emotionally healthy children.

I enjoy helping people get to know themselves better, understand the developmental roots of their struggles and learn to overcome obstacles that are preventing them from attaining their personal goals.
