In both my personal and professional life, parenting has been one of my primary passions. I have a particular interest in understanding theory and research on how a child's brain is affected by his/her early experiences. I translate this science into informed guidance on how to respond to a child's emotions and needs. Parental response is one of the biggest factors in how a child comes to view themselves and the world.
An adult's own childhood experiences can play a large role in their parenting behaviors. With support, parents can gain insight about the patterns that adversely impact their children, and they can learn alternative parenting techniques that are more loving and effective. The result is a healthier, happier, and better connected family environment.
