Simple, Research-based Parenting Strategies that Work.

When it comes to parenting it's best to keep things simple, practical, and positive. With a deep understanding of child development, and the latest parenting and relationship research, I help families navigate challenging times with confidence, compassion, and connection. 


Children do best when parents or caregivers are warm and loving while setting limits that are firm and consistent. This is called Balanced Parenting and it can be life changing.  

I also look for balance in terms of parenting philosophies. There are so many out there and holding firmly to just one way of parenting can limit your options when things get hard. 

In addition, I believe that parents should not have to lose themselves and their relationships to the demands of parenting. Finding balance for yourself will help you be a more balanced parent and partner.

 Whether you need a few tips for a specific issue or you want to dig a little deeper, you've come to the right place!
