Parenting intervention and consultation
  • Parenting young children with challenging behavior such as tantrums,
    aggression, defiance, homework struggles, sibling conflict, sleep issues,
    and difficulties following daily routines. (Sometimes just getting out the
    door in the morning is a victory.)
  • I provide evidence-based parenting interventions. I am trained in multiple
    behavioral parent training programs including PCIT and PMT.  Most of the
    families I work with have a child with ADHD and behavior problems, many
    of whom have co-occurring social, emotional, and developmental issues.
  • Parenting is incredibly hard and it hits close to the heart. I help parents to
    set effective limits while maintaining close parent-child relationships. In
    addition to techniques, this also requires self-care and self-compassion.
