I get it! Are you dealing with troubling behaviors? Or, your child not listening to you and being defiant and disrespectful? Does your child have high levels of hyperactivity and regular “meltdowns” that make day to day life very difficult, if not impossible?

I offer a highly personalized set of interventions tailored to your family's unique needs. You can expect to gain insight into behavior patterns in your child and foster more connection and cooperation. Learn to take charge in a natural alpha way and increase respect and dignity at home. Experience an increase in emotional awareness and well being of your child. Learn to create a family flow for the day to day that becomes a sanctuary from a busy life. Regain hope, enjoy your precious family time and be the parent you long to be!

I offer insight and very practical tools based on 24 years of experience as an educator and mental health provider. I began my career as a student of child development in the Montessori method. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a bachelor's in History in 2007 and with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology in 2015. I have served children and families since 1995. I draw from interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, and attachment approaches.

Techniques I Use


  • Play Therapy  External link

    I get it! I get what it’s like to parent a child who suffers with frustration, is having big meltdowns and experiencing difficulty at home or school. Learn to transform difficulty into cooperation. And, help soothe meltdowns into connection, and pivot from frustration to learning!

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    Empowerment does not mean being calm and centered all the time. But, rather being aware of emotional and body states and staying connected to yourself in the midst of it all! I can help you cue into what is happening and what your nervous system and emotions are trying to tell you.

Issues I Treat


  • Parenting External link

    Yikes! Parenting is not meant to be this hard, I promise!

  • Divorce External link

    Divorce can be the best thing that happens for a child! It can mean the end of open and constant hostilities. Learn to assure that competing attachments are avoided and your child can thrive in her new home settings.

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    Children and teens are not mini-adults. They are on a learning and self-discovery path that is unique and can be hard to understand. We will take a look at the developmental needs of your child or teen and how to foster health and independence.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety in children can look like tantrums, demanding behavior and meltdowns. Dealing with the root problem of anxiety can alleviate these otherwise baffling behaviors.

  • ADHD External link

    I understand the frustrations of ADHD that make day to day activities and relationships a struggle. ADHD symptoms can sabotage your best efforts to raise a happy family! Reconnect to your highest intentions and become your child’s best bet to thrive!
