Q&A

Q: What drew you into working with parents-to-be?

A: I am a problem solver, an empathetic listener, & a generations changer. I started off working in early special education. I realized that the best way to prevent the developmental challenges that we can control is to support parents EARLY in their journey: helping parents to prepare for their baby, manage stress & build resilient relationships.

Q: What's your favorite past client story?

A: “What we appreciated most was how unscripted yet structured it was… Our portfolio of tools and strategies for a healthier and happier marriage and family relationship grew with every session. We felt heard, understood and respected throughout, not stuffed into some cookie cutter program, but treated to a really individualized and tailored process."

Q: What's your top piece of advice for an expectant mom?

A: If you have a relationship worth keeping, journal together about what kind of parents you want to be. Write it down and keep it handy. You're going to change your mind over time. But if you know your partner's HEART, it will be easier to trust and support them when they are exhausted and having a bad day.

Q: What are your certifications and trainings?

A: M.A. Early Childhood Special Education and clear teaching credential. Advanced transdisciplinary infant family mental health practitioner. Gottman Bringing Baby Home educator and trainer. Gottman Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work leader. Certified educator of infant massage. Sleep consultant.

Q: What locations or areas do you serve?

A: I work virtually, so I serve anyone whose schedule works with mine and is available by Zoom.
