Hi! I'm a pediatric psychologist, parent coach, and Board Certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology.
I am an author, a national speaker, and a contributor for PBS Kids for Parents, PureWow and The Gottman Institute.
I also serve as a board member for the Verywell Review Board.
I help parents who have kids and teens with behavioral and emotional regulation concerns, those diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety, as well as kids/teens who are highly sensitive. I focus on helping parents adjust their mindset about parenting, so they can parent with purpose, grace, and intentionality.
You won't find many resources online about teens that focus on
repairing and redeeming the relationship with them. It may be too cliché, but experience is the best teacher; we just have to know which experience teaches the best lesson. I want parents to approach their parent-teen relationships in a different way and from a completely new perspective. Fighting a never ending battle with your teen doesn't change your teen, nor does it win the war.
It just prolongs it... and destroys the parent-teen relationship.
