Solutions for Everyday Life with Children





Welcome!  If you are a parent who wants to have a great relationship with your child now and in the future, you've come to the right place.

As a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and Family Counselor with 30+ years of experience, I understand children and I understand families.

Is any of this you?

• You have a child who seems more challenging, quirky, or complicated than other children you know.

• Your child is having sleep problems.

• Your child has challenging ongoing behaviors at home or at school.

• You feel confused about discipline

• Your child is dealing with anxiety or other difficult feelings

Perhaps you have a few parenting questions, or perhaps you have a long list. You aren't looking for a diagnosis. You want expertise, guidance, and support from someone who sees every child as a unique person.

 I meet with families in person in the San Francisco Bay Area and by Skype, Facetime and telephone all over the world.  My approach is flexible to meet your needs. Parents tell me that they see differences after our very first meeting and that a short-term consultation leads to long term results.
