"I work with parents to facilitate a closer,
more loving relationship with their children."
Managing the range of parenting responsibilities
such as academics, socialization, recreation, and enjoyment of family time together can be overwhelming to say the least! One
way to create more success and enjoyment for ourselves as parents is to focus on the
single responsibility that overarches all others - the responsibility to create a meaningful
relationship with our children.
Everyday parenting activities such as helping with homework or driving to soccer games
and dance classes can become opportunities to create closeness, identity and meaning in
our lives. Learning to be more personal and open in all of our relationships eases the demands of family life and creates a place where both adults and children can grow.
I focus on supporting parents to facilitate a closer,
more loving relationship with their children through the following avenues:
For Parents: Making parents aware of their children's cognitive development which can enhance their ability to engage constructively and successfully with their child;
For Parenting Partners: Improving the
meaningfulness of this precious relationship while they care and rear their children;
For Families: Examining family relational patterns which can support more
conscious choice in social interaction so that unproductive patterns need not be
For Children: Fun programs that offer a better sense of self with opportunities to gain poise, confidence, and respect for themselves and others.
