I’m a parent and parent coach, a psychotherapist, educator and writer. I have a passion for helping parents better understand their parent-child relationship. I have a Master’s in Adolescent Psychology (with a focus on creativity, development and identity formation) and a second Masters in Mental Health Counseling (with a focus on Expressive Therapy).
