Child Life Services for Families and Communities

Bringing up healthy and well-behaved kids seems impossible.

Everyone has their ideas regarding Parenting, and they’re certainly happy to hand out advice and book recommendations, but you’re still the one waking up with spaghetti in your hair.

(Okay, let’s get real. You didn’t read the darn books, but who has the time when there are literally naked humans greased with Bolognese, bobsledding across the linoleum?)

Auntie Ida swears by the wooden spoon while your mom just chuckles softly to herself – meanwhile, you’re about to burst into tears. It feels like you’ll never be one of those confident parents.

It feels like there are a million ways to mess your kids up.

You feel other people judging the way you handle your kids. (No, you’re probably not the mom coming right from yoga who also brought extra orange slices for the whole team. But you’re trying!)

There’s no such thing as a perfect parent. You’re an intelligent, educated person. You know this. But when you look at that beaming face of your baby, how could you want to be anything less?

It feels like the rules are shifting every day. There are so many conflicting perspectives on the right way to raise a family. It’s hard to know what information to trust.

It’s time for someone who’ll meet your family’s unique needs!

Using the foundational tools of education, planning, and practice, we’ll meet your kids where they need support and give them the tools to thrive.

As a certified Child Life specialist, I bring the knowledge and experience in child-rearing that isn’t taught in parenting class. (Oh yeah. Parenting class still isn’t a thing, so thank goodness I’m here, right?)

Together, we’ll develop a joint strategy as to how you want to parent your child.

Our process is adapted to your family.

You’ll find peace of mind even when things get hard and crazy because you’ve built a solid foundation that your kids will rely upon.

By assessing what’s already working (don’t worry, there’s a lot) and what outcomes you want to see, we’ll create a thorough plan that is unique to your family. (And that you can stick to when the spaghetti hits the wall.)

Confident Parenting IS within your grasp!

Now’s the time to get started on raising your kids with confidence. The sooner they see you leading the family with strength, the sooner they’ll begin changing alongside you.
