I'm a Portland based Parent Educator and Counselor. I provide unique workshops and parenting strategy sessions.
Have you had to deal with a child getting very frustrated (freaking out!) when asked to turn off or put away their video game, tablet, or smartphone? Parenting in the digital age requires a unique skill set to help our children find a happy balance.
Through my fun workshops on screen time and other topics dealing with childhood behavior, I enjoy sharing great ideas you can implement immediately! For teachers, my presentations are certified through the Oregon Registry and Washington Merit systems for clock hour credit.
I'm also enthusiastic about working individually with divorced or separated parents to develop cooperative + positive co-parenting skills. My office is located in SW Portland.
