Thank you for visiting! I am the mama of 2 boys, aspiring author, and a certified Mad2Glad Parent Coach. I have spent the past 10 years working directly with children and families using play-based, relationship centered strategies. Being the parent of a neurodivergent little human, I have a passion for working with families of children with disabilities with complex communication or behavioral challenges. My work focuses on making complex strategies/concepts more accessible to children and families.
If you have ever read a parenting book and thought: "that is a great idea, but how do I make it work for my family?" that is where I come in!
I enjoy swimming, hula hooping, and I drink far too much coffee. My goal for the blog is to share openly and honestly about my journey both as a parent and as a children’s book writer. You can expect posts with ideas, tips, tools, books, activities, and resources related to social and emotional development. Will there be an occasional poem? Maybe. Will there be Mister Rogers’ quotes? Absolutely.
