I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker - Clinical who specializes in working with families with infants and young children. Guided by the principles of a Developmental, Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based model (DIR®), I help parents understand their child, and themselves, in a way that removes labels and stigmas associated with traditional diagnosis and capitalizes on each person's strengths; all the while continuing to support the identified areas of concern. I have worked with hundreds of families, teachers, and clinicians all over the world. In addition to running an online training program for parents and clinicians and working to complete my PhD in Infant and Early Childhood Development with an Emphasis on Mental Health, I provide training to therapists, teachers, clinicians and families by using video review, phone consultation, clinic and in-home therapy and trainings and group workshops.
