While parenting is a joyful and rewarding journey, it can also be a challenging and perplexing one.
When my son was a baby, I was fortunate to discover RIE®. The tenets of RIE® completely changed my understanding of babies and my approach to parenting. Magda Gerber, RIE’s Founding Director, saw babies as unique and competent human beings, from the beginnings of their lives, rather than as cute, basically helpless, people. She showed parents how to create relationships with babies built on mutual respect. When you see your infant with new eyes, life with your baby becomes easier and a lot more enjoyable.
My work with each private client is completely customized – tailored to the specific needs of you, your children, and your staff. Your personalized program can include private consultations in your home or via Skype, individualized notes and resources, and training for those who are interacting on a regular basis with your children.
I specialize in guiding individuals, couples, families, and caregivers at each stage of a young child’s life:
• pregnancy (including preparing the home)
• infancy (including helping siblings adjust to the new arrival)
• toddlerhood (including addressing sleep and other behavior issues)
If this sounds like something that would help you feel more confident as a parent and create a more peaceful environment in your home, I’d be happy to schedule time to talk with you to see if we’re a good match and to see how I can be of service.
