I have been caring for children and families for 20 years. I am originally a New Yorker who transplanted to Boulder when my daughter was five months old. She is now 14 and we live in a marvelous co-housing community in Lafayette. I am continually amazed at my good fortune to have landed in the perfect place to beautifully raise my child - and those of others! I am a solo parent, and have had to dig deeply into my psychic recesses to root out the conditioned ideas and knee jerk responses that come barreling to the surface when one is faced with the formidable task of parenting a young child. Added to my prior knowledge of child development and consequent studies in prenatal psychology and love-based parenting paradigms, I can be a huge resource to the families I work with, having developed tender compassion for and deep undertanding of both child AND parent behaviors!
