Social Work degreed professional. I have spent my life working with others to improve their life experience. When I became a parent I discovered I was REALLY good at it. I have the ability to turn everyday activities in to learning games and I raised a genius on my own. Recent work with a client parent of a toddler reminded me how much I enjoy children.

I know children feel safest when they know what to expect and stability is vital. Most importantly I know that growing up can be both a frustrating, and magical experience. I have an amazing, yet difficult to explain, ability to tune in to what's going on with the child and understand Read more the feelings behind the behaviors.
