Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Practitioner

Did you know that one million neural connections are forming every second in the brain of a child 0 – 3 years old? The early years of children's lives are critical for their social, emotional, and cognitive development and overall mental health.

Key aspects to promoting optimal mental health in the first five years are attachment, caregiver attunement and responsiveness, social/emotional development, early stimulation, consistency and predictability, cultural sensitivity, parent mental health, play, holistic health, and early intervention if trauma, illness, or injury has harmed the child. Early experiences profoundly shape a child's mental health, laying the foundation for lifelong well-being and resilience.

As a licensed professional counselor with a Ph.D. in Infant and Early Childhood Development, I am well-equipped to aid your family with the challenges you may face. Feel free to contact me for a free 30-minute initial consultation.

An excellent resource I often suggest to parents/caregivers is Harvard University's Center on the Developing Child resources page: developingchild.harvard.edu/resources/         


Infant and Early Childhood Specialist - Parent Support

New parents often experience a range of mental health challenges as they navigate the significant life changes associated with parenthood. Common challenges include postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, baby blues, adjustment issues, self-pressure or perfectionism, strains on relationships, loneliness and isolation, guilt, shame, lack of sleep, and changes in identity.

Addressing these challenges involves a blend of social support, self-care, communication with partners, and seeking professional help when needed. Realistic expectations and understanding that it is okay to ask for help can significantly support the mental health of new and expecting parents. With years of experience, I am ready to help you attain the personal and family goals you seek.


Circle of Security Parenting Certified Facilitator

The Circle of Security Parenting (COSP) program enriches the parent-child relationship by providing a model for understanding and responding to your children's emotional needs. The course is based on attachment theory, which stresses the importance of a secure emotional bond between children and their caregivers. The security of a child's attachment will influence relationship patterns throughout the child's life. The program provides a valuable framework for promoting a secure and nurturing environment for children to thrive emotionally and socially, which fosters optimal overall development.

In this 8-week program, parents/caregivers will gain insights into their child's emotional needs, strengthen the relationship with their child, and develop practical parenting skills. While group sessions are encouraged and scheduled regularly for parents to sign up for, parents can also participate in the program individually or as a couple. While the COSP program was created for parents of children 0 – 12, the concepts shared can be applied to relationships across the lifetime. Weekly group meetings are 1.5 hours long, and the cost varies depending on the group size.

Certified Infant Massage Parent Educator

Infant massage provides numerous benefits for both baby and parent. Fostering bonding and attachment, massaging your baby can provide sensory stimulation that not only aids in relaxation and sleep but it can also be helpful for infants who struggle with digestive issues. Studies show that massage promotes overall development, and it has also been shown to improve attunement and communication between baby and parent. Boosting confidence in understanding and responding to your baby's needs, massage offers a positive and enjoyable way for parents to actively engage with their infants in a nurturing way.
