“Our son was really struggling with regulating himself and we were struggling with knowing how to help. We sought help from Ally and entered into a true healing process for our little guy, and we watched him blossom before our eyes.”

Message to Parents & Families
Every parent wants to provide a rich environment in which their child can play, explore, grow and thrive. But it can be hard, tiring, and confusing work!
Maybe things haven’t gone the way you thought they would. It may be that your child’s angry outbursts, anxiety, or challenges at school are driving you to seek support.
Maybe you are a foster or adoptive parent, hoping to provide healing for a child who has experienced trauma. The parenting journey can be lonely and anxiety-producing at times.
I work with parents and children to build bridges and lasting connections. I will help you understand your child’s confusing behaviors, empower you to be your child’s emotional guide, and help you build effective patterns of communicating and relating to one another.
If you want to build meaningful connections with your child and move beyond feeling stuck in how to help your child, give me a call today.
