I play with kids, when they're struggling I restore their laughter!!
I’m here to help your child discover their potential so they can achieve what you've always known was possible.
There is no greater joy in life than to hear the sweet innocent laughter of a child; it denotes joy, love, purity and peace. It is my goal to evoke laughter in every child that crosses my path. Children are innocent beings brought into a world they must learn to understand, navigate and find their place. This can be exciting, rewarding and too often challenging and difficult.
As a mom of three beautiful children of my own, I know the ups and downs of parenting. I have first-handedly experienced the high highs when accomplishments’ are celebrated and the low lows when disappointment and tragedy strikes. Children are our greatest joy AND our greatest heartache. I have learned it ALL comes as part of the experience we call life; where we gain some control is in learning to find the balance.
Children live to explore and experiment, they learn through doing. Words and verbal reasoning come later in life; at a young age behavior, mood and temper are their communication. Play is a child's language and toys are their words. If their environment is not safe and conducive to exploration then a child will begin to struggle. The key is in unlocking the cause of the struggle, developing an understanding of feelings, and helping the child to appropriately communicate their feelings.
I love the challenge of interpreting a child's communication, helping them uncover their frustrations and thus guiding me to understanding their confusion and fears. Together we can then tame the fears, redirect the frustration and rediscover their laughter.
