I'm a parent coach, educator and writer. I have a passion for helping parents better understand their parent child relationship.
I was born to a Bostonian father and a British mother whose lives could not have been more different. They raised five children and were married for almost 55 years. I am their middle child.
I am the mother of four children who are now between the ages of 22-30 and have been married 31 years. For 10 years, we homeschooled our kids while living on a mountaintop in Central Vermont. We lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts for nine years before returning full-time to Vermont because we love the freedom and space Vermont offers.
I have a Master's in Adolescent Psychology (with a focus on creativity, development and identity formation) and a second Masters in Mental Health Counseling (with a focus on Expressive Therapy). A turning point in my education came when I trained in Internal Family Systems model (IFS) developed by Richard Schwartz. IFS plays a significant role in Parenting You.
