This is for parents or guardians who need guidance in:
Finding effective ways to support the social-emotional needs of your child.
Finding alternative ways to address social-emotional/ behavioral difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, aggression, defiance, and sibling rivalry.
Developing a plan to manage transitions, hardship, loss, or a crisis.
Establishing self-care practices to manage stress and cultivate joy.
I teach educators, organizations, and parents how to empower Black and Latinx/Hispanic youth with the social-emotional tools needed to help them navigate and thrive in the world. As a consultant, I use my extensive knowledge in mental health, behavioral analysis, and social-emotional learning to help you develop and implement alternative solutions for you and the child.
