Emily works with families helping them decode and understand their children’s behaviors so that they can have a happier and more fulfilling home life. She teaches parents new skills, often including mindfulness training, so that they can approach all different types of situations with knowledge and ease. She can help with a variety of issues including: setting and maintaining boundaries; developing and sticking to routines; typical young child issues of sleeping, tolieting, eating, tantrums, and transitions; dealing with “big” emotions; school avoidance; discipline; anxiety; screen time issues; teaching mindfulness to your children; nurturing intrinsic motivation; identifying “code red” behaviors, and so much more.
Emily writes a bi-weekly blog on a variety of parenting issues and is a mom to two beautiful little boys.
