I am passionate about helping children feel safe, loved and connected in their families. 

Bonding and connection matter. They build the foundation from a young age for how a person will navigate the world for the rest of their life. 

Studies say that bonding is founded on "nonverbal emotional communication". That means that when children look at photographs of themselves with their parents and they see positive emotions they are deepening that bond, that feeling of safety, love and connection. Their sense of worthiness deepens, they learn to value themselves, they know they have a group where they belong, their loneliness dissipates, and their relationships grow stronger. 

Loneliness kills more people than smoking a pack of cigarettes a day or obesity. Think about it.

Let's give the gift of connection to your children. It is important for who they are becoming and it will have a positive effect on their entire future.

In the absence of love and belonging there will always be suffering [but] those who have a sense of love and belonging are those who have a belief that they are worthy of love and belonging.
