Meet our team
I began my career in social work facilitating parenting classes for at-risk communities in the greater Salt Lake and Park City area. Research has shown that strong parent-child bonding is one of the most important protective factors for decreasing delinquency, substance abuse, child abuse, and negative peer influences on children. Protective factors work to increase safety, emotional well-being, build strong family relationships, and promote healthy social connections. I have been facilitating and teaching positive parenting practices for over 25 years. I am passionate about relationships, especially those between parents and children. One of the best ways to build resiliency, in both yourself and your child(ren), is to focus on the 4 Pillars of Wellness which include Health, Home, Community, and Purpose. I’m looking forward to sharing ways to decrease stress, identify emotions, make healthy connections with your child(ren), and to build strong families. My wellness classes will explore these pillars and provide you with knowledge, new skills, home practice exercises, and time to talk with other parents about their experiences with parenting and self-care.
