Support for Parents with Unique Needs
I love working with families who don't fit the traditional family mold, including blended families, divorced couples who are co-parenting, single parents, and LGBT families. I can work with parents from out of the Santa Barbara area either over the phone or during a visit to Santa Barbara. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are a parent in need of support.
Parents in Recovery from Drugs and Alcohol
In 2008, I developed a parent education program at a non-profit residential recovery program for women in Santa Barbara, California. Through my work there, I developed an understanding of the issues faced by parents and children who have lived with addiction. I enjoy working with parents who are in any stage of recovery from drugs and alcohol.
High Risk Parents
Through my work with mothers in early recovery, I have developed a parenting curriculum for parents whose children have been removed from their custody by the State of California. This curriculum has been approved by Child Welfare Services and meets the parent education requirement for mothers beginning the process of reunifying with their children.
