Consulting

Every child has her own unique pace of social and emotional development, which is nurtured by her parents and caregivers. However, there are milestones in children’s social and emotional development, which are usually accomplished during specific age ranges.

I am an early childhood mental health consultant currently contracted with South Shore Community Action (Head Start) I am a professional licensed mental health counselor who also has knowledge, and experience related to working with young children (birth to five) and their families.

I have led several workshops ranging in subjects:

  • Bully Free Parent Strategies
  • Developmental Milestones in Children and Adolescents
  • Wellness Seminar (How to promote Self Care)
  • How to Cope with Challenging Behaviors
As an early childhood mental health consultant I promote healthy growth in young children’s social and emotional development by guiding and supporting the caregivers and parent’s in the child’s life to recognize, understand and support social and emotional development. I am able to achieve this by having a firm grasp of social and emotional milestones and I support strategies and am confident and competent in modeling and coaching others to use similar practices. I can help identify and work in partnership with families and caregivers to remediate problems that surface. By understanding the characteristics of development and what is typical for children at different ages, I can help families, caregivers, and teachers nurture each child’s growth. I also assure worried parents that certain behaviors are a normal part of growing up.

Alternatively, I am able to recognize and respond sensitively to any potential concerns regarding a child’s social and emotional development. When problems arise, I am a valuable resource for children and families.
