Area(s) of expertise: Parenting and Child Devlopment Expert
Summary of expertise:
I have over 30 years of experience working directly as a therapist,consultant and coach with children, parents, and schools. I am a sought after public speaker, giving over 30 seminars a year. I speak at schools for parents or teachers, at companies, and for religious and community groups. A few of my most popular seminars are: Adolescent Psychology- The Parent Version, Sexting and Texting, Drinking and Drugs-What's a Parent To Do, and Positive Parenting.I have been teaching Child Development and Psychology Of Families to undergraduates at Curry College for over 20 years, and in the past taught Master level graduate students at Lesley University. I am high energy and am known for my unique style of "performing" at my speaking engagements. Infotainment and learning to "parent with a wink" is my calling card. Helping parents to laugh at themselves and at the situations that plague them, give them the objectivity that good parenting requires.
