Description

I have been working in the field of childhood trauma with children, families and adults for more than 20 years. I was a treatment foster parent for over 20 years and this lived experience has been the foundation for my work. As the owner of Mind 2 Heart, this business was born out of my passion and commitment to understand how to help children heal those spaces inside of them and embracing neurodiversity. Children need security and commitment to heal. We all heal within relationships, relationships in therapy, in families and in communities.
