Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

Applied Developmental Neuroscience & Psycho-education for Relationship Repair & Healing

  • Shift from rewards and punishments to cooperation and respect.
  • Apply the latest brain science to the first 7 years of life.
  • Learn how healthy attachment creates sustainable relationships.
  • Learn how to interpret behavior as communication of underlying needs and feelings.
  • Learn how to repair hurts and move forward with a stress history.
  • Discover how our stories affect our ability to balance guidance and boundaries.
  • Develop your self-awareness to expand your window of tolerance and build more authentic relationships.

Rebel Shift Childhood offers online courses, support groups, mini-workshops, and one-on-one coaching and consulting, tailored to support the individual needs of each person, each family, and each learning environment.


Combining compassionate communication and neuropsychology with a trauma-sensitive lens, I utilize my emotional interpreting skills, intuition, and years of practice to uncover the roots of troubling and/or confusing behaviors. My intimate approach provides a safe space for adults to heal the past and grow their inner child to discover relief in the present. For many of us, one on one support is not only helpful, it is necessary for growth.

My purpose is to interpret the individual needs and feelings of adults and children alike and empower them to find their voice and express their unique gifts. 

I currently provide private and group support by phone and through online sessions.  I also offer in-home observation services.

What to Expect:
  • Intimate & essential support
  • A trauma-sensitive approach
  • Practical solutions to behavioral patterns
  • Paradigm shifting analysis of the root causes of behavior
  • A deeper understanding of our own unmet needs
  • How our unmet needs hijack our relationships
