Center for Mindful Development, PLLC

Learn, grow, and be well.

(Update July 2019): I am currently not taking new therapy clients. Please contact me about scheduling psychological and psychoeducational evaluations and parent consultations.

Welcome to the Center for Mindful Development, a practice dedicated to providing comprehensive psychological and educational evaluation, consultation and therapy to children, adolescents and their families. My practice is positive, supportive, and centered around the needs of the child, adolescent and family, specializing in the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities.

Mindfulness education is another component of my practice. I offer mindful parenting classes, sessions to individuals - parents, children and adolescents - as well as to schools and businesses. I look forward to seeing how I can meet your needs.


Mindfulness and Parenting

For me, mindful parenting is not about being still, calm and at peace all of the time. Although, I was likely attracted to this notion of mindful parenting because I can easily follow a plan that involves stillness and all things quiet. However, the more I learn and the more I practice parenting mindfully (and mindfully fail), I have come to realize that the heart of mindful parenting is being present. It is about fully being with all of the guilt, joy, sorrow, expectations -- those met and those dashed -- milestones, and happiness. 

Using an established curriculum, I teach mindful parenting classes to large groups. In addition, I assist parents in finding the right resources that fit their approach to parenting mindfully.
