I have had the profound privilege of talking, connecting, playing and working with parents, families and children for more than twenty years. My work is rooted in the interconnection of many sciences--attachment science; the brain science of connection and trust; somatic psychology and emotion; conflict resolution and communication that supports connection, repair and relational resilience; applied positive psychology and systems thinking. It's never too late to see, be and co-create anew.
We are wired for connection, thriving and belonging. We are also wired for threat detection, to restore and repair the breaks.
As Carol Gilligan puts it, it's "our ability to repair to breaks that creates a safe-house for love."
