Our Team - We are here to help

During this time of social distancing, we are unable to provide face-to-face in-person home visits, but we are here to coach and support you virtually via phone or video conferencing. This is just a temporary way of servicing your family, and we look forward to the time we can join you in your home again. Until then, be safe, and reach out to your Primary Service Provider for assistance.

In this time of crisis, our brains can only handle so much. If you as a parent can only handle one thing at a time, that is ok. Let your mere presence for your child be enough. You cannot be a breadwinner, teacher, doctor and parent all of the time. When your child calls your name, if just for a second, make eye contact, look, touch and see them. Just let them know you are there. They only need a touchstone. Give yourself a break, you are good enough and are enough.
