Are you prepared to help your patients and families be fully supported across any medical condition, trauma, or disruption of expectations? Are you, yourself, centered in your own unconscious nervous system as you provide care? We are all human and have the need to connect. Read my letter to NICU parents, Ready for Relationships, and let's work together to create a paradigm shift that allows for universal support as a foundation for children to thrive in their families and communities.

"In order to develop normally, a child requires progressively more complex joint activity with one or more adults who have an irrational emotional relationship with the child. Somebody’s got to be crazy about that kid. That’s number one. First, last and always.”
