Welcome - so glad you're here!


I'm not sure what home is like for you.

 

Maybe your home feels overwhelming and chaotic, perhaps sparse and lonely, or possibly a little bit scary.  Maybe home today feels better than home in the past, but it's hard to forget the past.  Maybe as a helping professional, you are trying to create "home" for your clients but find yourself burned out, discouraged or simply lost.

 

 Even though I may not know what home is like for you now or then, I do know that we all long for "home:"  a safe, secure, thriving place full of real life.

 

My mission is to be with parents and partners, kids and adults, and those who help others, as we discover a new "home" together:  creating a safe place where we can deconstruct the patterns that have left us stuck and hopeless, rebuild and restore what has been broken and lost, and experience wholeness in all areas of life, from which we can welcome and care for others.

 

I'd love to work together to rebuild and restore your home.

With you and for you,

Alair

I'm grateful for the opportunity to spend time with moms of young kids and explore different ways that we can help cultivate emotional health in our children.

"Screen-based media associated with structural differences in brains of young children"

Science Daily 

 

"A new study documents structural differences in the brains of preschool-age children related to screen-based media use. The study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, shows that children who have more screen time have lower structural integrity of white matter tracts in parts of the brain that support language and other emergent literacy skills. These skills include imagery and executive function — the process involving mental control and self-regulation. These children also have lower scores on language and literacy measures."
