Guidance through the Perfect Sto​rm

Biological predisposition, adjustment to life changes, meeting of developmental milestones, and traumatic events can culminate in a perfect storm to create emotional and behavioral dysregulation. I have both experienced a perfect storm and have guided many people to calmer waters. 

E​xpertise
