Intentional Parenting is all about helping parents by making their path easier to see.  

There are three things that are the driving force behind the development of Intentional Parenting

  1. My background is in Sociology and I’m always fascinated by the larger and sometimes invisible things that influence how we think and behave…especially as parents. As an intense solution-seeker, I love to look for patterns of behaviour and where they come from, to understand their influence, and figure out a way to make changes – if change is needed!                                                                                                 
  2. Many parts of my life have been really hard. If I could have known the things that are in Intentional Parenting when I was starting out as a young adult, my life could have been quite different. (PS. Its all good now!)                                                                                                                                           
  3. Toronto’s Sick Kids Hospital has a lecture series on Infant Mental Health. Being part of that, and, given my life story, has REALLY lit a fire under me! Intentional Parenting has been designed to help parents understand how to contribute to their children’s mental health simply as a way of life!

No frowns; no judgement; just thoughtful, supportive, and encouraging wisdom and insight.


Often a second pair of eyes can offer a clarity that is so hard to see when you are standing right in the middle of the stress and fatigue.
