Child and Adolescent Sexuality Education and Consultation
As parents and educators, it is our job and our joy to nurture the development of the whole child. That means addressing the cognitive, social, and emotional lives of children.
Children need adults who will be honest and provide accurate information to help them navigate their world. Far too often however, adults in their lives hesitate or avoid subjects completely that are related to sexuality, gender, and relationships. Fear of saying the wrong thing or introducing information too early leaves children without the information and understanding they need to integrate sexuality into their lives in a healthy way. At the same time, they are exposed daily to marketing and media messages that are highly sexualized and do not have the children’s best interests at heart.
I provide parents and educators with the knowledge and tools they need to lay the foundations for healthy relationships, sexuality, and gender identity in the lives of the children and teens with whom they live and work. I also work directly with the young people, and connect them to valuable resources to support their healthy development.
