My philosophical foundation is eclectic. Attachment parenting, RIE, Mindfulness, and traditional parenting create a foundation that promotes a deep and authentic connection to your child. I strive to connect the child to the parent and, more importantly, to connect the parent to themself. My ultimate goal is not to create parenting perfection, instead to create a true connection between each member of the family.

I've known Joshua for 7 years, since my oldest daughter was just a babe. She met me where I was as a new parent - someone who had lots of questions, doubts and not sure about how to handle this major life transition. Being in that "circle" with Joshua was the breath of fresh air that I desperately needed. She helped me feel validated, secure and cared for. The sage wisdom she shared with me week after week truly changed me - as a parent and as a person. Looking back to that time and the road that she and I have shared, I feel so grateful. I've had 2 other daughters since then and she has come alongside me every step of the way. Whether it be navigating new siblings arrivals, angst ridden preschool transitions or just plain old life "stuff" Joshua takes a holistic approach that makes the parenting journey feel supported and grounded. Whenever I run into a bump in the road, I call her. I could not recommend Joshua more!
