Bio

I am the co-founder of the Beyond Consequences Institute (BCI). BCI was created to educate and provide the resources for helping children with severe acting out behaviors. Many of these children have been previously diagnosed with such disorders as reactive attachment disorder, bipolar, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, depression, and the list goes on and on. Most traditional techniques accepted amongst nationally recognized professionals in this field are fear-based and child-blaming. While some of the traditional techniques may seem to help in the short-run, in the long-run, they simply create more fear in the parent-child relationship, many times resulting in chaotic and unsafe homes. BCI is here to promote a groundbreaking approach that has helped even the most difficult of family cases find stability and healing. Based off of scientific research, the Beyond Consequences Model was developed to provide a simple yet powerful model for helping children with severe behavior. The Beyond Consequences Model has been shown over and over to help families find the healing that they have been looking for after years of "trying everything and nothing worked." The books, "Beyond Consequences, Logic, and Control, Volumes 1 and 2", explains how this understanding is applied in everyday family situations. Chapters are dedicated to severe behaviors to give parents and professionals the "hands-on" understanding they need to truly help children and to create peaceful environments for children. If you are struggling with the effects of trauma in your home, I want this level of healing for you. I am passionate about providing the resources and understanding you need to make your family work for you. It is hard work. It is a journey of commitment and tenacity. Yet, it is what life is about - loving relationships. You aren't living unless you are emotionally attuned to both yourself and to those around you. www.beyondconsequences.com
