Welcome, I'm Mary, licensed educator of children and families, your guide and fellow parent. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with families across the country and throughout the world. Best known for my first book, Raising Your Spirited Child, I now have three more books. My books are in twelve languages and available in all bookstores and on Amazon.com.

Supporting children and families and helping them to build lifelong healthy relationships is the foundation of my work. I stress the importance of knowing who has come to live with you. You learn about your child's temperament and stage of development. You get practical solutions to your concerns and receive the affirmation and support you deserve. You are not alone, many parents are dealing with the same challenges and we have found successful solutions.
