Welcome! I'm Kris, and my mission is to help the next generation feel more compassionate, connected, and competent than the last. I do this through helping parents learn ways to co-regulate with their kids (also known as, "letting your kid borrow your brain"), learning how to celebrate mistakes, and being kind and compassionate with yourself first. Want to learn more? Check out one of my children's books, sneak a peek at my blog, or set up a complimentary phone call to see how I can help your family connect on a deeper level and uncover the joy that's (still) lurking underneath all that chaos!
