Maya's approach incorporates evidence-based practices, from the fields of child development, neuroscience, attachment, emotional regulation and family systems. Maya will tailor this process to fit the needs and values of each family, with the goal to empower parents to be better prepared to cope with everyday challenges, and life transitions.
“For a child or an adult, it’s extremely powerful to hear someone say, “I get you. I understand. I see why you feel this way.” This kind of empathy disarms us.”
― Daniel J. Siegel, MD
