Let's talk about ACEs
Adverse Childhood Experiences have been shown to negatively impact both physical and mental health into adulthood.
Though abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction are common (70 % of kids and adolescents have at least one by age 16), research shows that resilience can be taught.
"What's predicable is preventable".
First, we mitigate the impacts of childhood trauma by providing the training organizations need to meet their target population with unconditional positive regard and empathy, reducing the risk of re-traumatization.
Next, we pair that transformative mindset shift with practical research-based strategies that focus on sensory regulation. Children and adults who feel empowered through felt safety, healthy coping, and having their basic needs met are free to move from merely surviving to thriving.
Resilience Starts Here
Consulting with Purpose
Education is an ever-changing landscape of programs and initiatives. But, one thing remains constant- if children's basic needs aren't met, they simply can't thrive despite the best curriculum.
That's where we come in. Compassionate practices empower staff with the research-based strategies needed to meet all kids where they are and address their needs to feel safe, heard, and cared for.
These tools are provided as a needs-based and preventive approach to education within your organization.

What My Clients Have to Say
Elizabeth W., Educator
I can now look for connections between what I know about students' personal lives as really reflect on how their home lives could possibly be affecting their learning or behavior. This training has deepened my empathy and strengthened my relationships with my students and the students' caregivers. It means so much to them to know that their teacher truly "sees" their child.
