    Our aim is to provide a program that gives support to the entire family, responds to individual needs, affirms your strengths, and, above all, a program that will serve as a safety net so that our children will not fall through the cracks.

  • Response vs Reaction

    Using tools like Improvisation and NeuroSculptingⓇ can move you from a stressful reactionary state into a relaxed responsive state.

    Contrary to popular belief, Improvisation is not about being funny- it’s about listening, responding and being fully present in the moment with yourself, with those around you and with the task at hand.

    Likewise, not all meditation practices live in the realm of woo-woo. NeuroSculptingⓇ is a 5-step, brain-based tool that combines guided meditation and up-to-date neuroscience to create an individualized meditation practice that allows freedom from limiting stories, beliefs and behaviors.

    Through the use of these approaches, YOU have the power to rewire your brain from fear-based patterns into a state of responding to the moment with ease - no matter what is thrown your way.
