Over the past 25 years Lynda has helped individuals, parents, children and teens deal with the following issues:
ADD / ADHD
Attachment / parenting styles
Child and adolescent development
Death and loss
Divorce / separation
Emotional development / self regulation
Temperament / reactivity
In the book, “Hold Onto Your Kids” by Gordon Neufeld and Gabor Mate, Mate argues that parenting is first and foremost a relationship, not a set of skills written by experts to be followed. The secret, he claims, is to honor your relationship with your child in every interaction you have with them. This is easier said than done when your kids will not take “no” for an answer, do the exact opposite of what you have requested, and become highly reactive over the simplest of requests by you.
Systems theory teaches us that if you change one part of the system, the whole system changes. You cannot control your child’s reactions and responses. You can control what you do. Lynda will help you identify what you can do differently to get different results. She teaches parents ways of communicating that foster close emotional ties with their children so that children are willing to work with their parents rather than against them.
