Continuing on the theme of HOPE this month – Between COVID, quiet holiday celebrations, school closings, disruptive race relations at a new peak in the USA, and parents at home seeking new exciting ways to accommodate wiggly kids, not to forget our confused pets…welcome 2021.
The parent of two adults who are “bored” and “tired of being home”, I am also the daughter of a 90-year-old mother who I have not seen or touched since spring.
Yes, I feel your pain and, like most families, missed the traditions of large gatherings, holidays with family and friends, and bountiful celebrations from years past.
An optimist, I am positive about the future and hopeful.
Since the announcement and dispersement of the COVID vaccination (some 2nd to date), I am feeling a bit more energized. Too, I see light at the end of the tunnel.
Recognizing things will not change overnight, I invite you to hang in there a little longer.
Do what you can daily (no pressure to get it all done) and find one thing to be grateful for.
We will get through this together. Maintain HOPE. Accept 2021 with an open heart as it is already here.
Remind yourself, life is already better.
Let the countdown begin.
Happy New Year!

“Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
“I went home and practiced what Amy taught me…and it worked!”— 8-year-old coaching client
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
