Bridging the gap
After over 20 years of having the privilege of hearing what is really going on deep inside of families, I would like to offer my lens to help you all understand what you really want each other to know, but don’t know how to explain.
What I believe

My love for these teenagers has inspired me to help both them and the parents who love them. I’m different because I help both sides meet in the middle. I believe we are created in the image of God, and even if you don’t believe in Him there is still a lot to learn here. I’m here to show you what the other one wishes you knew.
