From New York, I now live in England with my husband and two daughters. I am a graduate of the Worsley Institute of Classical Acupuncture in Florida, and Wellesley College in Massachusetts.
Okay, I admit it... I'm a SLOW Learner. After my second child was born in 2006, I began consulting parenting experts. While they had excellent information, it felt impossible to assimilate and apply their advice, due to my overwhelm and stress. I'd usually give up... until the next incident drove me to search for help again.
After an international move in 2017 I learned of the GPS Inner Circle program. It was an investment beyond anything I'd previously considered, and I almost didn't join, yet I knew I needed help. The wraparound framework and long-term structure finally gave me the consistent support I needed. It was the ONLY program I experienced that focused on reducing my own stress level FIRST, so that I COULD apply strategies I'd been lacking, and access my own inner knowing of what MY children needed in our particular situations.
I still appreciate those earlier parenting experts, but if I were to do it over again, I'd absolutely have started with GPS Inner Circle FIRST. The greater peace and connections I've made with myself, my family and others are valuable beyond measure.
They say an organization is "only as good as" its founder. Jacqueline Green founded GPS and I am consistently struck by her capacity to embrace change and welcome people where they're at, no matter their emotions. This has blown me away - being heard and welcomed, no matter how we show up, makes for GPS being an incredibly safe space. Jacqueline has attracted a beautiful team to work with her. I wish I knew what the female equivalent of the term "Mensch" would be, for I would use that to describe the incredible women who are part of the GPS team - they are Real, Thoughtful, Resilient, and always there to be part of YOUR SUPPORT TEAM.
In 2022 I graduated as a GPS Parent Coach. I wish to share what I have learned with you and provide a safe space for reflection, growth and change.
