 Raising teens can be "crazy".

Join us to make sense of it all! 




We are on hiatus in the month of January.

I am looking for a new location and will be switching to the

3rd Wednesday of the month beginning in February.

So, put February 19th at 7:00 P.M. on your calendars.


Suggestions for locations and discussion topics are welcome!



Speaking Engagements Available!

Speaking to Parents in Groups, Schools, and Church/Synagogue Communities is one of my greatest joys. It enables me to share what I'm most passionate about and to give more parents tools and inspiration to make their families even better.

Thank you for introducing me to your community!

Now booking speaking engagements for 2014!
