“I attended your seminar at the Camarillo library last week and thought the material
was excellent in content, research, and presentation. You have so many practical and non-alienating suggestions–such as let your child know ahead of time you will be checking the phone for activity.
I am a grandmother of five and both our daughters have taken your seminar and are implementing your suggestions. Thank you so much for helping us all be better parents and grandparents.”
Blessings on you and your work,

Did you know?
I’m the founder of GetKidsInternetSafe, a mom, and a psychologist. In 25+ years treating kids and adults, I’ve seen our lives change dramatically, especially with COVID19. Zoom fatigue and digital exhaustion are hot topics. I offer education about the sources of digital injury and creative ways to apply psychological wellness tools to our screen-weary lives. I’d love to talk to you about what we can do to get our joy and passion back after recent divisive and frightening times.
