Lisa's works from an attachment-based developmental paradigm as articulated by Dr. Gordon Neufeld .
The paradigm emphasizes "right relationship and soft hearts," and the importance of "holding onto our kids" so that they can be free to develop their full potential. Lisa loves to help parents extend "an unconditional invitation to exist in their presence" to their children.
Lisa's classes and consulting support parents in becoming the parent that their child needs through: meetings children's needs, understanding the path of development and cultivating right relationship.
The Simplicity Parenting movement also informs Lisa's work. Simplicity Parenting advocates for the slowing down of family life and for the preservation of childhood. It is a counter-cultural movement that has developed in response to the pervasiveness of "too much, too fast, too soon and too many choices" in children's lives today.
Lisa also draws inspiration from the wisdom of Waldorf education, Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), the many great teachers her sons have had and, most importantly, her own parenting journey.
