Hi, I'm Dave Regan (he/him)
I’m a Registered Social Worker, proud girl Dad, and outdoor enthusiast. Many parents have been stretched far too thin over the last few years, leaving them feeling overwhelmed, guilty, or ashamed. There’s no harder struggle then watching your children face social, emotional, and mental health challenges while not knowing what to do to help.
My caring and empathic approach to supporting parents will help you feel open and safe while we learn to respond rather than react to your children’s emotional needs.
I aspire to help parents:
Strengthen ATTACHMENT RELATIONSHIPS to help support kids and teens through tough times and to give them the tools to feel CONFIDENT in navigating the world on their own.
Resolve conflict through COLLABORATION with kids and teens – developing HEALTHY BOUNDARIES and COMMUNICATION as family navigate complex and ever-changing environments.
Respond to critical periods in development in a careful, planned, and conscious way that helps SUPPORT children’s AUTONOMY.
Feel EMPOWERED to understand and apply various techniques for supporting children with acute MENTAL HEALTH challenges.
I am PASSIONATE in working with families to identify and change root issues in attachment relationships to help children overcome many of life’s challenges. I can help facilitate a thorough understanding your children’s emotional needs and teach you to support their ability to regulate emotions and build core life skills.
Let’s build lasting, secure relationships that foster love, connection, and resiliency.
