Hi, I’m Lori Stevens (she/her)!
I’m a Family Counsellor, an imperfect parent and daughter, a lover of travel, and an attachment science fanatic. As parents and caregivers, we can often feel alone in the struggles we face. We place high expectations on ourselves, feel overwhelmed with emotions, and wonder if our parenting choices do more damage than good. Let’s face it, some of the strategies which were modeled for us no longer seem to be acceptable, nor do they feel aligned with the kind of parents we desire to be. I am confident that I can help you feel more assured as a parent so that you can support your children and teens in developing security in who they are and therefore limit the negative impacts of growing up in these current times.
I aspire to help parents and caregivers:
Build CONFIDENCE in your parenting and expand your repertoire of EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES – no more second guessing!
Gain INSIGHT AND UNDERSTANDING of your child’s and teen’s behaviours and expression of needs, which helps them to feel heard and understood.
Strengthen LISTENING AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS which will result in increased cooperation and collaboration.
Promote a STRONG FOUNDATION with your children and teens – a foundation based on secure and trusting relationships and the ability to share life challenges.
My PASSION for attachment science helps parents and caregivers learn the value and strength of responsive relationships in promoting their children’s and teenager’s overall well-being.
When children and teenagers feel seen, valued, and heard at the core of who we are, they flourish in their homes, school, and communities.
Let’s get your family feeling connected and loved and experiencing more fun and adventure!
