About Us

When children have healthy, working attachment relationships, they are freed to explore and develop to their full potential. There are many forces today that interfere with our ability as parents to cultivate and maintain these fragile relationships with our children. Attuned Families is here to help cut through the confusion and deliver simple information and strategies to help families strengthen their connections - the connections that protect children from the adversities they face in life; the connections that make parenting rewarding instead of cumbersome.

Our Strategy

Often parents are educated about their children's needs, and given a toolkit. The problem is that our own history, stresses, and circumstances, act as barriers to accessing that toolkit. Attuned Families is here to help identify and clear barriers, increase your resilience as a parent and empower you to develop the relationship you want to have with your children. This enables you to implement the research based strategies we provide to help create family harmony, as well as the conditions for your children to reach their full potential. Our approach to direct work with children is playful, strengths-based and collaborative.
