Your learning guide.
I'm Judith Pinto, an experienced child development & mental health specialist and parent educator. I help parents learn to care for anxious school-aged children. Parents who work with me develop confidence in their ability to offer warmth and connection while providing appropriate supports and strategies, clear limits and "just right" structure to overcome anxiety's grip on their child's daily functioning and their family's life. In the process, parents help their children feel self-confident, resilient and capable. That means no more tantrums, meltdowns, avoidance tactics and arguments. Just healthy, respectful relationships and brave children who are able to step into life's challenges!
Over the past 25 years, I have helped so many parents solve the most challenging problems and conflicts in their home and family life by learning to address their children's anxiety. My highly experiential educational offerings will give you the chance to really understand and apply new insights in neuroscience, attachment, sensory processing and anxiety management in your daily interactions with your children. You'll FEEL confident because you'll BE so much more skilled. You'll know you've got this!
ALSO, in case you're interested, the business name, Kyokan (pronounced "Kee-oh-khan") is a Japanese word that means "empathetic". Kyokan Connections gives parents the chance to explore, practice and delve deeply into learning how to engage with empathic curiosity with their children. This is foundational to a healthy, loving, lifelong relationship.
