My professional life has focused on young children and their parents since the day I decided to become a psychologist. Attachment and its motivator, love, are the kinetic powerhouses in the field of psychology. I am lucky enough to be in the midst of that fire on a daily basis working with our youngest students, their teachers and parents. Having always understood that the greatest potential for change occurs when people genuinely care, I have sought to capitalize on the open-mindedness, and the need and desire to do things differently and better than the previous generation.
Last weekend I tried Dragon Boating. Let me say I am 56 and have lived 10 minutes from our local river and have never been on it. When we neared the finish line of the race I spontaneously yelled out "TRY SOMETHING NEW". There is nothing like truly feeling the fear and excitement of being a student!
