The intention behind the offspring of Blissful Butterfly Yoga, Blissful Butterfly Kids, is to support creating a world where children don't have to recover from their childhoods. To do this I will soon be offering conscious and mindful parenting tips, tricks and support rooted in my 19 years of professional experience working with children.
Let's face it: raising small children is hard. Children push buttons, are illogical, have really big feelings and basically run the show. The early years leave parents with many sleepless nights which can result in not ideal responsiveness to tantrums, emotional disregulation and agressive behaviors (stemming from issues around attention, communication, control, development, sensory processing...).
If you are new to parenting or have a new child who is nothing like your others- it can make it even more challenging to know how to support the child appropriately and compassionately in the moment. This is why I want to help!
The bulk of my behavioral, emotional and mental health training is with children 2-6ish years old on the Autism spectrum. I practiced applied behavioral analysis techniques and relationship based inteventions, specifically Floortime, for 14 years when I was a Mental Health Therapist. I have studied under/learned alongside: Psychologists, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Masters level clinicians. I also have direct care experience with typically developing children, as I began providing personalized childcare to families with children 0-3 after I left the mental health field in 2017.
In addition, I am an Internationally Certified Yoga Therapist. This allows me to bring consciousness and mindfulness into my interactions with all humans.
Learning how to stay present, centered, calm and support children in coregulation was something I learned over time. With my plethora of experience and toolbox I would love to offer myself as a resource for parents who are struggling. If you or someone you know needs ideas on how to support a little human, or on how to not loose your shit when that little human pushes your buttons- follow me @blissfulbutterflykids
