All parents need support.

That’s where I come in.

I have spent over 15 years working with children and parents to help parents thrive. I believe that science can help ease the challenges of modern parenting.

I turn research on child development and parenting into practical, real-life solutions.

This isn’t unsolicited stranger advice about parenting. This isn’t judgy people on social media. This isn’t noise about parenting choices that don’t matter. This is honest, straightforward, and true.

This is me, using science, to help you.


With Kate’s support and guidance, our son is doing great in school again.


Our family dynamic completely changed. Temper tantrums are under control, everybody is sleeping, and we can enjoy famiy time again. Thanks, Kate!


Kate’s ability to speak candidly about the ups and downs of parenting is honest and extremely helpful.
