Welcome to Echo Parenting & Education where our vision is to ensure the physical and emotional safety of every child. We teach parents and professionals tools and strategies that promote the kind of safe, stable nurturing relationships that lead to healthy development as well as healing from generational trauma.

Our curriculum includes the latest research on brain development, the practice of nonviolent communication, emotional skill building and how to build resilience in young people. We also create a safe space for adults to reflect on their own adverse childhood experiences, which if left unaddressed can continue the cycle of generational trauma. We believe that all behavior is communication and by staying curious about the basic human needs or trauma responses that lie beneath behavior, we endeavor to create a more just, accepting and compassionate world.
