Dawn Friedman MSEd (she/her)

I love working with struggling parents.

I’ve been working with families for the past thirty years. I’ve been a preschool teacher, a childcare site director, a parenting educator, a college course instructor, a family case manager, an editor at a national parenting magazine, and a counselor in private practice working with parents and kids. 

My masters is in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have post-grad certification in Infant-Toddler Mental Health and completed the certification training for postpartum mood disorders through Postpartum Support International. 

I have two kids — one grown, one nearly — and my work has been informed and inspired by my own challenges, grief,  growth and joy as a parent and a daughter committed to doing things differently.

Raising kids is the most triggering work that we will ever do.

Nothing will bring out the bumps and bruises of our own childhoods; nothing will so expose us to our own hopes, fears and frustrations; and nothing will force us to confront our demons like becoming a parent. We need (and deserve) help from healing partners — friends, loved ones, healthy family members and community helpers — who will support us towards growth, understanding and joy.

That’s why I built this community.
