Lindsay Ashmore

Area of specialty

Counseling, Parenting Educator, Infant Massage

Contact

Phone: 780 233-3483

I focus on the Parent-Child Relationship and support parents in their capacity for attunement. Individualized parent coaching sessions are designed to support parents with young children aged one through six, and they are centered in supporting parents in how to create and enhance the parent-child relationship, otherwise know as the attachment relationship. Parents will uncover their strengths and inner resources, and build upon their skills through coaching sessions to best support their child's holistic development through qualities such as presence, playfulness, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy. I also teach parents with newborns (0-12 months) the art of infant massage.
