Child safety is a topic that has the potential to create a lot of fear and anxiety in the hearts and minds of parents and educators, but child safety doesn't have to be a scary topic!
Research shows that one of the most important protective factors in preventing child maltreatment is the support of adults in the child's life. The Child Safety Collaborative exists as a resource for schools, organizations, and individuals to build up the skills they need to show up as a supportive adult in the lives of the children they interact with on a daily basis.
We do that in two ways: 1) working with organizations, families and children directly to help them develop a culture of physical and emotional safety, and 2) working with educators who are experiencing burn-out and compassion fatigue.
The Child Safety Collaborative brings a wide array of expertise to the table related to education, psychology, and professional development that combine to bring you high quality, individualized and group services.
Email me today to set up a Discovery Call about how I can help your family, school, or organization take intentional action to protect the children in your life.

Momma, Educator, Coach, Survivor
I'm a Momma, PhD candidate, child safety expert, former special educator, and survivor of childhood abuse myself. I founded The Child Safety Collaborative to equip grown-ups as they promote child safety and positive behavior in their own home and organization. Through my research and work with leading safety organizations I have learned that the development of social, emotional, and physical safety must be taught and practiced. I know creating a safer world for my child, and every child, involves taking intentional action, and I'm here to help you learn to do just that.
