Shauna Casey found Hand in Hand when her son was three and she felt lost parenting through his tantrums and aggression. She signed up for a class on Tears and Tantrums which helped her develop a much richer understanding of the importance of listening, play and connection in the parenting process. She began using the Hand in Hand tools and noticed an immediate change- in her son’s behaviors, her own reactions to them, and in the amount of laughter and fun that began to build in her family.
“Parenting is hard. It’s not something we talk about a lot, but it is, and there isn’t a whole lot of support for parents and families to navigate the inevitable difficulties in a way that creates lasting connection. This often leaves us feeling even more alone and confused.”
Shauna is passionate about helping parents get the support they need to build a strong family ecosystem. She has worked as an educator for over 20 years and has a Master of Science degree in Environmental Policy and Behavior. She lives in Santa Cruz, California and is currently a student in a Masters in Counseling program, working towards becoming a Marriage and Family therapist. She is particularly interested in empowering parents and helping them build networks of support, joy and connection.
