We are therapeutic learning and educational specialists who believe that in order to make effective choices for your family, you need some measure of hope. And in order to feel hopeful, you need to know that you are supported and understood.

The Romeyn Collective strives to provide that hope and support with services delivered by a compassionate, qualified team. Our aim is to match client families with the professional within our Collective that is best suited to deliver the relevant education, information and opportunity for moving forward into effective, sustainable, solutions.

The Romeyn Collective is completely independent and receives no payment or compensation from therapeutic providers. We work solely for the benefit of our families and clients, and we adhere to the standards of excellence and principals of good practice.

I’m not a parenting expert. In fact, I’m not sure that I even believe in the idea of ‘parenting experts.’  I’m an engaged, imperfect parent and a passionate researcher. I’m an experienced mapmaker and a stumbling traveler. Like many of you, parenting is by far my boldest and most daring adventure.
