Building Relational Trust
and Connection through Play

Passionate Play Leadership

For over thirty years I have led workshops which focus on joy, cooperation, and connection. 

More and more I have come to the simple realization that everyone wants to feel a sense of belonging. 

Many of today’s challenges in education, in organizations, in society, and in our individual lives can boil down to people feeling disconnected and feeling like they don’t belong. 

One of the best remedies for this growing epidemic of alienation is Nurtured Heart Play.

The Heart of Play

Combining all my years as a Play Specialist I help schools, teachers, educators, parents or anyone working with children by offering them truly engaging, informative and fun trainings on the importance of play in all aspects of learning. 

In these training’s you will lean the tools, games, exercises and
processes that can be interwoven into any educational arena. Educators benefit greatly from expanding their “tool kit”, learning kid-tested games and activities that support the social, emotional, and physical needs of all students.

Nurtured Heart Play

Nurtured Heart Play came about when I met Howard Glasser, the creator of the Nurtured Heart Approach® (NHA) and we realized how alike we were in our work of nurturing the spirits of children. 

I became an advanced certified trainer in NHA, and then Howard encouraged me to take my knowledge of play and meld it together with the Nurtured Heart Approach. With the help of many other NHA trainers, who took my ideas and “played” with them, this synthesis became a reality. 

Our collaboration resulted in the book, Nurtured Heart Play.
