Welcome to a Positive Parenting Approach

Cristina Young Therapy is founded on the three pillars of positive discipline: Connection, Communication, and Capability. Whether working with Cristina in one of her weekly GEMS Groups, or participating in one of her parenting classes, you will notice an emphasis on these three fundamentals.


CONNECTION= the depths of our connections are often what predict our overall happiness


COMMUNICATION= our ability to choose the right words to convey our thoughts and feeling accurately 


CAPABILITY= the ability to judge whether or not a child's behavior is appropriate as it relates to their abilities.
