A Few Words About Us

Children, Families and Communities is a caring circle of parents, professionals and individuals passionately committed to providing creative opportunities for learning, growing, and healing. We have been together for over 25 years, initially working together as pediatric therapists. In 2002 we organized into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. In 2021 we became a membership organization.

From a core of conscious mindfulness we offer direct services, teaching and coaching that support healing in physical, emotional, spiritual and functional aspects of living a life.

Our interests lie in exploring how to function in life with greater ease, choosing our preferences. Each unique individual has a unique commonality in their inherent ability to heal. 

The foundation of all our services is Presence in Healing, a transformative, body-centered approach that promotes self healing through exploration and guidance. Presence in Healing is a vehicle for both personal and professional growth. It influences all our programs and initiatives and serves as a basis for individuals to share their gifts in the world. We offer apprenticeships in this work, in addition to direct services.

We invite you to visit us through this website, contact us through phone or email, and experience our work.



Our Approach

We offer holistic treatment.


We offer holistic treatment. Holistic practitioners view individuals as the unity of body, mind, emotion, energy and spirit within the systems and cultures that they live in. When balance is experienced among these parts and within social and environmental circumstances, well-being occurs.

We provide integrative services.


We provide integrative services. Integrative services use a combination of conventional and alternative approaches to address the biological, psychological, energetic, social and spiritual aspects of health, illness, and inquiry. We respect the human capacity for healing, the importance of the relationship between the practitioner and the client, and a collaborative approach to care among practitioners.

We support functional services


We support functional services. Functional services support taking whatever a person has learned and applying this to their outer world. Change in an individual impacts everyone in their circle of family, friends and work/educational colleagues.
