Bethany Prescott M.A.

I am a trained therapist, mother of three (ages 17, 10, and 8), and was previously a Montessori toddler teacher for 8 years. I have the privilege of fusing all three of my areas of experience into a private practice in which I support parents and teachers to lovingly guide and deeply connect with the children they share their lives with.

All of my work is approached while honoring the importance of personal balance and a commitment to our adult selves that allows us to parent and teach from a balanced place.
