Providing children, adults, and families a space to experience growth, healing, and change.

About TBRI®

Andrea is a Trust-Based Relational Intervention® Practitioner (TBRI®). TBRI® is a parenting intervention that is designed to meet the basic relationship and developmental needs of children and youth from hard places as well as the adults who seek to help them heal, learn, and grow. It is trauma-informed and attachment-based and helps parents and caregivers learn how to connect and form secure attachments with children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, child welfare involvement, placement disruptions and any other circumstance that has resulted in your child struggling with emotion regulation and behavioural challenges.

TBRI® Training for Professionals is for those who want to learn about Trust-Based Relational Intervention ® and use it within their professional capacity (e.g., therapists, caseworkers, foster and adoption care specialists, occupational therapists, medical professionals, counselors, early childhood & development specialists). Contact Andrea to book training for your organization at

TBRI® Training for Caregivers is specifically designed for parents and caregivers of children who come from ‘hard places,’ such as maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence. It is, however, an approach that can be used by parents and caregivers with all children. Training will be offered twice a year, dates and registration information coming soon!
