Mission of service

Our mission is to support homeschooling families in their efforts to provide and specialized learning environment.  Jessica Carr LMHC, CTS and Amie ThomasLMHC, CTS believe in the Premise:  The caregivers are the experts of their children.  We wish to explore what is working and what is not working in order to support these devoted caregivers in their roles.  Jessica and Amie are committed to working collaboratively to support families in reaching their goals.

  • The children will learn and practice social and emotional developmental skills with peers that have similar academic learning environments.
  • Caregivers will be provided with increased support to effectively manage the tasks associated with being a caregiver and an academic instructor. Focus will be on enhancing the emotional well being for the busy caregiver juggling multiple roles and tasks.
