It can feel really hard to reach out for parenting help, and I am super glad you are here! Let’s get to know each other. My name is Candy Beers-Kim, and I specialize in parent-child interactions in infancy and early childhood. I support parents through all the early questions and help them gain confidence in their unique ability to parent their child.
Every time you give a parent a sense of success or of empowerment, you’re offering it to the baby indirectly. ~Dr. Brazelton
With almost all of early childhood communication being non-verbal, it is easy for communication to get a little messy. I’m here to decode the messages and help families thrive!
I believe all parents have the innate ability to nurture their children. My passion for this work is helping parents reconnect to that innate ability and begin to trust their interactions with their children. I help bring parenting back to the parent/child relationship, so that answers to parents questions are easy to find.
My own transition into motherhood fed my passion for maternal development and health. Suffering from postpartum anxiety and experiencing first-hand the need for a strong support team, I am very focused on how this work in early parenting can support parents, especially mothers. I am passionate about empowering new parents with solid, evidenced-based information as a way to help them feel confident in their own parenting choices, especially around the delicate issue of sleep and development.
I offer In-Home consults in Richmond, Roanoke, Lynchburg, Blacksburg, and Charlottesville, VA. I offer virtual consults to anywhere with internet and am available for lectures and classes both via internet and in person. I am a member of the Virginia Association for Infant Mental Health, Virginia Postpartum Support, am a board member for Boss Babes RVA, and am a Lactation Counselor. I also offer postpartum support groups and postpartum yoga classes.
