Michelle Natinsky, Ph.D.
Nothing is more important to parents than their relationships with their children…and yet, these relationships can also be challenging and conflictual at times. I offer compassionate, collaborative consultation around a variety of issues concerning this most powerful relationship. I am not the expert when it comes to your child – YOU are. Together, drawing on my years of experience as a licensed psychologist (and licensed specialist in school psychology), educator, and mother, we can work together to support the goals you have in creating the family relationships you desire.

The Fitness School
Now, more than ever before, fitness and fun needs to be introduced to today’s youth. In a society that can tend to focus more on iPads than play, it’s important that our future generations continue to realize the value of a healthy, active lifestyle, and learn that they already have the right tools and resources to carry that value with them through life – We believe there is no better place to learn just that, no matter what age you are, than at The Fitness School.
