Story

Get to Know Us

 Our programs were created to foster the development of emotional, social and healthy domains of behavior in all ages. Founder Miranda Cruz has a special skills set for assessing, profiling , developing, managing, and implanting healthy behaviors approaches for multiple ages. Our goal is to help parents, educators and individuals bridge the gap in  appropriate healthy and successful approaches to social emotional behavioral growth.

With years of lived trauma experiences, and passion for early development, we have developed multiple programs tools. Our programs range from mainstream behavior questions, addressing behavior quirks, to problematic behaviors and post traumatic growth.
