Meet Marcy Axness, PhD

I'm Marcy Axness. I'm an early development specialist and I have a private practice counseling parents and pre-parents. I'm fascinated with how we become who we become and how early that begins. And I would have to say that my research into that began when I was conceived and carried by a mother who knew she wasn't going to be keeping me. If you're struggling, I've been there. Parenting brings up our most tender material to be reckoned with. So in my practice and in my book, "Parenting for Peace," I do give parents tips and all the right things to say and not to say to their children, but I really focus a lot on cultivating an inner sense of calm and self-possession which is transformative and makes 90% of discipline issues evaporate before they even appear. With my former husband of 25 years I raised a son and daughter and besides time with them, I'd say I find my greatest joy when everything falls away at the present moment, whether that's with another person, or on the ski slope, or on the ocean, or on the dance floor.
