Darcy and her advice column:

I’ve been serving children and families in a variety of capacities for over 20 years! Every week I get several emails, messages and calls from friends and friends of friends, asking for advice on many topics ranging from parenting challenging kids, how to handle aging seniors, helping loved ones who are struggling with addiction and on and on.  The quantity of question I receive just from the people I know, made it apparent, there is a need for the community at large to have a resource they may tap into for quick, immediate and sound advice. I’m honored that has allowed us this time to together!

As complex as humans are, so are the problems we are faced with in our day to day lives.  I invite you to send me your questions about life, family, hardships, change, parenting and/or whatever it is that might be interfering with your day to day peace.  Many questions I answer based on my own working knowledge, experience or research.  Other times I might consult a fellow expert in the field, but I can assure you your questions will be answered with grace, compassion and with your confidentiality in mind.

Please write to: Ask Darcy at ,  do not provide me with your real name.  Some information may be changed to protect your identity.
