And in a research climate that is always asking how things go wrong, Dr. Axness’ passion is to focus on what can go right — how we can optimize potential and do it in a healthier and more joyful way? Her teachings are imbued with a relevance and compassion borne of her willingness to share her own parenting struggles, joys and discoveries. Dr. Axness has a private practice coaching parents-in-progress, and considers as one of her most important credentials that she raised two peacemakers to share with the world — Ian and Eve, both in their twenties.
