Episode 026: A Community for Caregivers: Connections, Support and Advocacy with Kim McLeod

Brenda Agnew, your host, is joined by Kim McLeod, child and youth counselor. When working with Kim, parents find two opportunities in developing their parenting skills: the personal work, and the functional work, focusing on how they can show up to parent their child throughout their development. Her work is based on years of experience working through foster care with children and their biological families, adoptive families, and the blending that occurs in family makeup.

Kim’s work also has a specialty in supporting the mothers of children who have special needs and medically complex needs. With this group of parents, she works on advocacy: finding the voice and self-compassion.
