Thank you for a wonderful start to the year!

Thank you for a wonderful start to the year!

I have had an extremely busy and eventful start to the year, welcoming many new kids to my Padawan Training (i.e. speech therapy). Several other Padawans have graduated which is completely awesome and I honor each and every one of them for their hard work (which looks more like fun) and dedication (hard core game playing).
I also am grateful for the steady stream of visitors to my Facebook and Blog with several queries about my availability to take on new learners.
Although Padawan Training is fully booked, I will keep you updated regularly so please keep in touch. Check back whenever you like and drop me a message. I love to hear from you.
If you do want some training strategies for raising Padawans who LOVE to learn- check out my book, “Can Do Kids” available online at The Bodhi Tree Online Bookstore. You’ll have to put in my maiden name for the search, though. Takayama, Katrina. I like to say that my book is a journey through my heart- lots of love and practical strategies for you on your parenting journey. It’s my way of touching your world and leaving it a better place.
May you have a wonderful school holidays! Two more days for me and then two weeks off. Enjoy! I will…


When good things come together.

I have had an amazing Term One with many new kids starting their speech therapy journey with me. I love meeting the new families and it truly lights me up to have new little ones greet me.

I am also grateful to the families who have been with me for awhile. I look forward to coming into work everyday to see what healing work needs to be done and how much laughter we can have together.

When good things come together, magic happens. I wore this shirt to demonstrate my passions coming together: cats and Star Trek. My business passions are playing and laughing. Wonderful passions to have at work. Plus I get to be a healing agent in this world. Pretty awesome! xxx
