Andrea knows first-hand how overwhelming it can be to parent a mentally ill or difficult child. She has experienced the challenges, isolation, shame and crises associated with raising a mentally ill child. She and her husband sent their daughter, Chloe, to a residential mental health treatment facility in 2014, and again in the fall of 2016. Through personal experience, research and trial and error, Andrea is able to provide guidance to families who are in crisis and need support.


Andrea offers one-on-one appointments to help coach parents through the day-to-day challenges of raising difficult kids.

There are numerous services The Lemonade Project provides to families and community organizations.
