Support Groups and Classes

Morning Coffee, Discussion and


with Amy and Friends, on ZOOM

Thursday October 19, 2023

10am - 11:15 am Pacific time

Hooray for Parent Support and Discussion Group calls!

They bring us together, out of any isolation we may be experiencing as a parent of a child with PANDAS/PANS,  in this crazy world.

Please make the extra effort to untangle yourself from whatever you may be needing to do, and just show up, even for 30 minutes. I PROMISE you will be SO GLAD you did.

Its a chance to be seen as a person, listened to with respect from others who have walked something similar to your path, feel the relief of having a community of support around you, and have a chance to give back to the journey of others by just being there for them.  You don't really have to say a word.

I for one felt frankly invisible from alot of the world for a long time, while we were dealing with the depths of my son's illness and treatment.  We are just not meant to function alone.  We have so much shared wisdom and collective heart.

If you can use your camera its highly preferable.  Seeing the faces of others helps us just feel closer and more human together, than seeing than a bunch of names in the black squares of the Zoom screen.

Please join us!!  Just RSVP to ROBIN and ASK HER FOR A LINK....

ONLY HAVE 15 minutes?

Then come for 15 minutes if that's what you have, and leave feeling connected and seen!

(ps. bring your own coffee...)


(We LOVED this particular class and are working on a new fall session...TBA... but we're leaving the prior info up for your inspiration.....)

Wed March 8, 10-11:30am PST

Neuroplasticity and Brain Retraining


Lorelai Yarrow, Neuroplasticity Coach

Founder of YAY Neuroplasticity!

You're not going to want to miss this amazing young lady, who has personally overcome the very issues she works with for our children.

Lorelai brings an effective and unique combination of practical neuroscience, personal experience, cognitive behavioral therapy, and FUN to help people of all ages heal from everything from chronic pain to schizophrenia to complex trauma and specializes in the “incurable”.

The importance of Brain Retraining work in the full recovery of children with PANDAS and PANS cannot be overstated. And if your child is my patient, you have heard about this recovery step from the beginning.

For more information on Lorelai and Yay Neuroplasticity, or if you would like to reach out to her before the class, please go to


Lorelai is a neuroplasticity coach and nervous system regulation mentor. As someone who recovered from a lifetime of chronic illness and complex trauma (13 years bedridden, chronically ill for almost 30), Lorelai's approach is uniquely intuitive and compassionate. As someone I’ve known personally and watched heal, I cannot recommend her services enough.

She will be speaking about how she recovered using neuroplasticity, how she applies it today, and how to keep going when it seems impossible.

Her mother will also be there.

There will also be time for Q&A.







There is always
