I totally get how hard it is for us parents to play with our kiddos, we have so much on our plate already with our adult stuff. But if you are looking for a way to connect with your children, strengthen your bond, show them you care about them, help them to open up more and share about their lives, PLAY is the best way, because PLAY is the language of children. PLAY is the world in their terms.
Usually for parents to get things done in the house, they use play as an exclusive child activity asking the child to Go Play, So this is an invitation to you to not miss this great opportunity to meet your children in their world, get to know them through play, learn about who they are, and just have fun. Set a time during the week to do this, put it in your calendar the same way you schedule every other important thing in your life. Watch your children light up when they hear “Let’s Play!”

I support you with the hardest job of all, the raising of your precious children. I help you find joy, peace and ease dealing with your family challenges. I teach you to connect instead of divide by parenting through love. I work with parents who are committed to turning their family dynamic around, to bringing more peace to their homes and cooperation from their kids. In other words, I teach them how to stop yelling and punishing and how to parent through empathy and connection. Parents know when their approach is not working and when they reach out, I meet them right where they are, I offer them a judgment-free and confidential relationship, I guide them through their struggles, celebrate their successes and support them in their setbacks. After working with me you will feel confident about the best way to raise your children, you will feel a sense of peace and regain your joy knowing that every member of your family feels loved and valued, they are heard and they matter. You will be the parent you always wanted to be in the midst of any circumstance. I am a mother of three boys and I went from being the perfect parent in my fantasies to a “monster mom” in reality and in a matter of a couple of years after I had my first child. My world crumbled. It was chaos. And then I went to being a confident mom that gained her joy back thanks to a deep dive into conscious parenting, a long journey of inner work still to this moment and staying committed to being true to myself.
