When our kids are little, they need us to be there for them to meet their basic needs, our days are filled with never-ending feedings and diaper changes, we are also lacking sleep and more often than not we barely have enough time to think about our own well-being. We check our to-do lists and are constantly focus on doing, doing, doing, we end up focusing on the urgent and often forget about the important, to just BE.
The most valuable gift you can ever give your kids is to slow down, stop for a moment and between those little daunting tasks, delight in your child’s presence, be present without an agenda, for just a moment let your child know I See You, I Hear You, You Matter. Out of all the things you could ever offer your child, there is one thing he is looking for from the moment he is born, he wants a connection with you. Above all else, connection is the way your child feels loved.
Offering the gift of your presence will set the child on a path where he knows he is worth loving, he will love himself and naturally, he will know how to love others. Hold your children tight tonight. Their pure light needs to be protected so it doesn’t diminish but on the contrary becomes brighter and brighter from the relationship with you. Cherish all the lessons your children came here to teach you, motherhood could be the catalyst for your evolution.

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.
