Updates on The Family Alchemists

Hi Friends, When I created The Family Alchemists in 2018, I had a really big vision and mission of connecting people to the resources they need to grow. I have so many amazing professionals in the Conscious Parenting space as friends and was determined to help them...

How Recovery Principles Pave the Way to Conscious Parenting

Applying the 12 steps to my parenting helped me practice boundaries, communicate with integrity and ultimately BE loving and tolerant.

Conscious Communication Skills

In times of great social change, we look for the things we can control. We may not be able to predict the future for ourselves or our teens, but we can control how we communicate. The way we communicate reveals what we value and how we value it. I longed to connect...

How to Save a Marriage

So, you’re an empath married to a guy that treats you like a queen – most of the time. But those times he’s angry? You question if you’re more like your mother than you thought. You worry that his behavior is going to hurt your kids and that you’re being irresponsible...

WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN TO YOU?

When I have a chance to actually discuss the topic with clients, it is very simple to explain my view of spirituality, understand my clients’ perspective, and come to a common ground semantically (and often philosophically). I notice I regularly attract people who...

Helping Your Kids During Coronavirus Social Distancing

Dear Brave Ones: Of course, we’re scared. That means it’s the time to be gentle and compassionate with ourselves and others. Can you imagine how scared our kids are? Their routines have been disrupted and they miss their teachers and friends. They have less control...

Out of the race

From the moment we are born, we are part of a race we never wanted to be in, we are measured by milestones and compared endlessly with any peers we share our life with. We are numbers in charts and checkmarks in lists of accomplishments, in other words, we are what we...

Mindful Parenting Through the Everyday Stresses

In the fast paced world of parenting where decisions are made in between spilled cereal, constant questioning and smartphone apps, it is no wonder the word mindfulness is becoming as necessary in a parent’s vocabulary as the word nap-time. And yet, for many,...

What our children ask of us

Our children ask so little really. Listen to my discoveries and ideas. Look through my eyes to understand my world. Feel my love, joy, frustration, pain. Hold my hand, my heart and me close. Be careful with me and understand me. I may feel off sometimes, when the...

Elf on the shelf, Magic of well-behaved kids?

I was already familiar with conscious parenting when the Elf on the Shelf became popular a few years ago, I found out about it when my kids were toddlers and I heard stories about him moving every night and being a fun addition during Christmas time. I was excited to...

Biographical Info
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.

Doing nothing is harder than you think
2 years ago no Comment

Tantrums and meltdowns are one of the hardest things to handle as parents, it brings all sorts of feelings, fears, insecurities and a high level of anxiety. The confusing part is to understand where this is coming from, most parents believe it comes from the child, they blame the child for their emotional state. They […]

My kids’ first bully was ME
2 years ago no Comment

As adults, we claim one of our most basic rights, the right to be safe from harm or hurt. And ironically, we have such a difficult time granting this right to the most vulnerable human beings in our society, our children. Have you looked at this from the point of view of your children? Have […]

Shaming Isn’t Parenting
2 years ago no Comment

If we were able to stop for a moment before we automatically shame our kids when they are misbehaving, and if we were able to think before we spoke or acted, most times we would change our reaction for a better response. Our conditioning takes the wheel every time we get triggered and if we […]

Sometimes we are the collateral damage.
2 years ago no Comment

Understanding that other people’s actions are a reflection of themselves is very difficult when we are still mostly operating from the unconscious because we take it personally. What happens is that since our identity as kids was formed based on what we were told, how we were treated, and the kind of relationship we had […]

When your child cries…
2 years ago no Comment

Our children crying is a very common trigger for most of us parents, and the most common reaction is to attempt to stop it. This reaction is not an intentional action but rather an unconscious one that happens automatically before we even realize it. That’s the way our conditioning operates, like a program running in […]

Tough Love isn’t Parenting
2 years ago no Comment

When I thought about having kids and when they were born, my only desire was to love them, to take care of them gently and make them happy. I knew I wanted the best for them, but somehow everything changed when my kids started to be and act in ways very different from my perfect […]

Whiny Kids can’t just “Stop Whining”
2 years ago no Comment

Read more about Parenting Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers. A typical scenario in everyday parenting is: Your child is whining and the solution to address his behavior is to tell them to stop whining. This is the most common reaction from parents. When we tell our children to stop their behavior we are not trying to […]

Let Me Love You a Little More
2 years ago no Comment

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 […]
