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...


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...

Learn More About This Family Alchemist


My parenting journey has been a twisting turning path towards authenticity.

My first born was premature and had congenital defect. She had an extensive surgery on the third day of life. While she made it through the first surgery, she had to have a second one, two months later. It lasted eight-hours and we weren’t sure she would make it. I had to completely let go of her and surrender her to the surgeons, to a Higher Power whom I choose to call God and to her own fighting spirit. I learned early in my motherhood how much of life we don’t control.

When my second daughter faced a depression in adolescence, I was afraid it was my fault because my marriage was ending. I was more afraid she would spiral downward. But surrendering my ego about controlling the outcome and truly listening to her soul’s intuition, helped me become the parent she needed.

It meant I had to dig deep, get real and communicate honestly from the heart with no pretext or agenda. I learned the dance of engaging and letting go in order to help her find the resources and support that were tailored to her needs.

As it turns out, she needed my authenticity to affirm hers and heal. Through these experiences, I mapped the mindset and the skills of co-creating the relationships my daughters needed to heal and launch their own lives independent of me.

Today, they are resilient, powerful young women. Each of them has a strong sense of self and they are making their way in the world.

I found my soul’s liberation in the process and my calling to help other parents authentically connect heart to heart with their tweens, teens and launching young adults.

I’m a sociologist specializing in family communication dynamics.

I also coach divorcing parents seeking to co-parent, single parents and women entering new chapters of their lives. I coach in individual sessions or small groups in English or Spanish.

My first book is titled, How to Raise Respectful Parents: Better Communication for Teen and Parent Relationships and Como Criar Padres Respetuosos.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all kindness and professional expertise, Laura. I found your description of how you are enjoying watching your daughters blossom into who they're meant to be, was eye-opening for me. I am faithfully carrying out your teaching." Pryiya B. "I felt like I was living in chaos before I started coaching sessions with you. Now, I know how to let go of what is not my responsibility and take care of myself. I know it is setting a good example for my teen daughter because she is now pausing and meditating or doing yoga to deal with her anxious moments." - L. E.
