Parenting is a relationship. Your relationship with your child's is very special-it's her first one. It serves as a blueprint for future relationships. There are no tricks or quick-fixes.
It’s about connection, cultivating empathy, giving acceptance, honoring emotions, trust, perspective taking, effective communication, personal growth, changing your mindset about behavior and growing in peace. Together.
Emotions are huge part of my work. It’s about allowing yourself and your children to feel and not be afraid of human emotions (the entire range).
If you cary painful experiences from your past, I will assist you in making sense of your story, heal and move forward with ease and more confidence.
You do not want to burden your children with your load. It is all about being in tune with your true, authentic self and helping your child find his authentic self by giving him emotional support.
I will hold your hand and guide you through the process, give you tools, new knowledge, skills and support you on every step of the way.
You will be empowered to empower your child.
I invite you to take your child's perspective. Look at the world through the eyes of your child. It is our goal to guide them. We can't change who they are or want to be. If a child is happy playing with sticks all by himself in a busy playground full of kids, let him be. Don't rush pushing him onto the climbing equipment or forcing him to make friends. Try to put yourself into his shoes. Why is he fascinated by that stick?

You don't have to be a strict parent. You don't have give in or become permissive...There is a better way.
You are here for a reason.
Whether you want to parent differently than your parents, or you want to fine tune and sharpen your parenting skills...
You are on the path of conscious parenting...
You want to become more mindful and move toward gentle, peaceful parenting...You want to enjoy your kids, have good understanding with your parenting partner, you want to be more patient and connected...
But it doesn’t always work out that way...You feel off track, you face challenges, you lose our cool, say and do things that you regret and feel guilty...
Parenting is HARD. It's an emotional job. The love in your heart is not enough to raise emotionally healthy and well adjusted kids. You want change.
Hi! I'm Anna
A Mother of a vibrant 8 year old, sports loving girl who doesn't approve of my fashion choices. I'm not a modern day Mary Poppins or a SuperNanny, even though I get asked to go to peoples' homes and rescue them. I would be lying if I said I didn't fantasize about that for a moment.
I'm a parent educator and I have a passion in working with people. Through the synthesis of my 20 years of professional rich and diverse experience as a psychologist and educator internationally and my own tragic life experience, I now help parents to transform their most special relationships and become more mindful in their communication and build deep emotional connections and strong relationships.
You have the power. It's within you!
Frustration by your child's behavior... resentment and lack of patience toward your kids...
power struggles with your kids... loneliness and having no support
your triggers... issues with your parenting partner... overwhelm...
difficulty regulating your negative emotions.... feelings of guilt... yelling...
defiance, acting out, back talk... battle with excessive screen time
sibling rivalry... picky eating... biting, hitting and aggression... bedtime struggles...
I created the 6 step powerful R.E.V.E.A.L tool to help you stop your reactivity, use empathy and validation to listen to your child's feelings with acceptance. Listen empathically to your child's feelings to support his growth and establish emotional safety. Empower your child to problem solve. Build closeness and trust.
misbehavior? I don't use that word. I think it's punitive, disrespectful and useless. There is only behavior.
There are no quick-fixes in parenting. Your child's behavior is a communication of needs. Unmet needs. I will teach you the 6 emotional needs and help you to decode your child's most challenging behaviors, stay calm and respond instead of reacting.
