My passion is children. Their uniqueness and total undivided trust in us just inspires me everyday. I am excited to guide you towards becoming a more conscious individual and parent so you can model this attitude of wellbeing and joy to them ensuring they become the greatest versions of themselves in the world. I have two boys aged 6 years old and a 10 month old. I love to check in with myself and model this self-awareness to them so they grow up with this tool in their toolkit. They inspire me to be the best person and mother I can each day. I teach Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T), a style of Influential and Effective Communication for parents as well as the Be Your Best (B.Y.B) program which suits individuals looking for more personal development as well as power in their interactions and relationships. It is my strong belief that communication is a very overlooked pillar in wellbeing. If we aren't honouring our own needs and being attentive and respectful to others needs, then we form relationships that don't support our greatest life and speak to our own self-worth.
