“Lisa offers a refreshing approach to understanding our childrens’ moods and behaviors that transcends labels and judgment. Rather than presenting quick tricks to get your child to do something, Lisa’s program offers a deeper solution: to foster self-awareness and skills as a parent to be able to respond to our kids in ways that develop their capacity for emotional intelligence, regulation and resilience. This program should be required for all parents as a foundation for not only raising healthy, connected and compassionate children, but also for shaping the next generation.”

“This course saved me!! We moved my son to a new dual language school and it was a huge transition for him @ 3yo. The first two days he was clinging to my leg crying super upset with me and then I sat down with him and went through the experience blow by blow and talked about how we could make it better, etc. using your guidance and tools and the next day at drop off it couldn’t have been smoother!!! Thank you ❤”
