Helping You Become A More Centered, Present, and Mindful Parent

Helping Parents One Breath at a Time

Parenting is a rewarding, but challenging job. While many people are comfortable talking about the positive aspects of parenting, the difficult parts are often not discussed. The reality of parenting can involve the baby blues, sleepless nights, dealing with temper tantrums, balancing work and family, and other challenges.

Learning to cope with the difficult parts of parenting can help you be more present with your children and feel more satisfied in this very special role as mother or father.
