Partnering to raise

happy, compassionate, resilient children

without burning out or blowing up.

Does exhaustion and overwhelm lead you to yell more than you’d like?

Learn the magically simple secret to communicating more calmly in 1 minute or less!

Kids don't come with a user manual

It’s what makes parenting one of the hardest jobs ever. Kids don’t always do what you want or expect.

Tempers flare, buttons get pushed, chaos ensues. You feel reactive, overwhelmed, tired.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be like Mary Poppins? To FIND THE FUN so the job feels more like a game?

You’d stop “shoulding” on yourself and start to feel more grounded, peaceful, and balanced.

You’d work in partnership with your children to create a home-life that feels calm, playful, and happy.

You’d feel like you’re all on the same team.

It’s possible and I can help!

Let’s tap into your magic so you can TRANSFORM THE STRUGGLES INTO SNUGGLES!

Hi! I'm Marisa

I’ve always been multi-passionate. When I was little, I had a detailed plan of what I wanted to be when I grew up: I was going to be a teacher by day, a lawyer at night, a ballerina on the weekends, and a pediatrician during the summer.

So, it’s no surprise I grew up to wear many hats. I’m a wife, mom, parenting coach, yoga teacher, and board-certified genetic counselor. 

I get how uncomfortable, overwhelming, and out-of-control it can feel to be an adult: to manage work, parenting, marriage, relationships, while trying to make time for self-care.

Parenting your child's soul while tending to your own isn't easy, but it's worth it!

It took suffering a full-blown, physical and mental burnout for me to realize that I wasn’t meant to – nor do I want to – be Superwoman.

But, I AM a super woman! There is, and will only ever be, one me. I’m divinely chosen to live in this time and place. I’ve been gifted the opportunity to partner with the unique souls, divinely chosen to be my children. I am worthy.

And so are you!

In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike.
