    "Mario helped us to bridge our communication gap that created distance, misunderstanding, and hurt feelings. From our work with Mario, we cultivated communication skills that fostered a deeper parent/teen connection. We established working agreements with clear & safe boundaries. It’s about successful communication - conscious, harmonious, and compassionate communication that supports each other to be the best version of ourselves."

    We can do this together.

    "I learned practical ideas that I could put into action the very next day in my classroom."

    Pre-school teacher.

    "She challenged me to self-reflect, observe, then make adjustments that worked with individual children."
    Elementary teacher

    "We love Amy! She is a talented coach who leads with her heart. Amy has a valuable ability to see both the forest and the trees, from a parent, educator, and child perspective. Amy’s style will make you feel simultaneously respected, nurtured, and understood, and despite smoothly raising two amazing daughters to adulthood, she will never make you feel judged or as if a difficult child is that way because you are parenting the wrong way. She will teach you, a lot, without you even realizing you are being taught. Five stars; highly recommend."

    - Parent

    "I was able to immediately bring this tool back to my classroom with fresh insight and a new lens to see each of my students with greater clarity. I am able to see where I fit in and how my preferences inform and sometimes cloud my ability to see the child for who they present at each moment. Powerful!"
