Extremely Helpful!
Maria has been an enormous resource for my family. I had trouble with both of my kids - a pre-teen daughter with anxiety and a pre-school son with strong emotions. Maria's guidance was super helpful, creative, and impressive - she had ideas that actually worked! Not to mention she is kind, patient, and understands first-hand that parenting is really hard. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!

A frazzled parent's lifeline
I can't say enough great things about Maria. With twin pre-teen girls growing up very fast and providing me with many challenges, my wife and I really needed some guidance. Maria to the rescue! She was so accommodating and patient with us as we explained all our concerns, then helped us understand how we could make some simple changes to improve things. She's a great listener and has an amazing way of helping you see the opportunities to create a better family environment. Since meeting with Maria, our family dynamic has greatly improved and we're enjoying each other so much more. With Maria's guidance I'm now confident that we can not only survive the teenage years but grow closer during them.

Thank you so much for these kind words. The greatest gift is that of connection with our children and it sounds like you've got that! Keep up the good work!
