“After only 3 sessions with Sandra I feel much more reassured of being able to provide the right environment at home for my son Neil. Her expertise in child development and Montessori gives her a great advantage and insight into helping families deal with parenting questions they might not have answers to. Sandra provides multiple detailed tailored solutions to tackle an issue by understanding your family’s individual dynamic. I see Sandra as a confidant and a friend who will objectively give thought through, well researched and practical parenting tips. She also lends a patient ear to your worries or frustrations regarding parenting. I'm so glad that our paths crossed, as her guidance has made a positive change in the way we parent and in our son Neil as well.”

"Working with Sandra has been the best decision I've made as a parent. I've seen a dramatic decrease in the number of tantrums my daughter has and I can see her building self-confidence and motivation. Sandra's expertise and knowledge of early childhood development has equipped me with the tools to avoid meltdowns. Her one-to-one coaching is custom tailored to my unique challenges with my daughter and she has guidance for every milestone and obstacle Ellie faces. After our first session, I saw immediate results. Her intuitive and simple approach to parenting has helped me observe my own behavior and make small changes so that I can be the best parent I can be. Working with Sandra has transformed my daughter from a little trouble-maker to a big helper! Before working with Sandra, I was constantly wondering if I could improve on my parenting. What am I doing wrong? Why won't she get dressed in the morning? Is this normal? How do I get her to listen? It's not that I thought I wasn't a good parent, it's that I knew how incredibly important the first 6 years of life are and how much influence I have on building my daughter's foundation in life. Now, I don't have a running commentary of questions in my mind. I am confident in my parenting and my daughter is learning how to process emotions and is engaged in joyful activities all day long. Working with Sandra has taken away my self-doubt. I no longer second guess my decisions and feel confident that I am doing all I can to be the best mom to Ellie and am setting her up for success. I cannot praise her enough and recommend her to every parent with full confidence.”

"I am the proud mom of an 18 month-old angel. Motherhood has been the most important and rewarding role in my entire life, but it has also been more challenging than I ever imagined. My journey as a mom is just beginning and I’ve learned that there are amazing resources to make it easier. Sandra is definitely one of those resources! I had the privilege to attend one of her workshops and was inspired by her knowledge, authenticity and heart warmth. She guided us through so many topics and gave us a whole new perspective on children’s expectations, challenges and needs. She also provided several practical tools to support their development at home. I would recommend her services and am looking forward to learning more from her."

"I met Sandra during a seminar she was hosting, and truth be told I was a bit skeptical over the seminar since people have been raising kids forever without seminars, but I thought more knowledge can't hurt and went. Sandra spoke about changes toddlers go through during her seminar, what to expect and how to help stimulate and build your child during this critical time period. The biggest take away I took from the seminar is that our toddlers are no longer babies but rather little people. While they can't quite speak eloquently yet they still have the ability to understand us and want to be a part of our world so communicating with them and integrating them into our activities is key. Later Sandra did a video call session with me where I had a chance to have a more personalized chat with her. I changed many things in my day to day to fit Sandra's suggestions and the advice she gave was actually priceless. A few examples: I always give a 10, 5 or 1 minute shout out before leaving anywhere instead of just taking my toddler and going; we bought Skye a little piano so she can sit next to her father when he is playing his big piano; and we reorganized her room and play area to make toys more accessible and put away toys that where for babies. These are just a few examples of changes we made following meeting with Sandra - and it has done wonders! Skye is so engaged throughout the day and is truly tired out when it comes to bed/naptime. It's a beautiful thing to see; in turn making Skye a happier girl and us the happiest parents. I will definitely be using Sandra's counseling services as Skye continues to grow and blossom into a little girl, and would recommend her to anyone who is a caring parent looking to understand these transitional periods and do right by their child."

“Sandra is a rare person in this world. Her unique blend of professional and personal traits allows her to be a tremendous professional as well as leader in her community. What really sets her apart is her compassion, her ability to engage and her empathy for where you happen to be that day. I don’t know whether Sandra realizes the positive impact she has on the people that see her everyday, but she is truly an honest, positive, earnest being. She embodies the values I wish to see in my community, and her reflection can be seen in all the parents, children and families she touches.”

"Every time I leave a session I feel inspired, motivated and grounded. Sandra has provided me with tools, helping me to discipline my daughter in a productive way that has also helped me on my journey of self –realization. I would recommend Sandra to anyone looking to better their lives, and the lives of their families through her model of Whole Family Wellness. She is a lovely being."

"Having Sandra in our lives, not only as a family coach, but someone we could count on with anything we threw her way, was such an enlightening learning experience. There is nothing quite like it. The time and the effort that she put into our family wasn’t just a ‘per session’ thing nor a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. Sandra really took everything into consideration when planning our sessions and helped us learn through the whole process. She gave us the tools to continue to grow and learn as a family. We are so incredibly grateful to have worked with her. Thank you Miss Sandra!”
"Children don’t come with handbooks when they’re born, or at least we never got one when our boys were born. We had an idea of what kind of parents we wanted to be, but getting there was the tough and confusing part. Sandra didn’t only help us do this, but she helped us improve on our lifestyles as well. Getting more organized with our time and helping us figure out simple solutions that helped us tremendously. Having her outside perspective was invigorating and eye opening.”

"My husband and I reached out to Sandra at a time when we felt we were struggling with our teenagers. We were disagreeing and arguing with the kids frequently and also struggled to get them to help around the house. It really felt like the “teenage years” were in full swing. At our initial meeting, we felt so comfortable with Sandra. We were able to open up to her immediately. She never made us feel badly about our past choices and decisions. On the contrary, she made us feel understood and validated. Even when my husband and I didn’t agree on an issue, Sandra made it okay. She helped us understand how to interact with our kids in a more positive way. Through our sessions, I could feel I was becoming more patient with our kids. My favorite part of the process was when Sandra worked with our kids in our home. I could see that they responded well to the way she spoke to them and trusted them with responsibility. When my children were given the opportunity to excel, they did. I can’t tell you how much working with Ms. Sandra has changed the life of my family and how much I have learned from this experience. Thank you, Ms. Sandra!"
