You can watch the replay of Cohort 1: Becoming the Conscious Parent You Never Had. All teachings were recorded live.

Every parent wants more for their children than they had in their own childhood. Every parent has good intentions for their kids, even if they aren’t communicated in healthy, functional ways. Every parent longs for their children to have happy, successful, joyful lives.

And yet, most of us don't know how to get there. We know we want to parent differently from how we were raised, but we don't have a roadmap to make it happen. 

Most of us didn’t have conscious parents, and so we may feel a little lost in our parenting journey. We may even feel like we have no idea what we're doing, and yet we desire to feel more aware than that.

So what is a conscious parent?

A conscious parent is someone who:

  • Seeks to understand themselves deeply in the process of raising children

  • Recognizes that they can only change themselves, not their children

  • Believes in the child’s soulful right to autonomy, and respects the sovereignty that our spirits crave.

I created this series of classes out of necessity. Over the past decade, hundreds of parents have sought my guidance to answer these two questions:

  • How do I not repeat the patterns from my past?
  • And how do I not mess my kids up?


The families who came to me were tired of the hacks without the healing. They were tired of scripts, tips, and tricks that perhaps helped them get through a moment, but didn’t give them the framework for how to work through a variety of moments in a conscious way.

We’re all conditioned to seek the perfect parenting manual that will solve all of our problems, and we’re told to look outside of ourselves. We’re told that if we just do more or try harder, then it will look like how it looks in the books.

That stops with this 8-week series.


Welcome to your new beginning.

Each week, we will meet live for 1-hour, where I will take you through a systematic approach to becoming the conscious parent you never had. Here’s what you can expect in our time together:

  • We will start with prioritizing self-awareness and connection, as these are the foundation for every healthy relationship.
  • Then, we will take a deep dive into our inner child and discover how to internalize the parent we always needed.
  • Next, we’ll learn how to interrupt our dysfunctional patterns, including our reactive patterns that so effortlessly arise when we’re triggered or caught in a maladaptive core belief.
  • We will have an entire class dedicated to exploring your expectations for yourself, your partner, your children, and everyone in your life. Our expectations are the root of our continued suffering, so we will learn the art of detachment.
  • The final 4 weeks are where we restructure our psyche. We start with learning tools for shifting our thoughts and behaviors from the unconscious mind to our conscious awareness.
  • Then, we will take a deep dive into the world of needs. This is a fundamental shift away from traditional parenting paradigms, which focus on parental control. Instead, we’ll consider the child-parent relational needs, which fosters a deep sense of compassion, connection, and curiosity.
  • Finally, we will learn to replace punishments & punitive discipline strategies for healthy boundaries and masterful communication. Many parents want to start with this; however, the work examined from the weeks before is the key to unlocking our true potential for connected, conscious relationships.

You can expect from every class insights, concrete strategies, reflective exercises, and Q&A. 

What You'll Learn

Expand Your Perspective: Discover how to expand your own self-awareness. Uncover your inner child and the core beliefs they cling to. Integrate the voice of your inner parent so you can finally heal the wounds that have kept you small, inadequate, and fearful.

Shift Your Mindset: Interrupt your dysfunctional patterns of behavior and begin to integrate a daily self-reflective practice that will allow you to hold yourself accountable without guilt or shame. Unlock the expectations you unconsciously cling to and find freedom from the conditioning that’s been tying you down.

Transform Your Relationships: Identify exactly how to bring your thoughts & behaviors into your conscious awareness so you can start showing up for your children the way you deeply desire. Discover the richness of needs as part of consciously attending to our relationships. Master the art of effective boundary setting without punishments, and learn how to become impeccable with your word & communication style.
