"Happiness is determined more by one's state of mind than by external events." -Dalai Lama. I am here to help you and your family to achieve the goal of happiness. The benefits are far beyond merely "feeling good". Happiness leads to increased success at finding a partner, healthier marriage, stronger relationships, better physical and mental health, and a long life (up to ten years longer!). Happiness is an achievable goal, something we can deliberately cultivate through practice and effort much like any other skill. Would you like to start your journey to happiness?

I integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which is a mind-body approach, Mindfulness (such as meditation or yoga), Body-Mind awareness tools, "Art as a healing tool", play, embodied art, interpersonal neurobiology, and Nonviolent Parenting (an empathy-lead approach) to help you, your children and family:

Heal from trauma, better manage stress; deal with emotions like anger, fear and sadness; develop clear and compassionate communication; improve attention or concentration; cope with painful life events; reduce chronic physical pain; cultivate tools to move from reactivity to receptivity; reduce addictive behaviors; enhance positive emotions; and increase interpersonal skills.

The Wholistic Connection's Groups

Parenting with empathy, compassion and connection

Have you ever been surprised at the level of frustration you've felt toward your child? Raising Children is so difficult, yet most parents don't get much support to build skills and techniques. This ten session private course will help parents to learn a philosophy and practice of parenting that is based on empathy and compassion, yet is not permissive. Topics will include: the science of brain development and child development; teaching emotional intelligence by learning a language of feelings and needs; setting respectful and clear boundaries and creating the parenting relationship you want with your child. MANDARIN available.
