I am lucky that I naturally have a positive outlook on life even though it has not been smooth sailing!  Like you, I am many things, but in my role as the founder of Parent Do Overs, I am a full-time working mom with four children. When I had my first child, I had no idea what I was doing. I remember thinking thank goodness she doesn’t do much besides eat, sleep, and yes, also cry, cry, cry.  I was going to be the mom who took my child everywhere. My child was going to come along on MY ride, and we were going to have fun together. Well, my beautiful daughter wanted none of this and cried in every new situation. She turned out to be my best awakener by letting me know that SHE was going to lead the way if we were going to survive her early years. It still took me several years to get out of the mindset that I had to be the perfect parent. 

The Doer, The Fixer, The Everything

12 years ago, I was incredibly lucky to encounter someone extraordinary, Dr. Shefali Tsabary and her revolutionary method of Conscious Parenting. Dr. Shefali explained to me that when we have our children, we pre-conceive what their lives will be even before they are born. We then parent our child according to this fantasy and are therefore parenting a child that does not actually exist. Wow, I was blown away! 

Since that encounter, I began following a path of deeper self-exploration and when time became more available to me, I added hundreds of hours of yoga, meditation, and I delved further into the learnings from various spiritual leaders and a global community of spiritual seekers. This journey has been priceless!  It’s never ending and continues to fill me every day! 

My Do Overs method is extrapolated from the teachings of Dr. Shefali and from spiritual leader and yoga expert, Param Atma Stacey Hirschmann. It combines the wisdom of eastern philosophy with theories from western psychology.

There were so many things I wish I had known earlier and done differently. However, time only moves forward, so I accepted that life is a journey and that it’s never too late to take Do Overs to heal relationships and find self-fulfillment. 

 I encourage you to make a list of the things you would like to Do Over and go for it!  If this feels challenging, I am here to help guide you.
