I help you implement real changes in your children’s behavior

Have you listened to the advice of family and friends with children?

Have you already tried all the techniques you find in parenting books?

Have you followed the best-known childcare gurus?

Even if the answer’s yes, these pieces of advice, techniques or magic tricks might not have worked.

Why?

Because your child is unique. You are unique. Your family and home are unique.

During all the years I have been putting into practice my Proactive Parenting method, I have confirmed that:

  • If you want your children to change their behavior and overcome their developmental problems, the whole family must commit to change as well.
  • There are no magic formulas. What is available is personalized and family-tailored assessment. What really works is parents’ involvement and commitment to be the change they want to see in their children.
  • Problems can be solved, but the most efficient strategy involves making long-term changes that will prevent future conflicts for your children.

If you really want your children to improve their behavior and overcome each life stage successfully, then congratulations! You’re in the right place.

With my tailored consultation service (whether in-person or online):

  • I will get fully involved in your case to understand the source of the problem and design a custom-made plan.
  • I will provide your child and family with techniques and tailored solutions to solve current conflicts.
  • I will accompany you during the whole process of change: we will answer any questions and resolve occasional crises.
  • I will provide you with the tools to prevent and solve potential conflicts that may arise in the future.
  • You will develop a new way of understanding parenting, based on values and on the family as a system where each member influences the others.

My Proactive Parenting method allows me to solve your children’s problems, regardless of their age.

My professional experience and my knowledge aren’t my only assets.

My values are what make me who I am:

Honesty

I will always share with you my vision of your situation, even if it’s not rose-tinted. I believe that being honest will speed up your child and family’s transformation process, and above all, make it safer.

Work capacity

I am perseverant. I know that the best results are achieved through effort and perseverance. I will work to the best of my ability for the transformation that your family needs. And I expect just the same from you!

Kindness

Discipline is easier with a good dose of kindness, and changes happen more smoothly as well. During the time I work with you, your family will be as important for me as my own family.

Do you want your children to achieve solid and permanent change and feel fulfilled as a family again?
