I have almost a decade of experience learning how to parent in ways that are more aligned to who I am and the values I deeply hold: fairness, freedom and unconditional love. As an unschooling parent, I have done much work healing my life so I can continue to grow into the parent my children need and deserve + the parent I want to be.
I have a 9-year old and a 2-year old and together, we are learning how to be in relationship with each other & the world, how to nurture our own respective lives and passions and how to offer back our gifts to the community for healing, joy and freedom.
I have also been dismantling internalized oppressive beliefs I have as an immigrant woman growing up in a colonized land (Philippines) & in a very authoritarian household with fundamentalist Christian beliefs. It’s an ongoing work and it very much informs how I approach parenting and unschooling/self-directed learning.
While I don’t consider myself an “expert” in child-rearing (nor do I consider myself a coach,) I am here to provide you support as you tune into your own guidance and process in your own parenting journey. I am here to support you as you examine your life, get unstuck in where you feel blocked and create the life with your kids that you most feel authentic + abundant. I am a truth teller and I tell you things you may not want to hear. But I am also committed to reflect back to you the wholeness & wisdom you already possess as well as help you feel more grounded & aligned in your path as a parent seeking personal & collective liberation.
HOW IT WORKS
I currently work best offering support by combining the following:
- initial questionnaire
- a 30-minute session via phone call/Skype
- brief/regular check-ins via text or instant messenger for the week
We start with you answering questions to help me focus on what you need support in the most. We then schedule a 30-min phone call where we talk about your most pressing concern, ask clarifying questions and provide a combination of encouragement, guidance & support. I then email you a summary/highlights of what we talked about and check in with you via text or instant messenger the following week.
Each session is only $40 and we can do a weekly session, bi-weekly or monthly session, depending on your needs.
I offer sliding scale and a few scholarships for those who need it.
I also welcome those with means to gift a session or more for parents from marginalized communities.
I only have limited spots open so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are feeling called to work with me in this way.
