For the last 16 years, I have been exploring the intersecting paths of childbirth, parenting, unschooling, and mindfulness. What I have learned from my experiences is that becoming the parent and person we want to become inevitably involves letting go of deeply-held beliefs about children, parenting, and ourselves. Most of us have decades of conditioning to unravel, and it's hard, challenging work! But, the rewards of relating to ourselves and our families from a place of alignment and connection are immense.
Through my blog, podcast and workshops, I've had the huge pleasure of connecting and sharing with other parents who are on this deschooling journey. I now work with parents to help them create the space in which they, and their children, can live, learn and thrive.
Every two weeks, I chat with an unschooling parent about their experiences of learning beyond school. Together, we deep dive into all the topics that typically come up when we leave the school environment, from how children learn, to meeting the needs of our neurodivergent children, to dealing with our own deep conditioning.
Join the conversation!

"I felt like your workshop gave a lot of permission for us to trust in ourselves, just as we are learning to trust that our children can trust themselves. The idea that the things we want for our children are also what we need. There’s so much freedom when we can let go of trying to control how we think things ‘should/could’ go." - Donna
"Your workshop came at the perfect time for me as we had deregistered our daughter from school that week. I had been tirelessly researching what she needed but hadn't stopped to think about what I needed, and the workshop was a gentle reminder that it is ok to pause and give myself time to heal too." - Rhonda
