Parenting with Intention & Joy

A supportive 4-month program for moms.

- Next Program Begins February 2020 -


Parenting is a Journey of Consciousness, Intention, and Joy…

Are you concerned with the rapid pace of contemporary family life? Would you like to experience more connection, less stress, better communication, and more joy in your parenting journey?

This four-month program arose out of the need expressed by many of today’s moms to find inspiration and diverse content on key family issues, as well as support and encouragement for the journey.

Through weekly online group mentoring, monthly individual consultations, and countless resources, I designed this program to support you wherever you are on your path to parenting with intention and joy.

Are you ready to begin your joyful family journey?

Included in the Program…

  • Online parenting inspiration and support with 3 zoom group calls each month.

  • 4 monthly individual consultations.

  • Topics range from nutrition to rites of passage (Maria’s 12 essentials of family life).

  • Relevant, timely content for conscious parenting in the 21st century.

  • The loving guidance and support of a mother, grandmother, and educator with a heart for the future of family.


“Maria’s “Parenting with Joy and Intention” course was something I didn’t even realize I needed.  On the first call, I came to tears with a deep sense of being home.  I didn’t realize how much I was craving to be heard and nourished as a parent.  The combination of Maria’s amazing ability to hold safe space for the emotional battle parenting can sometimes be, and the sense of support and community from other moms going through similar challenges was exactly what I needed as a mom.  I have plenty of mom friends, but this is different - the dedicated time and space to really go deep with the real struggles and questions that every parent has.  Maria has created a course that simplifies and demystifies how to have joy in parenting.  Our culture has so many suggestions for parents, but Maria is a real life, compassionate, extremely experienced human being that has helped me bring practical, tangible and surprisingly easy “Intention and Joy” to
my parenting.” - Cori

“This program has been the
best gift that I have given myself.
Maria has truly helped me to see
that the big picture is the small details. Having the support of Maria and the group has given me so much inspiration. Each week I take away ideas that I can implement easily and I’ve experienced wonderful results within my family.”

- Carolyn

“Maria is the much needed voice of wisdom, strength and calm on this parenting journey. I’m so glad I did her program! She gave so many ideas, tools and tons of insights to incorporate with raising my kids. You can tell she has dedicated a lifetime to understanding children and helping parents to do the same. I would highly recommend her coaching and her program to any parent. Thank you, Maria!”
