Parent Testimonials

“I registered my daughter with ADD for Leticia’s Mindfulness, Attention and Concentration Series. She loved it. I attended the first class with her and afterward her dad was a bit late picking us so we took a walk. To my surprise she just walked around with me, not bouncing off the walls or anything, just being perfectly calm. I was a bit taken a back by it, really. It was wonderful! After working with Leticia for several months her behavior had improved so drastically that we were able to get her off of a 504 plan at school!” – L.P.

“Finding [Embody Play] in the community was beyond luck! My family first started taking free classes offered in our apartment complex, moved onto their donation based classes then to private mindfulness sessions for my 7-year old son. He has a trauma history, PTSD, ADHD, RAD and SPD diagnosis. As a result of the mindfulness-based play Leticia teaches, I witnessed immense growth in his ability to regulate his emotions, develop healthy attachment and concentrate. Today, I read him a story while he sat in my lap waiting for an appointment with his therapist. Three months ago he was throwing the book at my head.  Six months ago he was tearing out the pages and eating them. Today, he was able to sit quietly engaged while I finished reading the entire book. I wasn’t sure that would be possible with him, but I see a light now at the end of this tunnel.” -T.K.

“Sometimes I want to spank my child but I make a conscious decision not to. Instead, I have been practicing the skills I am learning in our Mindful Parenting Support Group [setting limitsstaylistening, playlistening and the vigorous snuggle]. When my child becomes aggressive, instead of reprimanding, I move in close, snuggle and listen. It can be hard, but I want him to know that I love him and will always be here for him no matter what. I get judged a lot in public because people just want me to make him behave. I don’t care, because I know this works and it’s the best thing for us! We need more support for parents using this approach!” – B.B.

“Leticia has done more for my son in one year than others have done in a decade of therapy. Thank you!”  B.B.

Please note that in addition to my various trainings, I are trained to support parents to learn the connection-based tools offered by the Hand in Hand Parenting approach. It is recommended to research the approach before enrolling in coaching sessions.
