My name is Barbara (aka Barby) and my husband and I have two lively children, our son is 14 and our daughter is 17. After earning my Bachelors in Elementary Education and Masters in Reading Education from FIU, I taught Kindergarten and First grade in the public and charter school setting for eight years. When my eldest was born in 2003, I decided to stay at home with my children for several years. In 2009, I founded Natural Beginnings Homeschool, a home-based early childhood program incorporating nature, play and social emotional development focused on the whole child. After running that program for eight years I felt it was time to move on to a new chapter and begin working with parents on their parenting journey.
While on my journey to transform my parenting from one of control to one of connection built on authenticity and inner inquiry, I decided that my new mission was to support parents and help guide them on their path towards Conscious Parenting. I was trained and certified by Dr. Shefali Tsabary in her Conscious Parenting method and have been living my dream of coaching and guiding parents.
Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated by meditation, well-being, spirituality, the power of the mind, nutrition, everything holistic, reading, psychology, metaphysics and CHILDREN, so this feels like I’m coming home to my true essence.
