Mindfulness Consulting for Families and Schools

I help parents, teachers, and kids build secure relationships by using mindful movement in order to live calm, kind, and happy lives.

Peaceful Perceptions Consulting believes that students thrive, both emotionally and academically, when their teachers and caretakers know how to create compassionate relationships based on attachment theory, mindfulness, and neuroscience.

Peaceful Perceptions Consulting provides the training, professional development, and support needed for schools and families to understand and apply essential skills and practices for a child’s social-emotional health and development.  





Helping Schools, Teachers, and Families to design practical, research-based Social-Emotional Learning programs.

Students learn best when they have secure attachments at home and school.  We provide teachers with the research and strategies they need in order to build those relationships. We address childhood trauma, attachment theory, and the developing brain. We teach the impact of mindfulness on the Autonomic Nervous System and why this is critical training for all of us who work with children. 

For Schools

Mindfulness is a practice that is teachable and nonintrusive. Mindfulness is transformative  to the nervous system, to cognitive development, and to building empathetic relationships.

For Parents

Parent-child relationships are the foundation for healthy development. But relationships change as kids grow, so parents often need to shift their expectations and responses.

We strive to change relationships, not curriculum. We are dedicated to organizational development through authentic reflection.

Our training serves to transform, not add to, a teacher's role in the lives of her students. We bring ease to the overwhelming responsibilities of teaching.

We support families by teaching mindful parenting strategies, including working with challenging relationships associated with the pre-teen and teen years.


“When parents and teachers carry too much stress, they need compassion and support, not judgement and shame.”
