from Colleagues, Clients & Community Members

Lori has taught hundreds of clients and is a regular contributor to a variety of parenting
websites and magazines. She has been a guest speaker at universities, schools and conferences
where she shares her intuitive gifts helping others transform the way they speak to each other.

"I can't say enough about the practical advice you get from this seminar! Not only by what Lori teaches, and not only by the examples she offers, but the way she problem solves with the seminar participants and also, just the way she speaks and her demeanor during the seminar! I learned how to speak much calmer and clearer (perfect for kids!) by listening to her example! She also intently listens and strives to understand all the seminar participants- what an excellent example in empathy that was for me, as well. This seminar helped my parenting take a swift turn in the right direction. It's worth every penny."

"I just wanted to thank you. I have had quite a few books on conscious parenting but just reading and listening to your sample audios about how parenting is about being in a RELATIONSHIP has given me amazing clarity and I have had an incredible week with my nine-year-old daughter. Thank you! I will be accessing your resources as much as I can."

"My husband and I just completed the Conscious Communication course and we just cannot thank you enough for the ways this course has affected our lives. We are seeing big changes. We had the instinct, the intention and the determination for conscious parenting but lacked the skills and tools required to actually make it happen, until now.  So grateful for your amazing work and how it continues to transform our family for the better.A million times, thank you."

"I am so inspired when hearing your video messages. You are very clearly putting into words what I have felt in my heart is the right way to relate to our children. Thank you for spreading this attitude of love and respect!

Anna Woolf  |  Community Member

"I wanted to tell you that... I get it!! Lori, I get it now. I have the tools to help my son navigate negative moments with others, and do it in such a way that makes sense to him and me - and the other child or adult without me feeling stupid. Thank you. Thank you for your work. You are amazing."

Kirista Berry   |  British Columbia

"Hi Lori, I wanted to let you know, as always, the support call was so helpful. A lot to work on but I'm really starting to understand some core issues for myself thanks to your program and
 without me feeling stupid. Thank you. Thank you for your work. You are amazing." 

Kelly Hollingsworth   |  Conscious Communication Participant

"This site was like a dream come true for me and will be for other parents as well."

Ionia Ireland  |  Brain Train ADHD | Okinawa Japan

"Lori is a wealth of knowledge and a true professional in her field. She is worth every penny you will spend on this series. If you are willing to be open and put into practice the things she teaches, you will, without a doubt, have no regrets." 

Suzanne Teter  |  Pennsylvania

"Lori, I absolutely love your parenting philosophy. Reading this e-book has help to solidify and validate for me the way that I would instinctively like to parent. So thank you for validating my instincts and helping me to see when I am allowing my fears to dictate how I parent. No good decision comes out of fear. This philosophy also fits well into my beliefs as well as my educational background. So basically, I am in love. 
I was extremely excited to find your page several months ago. It was a relief to find someone like-minded who has created such a respectable platform for teaching this parenting message - this LIFE message. I believe it is imperative that we get the word out about parenting with respect, empathy, and self awareness"   

Catherine Krosnowski  |  Michigan

"Thank you so much for reminding me not to be so hard on myself. Your classes are great."

Carrie Wright | Social Worker  |  New York

"Lori! I have enjoyed the classes so much. Yesterday I was triggered and caught myself and began to investigate...found the needs and instead of beating myself up for them... my heart broke open and sobbing commenced. I have some hardened ideas beginning to be softened. Thank you!"

Jana Massey  |  Tennessee

"I love the information you are sharing on your website! Thank you for being a resource for compassion and self-awareness for both parents and children."

Kassandra Brown  |

I used your technique 4 times tonight with my two kids during dinner in a restaurant, and it worked every single time! So exciting and empowering.   

Ana Skaarup  |   Conscious Communication Participant

"I highly recommend the series. You'll get the basic steps of Lori's T.E.A.C.H tools and the fundamentals of conscious parenting and the invaluable opportunity to ask specific questions about your own situation and challenges. This is what made all the difference to our family. We were able to apply the tools immediately and see some immediate results. Within just a few weeks my own stress levels were halved. Hmm,  I might have talked myself into signing up again."

Diane Dawson  |  California

"I've been following you on here for about two and a half years. I'm the mother of four and you have been a critical part of my parenting. Thank you so much for what you do!"

Norah Staples  |  PSPK Participant

Vicky Burley  |

"Lori,  I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for not only your "real time" answer (i don't know how you do it...) but also for the extra resources specific to my question. I can tell you after a month of practicing my new tools with your insights... we have seen a major improvement in our family's everyday communication and the way we "cope" with constant "toddler whining & battles"... it's still hard work... but with more child development understanding... it's easier for the LOVE to shine through and be felt :) It's life-changing... and I have already passed on a few of your links to some friends and shared on Facebook! your work is that of an Angel, helping young souls and their families to thrive as soon as possible... in early childhood and beyond! TEACH-THROUGH-LOVE... music to my ears :)"

"I absolutely love your work. The way you deliver all this information is amazing. It has been almost six months since I started this Conscious Parenting Journey. You have taught me so much. You helped me make the shift and I will be forever thankful for all you did - and are doing for my family. I don't know where I would be without your help. You have been an inspiration to start this new page Choose Love. THANK YOU!

"I am the parent of 3 kids. I participated in your webinar on Monday this week. It was eye and heart opening, to say the least. Last night when my son went wild, I kept my cool. Previously I would have lost it."

Annie  |  Florida

"I think this is brilliant! I've noticed the difference with the way, after reading three keys (still one to go), I relate to my children in three days in and a result there is less anger and tantrums. THANK YOU!"

Thoughts From the PSPK July 2013 Participants...

"The tools are easy to apply and concrete."

"I feel so much different as a parent. I am telling my husband everything I have learned so we can do this together."

"This training has helped me identify my own feelings and my daughter's. In doing so, there has been a new level of peace, even in the moments I'm triggered. I would love to be able to share that peace with my friends and family."

"The course has re-affirmed or possibly bolstered my esteem as a parent. I strongly believe in love and teachable moments. I hope for only the best as my children continue to heal."

"The training was very well put together and executed."

It has made me so much more aware of myself as well as the damage that punitive treatment has on the developing brain and spirit of children. It is definitely a "red pill" kind of experience - you can't look at parenting the same once you have been exposed to this information. I think it really has the chance to help our world to be a better place."

I love the absolute positivity and support that Lori always showed during our webinars. Her words, encouragement and practical tools make a lot of sense and are invaluable tools if you are a parent looking to teach through love."

"Dear Lori, I bought your TEACH through Love program and I love it. Thank you for the wonderful course material."

Gauri  |  Egypt

"Wow, the mp3s are really gifts that keep on giving. They are brilliant. I absorb the most while listening on my iPod during my runs. Yesterday really blew my mind. Understanding the science behind it makes me able to feel even more compassion for where children are. It is such a relief to find your work and this whole approach. I really resonate with it and deeply want to build a solid relationship of good communication with my daughter. I am ecstatic to find this now. Mahalo a nui loa."

Angela H.  |  Connecticut

"I have read only the first two lessons and when I read I feel as though you are speaking directly to me. I have learned so much and in the past few days I have completely changed and I feel such a closer, respectful bond between my son and me. Only three days! That is absolutely amazing and I’ve referred everyone I know to you. Thank you for helping me in a way no one will understand!"

Jamie  |  Virginia

"It is amazing, amazing, amazing what a hug can do.  I shared the image about what a hug can do with my husband and he got teary eyed. He didn't think it would matter much if they hugged or not, but even he could see how much it really did matter. 
 Thank you for the lovely reminders everyday to connect and love our children."
