Jaclyn is a mom, a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, certified yoga teacher, mindfulness meditation teacher and Founder and Director of Mind Body Spirit Moms in the San Francisco Bay Area. She specializes in supporting parents who have anxious children.
Realizing the power of the Parenting By Connection tools to support her professional work as a therapist as well as her personal life, Jaclyn enrolled in the certification training and has been utilizing these tools with her clients ever since, and with her son for his whole life. She feels so blessed to have been introduced to these effective tools for raising kids that bring her family deep joy, laughter and connection, with lots of permission and encouragement for good, healing cries.
She loves sharing these tools with parents seeking support for their children, particularly parents who feel hopeless and frustrated by their use of more traditional reward and punishment approaches without lasting results. Jaclyn enjoys giving talks at schools, offering Mindful Parenting workshops at corporations and facilitating family-friendly yoga and mindfulness retreats locally and internationally.
