My personal growth with Ana´s coaching has been amazing. From sleep issues to tantrums, every time she knew what was going on. [...]

"I just want my kids to collaborate without me having to threaten punishment."
"I promise myself I'll have more patience, but after a couple of days I lose it and yell again."
"I wish I knew how to calm my child."
"I´m exhausted and think about bedtime so I can get time for myself."
"I want to have more fun with my family instead of playing bad cop."
Hello and welcome!
If you haven't gone more than two days without yelling at your kids then I know you´re using punishment to correct their behavior.
The first thing I want to say is I have been exactly where you are. I was a Frustrated Parent. If you are one I am here to tell you that this is not your fault and that there is hope.
I help you move from being a Frustrated Parent to a New Generation Parent achieving higher-level happiness as a parent.
I was tired of trying all kinds of different approaches and not seeing changes.
I was tired of saying and doing the wrong things and feeling guilty.
Finally, ten years ago I discovered the reason why I was still struggling and why so many parents out there were struggling.
Once I realized that and made several KEY personal shifts, things at home finally changed and became dramatically more joyful and easier.
And since then I've been able to help other families get out of or completely avoid the frustrated trap I fell into for YEARS.
You can learn how to get out of this frustrated trap too.
HI, I´M ANA VEGA!
I´m an international Family Coach, Consultant, and Speaker.
I know about stress. I grew up with a mom who lived with severe schizophrenia, and this led me to become a Vice President in NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the largest organization dedicated to building better lives for people affected by mental illness.
I have also had a fun professional life. As an international journalist that started at the age of 18 years old, I interviewed inspiring individuals like Steve Jobs and Hollywood celebrities, and as an entrepreneur I have sold baby products worldwide with my brand MamaDoo Kids.
After becoming a mom, on paper life looked pretty perfect. But behind doors I struggled with feelings of powerless and inadequacy.
I became obsessed with studying what on earth was happening and when I found out I automatically became my friends´ informal parenting consultant.
So then I decided it was time to help Frustrated Parents become the Ninja Parents they want to be.
Technically, we parents are doing the hardest job on the planet - raising human beings - with little or no prior training and not enough support!
Can you imagine a doctor or a pilot doing their job this way?
No wonder so many parents feel stressed out. They love their kids, but they're physically and mentally drained from snapping at their kids all the time. But they just don't know what else to do.
I coach parents in general and with children living with anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, and eating disorders.
Also parents living with a mental health issue like depression or an anxiety disorder.
And children dealing with anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, depression, and eating disorders.
I also offer Mindfulness Workshops to schools for Parents and Students.
I use a unique integration of the latest methods and therapies:
· Yale University´s latest behavioral research on Parenting by Alan E. Kazdin. Certificate.
· Mindful Parenting: used in clinical settings with 100% success. Trained in program created in The Netherlands at the University of Amsterdam.
· Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program, developed by MIT scientist Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts. Certificate.
· The Science of Leadership. The Brain Academy. How our brains, genes, prior experiences, and our environment shape our behavior
· Supporting Parents of a Newborn Baby. University of Colorado.
· Co-Active Training Institute, accredited with the International Coach Federation (ICF).
· My expertise on mental health as a Vice President and Educational Leader in the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
