I was very skeptical but my kids are now great listeners, calmer, and self-motivated!
I am so happy I found Ana. She has completely transformed our overall happiness as a family! Life as a mom of three, aged 7, 4 and 2, one of them with a sensory processing disorder, is busy! As much as I love juggling it all, it has been exhausting and really frustrating. First, Ana guided me on how to improve my relationship with myself. I am now prioritizing my needs and honoring them so much more. We then moved onto different puzzle pieces to improve my parenting effectiveness. It’s the best investment I’ve ever made! – Sonia Ribas, Health Coach -Fertility, Pregnancy and Postpartum. soniaribascoach
From sleep issues to tantrums, every time she knew what was going on with us and what I needed and what my son needed.
Working with Ana has been so worthy!
My personal growth has been amazing. She helped me in several occasions since my son was a baby.
She not only has the most incredible instinct and a great insight to understand human nature but she provides you with the right tools to deal with the situation.
Ana has saved me lots of headaches and tears! Now I take better care of myself and feel much more empowered and self-confident as a mom.
– Maria Aranda, a single mom.
Ana´s program has been life-changing for us. We have all been transformed!
Because of what we learned we manage to be more empathetic towards our child, even when we´re challenged.
And he has benefited greatly. He´s become more self-confident and motivated as a result.
I have been able to bring out my best self. When I do, I feel such a remarkable connection to my son. And more connection means less stress for everyone.
I'm so grateful for Ana and for how supportive and non-judgmental she is. I couldn´t think of a better way to invest in our family.
The Happy Families program has healed our whole family -- I didn't expect that.
5 out of 5! Our family will never be the same!
Our favorite part was realizing how deeply our childhood was shaping our parenting and the perfectionistic standards we had with ourselves and our two sons. This was so helpful, especially as we became more aware of our automatic reactions.
Ana just gets it on a whole other level. She is a true empath. You will leave feeling both understood and empowered.
Our family will never be the same: we are more connected by love and compassion like never before.
Even our marriage has improved because of what we learned with the Happy Families program!

Ana helped us to reduce conflict and stress in the family.
I happen to be a trained, certified professional in the field of behavioral science, with over 20 year of experience in the field of parenting counseling.
But I am also a mom to a spirited, talented 15-year old boy, and sometimes I need an outside perspective on our relationship!
The synergy of teachings about mindfulness together with parenting techniques is innovating and definitely help to reduce conflict and stress in the family.
I highly recommend to any parent or grandparent to try out her program or to consult her on any difficulties that arise on our daily quest to raise healthy and happy children.

I feel closer to both my children than before and that is what I really needed.
I lost my husband and my children lost their dad two years ago. Both of my children were very close to him.
My oldest has autism and is visually impaired and my youngest was very little when she lost him so I tried to compensate by being overindulgent with both of them.
Before working with Ana, I was very unsure of how to deal with my grief while raising them and at the same time how to establish healthy boundaries. 'Am I being mean? Is it okay to set such limits?' I was really unclear.
Now I'm incredibly aware of the dynamics in the home and very confident when I set limits the right way!
– Glory Kath
My teenage daughter and I were having different issues typical of this phase but now we feel cured.
Eye-opening! I´ve become very conscious of my automatic responses when something bothers me so now I am able to respond instead of reacting. This means less fights and that I don´t have to feel guilty like I used to.
Also the pressure of being perfect just stopped, so now we get to be us and work on what each of us wants to be without the pressure factor.
Ana´s Happy Families program was completely life changing for us!
– Carmen Blanco
We had never experienced anything like this before.
One of the main issues in our family was the fighting and conflict between our two children.
Before it worsened, we decided to try Ana's Happy Families process and what a game changer!
It has created a connection between the four of us in a way that we didn’t know was possible.
And on top of that, what we learned with Ana, like for example how our relationships can grow after a conflict, was relevant and helpful to our marriage as well.
All I can say is don’t remain stuck in challenging family situations! Invest in yourself and your family's future.
There IS something you can do and you are all worth it!

Ana changed my mindset, helped me build momentum, and got me on the right track. Her continued support has been invaluable.
I have an adult son. We have gone from not talking for two years to being great friends. We still have our differences but we can still be friends.
I didn’t understand his perspective and he didn’t understand mine. We were really in a rut but now I see a future with him in my life.
As result I have also made many positive changes in my lifestyle and as a parent to an adult child.
I recommend her very much!
– Miriam Azoulai, founder of MIRIGAL OIL
With Ana's guidance I was able to completely change the dynamics of the family.
I was beginning to lose hope about improving things at home, then I found out about Ana's program.
I thought that my two boys, aged 11 and 9, had stopped listening to me, and was finding it particularly frustrating how the older one was increasingly talking back to me, defying every single request I made.
After working with Ana I discovered that the kids were ready to listen. I just needed the correct approach and technique to set limits.
At first, I was a bit skeptical about how far her approach will get us. Soon enough I started to see changes!
I recommend Ana's program to any parent who wants to improve the way the kids are reacting to them, since it has truly been life changing for my family!
Not only Ana helped tremendously in a pretty short amount of time with our daughter but with our relationship/marriage as well.
My husband and I were struggling with parenting our 4 year old. We weren’t sure about effective boundaries, discipline, or even communication. We took quite a few different positive parenting courses but it’s a lot of work and reading. It was also hard to get us both on the same page with those other programs. I found Ana, we met with her in person once a week, and not only did she help tremendously in a pretty short amount of time with our daughter but with our relationship/marriage as well. We also have the tools and weekly summaries that we can revisit anytime we need a little refresher. - Kelly
None of the other methods of "disciplining" were working for us.
This program is gold!! Just what I needed. Ana´s program really helped me understand what my son needs. And the way she gives specific actions to take, with suggested words!
I often find myself thinking when reading about parenting, "But how exactly do I implement that??" I feel like I'm left hanging. This program does not leave me hanging. Thank you! We all want to be awesome parents; we just don't know how.
This is consistently the BEST parenting program out there.
Ana´s is the best advice I've found so far on what to do when we, the parents, are angry. Most say something like, "Stay calm!" which makes me say, "Like HOW?"
ust the most simple words have helped me to find a better version of myself as a mom and even as a wife. I have written on a wall at home to always choose love, love is patient, love is kind, love protects, love will get me home
