Vanessa De Jesus Guzman: How to Implement Mindfulness in Parenting and Your Daily Life

Episode #15

Today I’m joined by Vanessa De Jesus Guzman, a former teacher, educator, licensed counselor and mom. Vanessa offers individual and group counseling, parent coaching and more. Her clients learn mindful living through a mix of play therapy, literature, art and games. She is passionate about helping kids become emotionally healthy through a focus on mindfulness and is dedicated to helping adults learn ways to strengthen relationships with their kids. Vanessa and I discuss how to start implementing mindfulness today, self-care for parents, parental stress, fostering emotional intelligence in our kids, and communication.

“Spending time with your kids is much more valuable than simply providing financially.” – Vanessa De Jesus Guzman
