Appreciation for Grow Parenting

"Hi Sarina. Its been about 8 months since you helped me tremendously with my baby girl. I was depressed, exhausted and losing my mind. I had a few phone calls with you, and my life changed. My daughter is now 14 mo old and a wonderful sleeper, and I feel I owe it all to you and the tips you taught me. Thank you again!"
-Nicole, Seattle, WA

"Sarina was incredibly helpful recently when we were struggling to cope with getting our toddlers to help contribute to cleaning up toys. She offered multiple creative ideas that have since been put into practice, and I'm happy to report that clean-up time is now much less stressful. Thanks Sarina!"
- Juliette, Seattle, WA
“Melissa is the person to call with any matters related to family.  She has helped me find focus, confidence and a plan for my growing family. Her approach is tailored and focused on the best results for you, nothing off the shelf.”
- Jenna, Seattle, WA

"Melissa, I liked the animated conversation and presentation. Normally these seminars during or after lunch put you to sleep; however, you had all my attention. Thank you so much!"

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sarina and Melissa at PEPS as they developed and delivered facilitation skills training for our Volunteer Group Leaders. They are a great team to work with – very knowledgeable on the topic, and very open to and proactive about incorporating all of our feedback. They are both personable and professional and fun!  Our group leaders who attended the training reported that they learned new facilitation and really enjoyed the training."
