Does this sound familiar?

You stay awake at night wondering how to protect your daughter from the struggles you faced growing up.

You're starting to see signs that she's losing confidence - difficult friendships, difficulty being herself, difficult moods -  and you don't know how to help.

You're worried about what will happen next if you turn things around now.  You want to keep communication strong between you, but you’re not sure how.

Imagine this...

Sleeping peacefully and waking with confidence that you and your daughter are on the right path to successfully navigate the teen years and adulthood.

Trusting that your daughter  has the tools she needs to deal with her emotions and all the challenges that will come her way.

Noticing your daughter as she responds with increasing openness and connection. Reflecting on how well you are communicating and how few conflicts you face.

These aren't things to simply imagine.

This kind of peace and confidence is possible.

It can be your living reality.

This is what the Lightkeeper Sessions are all about.

Build your Self-Love and Awareness

By healing yourself and working on your own self-growth, you support your daughter in cultivating the qualities you want for her. Throughout this course, you'll increase your own happiness at the same time as teaching your daughter through your living example.


Gain Confidence in your Parenting

When you see all the benefits your daughter experiences through your own personal growth, you'll be inspired by all the ways you can improve your parenting by improving yourself. You'll also build new strategies and tools to boost your parenting confidence even more.


Strengthen your Relationship

Throughout this course, you'll strengthen your mother-daughter bond in a whole new way; from building trust through improved communication to learning how to best resolve conflict, to understanding how to support her learning style and helping her explore her passions.


The question isn't so much, 'Are you parenting the right way?' as it is:

'Are you the adult that you want your child to grow up to be?

Carly was an absolute lifesaver when I was trying to help guide my tween daughter. I needed as much support as my daughter did.  Especially overcoming my mommy guilt when things were difficult.

She's very well educated in the emotional and educational development of tween girls.  She is in tune with the needs of both the parent and child.

Why should you learn from me?

Over the past 15 years, I've helped hundreds of moms and girls connect to their best selves and overcome all of the obstacles that get in the way.

I've also spent years reclaiming my own self-esteem. In graduate school, when I started studying women's development and learned there's a specific point in time around ages 9-13 where girls' self-esteem starts to plummet, I had a huge realization.

That's what happened to me! I hated myself for such a long time of my life. I was convinced that if I were to actually follow my heart, it would lead me to certain unhappiness. But, what ended up happening is me being depressed, anxious and feeling stuck.

And, then I started to learn that all my friends, students and clients had experienced this in different ways too- from following life paths they didn't really want to, to not standing up for themselves in relationships, to similar issues I struggled with, like anxiety, body image, and depression. I was determined to change my life and help as many other women I could, fueled by the passion that I was NOT going to teach any of that to my daughter one day. (Even though I had always secretly believed I was way too messed up to have a child!) 

I explored as many pathways as possible to overcome my own blocks with self-love and prepared myself to be the best woman and mother I can be. I started to share my strategies with moms and girls in private counseling and teaching, camps, workshops and yoga classes.

Successes I've have the pleasure to witness include: improved relationships, less stress and doubt, more joy and inner peace, more presence and less getting caught up in comparisons and 'shoulds', reports of girls feeling happier, better able to balance mood and more confident in friendships, and so much more. 

Now, I've distilled all my years of study and experience in girls’ and women’s development, counseling, education, yoga, mindfulness, creative expression and personal growth into an accessible, transformational practice for YOU.

I know you have the power and wisdom inside you to give your daughter everything you want for her. I'm honored to support you in your journey.


Carly has been an awesome support in my personal healing. She's offered various strategies and recommendations for dealing with issues and has helped me see situations in a different light.


Some of the tools she's provided me have helped me drastically with communication.

Here's what we'll cover in each part of the course:

Each session of the course is designed as a mini-workshop that you can revisit whenever you need. Individual sessions include a 5-10 minute interactive lesson, with accompanying exercises, activities and guided journaling questions, daily quotes and positive affirmations and self-care.


Part One - Getting Grounded

In Part One, you'll learn how to be more present and mindful and about the unique developmental changes and pressures your daughter will experience through her tween years, you'll get clear on what you really want for her, and gain an understanding of why your personal growth is so important to her emotional health.


Part Two - Be the Change

In Part Two, you'll focus on your own personal growth as the path to giving your daughter all the things you want her to learn. You'll build your self-love and inner power, connect with your joy and intuition and learn to forgive yourself for mistakes.

Part Three - Strengthening Your Relationship

Part Three is all about building a strong relationship that is prepared for the independence and intensity of the teen years. You'll learn conflict resolution strategies, ways to improve your communication, make time for connecting and how to bring more fun into your relationship.


Part Four - Honoring her Authentic Self

Part Four gives you the tools you need to support your daughter in the way she needs; one that aligns with her personality and learning style. You'll learn how to detect when she isn't being her true self, how to listen in a way that teaches you what she's really saying and how to help her build lifelong confidence.

Fo-Eva! (that's forever if you don't immediately get random 80's movie references). As long as this course exists, you have access to it. Anytime I update it, you'll also have access to those updates at no extra cost. 

Yes, you do! I've designed this course so you can experience benefits by mindfully practicing just one minute a day. The individual sessions are designed to be experienced in about 30 minutes or so of time each. You can take in as much as you have time for and revisit whenever you need and have more time to dive deeper. 

No! The 30-day practice element is optional. You can take this course at your own pace. 

Yes, absolutely. The themes I chose are informed by the common issues girls experience in the tween years. Yet, it's never too early or too late to make changes that will support her happiness. Any conscious, mindful mom of a girl(s) can benefit from this practice. 

There are 30 individual sessions that make up the complete course. The session material is a combination of easily digestible 10- minute audio/video lessons that include creative activities and exercises. There is also a theme, quote and guided journaling questions and suggested daily practices for each session.

I drip the course to you so you're able to focus on your present experience. You have instant access to the prep materials and part one. The other parts are opened for you once a week for the following 3 weeks after you join. 

Here's how the Lightkeeper Sessions will transform your parenting journey...



You feel like you're lost in new territory and that navigating the best ways to parent your daughter is like trying to read a map in a foreign language.



You're confident in your parenting choices. You trust that your intuition and fierce self-love are your guiding compass and best protection for your daughter's future happiness.

Carly has given me tools and advice on how to help me help myself.

Whenever I find myself in a sticky situation I find it is so much easier to access my own feelings and understand the situation. Before, it was very easy for me to get stuck in the mess of negativity I sometimes got myself into.

Most importantly, she’s helped me realize that it’s ok to feel the way I feel sometimes.
