Never feel like an inadequate parent again.

Hey, I am Pia,

I help moms live abundantly, even when life throws challenges their way!

I’ve devoted my life to supporting moms with evidence-based, mindset shifting parenting approaches that make me stand out in a sea of parenting coaches & therapists. I share the same tools and strategies that made me feel fulfilled, authentic, and at ease every day of my motherhood journey.

After studying human development and psychology, and earning a master’s degree in special education from Cologne University, I became a certified parenting coach and certified hypnotherapist in the US and have also trained in healing trauma. In the past 20 years, I’ve founded A Temporary Home for Neglected Babies and Toddlers in Germany and started the Beginning Well non-profit and published the same named book: Beginning Well: Empathy from the very beginning. In my private practice I’ve helped hundreds of parents and their children transform inner stress, emotional overwhelm, anxiety disorder, attachment issues, eating issues and low self-esteem into deep connection, self-respect and self-love.

My Beginning Well Approach To
Successful Parenting

boils down to two simple principles:

Bid farewell to outdated parenting approaches and prioritize yourself.

While you may feel that you’re too busy to take a break or to practice self-care, the fact is, if you are out of balance and unaware of what is going on inside of you, your child will soon be out of balance too.

Even newborns perceive everything

We traditionally think children are unaware, incapable, undeveloped, BUT they are not! As newborns they are highly intuitive and sensitive.
Even unborn children recognize the well-being of their mother in the womb; each memory is stored in their subconscious mind..

How is the relationship with yourself?

I soon realized how much my feelings, inner mood, and stress were connected with her well-being. I realized that before I could give her my best, I first had to discover what was going on inside of me.

Our mindset determines children’s development for the rest of their life

How we treat ourselves and interact with our children greatly impacts our relationship. Imagine if we treated our best friend like we are an authoritarian, controlling boss acting over their head, without paying conscious attention to their feelings and needs.

They would definitely not feel understood, seen, safe, or valued, right? The same is true of our children.

The way we think about our child, acknowledge their unique being and mindfully respond to their needs, determines their development: their confidence, trust, self-esteem, feelings of worthiness and safety. The first years determine their development for the rest of their life.
