Your wonderings are worth investigating

Are you confused about how to approach raising a bilingual child?

Do you feel stressed and uncomfortable about leading your family through unknown circumstances – including cultural, social and educational practices?

Do you worry about how your children will cope and get along with peers who have different habits while preserving their identity in an increasingly cross-cultural and media-oriented atmosphere?

Is bilingualism and/or biculturalism important to you?

How I Partner with Parents

I support parents who want to raise confident bilingual children. I help them support their child’s early literacy and language acquisition and to feel confident on the bilingual parenting path so that they can nurture their child’s needs and bring their unique potential to life.

What Parents Say After Coaching With Me

The coaching model really worked in all aspects of my life (self, children, spouse, other relationships) even though my focus was on my 3-year old. I love that the systems approach extended to each person that was important to me.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Living in a new country with three young kids, I was concerned about the future of our culture and our language. How would our kids understand where we come from? How could we keep our language alive in our house, and with joy? There was also a lot of sibling rivalry going on and being an only child, I needed the tools to help me face it. Through this experience, I learned a lot about myself, my husband, and my family. Alice recommended a book that changed my mind on raising kids in a different culture and was generous enough to talk to me about her own experience. I am now confident that we will be able to have a positive legacy. Alice is very generous in her coaching. You can feel that she cares; she is very positive and full of ideas. She shows openness in her approach and constantly validates that you are on the path you want to be on. The most important quality in our relationship was that she was absolutely non-judgmental. I felt comfortable and free to share my experiences as a human being with her. Alice made me realize that self-care has to be a priority as well, through many little changes in my every day life. It changed the way I live and spend my time and energy. The whole family is now happier. I was very pleased that my kids and husband were able to see and feel these changes as well.
