Rebecca Thompson Hitt
Location: Oaxaca City, Mexico
Time zone: Central Daylight Time (CDT)
Rebecca Thompson Hitt, MS, MFT, PPNE is the founder and executive director of The Consciously Parenting Project, LLC. The Consciously Parenting Project began in 2007 as a collaboration between parents and professionals to support more connection in families around the world. Rebecca is passionate about helping parents to find their own path, rather than a following a formula to try to get their kids to comply. There’s nothing more important than the relationship and we need tools and information to find our way into connection when most parenting information leads to more disconnection. Using an understanding of basic neuroscience, epigenetics, attachment theory, neurobiology, the nervous system (Polyvagal Theory), and Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology, Rebecca empowers parents to co-create the connected relationships they need for their families with one-on-one family sessions, community groups, and professional trainings. She is the author of 3 books on parenting with her 4th on the way later in 2020 entitled All Relationships Can Heal.

Rachel lives in Oregon, USA with her 13-year old son. She joined the Consciously Parenting family in 2013. This began her process of repairing her relationship with her son and finding a more conscious way to parent. In her own journey she was raised by an authoritarian parent and practiced this as a school teacher, but when this began to break down in her own parenting she decided to explore other ways. Since beginning she has radically shifted the way she works with all people, using the consciously parenting methods that are both inclusive and respectful, honoring everyone no matter their age or status. She completed the 2-year training and is here and ready to hold space and share experiences with others.
Her availability is flexible (within her waking hours). She is offering both 1 on 1 and group support. Services are low cost.

Jen is the wife of a space geek and homeschooling mom to two little ones. She knew when she became a mom that she wanted to parent differently than she experienced growing up. She read the usual books, took classes on birth and breastfeeding, and set out to Do Parenting Right. Then she was blessed with an intense, challenging, incredible little person who didn’t do anything the way the books said he would! Jen’s early parenting journey was difficult and emotional. She was fortunate to find supportive community that helped her adapt to her son’s needs, and when she found Consciously Parenting things really began to shift in her family and in her relationships with her children and her partner. Consciously Parenting gave her the tools and framework to grow, heal, and connect with herself and her son, and to respond instead of react in intense, emotionally heated moments. As Jen has found more joy and connection in parenting, she has felt called to support other families doing this work to heal and grow, especially families of young children. When she’s not building with Lego or making another batch of dino nuggets, Jen enjoys travel, scuba diving, knitting, and ballet. Jen is a certified Holistic Family Consultant through the Consciously Parenting Project’s 2 year training program.
Her availability is primarily afternoon, exact availability varies by day. (Eastern time)

Christine is a former high school Chemistry teacher turned stay at home homeschooling mom to her 3 daughters. After having little support when becoming a new mom, she got involved with a local La Leche League group. She felt called to help other moms who were needing extra support by becoming a Leader in the group. After a few years (and moving states) she decided to retire from La Leche League to pursue other avenues of supporting families. She found The Consciously Parenting Project and began taking member courses with Rebecca. This brought healing and transformation to herself and her family. It was such a profound experience she wanted to share this work with the world. She is now in training to become an Holistic Family Consultant through Consciously Parenting in order to support families to parent consciously and heal/grow their relationships with one another through connection. None of this would be possible without the love and support of her wonderful husband and kids.

During this time she became fascinated with understanding the root cause of illness and prevention, rather than managing symptoms. It lead her into the world of energy therapy, meditation and onto a path of profound self-discovery. This kindled her passion for Functional Medicine – and in the process she qualified as an acupuncturist and yoga teacher, and opened her own integrative therapy clinic in 2010.
Working with hundreds of clients over the last decade, Natalia realised that a significant element underlying the health issues and emotional traumas presenting in her clients was largely due to the way they were parented as children.
When she became a mother herself, many new stresses, doubts and fears came to the surface – which gave her the perfect opportunity to keep learning and exporing the art and practice of parenting. This deep enquiry has progressively enabled her to enjoy motherhood more than she ever could have imagined and helps her to meet ongoing challenges with increasing grace and ease
Her mission is to contribute in any way she can to liberating people from the looping unconscious and destructive patterns that can weave their way through our experiences – and provide space for more conscious, loving relationships to form. She believes harmonising the parent-child dynamic is central to this process.
Natalia is a member of The Consciously Parenting Project as she feels it encompasses all of the values she holds dear and it provides a platform where she can actively connect with parents around the globe.
Living in Ireland with her husband and two beautiful children, Gabriella (6) and Sebastian (5) – her vision is to be part of a world with healthier, happier parents and more empowered children.
Natalia is available Monday to Friday, 5:30 am to 7:30 am or 8 pm to 10 pm. Saturday or Sunday 8 am to 12 pm.
Durante este tiempo, se interesó mucho en la prevención de las enfermedades lo cual la llevó a incursionar en el mundo de las terapias energéticas, la meditación y la llevó a buscar un camino de profundo autodescubrimiento.
Finalmete, descubrió su pasión por la medicina funcional, y en dicho proceso se calificó como practicante de Medicina China y profesora de Yoga, abriendo su propia clínica de terapias integrativas en 2010.
Trabajando con cientos de pacientes, en los últimos 10 años, Natalia observó que lo que padecían muchos de sus pacientes eran problemas de salud y traumas emocionales que se presentaban en gran parte de ellos debido a la forma en que ellos habian sido criados como niños.
Cuando Natalia se convirtió en madre, se enfrentó con muchas tensiones, dudas y nuevos temores, lo que le dio la oportunidad perfecta para seguir aprendiendo y explorando el arte y la práctica de la crianza de los hijos.
Su profunda investigación no solo le ha permitido ayudar a sus pacientes sino que también le ha permitido progresivamente disfrutar de la maternidad más de lo que nunca podría haberse imaginado y le ha ayudado a enfrentar los desafíos con mayor facilidad.
Su objetivo y aspiración es ayudar a las personas a liberarse de los patrones destructivos e inconscientes que se presentan en nuestro camino a través de nuestras experiencias como padres y proporcionar un espacio para que se formen relaciones más conscientes y amorosas.
Natalia es miembro del Conscious Parenting Project ya que este abarca todos los valores que ella aprecia y profesa, proporcionando una plataforma para ayudar y conectarse con padres de todo el mundo.
Natalia vive en Irlanda con su esposo y sus dos hijos, Gabriella (6) y Sebastián (5).
Su objetivo es ser parte de un mundo con padres más felices y saludables junto a niños más empoderados.
