Neuroscience research informs us how important environment and the first years are to healthy development. Parents should be able to find easy and practical answers.

Raising children is a marvelous journey, but not an easy one. Parents should get all the help they need.
My mission is to partner with families on this journey and help their children develop to their potential.

How the consulting sessions work

The type of consulting sessions I offer are ideal for parents who have young children and want to give them the best environment to promote healthy development. 

As soon as a baby is born their brains are wired to seek information about the world and use it  to develop abilities needed to survive and thrive. During the first years of life (from birth to around 7 years old) the child's brain is developing; however, the development of the brain is totally dependent on the richness of the environment and people who assist. If children are in a stimulation-poor environment, they will not develop to their potential. Partnering with parents is the way to guarantee the creation of a rich environment.

Child Development Milestones

What to Expect

Every child is different and in order to give her the right set of rich experiences, we need to understand the child well and in which stage of development she is in. I will consult with parents on the phases of their child's development and what to expect in each phase from 0 to 6 years old. I'll identify what children need the most in each phase of their development, helping parents discover their child's competencies and abilities. Together we can offer the right stimulus at the right time to promote healthy development.

If you are wondering if your child is developing as expected or you are not sure how to promote the best environment and interactions to help your child to develop to their potential: this program is the right one for you.

Challenging Behaviors

What to Expect

What are the Challenging Behaviors in the first years of a Child's life and how do I navigate those Phases with Positive Strategies and Wisdom?

In the first years of all children's lives, they go from total dependency on a caring adult to independence in many areas when on a healthy path. However, with the gain of independence children also develop behaviors that are not so easy to deal with. As soon as children start to develop they also start to test limits and to gain some control over their lives, such as not eating the food you prepare or hitting and biting. This means that sometimes they don't want to follow the adult’s instructions or they want to ensure they also have some say in each situation. This can cause tension between adults and children.

In this program, we will talk about the challenging behaviors you are experiencing with your child, and plan useful strategies to deal with the behaviors in a respectful and positive way. 

Parents will receive individual coaching that applies to their children from 0 to 6 years old.

This plan includes 8 one-hour online sessions with me.

“I had the privilege of getting to know Sergia's work when my youngest son needed help. She helped him in a practical and uncomplicated way. She went on to challenge my daughter to acquire new skills and face some of her fears.

Sergia has become a valuable counselor in the areas of development and behavior and is the person I turn to when I have questions or don't know what to do. In addition to being an excellent professional, she is a person with whom I have the pleasure to have as a part of our lives.”

Flavia Martins

“Sergia played a crucial role in our family. My youngest was biting at school. A problem that seemed so simple had snowballed. We were lost and upset with everything that was going on. Our daughter had even been suspended from classes when she was just a year and three months old. In the first session, Sergia gave us valuable tips on how our child could express herself. Before long she was another child: much happier, less agitated, and without aggressive behavior.

We are immensely grateful to her and recommend her with our eyes closed.

Renata Katz

Sergia is a highly competent and engaged professional. She has done great work with my son in socialization and literacy.

With a sensitive eye and in a respectful way, she has been working on his difficulties developing his abilities,  and he just loves it!

I am grateful to God for putting her in our lives.

Daniela Faria

“It is clear how well my son's development and growth have been with Sergia's accompaniment.  Her commitment to recognizing the particularities of his needs and the techniques used are the main differentials of this very productive journey we are having.”

Uliana Barroso Menezes Fleury

“Sergia is one of those human beings that when you meet her you don't want to be far from her. She has a huge amount of knowledge and shares it with lots of love. She has been doing a fantastic job with my son's academic team. She guides and trains his teachers in a very assertive way which has brought about excellent results. I am very grateful and happy to have this consultancy!
