Nourish & Nurture Parent Testimonials

"We look forward to this group. Getting out of the house when you have two little kids takes a lot, but my husband and I make it a priority because we gain so much from the sessions."

"I found what I'd been wanting for years -- a place to be with smart, interesting, insightful parents, to look into big issues of meaning in our lives in general, and as parents. Our sessions were one of the highlights of my month."
