  • My 5 yr. old son was throwing tantrums and creating major stress in our family.  After two sessions, Bette found the real issues and gave me the tools and encouragement to be a better parent. After a few weeks, my son's behavior improved dramatically and just keeps getting better!   CM Thousand Oaks

  • I took Bette's Mommy and Me class with my 14 month old daughter.  On the first day of class we were welcomed by the most bubbly, happy teacher I have ever met.  My daughter just loved Bette.  She really had a way of relating to the children and becoming more fun to watch than Elmo.  She related to the parents with her endless support for our problems and refreshing wisdom to answer our many questions.  I have a special needs son who is 3 1/2 which poses its own difficulties for our family and Bette offered her support and referrals for us and did it out of the generosity of her heart.  She is a ray of light that brightened up our class. 

  • When you meet someone like Bette who you instantly connect with and trust it is like a gift.  She inspires me to be a better parent.  Being a wife and mother, Bette's firsthand knowledge, genuine concern for people and passion for what she does makes her an extraordinary coach, therapist, friend and security blanket you don't ever want to be without.

  • I don't know what to say to you first.  How completely wonderful, professional, honest, available, congruent you were, and therefore you were a fantastic speaker.....or....when I grow up, I want to be just like you!!!!!  I have heard from people, who said their time spent with you on Sunday was extremely valuable.  That they learned a lot, and took away some tools.  I myself took away, that "ignoring" can be "honoring" and that it's time I stop trying to make my son "do" the things I think he should be doing.  That it's up to me to continue to model, and pray for the best. (and won't it be great if he decides to do (some of those things when he's an adult!!!)  You made it safe, you were authentic, and I really enjoyed you personally and professionally!  Please keep me apprised of when you are speaking in the area (don't be shy) as I would love to hear more of what you have to say.  Thank you also for the handouts!  I'm giving them to my three friends that couldn't come.
  • Thanks for the great class last night.  We were very pleased and sure appreciated all the "food for thought."  T. and I talked a great deal about the class.  We're looking forward to the rest of the series.

    It even drove me to have a conversation with my mother-in-law this morning that I had avoided because I wasn't sure how to approach the issue.  I think it went well.
