"My son and I have loved each class we’ve taken with Ms. Somer. She creates a nurturing, calm, and yet magical environment in which the children are encouraged to be themselves, explore and learn to be a good friend. It’s a wonderful way to get to know other parents as well, and I can always count on Somer to provide sage advice when I have parenting questions or concerns."
-Sarah Bourla, mother of two

"Somer Serpe is a guiding light for our family. Her wisdom and patience have nurtured and held each of my children over the last six years. Her gentle yet powerful work within our family has been nothing short of transformative. Somer helped us define our family culture, reclaim our children and move forward together in a rhythm that prioritizes connection and relationship. Each of us has the capacity to begin anew and reclaim the heart and culture of our family; each of us has the capacity (and right!) to parent with love and joy. Somer, with tremendous grace, helps families do just that. I am eternally grateful for Somer's profound and lasting impact on my journey as a mother."

As new parents she gave us the tools, reassurance and confidence that we needed to successfully lead our boys through their early school days and helped us set a firm foundation for their future."

"To say I'm eternally grateful for Somer Serpe would be an understatement. She has shown me how to trust my innate wisdom as a mother, slow down and truly enjoy my children, and revel in the natural rhythms of the seasons.

"If you feel your purpose as a parent is to connect with your children in a profound way that allows you to confidently guide them towards a meaningful, happy life, to learn when to stay close and when and how to allow them the space they need to grow, and to truly enjoy and embrace this time in all of your lives, then Somer Serpe is no doubt part of your path. For me, she was the guide I didn’t know I so greatly needed. It’s no small thing for me to say, Somer could change your entire way of thinking of parenthood."
