My mission is to enlighten youth to the power of their mind and to teach them to use empowerment as they face challenges in life.
My passion is teaching kids to focus on their strengths, how to increase their self-confidence and how to attract their dreams and passions of mind.
I have been involved in transformation for the past 25 years. My coaching technique centers on the ontology (Being) of a person and getting to their source or story (or “What Happened”). One’s interpretation is critical as it opens up the way to authenticity and a new creation of “What’s Possible”.
I am a certified WISDOM Coach for Kids. I work with kids, through stories, to build authentic relationships with families and empower them in their lives.
Families are always committed to work-ability!

Karen Kane, MIT, CHt
Fall City, WA
Hello, I am Karen and it breaks my heart to see kids needlessly struggle with anxiety, fear, and self-loathing, who are missing out on life and their full potential, feeling worried and sad, secretly doubting themselves. Nothing makes me happier than to see my clients transform to happy, confident, self-assured kids who lead a life of adventure, feeling empowered, at peace, tuning into their own inner wisdom, and truly becoming their own best friend.
I integrate a unique combination of meditation, movement/brain balance, breathwork, energy balancing and the amazing Adventures in Wisdom™ stories to allow children to open up to their full potential and to feel grounded in their connections to others, while maintaining their own sense of self.
I hold a Masters in Teaching, and was an elementary and preschool teacher for many years. I have certificates in Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Brain Gym™ and Brain Dance™ and have training in alternative modalities such as EFT, NLP and Kinesiology. I currently offer one-to-one coaching, camps for girls, group workshops and teach yoga and mindfulness classes.
I’d love to hear more about your child and their challenges. Contact me at [email protected] and let’s chat!

COMPASSION, COURAGE, CONFIDENCE Empowering kids to embrace these characteristics is what drives Ora as she works with kids, teens and parents.
Ora originally earned her degree in Health Psychology and spent many years counseling children and adults who were battling cancer.
After starting her own family, she set aside her counseling career to raise her three children who are her MOST treasured pride and joy! But as the thought of an empty nest started to loom, Ora came upon the field of coaching and she was inspired by the differences between coaching and counseling, so much so that she took the plunge, earned her CPCC through the Co-Active Training Institute and started to coach cancer patients, their families, and also caregivers of Alzheimer's patients.
At the same time and all the while that Ora was raising her own children, she'd often be asked for parenting advice by other parents. After a little exploring through CTI, Ora LUCKILY discovered Adventures in Wisdom!! Now, as a certified WISDOM coach, Ora is thrilled to be working primarily with parents and teens and specializes in the challenges of Decision Making, Managing Mistakes, and Dealing with Disappointments and Failure.
She loves helping kids and families navigate the current adolescent climate, particularly with today's fierce academic and social pressures. How gratifying it is to watch kids embrace the Adventures in Wisdom messages and with compassion for themselves and for others, gain the courage and confidence they need to become their most productive, best selves!

Hi, my name is Bhavna. I have been a very passionate Montessori lead teacher for over 10 years. I am a mother of 2 girls myself, one in college and the other in High school.
Over the years I have taught at various Montessori and International schools and realized how important it is for us, as adults and as parents, to make sure that the children of this world are taken care of, taught well and most importantly ‘heard’. They start developing habits from the age of 2years and carry on solidifying their belief system throughout their lives.
As a teacher I have focused on increasing the cognitive skills of children keeping in mind their social and emotional needs. Having a holistic approach to learning and an out of the box thinking has helped me to understand the general psyche of children.
I am also a certified Reiki Master and a crystal healer.

Hello! My name is Sandra.
I have four grown children and four grandchildren. If you visit my home, you’ll find yourself stepping over and around a maze of dolls and dishes, cars and trucks, and, most recently – dinosaurs! Quite literally, a plethora of toys! I like to believe it’s a fun world when you visit my home! With that in mind, I chose to work with children and adults in my coaching profession.
When I discovered Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching for Kids, I immediately fell in love with the program. Why? Because it teaches lessons through stories that promote kids/teens’ social and emotional well-being. Stories are powerful!
At Autonomyforyou.com, the goal is to use these stories to teach individuals how to be autonomous – to act and think for themselves, build self-esteem, and develop self-confidence.

I look forward to meeting you!

I'm Monica Bhardwaj, Certified Life Coach and Certified WISDOM Coach for children ages 5-14. I believe the greatest gift we can give our children is to know that they belong, are good enough and worthy of love, no matter what. But how can we do this as parents unless we embody it ourselves? Afterall, our kids don't learn from what we tell them, they learn from what we show them. That's why my coaching program is designed to help parents grow alongside their children in learning how to use the power of their mind to change how they think about themselves and what's possible for their life.
I work one on one with kids to solve their issues, equip them with tools to handle anything that life throws at them and feel empowered to go after anything they want in life.

Hi I’m coach Monica Cristerna! I have been working with children and teenagers for a couple of years. I teach kids the power of choice as an access to having a life they love. I believe it is important for children to learn at an early age how to regulate their emotions and to know that at any moment they can switch to a life full of possibilities. I show them how to be unstoppable and take actions that correlate with the results they want and create a vision aligned with a future even if they are not there yet! They really get that anything is possible.
I have discovered that serving in this way is my purpose in life. It is the reason for my existence. To shift generations to come all over the world no matter what. Children are the true access to a new and renewed world.

Hello, my name is Melanie LeBar and I am no longer afraid. When I was growing up some of my self-sabotaging ways showed up as fear. Fear of being judged in school I never put my hand up to answer questions. What if my answer is wrong? HUMILIATION! What would they think of me? FEAR!
Naturally, I never had many friends (or boyfriends), during school. I felt very alone, and out of place. What is wrong with me? Why don’t people like me? What am I doing wrong? SELF DOUBT!
Growing up would engage in unhealthy activities with people I would not normally hang out with, just because they showed interest in me. LONELY!
Most people do not know this, but I invest time and often even money into helping myself rebuild the skills I did not develop as a child. Self-esteem and confidence are skills anyone can learn how to build for themselves. I have lived a childhood and most of my adult life without either. Now I have both. When I saw an advertisement for doing this with kids, I knew I had to enroll and make a difference in their life.
I am a Certified Wisdom Coach. Doing everything I can to help children have confidence too!

Hi, I’m Nicole Franco. I’ve spent most of my career finding ways to pursue my passion for enhancing interpersonal relationships and encouraging healthy family dynamics. My interest in working with kids to help them shape a positive mindset has led me to coaching, and to become a certified Wisdom Kids Coach. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Mediation and Applied Conflict Studies.
As a former participant in The Grrrls Connection groups at Willsey Connections during my teen years, I became acutely aware of the powers associated with understanding and managing one’s thoughts and feelings. My takeaways from The Grrrls Connection groups were a game-changer, to say the least; I developed the skills that have allowed me to cultivate and nourish different levels of interpersonal relationships in my late teen years and adult life. I'm thrilled to now be a Willsey Connections Coach, not only facilitating The Kidz Connection group for 4th and 5th grade girls, but also working individually with girls in their elementary and middle school years.

Today I am grateful to use a coaching certificate from Adventures in Wisdom along with my Psychology Degree, Education Degree and many years of experience to coach children around the world to live the life they love!
My coaching can help children to foster a growth mindset that enables them to achieve their goals and live the life they want with confidence and happiness. Through story telling and related activities children learn the thinking that serves them best to have resiliency through life's challenges, make good choices through peer pressure and go for their dreams to make them happen. I look forward to working with your child on the topics that are important to you and your family to address existing struggles, avoid future pitfalls or thrive for high achievement. You can call or email me to discuss a potential coaching package that fits your child's needs and to choose a style of delivery that fits your child and your family's needs.

Style of Delivery: Zoom, in person, workshop, small group, one-on-one

Hello, my name is Sonia Burts. Lots of my friends and family Call me Sam. My passion for coaching began in my childhood. I was the friend that always showed up in support of my friends. I would be the person they trust to listen when needed. My friends referred to me as their “home base”. They knew that with me, it was safe to be the person they wanted the world to see them as.
As an adult, I continue following that feeling of being supportive of someone in need. This passion leads my path today in enjoying working with children of all ages. I have been eagerly working with children for over 20 years. I started as a camp counselor for kids ages 5-10 all throughout high school. After graduating high school I became a lead preschool teacher for several years. I also managed a kid’s gym and became the curriculum developer for the classes at the gym.
I am now a certified dedicated WISDOM kids coach. I enjoy guiding children to trust their inner guidance to sustain and maintain balance in their decision-making. Using my mantra of (Feel+Mindset = Balance) to help with their connection to their overall self-development. I truly connect with the methodology Adventures in Wisdom use with story-based coaching. These segments allow the opportunity to show children how amazing and complex the brain can be. While also allowing a fun way to learn more about how the conscious and subconscious mind works.
I am grateful for all the wonderful experiences of working with children. My adventures continue to enrich my journey and someday own a kid’s gym. The gym will be based on strengthening children’s minds and bodies. Having the ability to dream and move in alignment with a dream is the mindset I place forth for myself and the children of today. The passion it takes to work with children will always be displayed for me as pure joy and excitement. From a young child to an adult this same passion for supporting others is what drives me to this every day. I truly appreciate now having the tools to support children in their life journey. The opportunity to guide children towards self-love and the love of others is the impact I want to have on society. I’m excited and honored to support your child and their journey.

Hi, my name is Jennifer Ann and I am a Youth Empowerment Coach. I'm originally from Venezuela and had an idyllic life until my family moved to the United States when I was 10. My father died shortly after. This was a defining moment in my life.
As a result, I've chosen this field and age group (6-12), as these are years where the physical, mental, and cognitive changes in their lives are challenging. Understanding the emotions of being the new kid in school, moving to a different city, leaving trusted friends behind, change of family dynamics due to the loss of a parent or divorce, etc.
No matter what is going on in or around their lives, we will work on the steps needed with the tools that will lead them to recognize their value and self-worth as the unique individual they are.

I have always had a love of children and have naturally found it easy to connect with them. Empowering kids is my passion.

They also develop courage which can help them persevere when struggling with school work and/or developing new friendships.
As founder of ‘The Magician Within’ I work one-on-one with children alongside their parents or carer. I also run workshops and larger group sessions because I understand the incredible value social interaction and group discussion can provide your child.

My name is Anne Rotschi. I am an engineer, a credentialed ACC coach and a certified WISDOM Coach.
My purpose is to support kids, who we know are the leaders of tomorrow, and who will continue to build peace in this world. Up to this point, I have been coaching executives in the Oil & Gas industry. I often come across adults who have lost their self-confidence after being fired. Those experiences made me realize that it is difficult, as a grown-up, to deal with self-limiting beliefs and road blocks. The younger you become aware of this, the easier it is to work on it and to move forward in your desired direction.
As a kid, I have personally experienced helplessness and lack of self-esteem. I wish I had followed the Adventures in Wisdom program as a kid.
I am French and I am happily married with a 4 years old daughter.
My clients are mainly French children who particularly need to grow their self-confidence.
Hi i’m Dani Korach and I am a proud certified Wisdom Coach™ and mother of 3 wonderful children. I am passionate about teaching kids empowering mindset skills that will set them on a journey to personal success and a fulfilling life.
After watching my own daughter’s struggles with self esteem etc I knew that I needed to help her and others find their inner strength and power to be able to face the world confidently, with purpose, whilst taking responsibility for how they do it.
Originally from London, I moved to Israel in 2019 and through Wisdom Power Kids I currently offer one to one and group coaching sessions based on Adventures in Wisdom™ to empower kids (aged 6 - 12) to believe in themselves and their abilities.
50% of mental illnesses are developed by the age of 14 - something society has been doing is clearly not working - I believe that “prevention is better than cure” and with Wisdom Power Kids I am excited to start empowering your kids to reach their full potential.

I have worked with clients across different sectors such as Telecommunications, top Hotel chains, Health, Education, Infrastructure and Governments as well as Fortune 200 companies and C-class executives. My passion is to work with people, listening, understanding and figuring out why we do the things we do. I have always had particular passion for children and education. I am drawn to the vulnerability and lack of inhibitions children possess as well as the power of their love and ability to forgive again and again.
I began researching educational systems and considered what works, what doesn’t and why. This lead me to management consulting and training programs in self-development. With a growing interest in holistic education and child development after my son was born, I began searching for a coaching program where I could incorporate my love for children, education and interest in mentoring in a fun, simplistic and creativite way. I found the perfect program in the Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching program.
In Nigeria, I was a very shy kid and I have always been compassionate towards the those who are excluded, different and insecure. My wish is for everyone to feel a belonging in this world, realize their power and their limitless potential. AIW programs teaches life skills so kids can reach their potential, this resonates with me at a very high level.
I want so much for my son and other children to excel, so I founded Inner Treasure Kids Life Coaching Ltd. supporting children 6-18, in living their full potential and preparing them for the 21st century world. My programs have a holistic approach as we nurture children mentally, physically, emotionally and socially using the Adventures in Wisdom curriculum.

Jeddah Saudi Arabia
I live in Jeddah Saudi Arabia and I am a mother of 3 beautiful boys. I started my journey with Kids Life Coaching when I felt that my 7-year-old boy was acting up in school.
Later on, I realized that he was influenced negatively by his peers and I didn't know how to deal with it, so I started searching or answers and ended up realizing the working with a coach was the best way to help him. I decided to become a Certified WISDOM Coach with Adventure in Wisdom because they use an awesome method in connecting with kids. After hearing positive feedback from my son's school, I wanted to help other parents and children. I am really enjoying coaching kids and helping families!

In 2008, I began my career as a self-development coach. where I assisted ladies in gaining a positive outlook on life and thriving.
After coaching women for a few years, I began to wonder what would happen if we gave youngsters these crucial life lessons.
So, I spent two years teaching elementary school in 2018 and realized that students nowadays need to learn how to harness the power of their thoughts and minds in order to achieve success, happiness, and self-assurance in their life.
Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass…it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” ~William Shakespeare
I am happy to teach kids how to dance in the rain and thrive in their lives.
