About the Founders

Co-founders of Parenting Perspectives, Karen Jacobson, MA, LMFT, LCPC and Lauren Bondy, LCSW, are on the cutting edge of innovation helping parents become more self-aware so that their families can thrive.

With passion, humor, and their signature-style demonstrations, they offer parents practical tools for promoting healthy development and nurturing the unique potential of their children. Every parent who attends their presentations leaves with numerous choices and action steps for parenting that will get results and feel great.

As therapists, they have worked with adults, children, couples, and families. As parent coaches, they create an individualized family parenting plan to overcome specific challenges. Parenting Perspectives has developed over 25 interactive workshops on a wide variety of topics which they have presented to thousands of parents.

Their highly acclaimed multi-week course, Conscious Parenting: A Guide to Parenting from Your Heart, is energizing and empowers parents to achieve their full potential of love, joy and connection.

As keynote speakers, they have been called “a dynamic duo; highly exciting and solid presenters who are practical, empathetic and experienced at the work they do.” They have authored numerous published articles, appeared on ABC-7’s Connect with Kids, as well as radio appearances including Hay House Radio. Karen and Lauren both have private practices and are raising children at home.
