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. Since 2002, they have reached over 14,000 parents.

With passion, humor, and their signature-style demonstrations, we offer parents practical tools for promoting healthy development and nurturing the unique potential of their children. Every parent who attends our presentations leaves with numerous parenting choices and action steps that not only gets results but feels great to parents’ hearts.

As therapists, we have worked with adults, children, couples, and families. As parent coaches, we create an individualized family parenting plan to overcome specific challenges. We have developed workshops on a wide variety of topics that have presented to thousands of parents.

Our highly acclaimed multi-week on-line 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, we have been called “a dynamic duo; highly exciting and solid presenters who are practical, empathetic and experienced at the work they do.” We have authored numerous published articles (check out our blog), 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 have raised wonderful young adult children.

Karen and Lauren are truly the best in their field. I really feel this course will help me be a better parent… I would come to their class every week if they offered it!
