With her refreshing approach she enabled me to see my situation and myself from a different angle. She encouraged me to leave my comfort zone and take a bold step forward, which boosted my confidence. I am most grateful to her for her help and advice during those troublesome times."

About Edit
 
 Allison Ochs

Allison Ochs

Life isn’t about waiting for the rain to pass, it’s about dancing in the rain.”

Growing up in a small town as one of eleven children I dreamed of travel and adventure. I put a map on my wall announcing  that I  would go abroad and by age 19 I was in Germany. When I took that bold step I was unaware that dotted between the bright sunny days it would sometimes rain hard. The same goes for motherhood. The  unexpected and difficult situations have come and gone and come again. I have learned how to dance in the rain and splash in the puddles. "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear.”  Let me help you find the equipment you need  to enjoy dancing in the rain.

Over the past 20 years I have lived, worked and begun my adventures of being a mother in five different countries.  I have worked as a teacher/social worker in public/private schools, in a teen transition home, a hospital and an orphanage. I have gained extensive knowledge about different school and cultural systems. Speaking fluent German and French are two additional skills I picked up on my journey. Helping children and parents has given me a deep understanding of what is, what should be and what can be.
