Parent. Educator. Life Coach. Friend.

I see you, and I’m glad you’ve found me.


You have been searching for me because you're proud of your children and the life you are creating, but you are looking for some support from like-minded moms. Maybe you are trying to find balance between independence and boundaries, or children and marriage, or work and parenting. Perhaps, you are trying to help your child deal with social stresses, social media pressures, or emotional strength. Or, maybe you are getting close to letting go, and you are struggling with teaching your teen the skills to confidently fly the nest, while at the same time finding your own strength to let them go. I get you....I've been there.


You are seeking self-awareness, and have been afraid to make yourself a priority, until now. Now you realize that you cannot lead the band, if the conductor is down. Now you realize that if you are strong, and compassionate toward yourself, you will have more compassion for those who rely on you.


You are afraid that your communication with your teen is suffering and you are desperate to keep your relationship with him/her strong, while navigating the terrifying teen years, and even more terrifying stage of letting go. What are the new boundaries, how do you forge a new relationship with this adult child? I feel you, Mama. And not only can it be done, it can be done beautifully!


You know they have to go. You want them to go, to succeed, and to LIVE. But you are afraid, terrified maybe, that your relationship will never be the same. That they are not ready. That they will not come back. I can tell you, you will be ok! Your relationship will be ok. You can help them get ready, and equally as importantly, you can get yourself ready too. I’m here for you. I’ve done it, I’ve felt it, and I have succeeded.

I use my experience and passion for empowerment to teach mindful parents to find balance and confidence in all aspects of parenting. I am driven to share the lessons I have learned in my own personal journey of confidently letting my children go, while allowing my own talents and passions to shine.


I know you’re ready too. 



Thank you for contributing to the extraordinary quality of my life - as well as the lifelong positive outcome for my kids :)

I never, ever thought I would be here!  Especially in a few short weeks really!  It’s really revolutionary!  The effort I put into myself is not only helping me (and I promise you I was desperate) but obviously helping my kids have a better life - and they can help their kids too.  Our journey to get here isn’t easy… I am grateful your challenges have flourished into an amazing skill that you are able to gift to others and change generations.  


Well! As far as I’m concerned you’ve been executing this venture for 35+ years! I have well-applied your transitional advice, over such 35 years..... By intention, or by chance, your presence helped to guide me where I am today. I should not be happy and successful, given my life circumstances, But I keep adjusting and growing and guiding my daughters. Thank you for all you’ve done for me, and by extension my daughters, my sister and my students. Love you


What people are saying...


I’m Merrily Hope Medina. I am an educator and parenting coach that empowers moms to stay true to themselves, and parent mindfully, while raising their children. For the past 25 years, I have been a teacher, business owner, and parent of 3. I value parenting intuitively, with passion and knowledge, and I can help you tap into both. When your children move off to start their next adventure, I want you to know that it’s ok to feel the emotion of letting go, but have a fire in your belly for YOUR next adventure. I am excited to walk with you on your journey of personal growth and empowered parenting.


Those who work with me feel exponentially more confident in their mindful parenting, and feel that both parent and child are prepared for their departure or other challenging situations that may arise during this journey.

Parenting can be challenging, and you don’t have to do it alone. I will teach you how to feel your feelings as a mom, how to cut yourself some damn slack, how to listen, how to teach without preaching, how to mold, shape, let fall, and eventutally let fly. 


And when they do fly, how to dust yourself off, strike a wonder woman pose and kick some ass as a woman with scars and knowledge who has grown into her own person. They may have “grown and flown,” but you raised them and now it’s your time to fly too!


Fly Mama. I believe in you!


It’s time.
