About Us

about us

Who we are

We are an afterschool program that offers integrative healing techniques. Our founder Liza Boubari, has been an advocate for children and a pioneer in alternative healing therapies.

Who do we serve

Children from ages 8 through 17. HWI is for all children regardless of language, race/ethnicity, religion, etc.

Ask any young child who is missing or has lost their mother, and they will say that that day marked, irrevocably altered and changed their life.

Children need love, time, attention and play. We help them heal and become confident, strong individuals. Children of all ages can benefit from integrative healing and of bringing a gentle, accepting attitude to the present moment, promoting happiness and relieving stress. There is joy and self-exploration in self-expression. Our programs will target two specific age ranges: 8-12 and 13-17 years old.

What do we do

We provide experiences, guidance, mentorship, therapy, training and products that improve the health and well-being of individuals in mind, body, and spirit in a creative and fun way.

Here, we offer children activities that develop compassion, focus, curiosity and empathy. We collaborate with other experts to enrich, educate and enhance lives. These programs will bridge the gap to bring a sense of empowerment, confidence, better communication, and above all self-worth.


The HWI office is a quaint, inviting and cottage setting where one feels safe and welcomed. We are conveniently located across from the Glendale Central Library. Parking is available or we can meet and greet your child at curb side.

How We Help

When a child is left motherless as a result of separation or death, the child may experience difficulties associated with this absence. Through knowing, learning and preparing for these challenges, fathers, care givers and other concerned friends and relatives can more effectively help the child cope with his/her mother’s absence. We help them discover inner strength physically and emotionally, shift their attitude.

And remember, mindfulness can be fun and can help minimize anxiety and increase happiness.
