The Company

Colorful Childhood is a charitable organization based in Santa Barbara, CA, created for the purpose of making a positive difference in the world by offering mental health services, research, education, and advocacy for children and families.

The Founder

Yelena Lipovetskaya is a mother of three young children, an impact entrepreneur, a certified parent-infant coach, and an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. Yelena took on this exciting and challenging venture when she became aware how critical early attachments with the caregivers are to the child’s brain development, their mental wellness, and sense of self and the world around them.
