Our parent and family coaches are trained seasoned therapists, not only with professional experience, but also with real life experience. All of our coaches have successfully raised confident kids, while balancing healthy interactions and relationship dynamics within the family. Parent coaching is for parents who are already functional, but want more out of what they are experiencing. Partnering with a coach gives you the support and guidance to get unstuck and live your best life, achieve goals and celebrate victories.
If there is a deeper issue that may cause difficulty or is too difficult for you to handle alone, our parent coaches will recommend counseling. Sometimes, the client’s needs would be better met with clinical treatment goals.
