Parent Coaching

No one said parenting is easy, and it’s hard to find time to seek help. We offer 1 hour or 30 minute parent coaching sessions on a variety of issues in an accepting, nonjudgmental environment. The best part is that it can be done over the phone. Call us on your lunch break at work or in the comfort of your own home. We take an active, energetic approach to help you build confidence in your parenting style.

We offer parent coaching on topics such as:

TALKING TO MY CHILD ABOUT ADOPTION

Parent coaching is usually short-term, requiring 3-4 meetings at most and can be done in person, over the phone, or via video conferencing in all 50 states. 2 30 minutes sessions is $150. Parent coaching is not considered a mental health service and therefore is not insurance reimbursable. Participants will focus on learning new skills, language, or setting clear goals. Together we’ll create an individualized plan to help you and your family get back on track.
