"I'm out of tools and have no idea what to do now."
"My teen won't talk to me and refuses to come to counseling."
"We have some complicated family dynamics and we need someone who can understand and help us sort them out."
These are some of the common concerns that bring parents in to see us for coaching. In addition to having over 25 years of combined experience as family therapists, we're also parents ourselves. We understand how difficult parenting is and how confusing it can be to wade through all of the information and advice that comes from every direction. We'll give you practical guidance and direction without judgement. Most parents come away from their work with us feeling more confident, equipped and happier overall.
Parent coaching is a great option of you have a child that isn't interested or willing to participate in counseling. There's a lot you can do to help your child without their involvement.
There are a lot of great parenting books out there and some not so great ones. It's hard to wade through them all. Here are a few that we've read and strongly recommend as therapists and parents.
