Parent Support & Coaching
What is Parent Support & Coaching?
Parent Support & Coaching provides parents and caregivers individualized strategies that support your relationship with your child. This is an opportunity for parents to meet with a provider, trained in children’s mental health, that has read all the parenting books that can give you individualized approaches to ordinary (and extraordinary!) parenting challenges.
Our parenting approach and style prioritizes the parent-child relationship with the aim of helping you raise well-adjusted, emotionally competent children rather than specifically targeting behavioral change. Our hope is that by providing parents with individualized parenting strategies based on your situation, while prioritizing a connected relationship, you will increase your confidence as a parent and your child will build confidence and emotional competence.
Please note that while our Parent Support & Coaching providers are licensed therapists, Parent Support & Coaching is a consultation and coaching service, not a healthcare service nor psychotherapy. Therefore it is not billable to insurance or eligible for Health Savings Accounts. Psychotherapy is a separate healthcare service that includes diagnosing and treating emotional and psychological problems.
