Parent coaching is for parents who want to help find new and creative ways to positively impact their child’s life and make absolutely certain they create a healthy and fulfilling atmosphere for their family.
I believe that every parent has the innate ability to raise their children. Unfortunately doubt plagues us and we lose confidence in our own abilities. My intention is to compliment the basic fundamentals that you have already implemented. I empower and support parents through this realization and provide the support and tools you need to be more effective parents.
As a mother and pediatric nurse practitioner, I intimately know the urgency and helplessness parents can feel when taking care of their children. Parent coaching will help you deal with the typical daily challenges that parenting brings. It is a process in which you are taught skills to feel empowered to handle these situations.
Your relationship with a parenting coach is a nonjudgmental, collaborative and productive one. As a parent coach, I am not doing the parenting for you but helping integrate some practical and effective techniques that fit your life and parenting style. I will work with you one-on-one to teach you strategies as well as demonstrate how to apply these techniques. I also focus on encouraging parents to work together in order to provide a more cohesive family foundation. This in turn strengthens the family environment.
Parent coaching is not therapy and is not intended to replace or conflict with services provided by psychologists, therapists or pediatricians.
