We work to help parents improve their parenting skills, read cues from their children, build secure attachments, and create close, warm families. We talk about behavioral challenges and discuss strategies to support children in an effective, emotionally healthy way. We incorporate ideas from a wide variety of parenting models to help you meet the needs of your children, keep your own sanity and sense of humor, and create a healthy family that is good for all of its members.
Parent coaching is different from therapy in that it specifically targets behaviors and what parents can do about them. Therapy for parents goes deeper and can address personal and relationship issues in addition to the behavior of the children.
Our core values are:
Systems Oriented: We believe that the ways that a person functions, relates, feels, and defines themselves is deeply intertwined with the complex relationships in their past, present, and future, as well as with one’s circumstantial realities, resources, and health.
Attachment-Focused: We have a core belief that people are designed and wired to be in connected and emotionally safe relationships with other people.
Inclusive: We believe that ALL people deserve the highest quality of support without fear of judgment or exclusion. We will do our best to serve you or help you find another resource that will better serve your needs.
Neuro-Focused: We are dedicated to using approaches and information that are up to date with current neuroscience research and the science of interpersonal neurobiology.
Solution-Focused: We believe that all therapeutic and educational work should be goal-focused and produce experiential change.
Fun: We believe that the best learning and growth happen when we are feeling joy and connection.
