Parenting Support & Education

The heart and soul of this practice is working with families and helping to support parents. Parents may find themselves needing extra support when they are in unfamiliar territory. The combination of extra support, paired with education can be just what’s needed to move from surviving to thriving.

You get individualized time and attention!

Structure: All programs are facilitated by therapist and are individualized to meet each parent’s unique needs. Sessions are typically conducted individually. Each session last approximately 50 minutes and includes both individual guidance as well as education.

 

Therapeutic and Education Orientation: My experience has afforded me opportunities to work with all ages of children, in a multitude of situations as well as attend a wide variety of parent education & training. As a result, I utilize an eclectic approach that is strongly influenced by attachment based parenting, Love and Logic or choice theory; basic understanding of how your experiences influence your parenting and the importance of age appropriate expectations. I have been certified as a parent educator in Love and Logic, Parenting From the Inside Out, Circle of Security, attachment based parenting, and the STEP parenting program.
