What Does a Parent Coach Do?

A parent coach provides clear, immediate strategies you can use to address whatever you are grappling with. We take the time to get to know your family history, dynamics, and values, then create a roadmap and a strategy just for you.

Common issues we address:
  • Establishing healthy routines
  • Sleeping, eating, and toileting challenges
  • Tantrums and aggressive behaviors
  • Developmental milestones and concerns
  • ADHD and impulse control
  • Learning struggles
  • Highly sensitive or spirited children
  • Anxiety
  • Building friendships and social skills
  • Choosing a new preschool or elementary school
  • Parental separation and divorce
  • Blended families

A parent coach can also provide a unique partnership throughout your parenthood journey, helping you identify long-term goals and address desired areas of change.
