Our psychologists and therapists work closely with partners, couples, single parents and co-parents to help deepen their parenting practice. The purpose of Parent Coaching is to promote social-emotional, cognitive and adaptive functioning and well-being for families.
Our approach is collaborative and individualized. We focus on building skills and strengths. We apply developmental psychology, brain-behavior research and positive psychology principles to develop a creative and pragmatic treatment plan for each family.
Our parent coaches are dedicated to working with multicultural families, cultural humility, and appreciate neurodiversity.
Our parent coaching program is informed by empirically-validated established parenting programs (e.g., Triple P and Incredible Years). We encourage parents to be discerning about what’s out there in terms of parent education and child rearing practices. We tailor our program to the needs of our clients and we share techniques aligned with behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and developmental psychology.
In the parent coaching series, the duration of each parent coaching session is 50 minutes and we meet for 4 to 8 sessions. We focus on practicing new skills as well as fitting the skill to your family. Parents practice refreshed skills at home and monitor changes in your child’s behavior over time. As part of the treatment, we assign homework.
Parent coaching is a good fit for families who are looking for support to refine their parenting practices. We help parents implement therapeutic tools. The parents we work with may have child with mild to moderate behavioral challenges and s/he may be typical or may not have exceptional needs.
Parent Coaching is a clinical service and we provide a monthly invoice which includes CPT procedure codes, diagnosis codes, and pertinent information to submit to your health insurance company for reimbursement.

We provide telehealth and video/phone sessions with parents as needed.
