Parent Coaching

Raising children can be challenging and sometimes feels isolating. We’re often overwhelmed and unsure of where to look for support. If you are looking to feel more confident in your parenting skills, then parent coaching may be for you.

Parent coaching can provide you with on-going or short-term support to help you raise your kids and navigate through parenting challenges. It is solution-oriented and designed to help you develop effective strategies.

As a licensed psychologist (MD) and former principal, I offer local (DC metro area) and virtual parent coaching to help you build your parenting skills and become a more innovative, effective parent.

I can work with you on any of the following areas:

  • Parent Organization
  • Behavior Strategies
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Digital Responsibility
  • Parenting Goals
  • Difficult Conversations
  • Early Childhood Challenges
  • Stress Management
  • Emerging Adolesce
What is parent coaching?

Parent coaching can help you work through difficult situations or just find strategies for everyday parenting needs. Whether it is having a difficult parenting conversation with your child or it is strategies for making you a more successful parent, I can help meet your needs.

  • Act as a sounding board as you develop your own toolkit

Who can participate in sessions?

You can participate or you can get other members of your family involved. An additional fee may be charged for more than two participants.

What topics can be discussed during parent coaching?

Parent coaching can help provide you with support with:

  • Being an organized parent
  • Developing healthy responses to challenging behaviors
  • Stress management for kids and parents
  • Dealing with sibling rivalry
  • Supporting executive functioning in your children
  • Learning concerns
  • Educational placement
  • Special education process and services
  • Behavioral problems at home
  • Working collaboratively with school, camp, and other organizations
  • Building your confidence in your parenting skills

Parent coaching is not, however, a replacement for therapy for adults.
