Coaching





The role of a "coach" is primarily informational and educational, assisting clients navigate the complexities of relationship dissolution, court proceedings, and making adjustments to a new definition of "family."

Individual Coaching

The focus of sessions may be on the "how-to" of single parenting, co-parenting, or grand parenting issues.  Building child management skills, creating more positive and effective communications skills often helps clients focus on solutions that reduce stress and conflict -- for all family members.  

Coaching for Parents/Couples

Clients develop patterns of communicating and relating to each other.  It is the goal of a parenting coach to assist clients in finding different, more effective ways to relate to one another in the context of newly-defined "family" circumstances. 


Family Coaching 

Family dynamics are often deeply entrenched, and have been in place for long periods of time.  Making changes in families is a complicated and sometimes difficult process. 

Assisting individuals, as well as the family as a whole, identify the issues and barriers that "get in the way" leads to building better relationships and communications.  The goal is to foster, nurture, and maintain a more solution focused and respectful family system.

Focused on developing communications and problem solving skills.  Useful during relationship dissolution; helpful when parents need to focus energy and attention on co-parenting children, helpful when keeping children out of the middle of adult conflicts.
