Families may at times face stressors or crisis situations that challenge their ability to cope and effectively solve problems without the help of a professional. Our clients often include families who are in crisis, new parents, and adoptive parents who need help coping with a difficult situation or transition.
Unfortunately, families don’t come with manuals for how to safely and effectively navigate the rough waters when stressors arise. Family Coaching offers the assistance of an experienced professional to help you and your family to create solutions that are tailored to your unique situation and family dynamics including the difficulties faced at children’s various developmental stages. We help to assist and educate parents and children regarding the impact of internal struggles and outside influences. We also help to promote healthy and effective communication between family members.
Family Coaching may be a good choice for you if your family needs help with issues such as:
- New parent challenges
- Blended families
- Teen pregnancy
- School dropout risk
- Family conflicts
- Poor family communication
- Extended family concerns
- Marriage challenges
- Separation anxiety
In some cases, the Family Coach may work with parents to provide support and assistance while a member of the family also receives therapy from another professional to address a condition such as anxiety or depression. Family Coaching is not covered by insurance, however it is generally a short term service and a worthwhile investment in the healthy functioning of your family.
