Parent & Family Life Therapy at Grow

Parent & Family Life Coaching provides practical tools that help parents and children improve family life through stronger relationships, better communication and healthier behavior patterns.  Family Life Coaching is educational and practical.  It is action oriented and focuses on solving the immediate challenges that families face.  A coach can support parents or an individual family member to learn research-based theories, techniques and skills that help move families forward toward their goals. Family Life Coaching helps families assess strengths and weaknesses, understand family behaviors, set actionable and attainable goals, and implement new family practices and communication patterns that help to meet those goals.

What are clients saying?

Thank you so much for meeting with me today.  You gave me so much insight into my family that I have been too stressed and overwhelmed to actually sit and think about.  Our time together was so helpful!   -B.F.

After we met, I went home and asked my daughter to help me solve the problem we were experiencing.  We had a very emotional and sweet discussion that opened my eyes to all that was troubling her.  My empathy increased and we started moving forward, working together.   -A.D.

Meeting all together was amazing and I think it really helped to open the dialogue between us and our son.  It has also given us peace about how to move forward as parents.   -L.C.

What to expect?

Initial Conversation:  We can schedule a free 20-minute conversation by phone to talk about whether family life coaching is right for you.

Coaching Sessions:  Coaching sessions are typically 55-60 minutes.  Many families find that 4-6 coaching sessions are exactly what they need to make positive change in their family life.  Some families prefer fewer sessions and others find that ongoing support over time works well.  

Coaches: Grow’s Parent & Family Life Coaches are trained professionals. Coaches meet with one or both parents, grandparents, the family group, or individual children.  A coach can also plan an in-home visit if that would be beneficial.
