Parenting Behaviour Coaching

I provide parenting coaching for parents looking for support navigating their child’s internalized and externalized behaviours. No diagnosis is required, but I do have specialized training and experience supporting children with anxiety, explosive behaviours, and emotional regulation challenges.

This is for parents that want:

  • Information about where and how to pursue a diagnosis if desired and how to find community supports and resources.
  • Support navigating the school system as well as coaching on how to effectively advocate for your child and how to teach your child to advocate for themselves.
  • Strategies for creating a calmer home environment.
  • Strategies and tools to support children struggling with anxiety, explosive behaviours, executive functioning defecits, emotional regulation challenges, obsessive thinking, and more.
  • Strategies and tools to support your child as they pursue and maintain social relationships.

We will create a plan together, that is focused on individual goals and needs. Parent and Child coaching may be an option, but I prefer to have at least a consultation session with just the parent initially to determine the most supportive approach.
