Parent Coaching

Parent Coaching

Want to improve your relationship with your child?

Feel more confident & less overwhelmed? 

Research shows child and adolescent therapy alongside parent coaching sessions results in higher positive therapeutic outcomes. This is why we recommend all parents take part in at least 2 parent coaching sessions. 

Every child has different needs, understanding, and supporting, a child with mental health struggles is not something you have to do on your own. As therapists we are her to help you gain insight learn parenting strategies and manage the ups, downs and daily challenges of life as a parent.

Space providers

We have certified SPACE providers

SPACE stands for Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions and is a parent-based treatment program for children and adolescents with anxiety, OCD, and related problems. SPACE was developed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at the Yale Child Study Center and has been tested and found to be efficacious in randomized controlled clinical trials.

Who is SPACE for? Who is the patient? SPACE aims to treat children and adolescents with anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Although children do not have to attend SPACE sessions - they are the patients! When SPACE treatment is successful children feel less anxious and function better following treatment.

Who participates & what happens in SPACE treatment? Parents (and other caregivers) participate in SPACE treatment sessions. In most cases the child or adolescent does not need to attend the treatment sessions. Parents who participate in SPACE will learn skills and tools to help their child overcome anxiety, OCD or related problems. The treatment focuses on changes that parents can make to their own behavior, they do not need to make their child change. The two main changes that parents learn to make in SPACE treatment are to respond more supportively to their anxious child and to reduce the accommodations they have been making to the child symptoms.
