Empowered Parenting

Clinical Director, Alley Dezenhouse Kelner,  has created a model for parent coaching that emphasizes the importance of  parenting-practices that are rooted in science, anchored in shared-values, and guided by actionable steps to take you from reactive to responsive. Alley, and her team, take a Mindful Parenting approach, which acknowledges the importance of self-regulation for both parent/caregiver and child. We recognize that connection, trust and mutual respect pave the way for the establishment (and maintenance) of gentle, but firm, boundaries that support everyone's needs.

 

Session Structure
Sessions are scheduled on the clinical hour, (45 minutes of session + 15 minutes of session notes by clinician),  and are conducted virtually.
S
essions occur as much as 1-4 times per month, or as little as twice per year, based on need.
