Connect with your coach and begin Parenting with Purpose

This program changed the way I approached parenting as a newly single parent. I could not have done it without the coaches.

- Client Testimonial

Parent Guidance encourages a healthy parent-child relationship and offers a comprehensive approach to parenting where you will find connection, education, tools and strategies to help you guide your children through life’s challenges and teach them how to successfully navigate their way through difficult times.

- Client Testimonial

I have already recommended Parent Guidance to other parents and will continue to do so. It’s a great resource and should be mandatory for all parents. I can’t think of any other resource that would have a more positive (and immediate) effect on our children and in our society.

Dr. Skinner is Co-Founder, Clinical Director, and contributor for a family of mental health brands trusted by over 50,000 clients and users. From a nationally sought-out therapy clinic, to free online communities that give people access to valuable educational content, to new technology that's helping therapists and coaches provide high quality services in less time, these companies are collectively transforming the mental health industry.

Mental health support doesn't have a timeline and neither does our program. While the initial Parenting with Purpose roadmap is expected to take around 4 weeks to complete, we offer ongoing support as long as you need it.

You will meet with your coach biweekly to discuss what you are learning and set goals.

Calls with your coach will take place virtually through Upheal and follow a customized agenda your coach will set weekly based on previous sessions. You will discuss your goals from the last week, your goals for the upcoming week, and (when applicable) the results of your assessments.

You are able to message your coach at any time. If you have any urgent concerns, your coach will get back to you as soon as they can. If you have questions or comments that may be best addressed in your next weekly session, your coach may save those to address face-to-face.
