Parent Coaching

Parents launch into the journey of adoption and foster care feeling hopeful and excited. The preparation received varies greatly. Once a child is in the home, it can be hard to remember any of the training received. Our parent coaches are here to help parents know how to apply the principles of therapeutic parenting to each specific situation.
