How does parent coaching work?
Coaching will take place over the phone or in person. Your coach will listen deeply to the challenges you are facing and the impact they have on your family. Together we will identify goals and develop strategies to work towards them. We will continually evaluate our progress and adjust our goals and strategies as needed
Are your services confidential?
Yes. We are both Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers and adhere to all of the ethics and standards set forth in the social work code of ethics and State of Washington laws.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance at this time. Insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis to provide coverage and parent education and support do not necessitate this sort of diagnosis.
What is your cancellation policy?
We require 24 hours notice if you will be unable to make your session. If sessions are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged for the full cost of the session.
What is the difference between therapy & coaching?
Although we are trained as a clinical therapists, our role as a parent coach is to assist you in addressing current challenges and develop a plan to move forward. While we may discover information about your own childhood that helps you understand your parenting perspective, this is not the focus of our work. If it becomes apparent that therapy or other modalities would be helpful, we can assist you in finding someone to address those needs.
Do you work with groups?
Yes! Many parents benefit from group parenting consultations. If you have a few friends and want a regular space to learn and grow as a parent, we can make that happen. Please contact Sarina for further information.
My partner and I see a situation differently. Can you help us?
Yes! One of the challenges of parenting together is we each bring our own perspective on the issue, yet we must embrace one approach to the problem. Parenting cooperatively is an important skill that leads to healthier relationships and happier children.
I am pregnant and want help getting ready for baby. Can you help?
Yes! We can assist you and your partner in preparing for baby both physically and emotionally. If you already have children and are adding to the family, We can offer support and strategies for easing the transition.
