At Children’s Healing Studio, Ltd. we provide one-on-one family coaching that aims to help parents better understand child development and form healthy relationships with their children.
Family coaching is useful for any parent who is seeking support to navigate their child’s mental health and developmental needs. Sessions are offered in-Studio, online, or in the family home. During a session, Dr. Elena Merenda provides education on child development and she offers strategies and support that fosters communication and coping skills.
Dr. Merenda works with families as a team to develop mutually agreed upon goals. Typically, the larger goal is to re-establish positive family relationships, which is achieved through the application of smaller goals like improving communication, providing education on child development, improving parenting strategies, fostering parenting confidence, and developing solution-focused thinking.
Family coaching can help with a multitude of issues including (but not limited to):
- Transitions (marriage, death, adoption, etc.) or familial changes
- Death and loss
- General behavioral issues
- Learning disabilities
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Suicidal ideation, attempt, or mental health concerns
