What is Parent Coaching?

Parenting is a journey filled with joys, challenges, and moments of learning. It’s a path where sometimes you might feel lost or unsure. That’s where parent coaching comes in, offering a guiding light to help you navigate this incredible, yet complex journey.

Parent coaching is a valuable resource for parents looking to improve their parenting skills and strengthen their relationships with their children. As parents, we all want the best for our children, but raising kids can be challenging, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to parenting. Whether you’re looking to address a specific parenting challenge or simply want to improve your overall parenting approach, I am here to help.

Parent coaching is a professional service that helps parents develop the skills and strategies they need to navigate the ups and downs of parenting. Through personalized coaching sessions, parents can gain valuable insights, guidance, and support from a trained and experienced psychologist. Dr. Gomes, a CBT therapist in Port Jefferson, NY, is passionate about helping parents become the best version of themselves and create stronger, more fulfilling relationships with their children.
