Research confirms what parents already know: parents matter. Both powerful and enduring, the relationship between parent and child is a primary source of healing and positive change for the whole family. Children’s outcomes are indelibly linked to their parents’ well-being. By investing in parents and supporting and emotionally equipping them to parent to the best of their ability, we help children and families flourish. Our therapists partner with parents using an array of research-based evaluation and therapy services that are proven to help build the strong, emotionally sensitive relationships that parents desire with their children.
