Become a Certified Parent Coach

Would you like a career that allows you to work with parents, foster parents, kinship parents and other caregivers, teaching them hands-on, here-and-now tools for bringing about rapid and dramatic improvement in their child’s behavior?

Does the thought of being able to help parents and caregivers strengthen bonds while teaching children new and effective ways of interacting with their world appeal to you? How about lifting parents to their higher selves, so they can lift their children to theirs?

You’ve come to the right place.

Here's what one of our current students says about the class:

"Thank you so much! I love that what you teach aligns so much with what we have learned over the years. Parenting perspectives are so varied and rarely line up with how we approach things. Today's class was exactly what I was hoping it would be! Can't wait to read your book."   - Michelle Gerdon, foster/adoptive parent, coach trainee
