Healing the Entire Family
Working with Parents, LLC believes the best support you can get is from someone who understands your challenges as a couple and as parents. We are here to help heal the entire family. Having universal support from one coach is not only convenient but also ideal for keeping consistency within your family’s situation.
Research demonstrates that when couples become parents, there is a significant decrease in their relationship satisfaction. Further research has shown that relationship discord and conflict have a profound negative effect on the couples’ family.
Our services are based on the Gottman Institute. Dr. John Gottman has done 40 years of research on relationships, families, and parenting styles, and found that emotion coaching is fundamental in creating respectful, emotionally healthy, successful families. Emotion coaching is helping families understand their emotions by recognizing what they are feeling and why so they can eventually regulate their own behavior. As families grow and mature, the skill of managing their own emotions helps them navigate social relationships, maximize intellectual success, and develop confidence.
