How do I know if I would benefit from parent consultations?
Parent consultations support parents to:
Re-establish positive family relationships
Create consistency and healthy boundaries
Improve lines of communication both with the children and between parents
Increase self-awareness and develop healthy coping strategies
Build confidence and self-efficacy in parents and children
Develop work-life balance
Parent consultations are for parents who want:
To learn how to identify triggers along with what is maintaining it to best support their child.
Build effective techniques & skills to implement confidently when challenges arise.
Learn how to be consistent with their follow-through so expectations are clear and effective.
Reduce unnecessary power struggles and develop family balance and organization.
Do you schedule sessions with clients in the evening or on the weekends?
Services are offered Monday - Friday from 9 am - 5 pm.
What is your cancellation policy?
Being a parent myself I understand that things may come up from time to time that causes a family to cancel a session. Missed or cancelled sessions will be replaced at the earliest time pending on the consultant’s schedule in the same week or an extra session would be tacted on at the end.
Where do you see clients?
Families have the choice of having their consultations take place virtually over Zoom or in-person at Restorative Integrative Health on Tuesday's in Greely, ON.
Family's that select virtual consultations have the ability to record their consultations.
There are many benefits to this which include:
Ability to go back and review
Convenient if both parents are not able to attend the session
For packages that include your child’s involvement, sessions will take place in your home or out in the environment where challenges typically take place.
What are your fees?
I offer a variety of packages to fit the family’s needs. Fees vary based on the type of package and program duration. Fees are always discussed prior to meeting with a family so that they select the package that best suits their needs and is clear on the financial investment they are making. Feel free to get in touch if you have questions about specific services or packages.
What type of payment do you take?
Families are provided with both an invoice along with a receipt upon payment.
Packages can be paid for by credit card or bank transfer. Payments can be made in full or monthly depending on the length of services.
Are you covered by insurance plans?

What is the difference between parent coaching and counseling?
Counselling is a past-focused discipline, in which the counsellor identifies the reasons for the person’s feelings and behaviours and offers ways to handle a particular issue. Parent Consulting focuses on the here, now and future. Success in Step’s method looks at identifying the “why” behind the behaviour along with what is “maintaining” it. From there we identify and support you with the strategies that will work for your unique situation. It’s not uncommon that some clients come to us after experiencing counselling as the two approaches have their own benefits.
