BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

    Parent & Sleep Coaching

    At PM Pediatric Care we understand that parenting is a journey that does not come with a manual.

    Our Parenting Coaches and Certified Sleep Consultants are available to help support you and your family. The services are available for families with children and young adults ages 0-26.

    Our certified parent coaches aim to help parents navigate challenges with their children and gain clarity by building even stronger connections at every stage of growth and development.

    In sessions, our team will address your parenting concerns while addressing the individual needs of your child(ren). Our individual approach strives to understand your family’s needs, preferences, and culture to offer realistic and personalized support for your parenting concerns. We can guide parents through tantrums, behavior concerns, family changes, parenting kids with autism, parenting kids with ADHD and many more! Our parent coaches can guide parents of infants through young adults.

    Our certified sleep coaches provide consultations which include a comprehensive assessment of your child's sleep needs and challenges, an individualized plan to get you closer to a good night's sleep, and support as you navigate the process. Sleep coaching is effective for all ages: from infants through young adults.
