O’Keeffe FMC is a place for you to start your journey to resolve whatever conflict you are facing. Whether by mediation or coaching, call today to discuss what you are struggling with. For many people, health experts and courts are not the solution but working together as a family and finding a different path is. We can help you find that path.
Coaches help people with the one area that doctors and health providers struggle with daily…encouragement, planning and enrichment. Despite our training, reading and intentions, our education doesn’t offer our patients the time and advice they desire in a typical medical and wellness visitation. Coaching, however, does. As a pediatrician, what I desired the most was to help parents clear the fog I knew they were experiencing…the fog I, too, was experiencing as my husband and I were raising our children. Whether offline or as the digital world emerged, parents were yearning to talk.
If the truth be told, my parenting coaching life began during my residency when I realized that a stethoscope was not the medicine parents wanted…but listening and talking was. My parenting coaching career began 30 years ago…long before we had a name for it. As parents, there is no map. We do the best we can. But, hurdles occur and sometimes we need to regroup and come up with a new path or just a parenting time out to reassess what’s going on in our family. Similar to a sports coach, a parenting coach helps you with your parenting plan. It’s a plan made with you – just for you. I don’t provide you with a cookie-cutter plan. We talk about you and your journey. Together, we’ll clear the fog.
