Therapeutic Parenting Services

Strengthening the relationship between a parent and child.

The Institute for Parenting clinic was developed to address the complicated range of needs of young and developing families. Our main focus is on the nurturing relationship, because research shows that infants and toddlers need secure relationships to build capacities for coping and learning.

Our clinicians specialize in Infant Mental Health and help parents and their 0-5 year olds find their way to stronger, healthier bonds. We know that parents are the experts on their children. With this in mind, we work with parents to help them support their child’s healthy social, emotional and psychological development.
