The Academy for Coaching Parents coach training certification program which I completed in fall 2011 had a HUGE impact on my parent coaching business.   By selecting to focus on the special need’s niche, I was able get a clear focus on the business and marketing side. With Dr. Goode’s help, I gained a real detailed perspective of the dynamic of families of kids with special needs. ACPI’s program, like the discipline of mindfulness, allows one to develop an inner awareness of the possibilities and potentials that we all have.

I was looking into the Family Coaching certifications and programs, but I was not sure what I wanted to do with it. As I went through the family-coach program with masterful instructor Sharon Eagon, I was excited to move through each module, encouraged by how much I learned week after week, and inspired beyond expectation to start coaching families on my own. I’m thrilled to say that I’m now launching my own coaching practice and look forward to the countless ways I can help families in my area and around the country.
