When you partner with a GIFT coach, you work with a certified professional who is also an adoptive parent. Our education is buttressed with hands-on experience. We have lived the challenge of parenting kids with trauma or tough starts and feelings of overwhelm. GIFT coaches offer struggling families assistance without judgment, empathy with hope and a voice that says, “Solutions are possible.”
GIFT coaches identify your family’s strengths and understand its struggles. We deal with the current reality and create strategies for both parent and child in areas ripe for improvement. Together we design a plan tailored for your family.
GIFT coaching focuses on effectiveness. Does a strategy work for your family? Can it be improved? Which resources are in place? Which are still needed? How can they be accessed? What else can be tried? We use a process of consistent re-evaluation without assigning fault. Coaching illuminates opportunities, focuses on action and fosters growth. These proven techniques assist you in managing resources so that you can return to the driver’s seat of your life.
Yes. We’ve been there too—and our families remain strong.
