Parent Coaching


Parent coaching is a process that walks the parent through understanding their child from the inside out. You will learn to identify the underlying cause of the unwanted behavior and develop tools that will bring out the best in your child.

These method are based on the latest neuroscience that demonstrate how interactions can have valuable brain shaping effects that wire the brain in a positive direction. This in turn leads to calmer emotions and better behavior.  Parent Coaching engages and empowers the parent to use newly learned skills to restore a healthy family balance.

How do I get started?

To schedule your first parent coaching session, call Amery Hospital & Clinic at (715) 268-8000 and request an “initial parent coaching session with Teri Kohlrusch.”  Schedule the appointment under the name of the child about whom you have concerns.

Children do not attend these visits; only parents are involved in the appointment. This confidential sharing of information allows relationship healing to stay where it belongs: in the hands of the parents. The parent/child bond remains primary.

Please allow up to 90 minutes for the first appointment. After the first session is completed, we will schedule additional one hour appointments every two weeks to give you an opportunity to practice your new skills. A minimum of 4 sessions are recommended; however, parents of children who have significant developmental or behavioral challenges may need additional sessions.

Billing & Insurance

Parent coaching can be billed to your child’s health insurance (co-pays may apply). Reimbursement is based on your child’s individual insurance plan.
