Solutions Parenting Support’s dynamic team of parent coaches have come together to create another exceptional program that provides coaching and mentoring to adolescents and young adults.

Solutions is excited to announce that its seasoned and skilled parent coaches, Hanna Young and Toni Mazzaglia, will be joined by two industry therapists in the industry, Jeff Scott and Justin Larkin, who will provide mentoring and coaching services.

“We have spent a great deal of time developing our mentoring program to ensure that the young person has agency in the mentoring and coaching support they receive, and that their family will also get the coaching needed to be successful. We are eager and excited to see our experience and skillset as a team be utilized in this way,” said Solutions co-owner Jen Murphy, who, together with her team, is embarking on the development of her second nationally recognized mentoring program.

Quotes from Hilary Moses are Features in Article about BPD

Solutions coaches understand that coaching and therapy are different. Our goal as coaches is to support you in the action steps that will support you in identifying and moving towards goals.

That said, one thing that as helped to set us apart in our over a decade of experience coaching remotely, is that each member of our coaching team is trained as a therapist. We pride ourselves on not only our experience in clinical and experiential modalities, but also in staying abreast of the latest studies and research.

If you or our loved ones are managing a mental illness you know the importance of empathy and understanding, you know that certain approaches work, and you know it is hard to stay consistent. By allowing our understanding of diagnostic approaches to inform our practical advise we are able to tailor our coaching to the unique make up of your family.

Hilary Moses was recently featured in an article that demonstrates the kind of expertise our team holds.

Don’t Take Things Personally:

“There is so much push and pull in relationships when it comes to BPD and it is great to master the art of not taking things personally. Set boundaries, yes, model healthy relationship interactions, yes, but don’t take it personally when the attacks come. The push and pull you might experience tends to be their self-preservation, their way of feeling in control of something, their way of hurting others before they (presumably) get hurt so as to feel on the winning end of the hurt.” – Hilary Moses, LCSW

Earth Day 2015: Planting the Seeds of Recovery

Horticultural therapy — or the practice of gardening to promote well-being — has been used in a variety of treatment settings, including mental health and addiction rehabilitation programs. Horticultural therapy offers a wide range of benefits for people in recovery. Here are a few, shared with by leading therapists, including Hilary Moses:

“There are rich metaphors [between horticultural therapy and recovery]. For example, when you weed a garden, you need to get to the root of the weed to really make a serious dent … If you just pluck the problem from the surface it will flourish below and get more and more difficult to manage. Horticultural therapy also puts [patients] in a caregiving position when they feel like they can’t care for anything, let alone themselves. They learn the nuances of caretaking … they are able to learn through discovering and taking risks (which builds resilience in the brain), with minimal consequences.” – Hilary Moses, LCSW, transition specialist, parent coach and co-owner of Solutions Transitional Support, LLC
