Testimonials for Coaching

My husband and I still discuss how impressive her support was…. especially as we never actually met her face to face!

I can not begin to express how thankful my husband and I are to have had Jen as a resource over the last 6 months!  While our daughter was in a wilderness program, we were in need of support.  Jen was a calm, smart, impartial person who supported us while our child was away at the same time as preparing us for her return home.  Jen was kind and patient while challenging us to provide the best environment and structure for our daughter to find future success.  When our daughter returned, we continued our weekly calls with Jen for a few months and I am so happy we did!  Again, she was a calm support who would often challenge us to make the better and sometimes harder parenting choices, always in a supportive and engaging manner.  My husband and I still discuss how impressive her support was…. especially as we never actually met her face to face!  It is a true testament to her ability that she can engage and build such strong relationships over the phone.

You are helping in so many ways with all of the situations we are unsure how to manage.

We wish we had a parent coach years ago. Well, actually, we tried to work with one but it was a bust, really not helpful and we dropped out.  You are helping in so many ways with all of the situations we are unsure how to manage.

Hilary really knows adolescents and emerging adults, and she has loads of experience helping parents handle and help stuck / depressed / angry / anxious / weed-clouded kids. I know Hilary from her previous work at Pacific Quest where she was one of their most sought after therapists ever - ask any educational consultant, they will agree. -Dr. Richard Falzone, MD, LLC Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Jen has an incredible calm about her that I have never seen in anyone.

Jen was phenomenal. She has an incredible calm about her that I have never seen in anyone. She listened well and reacted appropriately to two very different people. She had great patience with me while I figured out what she was coaching me about and kept repeating herself for four months until I finally got it. We would not have had the same family result without Jen’s guidance and support.

Client/Parent

This changed my life.

This changed my life, Jen Murphy! You are an amazing teacher and therapist. You taught me how to be the man I am today. You helped me and my Mom through very rough times and things really fell into place for the best. I couldn’t be happier that I had this chance to turn it all around.

She brings a level of insight that can only come from many years of experience...

Jen is a great communicator. She is clear, direct, and yet firm at the same time. She is compassionate and wise. She brings a level of insight that can only come from many years of experience in the field. There are few who can do what she does.

Educational Consultant, NY

Refreshingly thoughtful, insightful and nurturing...

Jen served with distinction as our parent coach during our child's transition from after-care treatment to home. We found her to be refreshingly thoughtful, insightful and nurturing, and her recommendations were consistently well-informed and spot on. She gave us exactly what we needed--a safe harbor in the storm.

Jen Murphy is the best therapist I have ever worked with.

Jen Murphy is the best therapist I have ever worked with. She listens well and gives excellent guidance on everything she addresses with parents. Jen provides a uniquely calm, safe environment while speaking with parents. I was initially skeptical that Jen would be effective working with us over the telephone, but she quickly won my husband and myself over with her down to earth, soothing approach that she brings when working through very intense, emotional issues. Our family would not have healed and reconnected as well as we have without the advice and support of Solutions Parenting Services.

Client/Parent

Jen is down to earth, insightful and brings a great sense of humor to the process...

Jen has truly been able to master the distinction between therapy and parent coaching by providing parents the benefit of experiencing a more practical, educational and directive approach. Jen is down to earth, insightful and brings a great sense of humor to the process of helping parents.

Educational Consultant, Salt Lake City, UT

We continue to be amazed at the difference...

Our older daughter graduates from high school tomorrow and the two of us are going on a trip to celebrate. Our younger daughter graduates from middle school on Thursday. We are having a great time and continue to be amazed at the difference the family is experiencing from just a year ago. Thanks for all your help.

California Dad and Client

They coach each family based on their unique needs...

I refer clients to Solutions because I trust that their transitional team will “get it” quickly and coach each family based on their unique needs. Some parents need to get more firm with their boundaries and create clear rules and structure. Others need to soften and work more on relationships. Solutions Parenting Support does not have a “one size fits all” approach. They quickly discern what is appropriate and coach accordingly.

Educational Consultant, Boulder, CO

Goes to the heart of the matter with respect, precision and results...

I have had the pleasure of working with Hilary Moses for over a decade. She is by far one of the most talented and effective clinicians working with adolescents and families. Her approach is refreshing and highly impactful. Where most professionals tiptoe around issues, Hilary goes to the heart of the matter with respect, precision and results. If you're looking to make changes, Hilary will make it happen!

Gives us truly actionable guidance and advice...

We can't begin to describe just how important Hilary has been to us in this process with our daughter. She truly has a gift and a special talent and has helped us tremendously in becoming more aware of our own tendencies and in coaching us on how to truly help our daughter continue her growth. Each week she gives us truly actionable guidance and advice and, more importantly, acts as a wonderful sounding board for our worries and concerns. We owe her so much.

Helped us to set a new, sustainable path...

Hilary is great at identifying our family’s struggles, quickly guiding self-assessment, and helping us to set a new, sustainable path. I highly recommended Hilary to parents with kids in Wilderness Therapy and those who want to avoid that drastic step.

Testimonials for Courses

we are finally able to present a more unified front when dealing with challenges with our daughter

After taking the course, we feel more supportive of each other’s parenting decisions and we are finally able to  present a more unified front when dealing with challenges with our daughter. It is a huge relief to no longer be fighting, and instead to be engaging and modeling healthy communication.

Online Course Participant/Parent

I feel a huge relief now

I generally feel like I know myself, and I have been in a lot of therapy (and was pretty over it before taking the course). But the work that I did, in the course, helped me face the mirror a bit more honestly and to ‘claim rather than blame’ as Hilary would say. I feel a huge relief now that I have a better understanding of what I have control over and what I do not.

Parent/Online Course Participant

we actually want to co-parent, together, again

My husband and I now feel much more valued by each other...we actually want to co-parent together again.

Parent/Online Course Participant

This program helped us set a course to be "captain of our ship!"

Strengthening the Co-Parenting Team gave us the support we needed to improve our parenting skills while our child was at Wilderness Therapy. The combination of individual on-line modules and telephone group session with other parents was great! This program helped us set a course to be "captain of our ship" and work together more cohesively. I enjoyed the group sessions with Hilary Moses--it was easier to deal with what we could change in ourselves when we shared and observed other parents struggles. Hilary is great at identifying our family’s struggles, quickly guiding self-assessment, and helping us to set a new, sustainable path. Highly recommended to parents with kids in Wilderness Therapy and those who want to avoid that drastic step.

We became a stronger co-parenting team, and we were better prepared to welcome our daughter home.

My husband and I participated in Solutions Parenting Support’s course “ Strengthening the Co-Parenting Team” while our daughter was enrolled in a therapeutic wilderness program. We wanted to find better ways to communicate with our daughter when she returned home. Through reading assignments, course materials, and facilitated telephone and Internet exchanges, Hilary helped us to identify our co-parenting struggles. During the course, we were able to align our parenting expectations and styles in a caring and understanding group setting. Conversation flowed easily, exchanges were lively, and participants remained engaged. As a result of participating in this course, we became a stronger co-parenting team, and we were better prepared to welcome our daughter home and avoid some of the issues and difficulties that created tension in our household before wilderness.
