Toni Mazzaglia, MC
Young Person Mentor & Parent Coach
Over the past twenty years I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings including wilderness, residential and transitional living. I have also supported many parents through their process as their child/adolescent/young adult navigates life. Seeing people learn and grow, watching difficult situations become easier has been an honor over the years. I believe I've learned as much through this journey as the families I've been able to support.
I received my Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Education from the University of New Hampshire and I earned my Masters degree in Mental Health from the University of Phoenix. I am also trained in DBT and EMDR. I use these modalities in parent coaching to help parents understand the brain function behind behaviors and responses, both in themselves and their kids. I also have training in complex trauma, attachment issues, depression, anxiety and healthy life-skill development.
I am originally from New England and have lived in Utah since 2000. I am an avid skier and that is what originally brought me out west. I also enjoy all things outdoors, any type of water sports especially rafting, kayaking and paddle boarding. Additionally, cooking and eating good food, spending time with my husband and friends and getting back east to see my family are ways I like to recharge and spend my free time.
It is important to note that a child in clinical crisis — such as self-harm or suicidal ideation — must be supported by an individual or family therapist, not Solutions Parenting Support. Our crisis parent coaching support is meant to help you with highly challenging situations within the parenting dynamic and give you strategic solutions to better respond to your child’s behaviors.
