Please welcome Mercedes Samudio! Below is an excerpt from her About Me page:
"Since 2007 I have been working with families and children to help them develop healthy communication skills, manage severe emotional issues, develop coping skills to manage behaviors, create dynamic parent-child bonds, and navigate social media & technology as a family. Throughout the course of my career I have worked with adoptive families, foster families teen parents, parents navigating the child protective services system, and children living with mental illness. In 2014 I began to transition into my private practice where I focused on parent coaching and guiding families to reducing unwanted behaviors, developing effective parenting strategies, creating healthy communication habits, and designing social media/tech plans for their household."
What a great episode! In this episode, I talk with Mercedes about lots of cool things, but the main takeaway I received came from our discussion on coaching versus counseling. I think you will find it to be interesting as well. Mercedes has transitioned her practice into working as a parent coach. Check out her website for more information on all the cool stuff she is doing.
