More about this group

Cooperative and Positive Parenting

When parents are not getting along, separating, or even after divorce, the task of working together cooperatively can be overwhelming. Adjusting parenting relationships, during and after separation/divorce, is often quite difficult due to the emotional intensity, confusion and multiple changes occuring in day to day routines. Our low cost information workshops offer parents an opportunity to bring concerns and discover creative, and effective strategies to build a co-parenting relationship that is clear, consistent and caring. Our approach encourages parents and caregivers to resolve conflict in a healthy manner and to develop positive, proactive parenting. www.jeffpacker.com

More about this group

Parenting Teens

as our children turn the corner into adolescence, a developmental stage filled with social, emotional, physical and intellectual change, our parenting must shift and adjust to effectively provide the guidance and instruction (discipline) that best suits our teens. Parents can find themselves frustrated, confused and downright fed up at this stage. Our low/no cost workshop is designed to provide a relaxed environment where parents and caregivers can vent concerns openly and generate/learn new, creative and effective strategies for helping their teens achieve healthy development and become successful contributors to their family, community and society. see www.jeffpacker.com

Professional Connections

I have been and continue to recommend Jeff Packer as a therapist since he began practicing in 1991. He has a gift for working with people of all ages which enables him to expertly navigate the challenges of meeting the needs of the diverse individuals within a family system. I have had the privilege of working with Jeff as my supervisor and co-therapist since 2016 and have experienced significant professional growth under his guidance. As Jeff’s wife since 1986, my perspective provides unique insights and I continue to witness his tireless drive to help those who desire change, personal growth, healing and improved relationships. Jeff is persistent in his effort to expand his therapeutic strategies. He participates in regular ongoing training, such as Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and most recently Eye Movement Desensitization Reprograming (EMDR). His wealth of experience and passion for professional growth enable him to broach even the toughest of subjects with the confident compassion of a skilled seasoned professional.
