Parenting is no easy task! We are here to help!

In a world of conflicting advice and never-ending demands on our time, it can seem next to impossible for families to know what's best for their children.
Brigid Collins is pleased to announce a monthly series of parenting seminars for parents, grandparents, families and friends of children, aimed at supporting positive parenting and tackling tricky issues like managing children's anxiety and teaching responsibility. Evidence-informed seminars (all led by experienced, highly-trained parenting coaches) are held each Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Brigid Collins
in Bellingham. Please see the calendar below for more details.

Consultation, coaching and other intensive services will also be available for families, with a free one-on-one consultation. For more information or questions, contact Megan Brown Douglas, MSW, LICSW,
