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 offer 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 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Brigid Collins in Bellingham. 

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, at (360) 734-4616 or
