Amity coaches are family specialists trained to understand your family dynamics. Coaches are skilled in identifying presenting issues, navigating complex problems, and providing support and education along the way.

Family Sessions are ideal for families that have older children/teens and find themselves stuck in higher levels of negativity, constant battles, and may have concerns about their teens' safety or family stability. Family sessions are effective when all family members are involved and through the use of skills drawn from mediation and solution-focused practice, this process is highly effective in creating lasting change.
