Therese (Tess) Connolly, LCSW has been there herself and knows how it feels to feel frustration and stress over her relationship with her child. Known as Tess the Parent Reset Coach, here is more from her website:

Through my 20 + years of work as a clinical social worker/psychotherapist and parent coach…and trial and error (in my own home) I have created some simple RESET plans for you to:

  • Build a greater connection with your child
  • Create practical strategies and systems that work in your home
  • Learn the specific skills and language to be a more effective parent
  • Be on the same page with your partner about parenting
  • Have a happier home life

My parenting coaching practice is unique and specific to you and your family’s needs.

I believe YOU are your greatest resource and the best parenting “skills” can be found right inside of you!
