Amy Werner, B.S.Amy Werner, B.S.,
Certified Parent Coach

Amy Werner, Certified Parent Coach, has been with GMH since 2012.

Amy Werner is a certified Parent Coach through the Parent Coach Institute and Seattle Pacific University. She has an undergraduate degree in Education and her professional experience includes years as a classroom teacher, curriculum development and providing professional development for teachers and administrators nationally. As the mother of two teenagers, Amy has experience with parenting typical developmental milestones and struggles as well as behavioral health and educational diagnosis issues.
Amy works with many different family issues, and particularly enjoys helping parents of children with educational or behavioral health diagnoses to find alternative ways to approach parenting. Another area of interest is helping parents advocate for their children in the school system.

Through individual or couples Parent Coaching, Amy works with parents experiencing frustration with their current circumstances through a solution-focused coaching method. The coaching process is finite and includes four phases during which Amy helps facilitate changes by getting parents to purposefully focus on:

  • What is currently working and what is not working
  • What is the desired outcome/solution for the family?
  • What specific steps are needed to achieve that outcome that fit each unique family?
  • How to sustain that change over time and different circumstances

Small Group Parent Support is themed by diagnosis issues of the children. It employs the same coaching process but with the benefit of connecting with other parents experiencing the same struggles. Check with Amy directly to learn of current offerings.

Treatment Philosophy

Amy has learned through her years of parenting and coaching that the change has to begin with the parent. Books, blogs and parenting videos are great resources but each parent requires individual solutions that fit the characteristics of their unique family dynamic.
