Coaching & Groups

Are you a parent of a child exploring gender identity, having challenges with self-regulation, anxiety, sensory processing and/or ADHD/executive function?  Perhaps your family is adjusting to your child's gender exploration and/or transition, or you are seeking to better understand your child's behavior.  Merrimack River Wellness provides a safe and supportive environment to explore and process these challenges.

Lisa knows that being a parent can be one of life’s greatest gifts, and also can be extremely challenging.  She endeavors to create a place where parents of children of all ages can come to address these challenges. Lisa knows how easy it is to neglect your own self-care, while being a thoughtful, intentional parent.  She can help work with you to create a more realistic balance of care, expectations and one that can truly make parenting easier to manage.
