Parent Coaching

Vulnerabiity is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.
— Brene Brown

Parenting is often complicated and filled with challenges. This is especially true for families struggling with a child that has severe behavioral, emotional issues or battling addiction. These situations add to the complexity of parent-child dynamics and may require more individualized attention and treatment to repair the family unit. 
Through Parallel Process Parent Coaching I fill a specialized niche, assisting parents of children in intensive therapy, residential or wilderness programs by developing new skills and discovering family communications patterns. The process provides parents with new tools and learning while supporting the work of the child through treatment and beyond.


  • Learn what they need for do for themselves to develop healthy relationships with their child and with others in their lives;

  • Have a safe place to discuss their struggles with their troubled preteen, adolescent or young adult child;

  • Enhance their self-awareness so they recognize when they are falling into an old pattern;

  • Discover how to empower their children to solve his/her own problems;

  • Cultivate more sharing and reciprocity in the parent-child relationship;

  • Develop positive listening and communication skills;

  • Receive real-time support in their daily life to help navigate the rocky road of parenting 

  • Become more confident and skillful in raising mature, responsible and resilient children;

The result is improved communication, a closer connection and an environment that supports the healthy growth of the entire family through boundary setting, positive interactions, listening skills and increased engagement.

Working in collaboration with other skilled professionals, this triangle approach forms a solid and consistent foundation of support that helps parents discover new possibilities with their children and strengthens and repairs the family bond.


"I have had the pleasure of partnering with Rosalind Franklin, who has served as Parent/Family Coach at Evergreen Colorado's Forrest Heights Lodge, in coordination with our Resident Family Therapist. Rosalind brings to this unique field, a level of creativity, expertise and accountability that is a breath of fresh air and I have seen the excellent results she has achieved first hand. Rosalind provides the necessary direction parents desire as well as the organized follow through with the entire family and bringing a better understanding and clarity to the entire "Parallel Process.”  Once a goal is set, she skillfully helps the family understand the task at hand and sensitively guides the parents forward, towards achieving the agreed upon goal . She confronts all barriers and fears and supports both the growth of the child as well as the family. I thoroughly enjoy working with Rosalind."                      Linda Clefisch, LCSW, Executive Director, Forest Heights Lodge, Colorado

Life Coaching

Relationships are all there is. Everything in the universe only exists because it is in relationship to everything else. Nothing exists in isolation. We have to stop pretending we are individuals that can go it alone.
— Margaret Wheatley 

Fulfilling lives don’t happen by accident—they take effort and planning. Coaching can help you clarify your priorities, and determine what you need to do to create a satisfying, meaningful and well-balanced life. My job is to encourage you, support you, and hold you accountable for following through with the changes you want to bring about for yourself.

Rosalind Franklin can help you:

  • Clarify your life and career goals
  • Develop an action plan to help you achieve those goals
  • Move through transitions with grace and ease
  • Improve your relationships at work, at home, and with yourself
  • Find a healthy balance between your personal and professional lives
Our conversations are really a gold mine of insight. Thank you so much for helping me get on track in moving forward.
— Soha, Speech Therapist, San Francisco
Rosalind has a unique talent and knack for focusing in on the issues that need to be dealt with in a pragmatic and practical way. The no nonsense approach that does not dwell on the past is a powerful approach to solving problems and helping to move forward in one’s life. She has helped me enormously in dealing with my insecurities and how to deal with my adult children in guiding them and at the same time keeping my compass pointing in the right direction. I enjoy the complete privacy and confidentiality of our conversations and have a high regard for her integrity.

We work with our clients to deliver results by developing clear measurable goals and coach through an action plan to support the bottom line results, through trust, communication and retention of employees and team members.

Rosalind is amazingly intuitive and perceptive and identifies those things in each of us which blocks us from our own success and has established herself as my most significant and highly valued business partner. I like working with Rosalind because I sense her complete commitment to me and my success. She gives me immediate feedback in the form of a post-session e mail which also contains the homework assignments we collaboratively established during the session. I am definitely made accountable for my actions and inactions by her. She has evolved with me demonstrating a remarkable capacity for adaptability.
