WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Srusht

Zack gives a good balance of explaining developmental theories but with a practical, grounded, step by step approach with examples or scenarios of what actually happens with kids/ teens in real life as opposed to a high level theory that may not work in practice, all while respecting each person's unique parenting style or perspective.

Annie

Zack understands kid’s emotions and behaviors in a way that I don’t think anyone else does. He has found this really excellent balance of compassion and accountability.

Jillian

Zack provided excellent support for my kids and me. He provided me with helpful strategies and created  great relationships with the kids while doing so. He is a fantastic resource for families looking for support with behavioral concerns.
Testimonials
  • Who do you work best with?
    I work best with parents who are ready to accept help by committing to strategies outlined in coaching sessions and who are ready to be open about the current struggles they face with their child. These parents also understand that sustainable outcomes only occur after dedicating weeks to improving their behavior management skills.

  • What qualifies you to be a behavior management coach?
    Although I have a Bachelor's degree in psychology and Master's degree in school counseling (PK-12), the thousands of hours of direct experience I've accrued over 8+ years of working with extreme behaviors from kindergarten to twelfth grade is what qualifies me to coach parents on how to effectively manage challenging behaviors. Throughout my career, I've been fortunate to lead behavior committees to establish positive behavior plans for teachers, serve over 1,000 kids in structured and unstructured environments, and work closely with parents to encourage continuity of behavior plans between home and school. My unique experience is where you will find immense value and what sets me apart from other parent coaches.

  • Do you have any guarantees?
    I guarantee that my clients will fully understand the concepts covered in group or private coaching sessions in order to effectively apply them to their personal circumstances. If there is any misunderstanding after the completion of a respective curriculum, I will clarify concepts via voice message (over text) until the client fully understands the concept.
  • Do you have a disclosure?
    Disclosure: Please note that the services offered are coaching services and are not intended to serve as therapy or counseling. Coaching aims to facilitate personal and professional development, goal-setting, and skill enhancement. It does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental health issues. If you require therapeutic interventions or counseling for mental health concerns, it is recommended that you seek assistance from a licensed mental health professional. Furthermore, by participating in coaching sessions, you understand and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for any actions taken based on the information provided during the coaching process. The coach assumes no responsibility for the decisions or outcomes resulting from the coaching relationship. It is essential to exercise personal discretion and judgment when implementing any strategies or advice discussed during coaching sessions.
  • Are services in person or virtual?
    I make certain exceptions to see clients in person who are located in the Greater Philadelphia area, however, I work with the majority of clients virtually on Zoom or Google Meet.
  • How do you help clients achieve successful outcomes?
    Rather than relying on trends that hook discouraged parents only to leave them feeling more defeated, my approach relies on 4 fundamental concepts that have proven to be reliable for modifying the most extreme behaviors when adhered to with fidelity. These concepts serve as the foundation for your behavior management ability and provide a constant framework that helps you confidently navigate your child's behavior every day. The 4 concepts are: Mutual Submission: This powerful principle works by encouraging you to submit to your child within reason in order to respect their individuality with the ultimate goal of encouraging them to submit to your expectations as the authority figure. This never includes enabling or giving up your expectations to appease them, and usually looks like you surrendering total compliance and your child surrendering total defiance. After I help you master this concept, you will experience less stress and have more faith about the future instead of obsessing over daily battles. Boundaries: Contrary to popular belief, most behaviors are integrated based on how we relate to others; not solely on if someone possesses certain skills. When boundaries are set up correctly and maintained, your child will be consistently encouraged to relate to you in ways that promote the integration of positive behaviors, leading to sustainable results. Do not fall for the hype that skills alone rectify challenging behaviors! They need meaningful people in their life to hold boundaries before positive change can be expected and sustained. When we work together, I will clearly show you how to set up effective boundaries. Redirection Skills: Even when boundaries are properly set up, you should expect kids to defy you at times as they wrestle with establishing their identity. Redirection skills give you the tools and confidence to respectfully reinforce your boundaries rather than engaging in power struggles. Throughout my experience, I have created and mastered a range of reliable redirection skills that I will transfer to you. Consequences: Kids need to understand cause and effect to be grounded in reality. Consequences help achieve this by making it clear when they've gone too far, helping to discourage negative behaviors from frequently reoccurring. However, if consequences are too harsh they can make things worse by causing deep resentment, as well as enable negative behaviors if they're too lenient. I will help you understand how to consistently incorporate fair consequences that make a lasting impact instead of relying on overly-punitive measures or threats that suppress behavior rather than change it.
