Frequently Asked Questions
Are all the services provided with Youthful Connections virtual? Is virtual therapy just as good as in office therapy?

Can I enroll in one-on-one parent coaching without enrolling in the Certified Breakthrough Parenting Program?
No, unfortunately at this time one-on-one parent coaching is reserved for individuals who are currently enrolled in the Certified Breakthrough Parenting Program (CBPP) that require additional support and assistance with achieving their goals and meeting their needs. The one-on-one parenting portion does REQUIRE a fee and is time limited. In later months, Youthful Connections will be launching a Parenting Program that will focus on meeting the needs of Parents in a solo capacity rather than group setting.
