Services offered in English and Spanish

Well Family attends to the needs of vulnerable families and children by providing accessible prevention and early intervention programs with a focus on Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH).

Healthy early relationships are the cornerstones of all infants’ emotional, cognitive, and physical growth and development. In addition to providing clinical services and parenting education we provide social support opportunities, which has been found to be the single most important protective factor against family dysfunction.

We believe that when parents mindfully reflect on their interactions with their children, three things occur: they don’t burden them with their own unresolved childhood issues; they help them reach their full developmental potential; and they help them build lifelong relationships with others.

  • Parent-child groups promote sensitivity, flexibility, and mindful communication between parents and children to enhance the attachment relationship.
  • Parenting classes teach parents how to set limits effectively by using empathy, love, and understanding to encourage cooperation and to strengthen the parent-child bond.
  • Parent coaching with a counselor or parent educator is tailored to the needs of your family and child, allowing you to address the areas in which you desire more support and guidance.

Parent Reviews

“In the Mindful Parenting Group, both my husband and I learned to be proactive in our discipline. As new parents, it’s so easy to rely on the parenting skills you were raised with. We unlearned some parenting habits that we did not want to continue.”

– Eve, Peter, and baby Sophia

“Because of what I’ve learned in this group, and how I’ve grown as a parent, I’ve deepened my relationship with my child and he is thriving because of it. I now have empathy for him and see him as someone who needs my help, and it’s my job as his parent to give him that help. I am so grateful for our time in the Mindful Parenting Group.”

“It was great to hear the experiences of other parents and to share opinions on how to navigate common issues. The class helped me to stay present. A great opportunity to gain tools and structure for parents”

“The Loving Discipline class helped us as parents to speak about what’s going on and hear and learn from other parents. It was great to gain knowledge from intelligent and caring teachers. It was even better than I thought it would be. I learned new things and skills about children and their development and how to navigate better decisions for parenting. The leaders were the best I have had in a child/parent group. They knew what to talk about, how to manage the time for sharing and learning.”
