Tammy Gold, Parenting Coach
Tammy Gold brings a wealth of expertise, compassion and personal experience to parent coaching. A licensed psychotherapist in New York and New Jersey, Tammy earned an undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania and a Master's Degree in social work from Columbia. Though there are many therapists and coaches, Tammy does both. With certifications as a life coach and a parenting coach, she offers a rare combination of experience.
Tammy's professional experience also includes caring for cancer patients at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and supporting emotionally disturbed children and their families in a New York City mental health clinic. It was the combination of these experiences — and becoming a parent for the first time herself — that led Tammy to create a new approach to parent coaching. She combined her education, professional and real-life experience to create an entirely unique approach to parenting — one that provides parents with the proper tools and support to approach both pragmatic and emotional issues with confidence.
"I often find that in the rush to become a supportive parent, parents lose sight of their own well-being. So I developed an approach that helps parents better understand their own needs. Working together, we are able to create solutions that fit into their value systems, families and everyday lives," Tammy writes.
Gold Parent Coaching (www.goldparentcoaching.com) is a unique service designed to help build stronger families from the inside out. Lead by Tammy, its team of therapists and coaches offer a comprehensive range of services that includes pregnancy care, nanny support, and group or one-on-one counseling.
Tammy practices in both New York and New Jersey, either in a traditional setting, or in the privacy of a client's home. She resides in Short Hills, New Jersey with her husband and daughter.
