A Family Life Coach is trained to objectively help families reach their full potential or help navigate difficult situations and changes in family life. (Dr. Kimberly Allen, 2017)
Situations that a family life coach assists with include: communication in marriage, managing work/life balance, the care of elderly parents, stress management and conflict management.
Drawing from family life education, family therapy, and positive psychology this emerging field is designed to serve a non-clincial population.
