I am very pleased to report I now offer Online Parent Coordination.
I have considerable experience offering this service and find no disadvantage at all! In fact in some cases it is actually preferable to having parents physically in the same room. This is an example of how we can use technology to help and see it as an advantage.
This means that my services are now available to you wherever you live in Canada.
