The Parenting Institute in Pittsburgh is a non-profit Pennsylvania corporation founded by Robert M. Wilson, PhD, Anthony McGroarty, Psy D, and Lynn MacBeth, JD, MS, LPC. Our purpose is to provide conflict resolution services to families in transition by offering co-parenting, reunification, and individual counseling at reduced fees. As of January 1, 2023, our fees have been simplified to cost $150 per session. Unless another allocation is agreed upon or specified, the parenting partners will split this fee in half for joint sessions.
We are excited to guide you on your journey to healthy parenting. In our documents section, you will find the intake information to complete and return prior to scheduling your first session.
The forms must be filled out and returned by all parties before the intake session is scheduled.
Your first session will be an individual session in which we discuss your information and get "caught up" about what has brought you to counseling and what you hope to get out of the experience. If you are seeing us for co-parenting, after each of your individual sessions have been completed, we will begin having sessions in which we are all together. If you are seeing us for reunification, after each of your individual sessions are complete, we will begin seeing the reunifying parent and child/children together. If you are seeing us for individual counseling, we are here to help you meet your personal goals for your emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing.
The focus of our sessions will include:
*Family and Individual Growth and Wellbeing
* Developing skills for joint-decision making
* Reducing family and interpersonal conflict
* Acquiring effective communication skills
* Establishing healthy boundaries
* Designing appropriate custody schedules
* Reducing your need to go to court
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!
