Supervised Video Visits
Do you and your child live in different States?
Do you and your child live in a different Country?
Are you incarcerated or will be incarcerated?
Will you be spending time in a treatment facility?
Do you travel often?
Is there some other barrier that is keeping you from maintain a loving, consistent relationship with your child/ren?
Supervised Video visitations may be the assistance your family needs.
How it works
Your child visits from their home.
I am at my location.
You are at your location.
We all join a ZOOM call.
Your child’s primary caregiver can leave the room/area and you can have special, meaningful time with your child, supervised by me.
I stay on the line (but can black out my screen to be less invasive).
During the intake we will go over all expectations for the visits. I speak to both parents and hear what your child needs.
All calls are recorded to protect all parties.
There are a lot of fun things you can do to enjoy the time with your child.
