Hire a Certified CPS Provider for the Well-Being of Your Child

Guided by Dr. Ross Greene, Mariah flaunts a Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) certification as a result of completing an intensive 24-week training regime. She helps parents understand what their kids are going through and enables them to create supportive environments. It’s no secret that managing a child’s ADHD-related challenges can be extremely stressful. However, many effective problem-solving methods assist parents in positively navigating their child’s behavior. CPS is a trauma-sensitive approach that seeks to care for kids with ADHD in the best possible manner.

CPS is based on collaboration between parents and children. Some of the major benefits of Mariah’s CPS strategy include strengthening relationships through enhanced communication and conflict resolution.
