MELISSA LIPSON, M.S.Ed. founder and director

Melissa has been a school counselor for three decades and has expanded her services beyond the rockland county school district with Lipson Family Coaching. Melissa will work with your child/teen in the office, comfort of your home or virtually. Using a variety of strategies and techniques, she teaches important life skills that allow your child or teen to protect his/her emotional well-being and to function at their best now and in the future. Lipson explained coaching is a very unique service. During coaching, a client works with a coach, to clarify goals and identify obstacles in order to create action plans so the child or family can achieve desired results. The process of coaching works with the client from where they are in the present moment, whereas counseling and therapy typically work with the client to diagnose or resolve past issues. Lipson Family Coaching offers one-time coaching sessions as well as lengthier packages that can last up to 12-weeks depending on the client’s needs.

Individual Coaching Sessions

Children and teens learn how to create happiness, build confidence and self-esteem so that they can succeed in school and relationships. We help children learn how to become more aware as they identify their feelings and move through anxiety and fear so they can step outside of their comfort zone, create courage, have healthier relationships and make better decisions.
