Ten Questions Most Parents Get Wrong

Schedule a Personal Consultation with John Rosemond

I am currently available for personal consultations with parents. At present, I conduct consultations by phone only. I do not test, diagnose, or recommend medication. Furthermore, although I am a psychologist, licensed as such by the North Carolina Psychology Board, I do not employ psychological principles in counseling with parents. My advice is based on biblical principles as well as parenting tradition and commonsense. I speak only with parents and charge by the session, which can last up to 90 minutes. I do not charge for relatively short phone calls or to answer emails in between sessions.
