Dr. Robert Zeitlin

Positive Psychologist, Parenting Coach

I have been working with families on the Main Line for the last 20 years. My passion is to lift up parents who want to raise kick-ass kids. After working solo for most of that time, my practice is turning from lone wolf to wolf pack. We are taking a team approach to expand the ways that we can help families.

This is not just a business decision. Now is a time for radical change. Our whole society, even institutions that deliver human services like mental health and education and health care, is constructed on a framework that fosters racism, toxic masculinity, ableism, xenophobia, transphobia, and homophobia. We need new models to move our institutions in a more inclusive direction. And that shift starts with our families.

Our board-certified behavior analysts, licensed and school-certified psychologists offer a team approach for families that need more than hourly therapy.

The clinicians on our small team are so good at what they do that I feel like I put together a team of Super Friends (not coincidentally my favorite cartoon growing up). We are equipped to provide a wide range of services in addition to therapy:

  • parent coaching
  • executive functioning coaching
  • behavior consultation
  • comprehensive and focused (e.g., Executive Function) psychoeducational evaluations

Our team finds solutions for kids and families who were left with short-term fixes after working with tutors and therapists. Since we work outside the constraints of the therapy hour, we focus on the horizon, not the clock.

The secret ingredient is trust. This includes the trust that we have for our clients, the trust that we have in each other, and the commitment we make to take radical responsibility for our families, dedicating all of our resources to our clients’ goals.

We are dedicated to lift up the parents who dare to nurture their family cultures, the “gardens,” in which our future leaders, innovators, and heroes are raised. The families we support aren’t just raising healthy, happy, independent adults. Their kids are the next generation’s super-parents.

If you would like to explore how we can help your family, we would like to hear from you.

Good families — even great families — are off track 90 percent of the time! The key is that they have a sense of destination. They know what the “track” looks like. And they keep coming back to it time and time again.

Dog Poo for the Win!

Why was I laughing and smiling last night while I was cleaning dog poo out of the crevices of the sole of my hiking boot? Three times in the last week, I have stepped in dog poo (and one time in old chewing gum). This never happens. Just to be clear: I’m not lucky....
