Roots & Wings

Parent Coaching from Cradle to College

What We Do: 

The Roots and Wings Parent Coaching program offers one-on-one support to parents in the comfort of their own home, by phone, or via email. With a life devoted to teaching, counseling, and guiding new parents into their most important role as loving caregivers, Gail Root has the perfect combination of child development knowledge and perinatal psychology experience. 


Prices start at $200/hour for the initial consult, and $100/hour for follow-up visits 


*A sliding fee schedule is available and we can also design custom packages to fit your specific needs.*


If you are interested in having Gail lead a small group workshop for you and some friends, that option is also available, please contact us for more information. 

About Gail

With an M.A in Clinical Psychology, Pre & Perinatal Psychology and a B.S in Child Development as well as 50 years of experience in the field- as a parent coach, mom, grandma, entrepreneur, and more; I am well suited to support your journey through parenthood. 

I founded Parents Place in 1988, and the Monterey County Maternal Mental Health Task Force in 2016. I also have served on the Board of the Birth Network of Monterey County. I was the program manager who set up the Parenting Connection of Monterey County. Having served in Monterey County as a Volunteer for over 35 years, I was honored to receive the Monterey County Outstanding Woman of the Year in 2002. 


I now provide consultation services from the comfort of your home. 


“When you choose Gail to coach you in the healthiest ways to lovingly respond to your newborn-to-college aged son or daughter, you choose to have the very best evidenced based parenting tips readily available.” Shirley Devol VanLieu, Ph.D. (USC)

“You have been such an incredible source of strength and support. Thank you for helping build my confidence when I had none. What you have done has supported me in my transition into motherhood, and also supported my husband, my mother as she transitions to a grandmother, and not just my baby, but all my future children.” H.L. a grateful mother

"You are a model of success to be admired and imitated around the globe!" Bobbi Jo Lyman, PhD, Faculty Santa Barbara Graduate Institute
