Our Story

For 41 years, LCPC Parent Education has been helping families thrive by integrating time tested advice and cutting edge research. Our highly regarded teaching staff all have a Master’s degree or 20 years of experience! The program both educates and nurtures parents in a Christian atmosphere by providing quality education, resources, support and friendships- many that last a lifetime.

Last year, over 600 parents and children participated in our day and evening classes. And with our expansion of evening classes, we expect over 700 this year. As our tagline boasts, “If you have a child 0-18 years old, we have a class for you!”

A Message From Our Director

As I enter my 31st year of administration, education & counseling, I am honored to be part of this very special program that touches so many lives.  As a parent of three children,  I am thrilled by all the practical resources we offer. My life passion is helping families thrive—and it has been my honor to journey with so many families in Southern California since 1989. I also love connecting families to the amazing resource of God—and watch Him work powerfully in their lives. Come join the life changing legacy of LCPC Parent Ed where we honestly journey through life together!
