Individual and Family Consultuation

Child, adult, family and couples counseling is available. Sessions are typically 45-60 minutes in length and payment is due at each session unless other arrangements have been made. Your goals are the starting point!

 

A non judgmental, nurturing and encouraging environment is created  to support movement towards your goals. The most helpful work is done outside of the session, therefore “homework” assignments are encouraged.

 

Children needing therapeutic support will receive interactive play, problem solving training and skill building sessions that focus on stabilizing their mood and/or behavior.

 

With your consent, a collaborative approach for treatment may often include contacting professionals working with you, such as a psychiatrist or school counselor or communicating with significant family or friends involved with your care.

Parent Counseling

Parent consultation is a way to get one on one parenting guidance with a variety of concerns. This process typically involves an initial meeting with parents to identify parenting goals and/or child behavior goals. The parents and clinician will then create a plan. Some plans may require only the parents to attend sessions and other plans may involve parents and children together or individual seesions with your child. Meetings can occur in our office or in the comfort of your home (additional fees may apply for home meetings)

Adult Stress

Teen Stress

Parents of Preschooler Stress

Unfortunately with more demands on individuals and family, we don’t have as much time left to manage our stress. Without regular stress reduction exercises, our physical and emotional health can be negatively impacted.

Let’s face it, relationships are HARD work. It becomes even harder to have a relationship when there are communication struggles. There is no quick fix to improving communication, but this information can help you get started.
