Whether individual or in a group setting, this is a place where you can present cases, ask questions, share concerns, and ultimately come to the best vision of the kind of guidance you want to offer, and the essence of the clinical or spiritual counseling practice you want to develop.  Case consultation can be scheduled by phone, video, or in office visits. 

Whether you are emerging from years of academic work and beginning your professional life in private practice, or engaging a new career later in life (as I did), having access to guidance when and how you need it can be critically important. 

Whether you become part of our group, or choose to receive consultation about your clients individually on an as needed basis, my goal is to help increase your acumen, skill, confidence, and above all, relationship to compassion as you engage in the work of counseling others, helping them tolerate discomfort and guiding them in and through their deepest challenges. We can discuss professional goals if needed, and determine the skills and strategies necessary to reach them. If there is openness, we can also look at parallels in your personal process as a way to deepen your understanding of the work you are doing with clients.

Whether you are an MFTI, licensed clinician in private practice, LCSW, or spiritual counselor seeking guidance, I can help you feel more prepared, confident, and inspired to do the depth work you want to offer your clients. 

What is covered in the group proces?

Most professionals I have worked with come with various levels of competency and needs depending on their experience and career trajectory.  Our collaboration will include the following areas as is needed:

  • Bio-Psycho-Social and Risk Assessment
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment Plan Development 
  • Cultural Competency
  • Therapeutic Interventions
  • Developmental Theories
  • Spiritual/Existential Issues
  • Community Resource Coordination
  • Legal and Ethical Standards

Group work provides a unique opportunity to receive constructive feedback and ideas from me as well as a diverse group of peers. It is expected that all participants will present cases as well as providing concise, helpful input for others. My goal for all who seek consultation is to create community--a stimulating safe environment that encourages progressive thought and professional growth, and a focus, regardless of theory or approach, on compassion and camaraderie. 

You can rely on this kind of process to not only help the individuals and couples you are working with, but also help you evolve and grow, both personally and professionally.
