I work with clients in person or via telephone, FaceTime, and Skype.
Sometimes a problem isn’t serious enough to need therapy, or maybe you’re not sure whether or not professional help is warranted. I offer pay-as-you-go consultation sessions during which you can discuss your concerns and I can give some input and make recommendations.
I don’t need a lot of history. I won’t ask for a bunch of details for the sake of “gathering information.” I can figure out a lot from just a little and my expertise goes way beyond run of the mill advice. In addition, I work quickly so that in your first as much as in your last session, the consultation ends with you having a plan or a new idea or the words to start an important conversation or a different perspective or maybe some validation for what you’ve been doing.
Here are good reasons to contact me:
- Your son or daughter acts disrespectfully around the house and you don’t know how to control, manage or stop it.
- Your teen is so moody around the house that it is affecting the entire household. You want to know if this is just “typical teen behavior” or a sign or something more problematic.
- You want to know if your kid’s depression, anxiety, poor school performance, or ADD is bad enough to seek professional help.
- You want to know how to talk to your kids about your upcoming separation or divorce or need to move to another residence or school district.
- You want help in talking with your son or daughter about drugs or sex.
- Your kid is being bullied for being nonathletic / nerdy / overweight / quiet and you want to know what to do, how to help, and whether you should do anything at all.
- You are struggling with your kids who prefer your ex’s house because there are no rules there and your ex has weaponized his or her popularity with them.
- Your teen doesn’t talk with you about much of anything, and you are feeling totally in the dark about what is going on in his or her life.
- You need help managing your son or daughter’s aggressive behavior around the home.
- You need some help establishing limits and following through with consequences, or even perhaps coming up with reasonable consequences that actually incentivize a better choice.
- You are unhappy with the climate at home (yelling, sarcasm, excessive sibling rivalry) and want to do something about it.
- You want to constructively address your child or teenager’s insensitivity to the impact of his or her choices on others.
- You are a single parent feeling bullied or intimidated by an older teen.
