Treatment with children can be complicated and requires parental involvement. Individual therapy includes ten-minute consults with parents at either the beginning or end of the child's session. During this time, parent's provide updates about progress at home and school. Interventions for use at home may be discussed or modeled as well. Sometimes, additional time is needed to discuss worsening symptoms, crisis management and development of structure at home. Additional time for parent consultation without the child may be required and scheduled in addition to the regular session. Parents are always welcome to schedule parent consultations as needed.
I understand how hard it is to reach out and find the right therapist for your child. I offer a free phone consultation for parents so that we can get to know each other a little and answer any questions you might have. Sign up for a time slot and you will receive a confirmation email letting you know the exact time within that hour that you are scheduled. I look forward to talking with you soon!
