Providing mental health individual, family, and group therapy is a rewarding service to provide. We have the unique opportunity to facilitate growth and healing for those we serve. It is always a pleasure to be a part of that healing process. It also requires that we, as therapists, be informed and as competent and capable as possible in order to provide the highest quality of service. No matter our education and licensure, our respective Code of Ethics requires this standard level of care, and requires ongoing training; including consultation services:
Accessing consultation not only keeps our skill set high, but is also our ethical responsibility as mental health therapists. For those of who practice in a setting where access to a skilled supervisor and/or other practitioners with a similar specialty, opportunities for consultation can be as close as the office next door. However, for those who practice within a setting where you are the only therapist with a specific specialty, your supervisor is too busy to provide consultation or does not have experience in your specialized area, you are in private practice by yourself, are looking to expand your skill set, etc; it will be essential you access outside consultation in order to practice in a competent manner per your code of ethics.
I provide professional consultation services, within my scope of specialty, in the following areas:
Within the consultation setting, work will be tailored to each specific person's goals to expand their own individual clinical practice. Focus on ethical practice, diagnosis, assessment, treatment planning, and implementation of appropriate treatment modality will always be present. Case consultation will be a component of every meeting.
My rate for professional consultation is $150 per hour for individual, or $100 per person for group (2 or more).
