You may feel that you’re not ready to get into the work of therapy, or that your question isn’t one that needs ongoing work. You want to get some sort of clarity on what you’re experiencing, though. The consultation service is offered specifically for that situation.
Many who make use of consultation are in professional positions, such as school faculty members working with students or other therapists working with their clients. Consultation can provide a different perspective, which can be important for moving forward when you feel stuck. I also provide consultations to parents struggling with their teenage children.
Unlike therapy, a consultation is not scheduled under the assumption that there will be a second session. We discuss the issue you’re facing and come to a practical next step for you to follow up with on your own.
If you’re not sure if consultation is for you, give me a call. We can discuss the situation briefly, and figure it out together.
