Consultation Packages

Phone Consultations are typically done in a series of 5 or 10 sessions. Single sessions to “try out” the process are available.

Consultation focused on a problematic case or session is also available. Seeking consultation only when a case is stuck or during a crisis does not facilitate the development of skills as well as a systematic approach.

Other Services

Phone Consultation with 1 other clinician is also possible. Find a partner and reduce your costs.

EMDR Group Consultation is also offered. Pull together a group from your networks or agency; or let me know you are interested in participating in a phone group.
