How to become a client:
The first step is to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, I will get to know you and your family, and we will discuss your desired outcomes. After the meeting, I will put together a plan of action with specific goals. You will have a chance to review the plan of action and suggest any changes you need. If we determine that it is a good fit, I will prepare the paperwork, and we will schedule our first session!
You can read a case study here that demonstrates how I use the consultation process to develop a plan of action.
After each session, I will check in with parents face-to-face. If we are unable to chat in person, I will prepare a summary of the session and send it via email. I will also send a detailed summary at the end of each week.
If needed, I take time to offer feedback, coaching, reflections, or a listening ear to parents. One of the advantages of mentoring in my client's home is it allows me to see family dynamics in action. It is often the case that my objective observations foster clarity and cohesion in the family.
If it is necessary, I will coordinate with teachers, coaches, therapists, and other caregivers in your son's life. This is part of the process that creates a cohesive front and allows mentorship to be as successful as possible.
You can read about typical client profiles, their areas of focus, and my recommended time commitments on the Client Profile page.
If you are hoping your son can reconcile past trauma or he is coping with issues like depression, anxiety, or other forms of psychological distress, then therapy may be a better fit. If these are issues he and your family are struggling with, I can help refer you to a therapist, but these are not the issues that I address.
