Brief Consultation for Clinicians

For years I have accepted phone calls, emails and chat requests from other clinicians seeking to pick my brain on a challenging client situation on an informal basis whether seeing a client on an individual, couple or family basis or separated parents sorting out issues related to the care of children between themselves through asseessment/evaluation, mediation, or parenting coordination. 

I have always been responsive on a friendly basis to provide support.  

If you are a clinician, feeling stuck with a challenging situation or client, you are welcome to call to chat for a brief informal consultation. These conversations typically take 5 to 30 minutes. 

Please note, if I do not already know you, I will do a credential check to be assured the caller isn't calling on one's own behalf for a personal issue, but truly is a clinician calling on a professional matter.  

Even great clinicians need support sometimes. Use the link below now to set up a brief consultation.
