Coaching for Managing with Parental
Alienation and/or a Narcissistic Ex
Separating can hold a multiple of challenges and chief among those challenges is settling disputes and co-parenting while managing interpersonal turmoil.
Even if your matter is settled, many parents experience ongoing conflict with the other parent. The parent coach can help teach/educate/facilitate strategies towards a more successful co-existance.
The first meeting is scheduled for 3 hours duration. The purpose of the first meeting is to get acquainted and to learn about you, your family history, the children, current issues and begin the coaching process.
As a social worker, I am respectful of people's different income levels. As such, the fee is set on a fee-for-service basis using a sliding scale that ranges from $150 - $400 per hour. The actual fee then is determined by your sole income or joint income if now in a cohabiting relationship, or may be determined by your assets. You will be charged from the beginning of the scheduled appointment time, even if you are late. Appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours (two business days) will be billed for one hour. Further, time will be taken at the beginning of the first meeting for me to present my qualifications, experience and approach to counselling so that service is provided on an informed basis. This is deemed part of the time provided and billed for.
Third Party Payments (EAP and other Benefit Providers):
Pleased be advised that I do not accept payment by third party payers (benefit or EAP providers) whatsoever. People are directly responsible for payment of services as per the information above at the time of service. A receipt will be provided with which persons can seek reimbursement from their EAP or benefit provider. I take no responsibility for your reimbursement. Reimbursement remains a matter between you and your benefit or EAP provider.
If you do seek reimbursement through your benefit or EAP provider and I am called to verify the charge, I will do so with your implied consent. My disclosure will be limited to advising of my credentials as well as verifying the billing information, service provided and persons served.
