CONSULTATION FOR THERAPISTS


FOR THERAPISTS

In my thirty years of practice as an individual, couples and group therapist, I have enjoyed providing consultation to therapists. I know from this experience that informed and thoughtful consultation can have a significant impact on outcomes.

When I think about how I want to spend the next thirty years, I find myself increasingly drawn to devoting more of my time helping other therapists grow. So, I am offering virtual consultation to both new and more seasoned therapists.

I have a particular specialty helping people who have a significant trauma history and trouble attaching or feeling safe. I also have a wealth of experience treating couples using an attachment and Emotionally Focused couples therapy lens. I have worked at an agency, a psychiatric hospital and have been in private practice for over 23 years. I love helping therapists navigate cases and have a sensitive and gentle yet direct style.

Frequency of consultation sessions and fee are flexible.

If you or someone you know are interested in consultation services, please contact me at: nanlcsw@gmail.com or phone me at: (847)491.-1111 .
