Clinical and Administrative Consultation for Counseling and Therapy Professionals

Professional consultation is an important component of continuing our professional and personal development as therapists. Consultation is a chance to have input from other counselors so that we reduce tunnel-vision in treating clients and are exposed to new ideas, input, and feedback.

About Professional Consultation

Consultation is for already licensed therapists and counselors. While counselors already working in group practices, facilities, or community organizations may already have more interaction with and support from colleagues, consultation is not limited to clinicians in private practice – it can be for all of us.

I offer individual counseling consultation, in-person or via telehealth/virtual meeting room. Individual supervision meetings are one hour long and include administrative and clinical support and guidance.

I am a post-modern therapist in both training and practice, which means my consultation will be rooted in these principles. Other modalities may be addressed and included, however, if your main focus is CBT, DBT, or similar approaches then I may not be as helpful for you clinically. Just like no one specific therapy fits every client one hundred percent, neither does consultation.

Consultation Areas of Focus

Professional Development

As therapists, prioritizing professional development is vital for delivering high-quality mental health care. Engaging in continuous learning, seeking mentorship, and participating in peer support help us stay abreast of the latest research and enhance our effectiveness in assisting clients. I can help you find opportunities and ideas for professional development as well as decide which paths to take.

Self of the Therapist

Taking good care of clients means taking good care of yourself. “Self of the therapist” involves reflection on personal values and experiences to navigate client interactions with empathy and authenticity. We may explore your experiences both professionally in sessions and outside of sessions in your personal life.

Client Care and Treatment

Therapists play a pivotal role in providing client care by offering a safe and empathetic space for individuals to explore their thoughts and emotions. Through evidence-based techniques and active listening, therapists help clients gain insight into their challenges and develop coping strategies. We’ll explore your client cases to support you in building trust and collaboration with clients, navigate their care and treatment progression, and ensure effective care.

Administrative Concerns

Therapists face administrative challenges such as managing client records, billing, and scheduling, which can divert attention from direct client care. Navigating insurance regulations and confidentiality standards adds complexity. Balancing clinical expertise with efficient administration is vital. Streamlining processes and adopting technology can help therapists prioritize client well-being. When I don’t know the answer already, I can help you find it so that you can focus your time elsewhere.

Frequently Asked Questions

Consultation sessions are typically one hour long. The frequency of sessions depends on how frequently you see clients, how many clients you see, and how much support you feel you need. Unlike supervision, there are no set requirements for consultation. Sessions may be weekly, every other week, once a month, or as needed.

Consultation costs $165 per hour-long individual session. Please inquire for a sliding scale.

You would not practice under my license during consultation, so it is not a formal, contractual relationship.

Suppose you are seeking consultation regarding approaches I do not practice or about specific topics I do not have as much experience with (such as substance abuse). In that case, I encourage you to look for other professionals to consult with. I’m happy to try to help you find those colleagues and introduce you to those who I know. Often, we require consultation with multiple colleagues to cover everything we’re working with.

Please still fill out a form for a consultation consult so we can figure out how to get you support in managing and treating clients and growing your business.

I also recommend seeking a peer consultation group in which colleagues meet together at no cost to each other. You can use resources such as Facebook groups, therapist directories,, or other therapist resources to find colleagues.
