can be available to your staff and leadership team on a bi-weekly, or monthly basis for group or individual clinical supervision, as well as for crisis debrief sessions.  I provide case consultation and support with implementing evidence based approaches or interventions to meet the needs of your clients.   Parameters regarding format, process, and goals are agreed upon ahead of time to meet your specific needs. I retain all session notes as part of my practice, and these files are considered confidential.
