Consultations

In-Office or In-Home Consultations

The Initial Consultation will be with either one or often both partner consultants and will be for approximately 1 hour to 1½ hours. The Initial Consultation will usually be with adults only.

Follow-up Consultations will be one hour in duration and with either one or both of Family Central consultants and any appropriate experts. Follow-up Consultations can be with any configuration of family members deemed appropriate.

When indicated, we work directly and liaise with health, mental health and educational professionals.

Phone and Skype Consultations

Phone and Skype consultations can be scheduled.

On-Site Consultations

If appropriate, we meet with clients at their office, or at a school or medical setting.


Fees

Consultations will be charged on an hourly basis except for the Initial Consultation, which will be up to 90 minutes, at the same hourly rate.

If we are meeting with clients at their home, office, work or at a school, travel time may need to be charged separately.
