Consultation services are provided in collaboration and cooperation with social services, schools, treatment providers, medical professionals, court services,case managers, and other identified treatment team members. A number of consultation services are offered to support therapeutic change, cooperation, and accountability depending on the clinical needs.

  • A Clinical Case Review with Recommendations is a great option when there is a longstanding case that has had multiple services and numerous providers in place with little success. This is an opportunity to objectively review what has worked and what has not in order to determine best next steps.
  • The goal of the ConsulTeam is to move a case from “stuck” to an engaged family moving toward collaborative and effective solutions. This is a process of weekly team meetings for a period of 1 month (or longer depending on the referred needs of the case) that will provide clinical support and will facilitate the providers and case manager in effectively navigating the needs of children and families who have proven to be especially intensive and/or complex.
    • ConsulTeams can be the next step after an assessment or a Clinical Case Review allowing for the review of results, and a facilitated review and update of the treatment plan, problem solving, and provided support in implementing the team’s plan. ConsulTeams may occur in person or via video conferencing.

Coaching is not psychotherapy. Although coaching and psychotherapy may seem similar since both utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive techniques, they significantly differ. The major differences are in their goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility, making them two entirely different services. Whereas psychotherapy is a health care service offered to identify, diagnose, and treat clinically diagnosable emotional and behavioral conditions, coaching is neither a health care service, nor does coaching treat mental health disorders. Psychotherapy aims to alleviate symptoms, understand the underlying dynamics which create symptoms, change dysfunctional behaviors resulting from these disorders, and help patients develop new strategies to successfully cope with the psychological challenges they will face. By comparison, coaching is focused on the collaborative development and implementation of strategies to help clients reach client-identified goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction. Coaching may address specific personal projects, work/life balance, job performance and satisfaction, or general conditions in the client’s life, business, or profession.

No. Although I am a licensed clinical psychologist, Psychodynamics, LLC does not offer psychotherapy services. If, in the course of our work together, either you or I have reason to believe you may be experiencing an undiagnosed or untreated mental or emotional health problem, I will gladly provide you with a referral for a psychotherapy consultation.
I am currently enrolled in MentorCoach® L.L.C., one of the oldest International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited coach training programs, and one that will enable me to be eligible for certification as a Health and Wellness Coach through the International Coaching Federation. With this, I will have a thorough understanding of evidence-based processes of lifestyle change, as well as lifestyle, health, wellness, and positive psychology applicable to individuals, groups, and organizations. I will also have the training necessary to pursue National Board Certification through the National Board of Medical Examiners in partnership with the International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching (ICHWC).
