School Consultation and Observation

When working with adolescents, oftentimes it is helpful for the schools to be consulted. This is for 2 reasons:  first, because the school has important information about how a child is behaving and performing academically and with peers.  Secondly, schools are not mental health professionals.  Many times they are not aware of how to support children who are working through emotional or psychological problems.  I am available to consult with schools, provide education to school staff on site and to perform observations at the school, if needed.
