Consultation Services for Waterloo Region
Clinical consultation can be beneficial when something is out of our scope of practice, when integrating a new therapeutic approach, or simply when we feel stuck within a particular case. I offer consultations to other therapists in the Waterloo Region who are seeking additional support either in private practice or within the non-profit sector.
I have been in the field for 12 years and have worked in the areas of addictions, domestic violence, sexual assault, and mental health. I have an MSW from Wilfrid Laurier University, and have continued with extensive training and education throughout my 12 years of experience. (For a full review of my education and work experience, please click here.)
Possible concerns to be addressed within clinical consultation can include, but are not limited to:
- Vicarious trauma
- Treatment planning
- Development of coping strategies
- Integrating trauma-informed practices
- Recent graduates of social work
- Starting your own private practice
Therapists are humans too, which means that we come with our own set of issues and unresolved past experiences. I am a big believer in doing the very work that we ask of our clients, and consider it an ethical obligation to ensure that we are at our best when supporting others. Therefore, I integrate use of self into my consultations and shine a light on issues that should possibly be addressed and may be affecting your work. However, please note that it is not within my role to provide therapeutic support and would therefore refer you to another counsellor to do this type of work.
