My approach centers on looking at your parenting challenge in light of 3 main points and then providing a step-by-step strategy to address it:
Once we share an understanding of these issues, I will recommend a very specific step-by-step plan to resolving the problem. The plan will be psychologically sound, developmentally appropriate and practical. I will make sure it is doable for you as a parent given your life-work situation, temperament, emotional resources and support network. If the plan I suggest does not work (usually within 1-3 weeks) we’ll tweak it or go around the obstacles, reaching our goal from a new angle.
You can consult with me in any of the following ways (or combination thereof), whichever works best for you. Regardless of mode, initial consultations are usually 45 - 60 minutes and follow-ups 5-10 minutes.
This type of consultation involves 3 segments:
A. Observation and Q &A with teachers
B. Joint meeting with you and the teacher/s to recommend a plan of action.
C. Follow up by phone and/or email with you or the teacher/s.
