Frequently Asked Questions

1. You offer a free consultation? What is that?
This is either an in person or over the phone consultation where we discuss what brought you to me. This typically lasts under an hour but each family is different. Depending on what you told me in the initial contact, I may have had you fill out a form to provide background information. Sometimes two parents or caregivers have different perspectives on a situation and it is always better to get both.

2. How far are you willing to see clients?
I am willing to travel up to 45 minutes with no additional fee. If a client is more than 45 minutes away, I am very willing to make the trip for a small additional fee. It is important for me to meet parents personally and it always presents an opportunity to see the behavior.

3. Do you carry out consequences yourself when showing parents a strategy?
No. That is strictly for the parents. If someone contacts me to help with their son’s behavior and they want me to physically show them what I am describing I cannot do that. I will speak with you, your child, and anyone else but I will not ever be physically touching your child.

4. Why do you do this?
As cliché as it sounds, I do this because I have seen the stress on parents’ faces as they enter the classroom in the morning. I genuinely believe in the information that I am giving to those that contact me.

5. I would like help with an end of day sleep strategy. Would you come to my home and help walk me through it, even if it’s 8 o’clock at night?
Yes. However I usually do not do evening work on short notice because of prior commitments. Arrangements for this would be made a week in advance.

6. My mother and I are raising my daughter but we have completely different views on how to do it. Would you still be able to help us?
I would ask if you both lived in the same household and what views do you have in common. It is much easier to work with people who are open to the experience. Having different views is fine but in order to implement a strategy it is important to be as consistent as possible. However, as in the case of divorced parents two households may have separate rules.
