Why collaborative?

 

Families who get the most out of coaching understand that the process is not something that is done to them to fix problems but rather a collaborative endeavor that takes effort and openness on the part of everyone participating. 

 

What does the process of coaching entail?

 

Katie's curriculum is a multi-step process that begins with an initial intake session with parents/caregivers to assess the particular needs of the family unit. Some subsequent sessions consist of the whole family and many consist solely of parents/caregivers to focus on learning about child development and which skills would be most helpful to cultivate. Whole-family sessions involve participating in games and art projects in order to practice skills and grow strong bonds as a family.

How many sessions of coaching will help?

 

After the first session with parents or caregivers, Katie will advise each family on how many sessions would be most effective at meeting identified goals. The number of weekly sessions is typically around 20.

 

What factors contribute to coaching being effective?

 

Efficacy depends on a number of factors: 1. Whether we are a good fit for collaboration. 2. The level of commitment the families make to attend weekly sessions and complete homework. 3. The nature of the problems that are getting in the way of healthy family functioning. 

 

Is there a sliding scale of fees?

 

Clients are charged between $75 and $100 for each 50 minute session depending on their financial situation. A credit card on file will be charged at the end of each session. 48-hour cancellation notice is required to avoid getting charged for the full fee. Group fees vary depending on the group. 

 

How is coaching different than therapy?

 

While Katie has a master’s degree in Counseling with a concentration in Child and Family Therapy, she does not diagnose nor treat mental disorders. If she deems that a member or members of a family may be struggling with an untreated mental health issue, she will refer them to qualified and licensed mental health professionals for diagnosis and treatment. Coaching tends to be shorter-term, more goal-oriented and less expensive than most modes of therapy.
