Consultation Services

Consultation services offer a preventative, proactive, and enriching way for mental health professionals to gain guidance, support and perspective on clinical cases. Dr. Lipsky specializes in providing consultation services to counseling and mental healthcare professionals from a variety of experience levels (from new graduates to clinicians with decades of experience) and disciplines (including marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, social workers and psychologists).

Professional consultation services help clinicians provide the most effective treatment to clients, while reminding clinicians to be mindful of his/her own personal needs.

Consultation services help clinicians:  

  • Simplify difficult cases
  • Get “unstuck” with resistant/difficult clients

  • Develop more confidence
  • Utilize techniques from multiple therapeutic modalities

As a result, clinicians:

  • Have increased confidence
  • Retain clients longer
  • Gain a deeper understanding of clients
  • Make sessions more focused and meaningful
