The cost is on a sliding scale for our KAP clients and $25 otherwise.Psychedelic Meditation ConsultationMeditation has been shown both anecdotally and in research to promote wellbeing and serve as a beneficial adjunct to therapy. A consult can serve to start or enhance a current meditation practice.Coaching & Consulting ServicesSome people don’t want to engage in long term therapy but prefer to get more information or guidance on one specific issue. Coaching/consulting is appropriate if a client is simply looking for information or resources. During the initial session we can decide if your concern would be best suited for consulting or therapeutic services. This service is available no matter what the location of the client as telehealth can be utilized.Clinical Supervision & Continuing Ed TrainingsWe have taken the necessary continuing education credits to be clinical supervisors that help other clinicians seeking licensure in Arizona. We have multiple supervisors approved with the AZ Board of Behavioral Health Examiners and we also provide monthly continuing education trainings for or staff and professionals in the community on a variety of topics.DreamworkDreamwork is an excellent accompaniment to receiving psychotherapy, particularly when one has hit a bit of a plateu and is trying to navigate what to work on. Many times, when we engage in the psychotherapeutic process, memories and feelings are awakened that we were previously unaware of which can cause a rise in the vividness of our dream-world.“
