Guiding Bright partners with parents and caregivers to support them in guiding their children through challenges and teaching them life-long strategies that foster independence. We do this through a combination of counseling and consultation.
Guiding Bright utilizes a strength-based, growth-focused approach that considers all aspects of each individual. We use a variety of methodologies based on the needs of each client, with cognitive behavioral interventions and mindfulness as central components. We celebrate neurodiversity and are grateful for neuroplasticity!
AVENUES FOR COUNSELING
Guiding Bright offers 3 avenues for counseling:
Parents/caregivers are the most important people in any child's life. For this reason, parents are required to participate actively in the process. In most situations, sessions take place with parents 2-3 times per month, with the child(en) joining for a family session once per month. We recognize that "family" takes many different forms and we will work with you to determine what will work best for your situation. At times, we do individual counseling with children.
Counseling is time-limited and typically ranges from 3-6 months in duration, although some choose to continue services through the course of the school year. Together, we re-evaluate at the end of each 3 month period to determine if more time is needed. Guiding Bright provides counseling services from September - May. We are available for phone consultation during the summer months.
If you are feeling stressed, stuck and exhausted, it may be time to invest in your family and yourself. We provide the resources, tools, accountability and support you need to help your family move forward.
Guiding Bright chooses not to accept insurance as we do not focus on diagnosis, disorder and illness as is required by most insurance companies. All services (child, parent, family sessions and school meetings) are $150/hr.
Note: Rates may be slightly higher to compensate for mileage
