Dr. Espada provides one-time and ongoing clinical case/treatment consultation to individual clinicians and groups. She particularly consults on cases that despite various clinical interventions have lacked treatment progress or symptom reduction.
Consultation is most often utilized to
- ask questions about specific clients or work situations
- learn and practice new clinical techniques
- assist in evaluation and treatment planning for complex cases
- identify potential obstacles and solutions for cases that lack clinical progress
Consultation can be offered on an ongoing basis for regular support and professional clinical development or on a one-time basis for clinicians who are stuck on a particular case or clinical situation.
Group consultation is available to individuals working together who provide clinical services to clients with complex clinical presentation such as those with complex trauma and/or dissociation. Groups are held with 3-8 persons. The structure of each group is tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of the group.
