Clinicians provide advice and guidance about a variety of issues related to child development, adjustment issues, and separation/divorce. This includes advice about how to talk to your child about these issues and how to support the children as they manage these changes. This also includes obtaining advice and information as well as services that are likely to meet your family's individual needs.

Unlike counseling or coaching, the consultation process is typically a very short-term intervention that is informed by the clinician's experience, training and knowledge of the literature in this area. It is also a confidential process.
