Clear Guidance offers both short and long term consulting services. For many family members, what is necessary and most valuable is to receive guidance around specific issues they are currently facing.
Clear Guidance offers both in office consulting as well as on-site, phone or video conferencing meetings.
Consultation can be a one-time event, ongoing coaching or can be provided on an as-needed basis.
Common themes addressed in consultations include:
At times, either family members or fellow professionals can benefit from having a third party or objective assessment of a client or loved one. Care Management services include:
A holistic, comprehensive approach to uncovering medical history, current challenges, diagnoses, care needs, financial status, family dynamics and goals. An assessment is often helpful if you are unsure which level of care is most appropriate.
After the initial assessment, Clear Guidance will present our findings to you about your choices going forward. Her approach is to find a solution that provides the least restrictive environment and promotes the greatest degree of independence.
Once recommendations have been made, family members or fellow professionals can often implement suggestions on their own. However, many find it invaluable to have a partner in this process who is familiar with the providers and/or facilities you are working with.
If you live at a distance, are not a clinician or are unable to provide ongoing oversight yourself, Clear Guidance provides monitoring and management of our client's medical appointments, care needs and overall well being.
Expressive Therapy is an approach to psychotherapy or counseling that may use multiple forms of expression such as visual arts, dance/movement, drama, writing, and music, within the therapeutic process.
What separates expressive therapies from other therapeutic practices is that it often focuses on the mind-body connection, active participation which requires the facilitator ability to provide appropriate programming based on the individuals abilities and limitations and ultimately it encourages self expression.
The overarching goal of expressive therapy at Clear Guidance is to build therapeutic relationships with our clients by engaging and interacting effectively, to improve the overall well-being and quality of life for each participant. Expressive Therapy programs can help reduce stress, reduce isolation, increase cognitive stimulation, regulate emotions, promote self care practices, build self esteem, and even build communication skills, with or without the ability to communicate verbally.
Expressive therapies are for everyone, there is no prerequisite or experience required.
