Thinking of Referring a Client?

Thank you! But please note that we do not provide direct therapy to children and adolescents. We specialize in working with their parents instead!

SPACE is a form of applied NVR, developed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at Yale University. Jacinta, Mike, and Chris combined their expertise in psychology, education, (social-) language, and counselling into SPACE Training programs. This focus now includes psychoeducation, as well as expert guidance for the two essential SPACE Treatment components: supports and accommodations.

SPACE Training can be done next to any psychotherapy or counselling sessions since the focus is on teaching parents (or other caregivers) how to change the home environment to be more supportive and less accommodating. Besides knowledge of anxiety, its impact, the underlying neuropsychological principles of processing language and responding under stress, Jacinta, Mike, and Chris also focus on improving the home climate by teaching parents about positive parenting. 

Due to ethical constrictions, we cannot and will not provide a commission for made referrals in any form.

We do not initiate any cold calls. If after you and I determine that SPACE Training would be a good option for the parents (or caregivers) of your client, let’s talk to them together through web conferencing so we can focus on strengthen the combined therapeutic relationship.
