 Consultation services

Drs. Melanie Bliss and Jaime Blandino currently offer the following professional consultation services for mental health professionals. All services may be scheduled directly with the provider you choose and occur at the Thrive office. 

Therapeutic Supervision & Consultation: Each therapist provides peer supervision or consultation, for therapists-in-training (e.g., post-doctoral fellows requiring supervision for licensure) and more established therapists looking for guidance with their complex and challenging clients.  See each therapist's bio page for more information on specialty areas to determine your best match. The fee for 1 hour of consultation is $125.

Business Consultation & Professional Mentoring: Services may be provided in an individual or group format, depending on what is requested.  Individual fee is $125 per hour; group fees may be negotiated depending on location and number of participants. Consultation services are typically related to:
  • Starting, building, and maintaining a private practice in the mental health profession. This may include anything related to the "business" side of your work, from building your professional identity to marketing your practice to navigating managed care.  A comprehensive "needs checklist" is provided before your appointment in order to customize your session and provide the most targeted and efficient consultation possible. 
  • Negotiating professional and personal "balance" related to major life transitions and stressors such as pregnancy, parenthood, divorce, moving, personal illness, and grief/loss.  Attention is given to ethical/legal considerations as well as issues around self-care, transference and countertransference, and the "person of the therapist." 
  • Working through professional "burnout" or possible career change.
  • Working through the licensure and post-doctoral phase of training (advice about EPPP, obtaining hours for licensure, supervision, getting started in private practice).
  • Consultation may be provided in 1 session or on an "as-needed" basis. An ongoing mentoring relationship may be established as well, which may include both therapy supervision and business coaching. 
If interested in obtaining consultation services at Thrive, please contact either Dr. Bliss or Dr. Blandino directly for more information and to schedule an appointment. You may also schedule a brief phone consultation to discuss your needs, free of charge.
