In addition to offering on-line and in-office therapy, mediation, and coaching, Skye provides adventure based counseling, concierge counseling, and weekend-long intensives for individuals, couples, and families.
Individual, couples, family, and group counseling are offered on-line through Wecounsel's portal or in-office in Dahlonega, Georgia. Skye generally utilizes Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, and Solution-Focused Therapies, but draws from many other therapeutic techniques and theories, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
Adventure Based Counseling utilizes the above-mentioned therapies and incorporates walk-and-talk therapy, paddleboarding, kayaking, rappelling and climbing, and/or camping adventures. While on your individual, couples, or family adventure, you will learn how to listen, communicate effectively, set and achieve your goals as well as feel understood. In this capacity, Skye works with CORE Adventure Group, LLLC. Visit www.coreadventuregroup.com for more information.
Concierge counseling is for clients who require high-level privacy or are home-bound. You will find Skye's commitment to confidentiality is one of the core foundations on which she builds her practice.
Weekend intensives allow individuals, couples or families to work through complex issues over a two-day period. Six hours of counseling as well as activities and "homework" are part of the individualized program Skye will build for you.
Mediation is a process by which two parties use an unaffiliated third party to create an agreeable resolution to their dispute. Sometimes mediation is ordered by the court and sometimes parties decide to mediate on their own in an effort to solve their problems. Skye assists in this process and helps find workable solutions.
Skye coaches parents through the rough waters of child custody utilizing her experience as a child therapist and mediator to assist you in finding developmentally appropriate solutions for your children that will foster relationships with both parents.
