Anna provides therapeutic visitation for Saratoga, Warren, and Washington County Family Courts, as well as Warren and Washington Department of Social Services. Therapeutic visits are typically for parents/guardians who have lost custody of their child(ren) or have significantly impaired relationships with their child(ren). Anna meets with the child(ren) individually at least once, sometimes twice, to review the therapeutic guidelines, create rules to help the child(ren) feel safe, develop goals, and to establish a therapeutic relationship prior to the first visit with their parent/guardian. Anna also meets with the adult ordered to participate in therapeutic visits once individually to address concerns, review therapeutic guidelines, and develop goals. Once the individual sessions are completed, the therapeutic visits normally take place once a week.
The goals of therapeutic visitation are to help the child(ren) feel comfortable around their parent/guardian, to facilitate significant dialog between the participants, and to work towards repairing and strengthening the relationship. Clinically objective reports are sent to the Court and Law Guardian as needed to provide updates on the therapeutic process. These reports contain factual observations from the visits, and DO NOT contain any recommendations for custody.
Therapeutic visits are 60-minutes long and are $120 for each individual session and $80 per therapeutic visitation session. There is a report-writing fee of $40 per clinical update needed to be sent to the Court and Law Guardian. The adult ordered to participate in the visits is typically responsible for paying, and therapeutic visitation IS NOT billed to insurance.
