Thank you for expressing interest in this workshop.

What This Is: A 5-Day recorded video series.

Who Is This For?

This is for therapists of all kinds--psychologists, MFTs, counselors, social workers--as well as coaches, mentors and teachers who'd love to expand their knowledge and learn about, and how to assess the early signs and symptoms of early psychosis.

A Safe and Supportive Environment

This is without a doubt one of my main priorities in creating this experience. Creating a safe and supportive environment is going to inspire everyone to share, to help others, to take chances with their own work, and to dare so that you can get the most out of this experience as you can.

What This Is Not

This is not group or individual coaching. This is also not a course about diagnosing, but rather understanding the signs and symptoms of early psychosis. This is not a one-on-one session with myself, as I'll be delivering information to everyone on the call.


This course is priced at $397.

Key Topics We'll Be Covering

During the course of the 5-day video sharing, we'll be covering such topics as:

  • What is psychosis.
  • What is early psychosis.
  • How to distinguish between the two.
  • Risk factors for psychosis and early psychosis.
  • How to determine whether someone is experience symptoms of early psychosis, or psychosis, or schizophrenia.
  • How to talk to and assess *young clients (young kids) to learn about their symptoms.
  • How to talk to young clients about their symptoms of early psychosis without stigmatizing them.
  • How to conduct an assessment with young clients and their caregivers to determine if they’re experience symptoms of early psychosis.
  • Understanding the role of trauma in early psychosis.
  • Care and treatment options for young clients experiencing symptoms of early psychosis.
  • Best practices for working with young clients experiencing early psychosis symptoms, in school.
  • And much more!

*My experience comes from working with young individuals between the ages of 12-25 over a five-year period, and so that is what I will be drawing upon for this course.
