How do I choose the right educational and therapeutic consultant for my family?
Choosing a consultant is similar to choosing a therapist or physician. You should feel comfortable with and trust your consultant. At DAYA&CO. we offer an initial, free, 30-45 minute meeting to help you determine if we are a good fit for your family.
Can you support families outside of your area?
While we are based in the San Francisco bay area, we are able to provide support to families throughout the U.S. We are also happy to connect you with a consultant in your area if you prefer.
What issues do you see in your consulting practice?
Our clients struggle with a wide range of issues including mood disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, anxiety disorders, self-harm, trauma, addictions, autism and spectrum disorders, developmental delays, learning differences, executive function deficits, ADHD, atypical neurological profiles, school failure, identity struggles, adoption and attachment issues, social skills deficits, disordered eating, divorce, and some medical complications.
What is the age range of clients with whom you work?
At DAYA&CO., we work with young people between the ages of 10 years old and 25 years old. Under the proper circumstances, we can work with clients who are younger or older.
What if my child refuses to participate?
It is not unusual for children, adolescents, and young adults to refuse to participate in the process. We will work with you to create a strategy and/or plan to manage your child’s reluctance or refusal.
What is a wilderness program?
Wilderness programs are outdoor therapeutic programs designed specifically for assessment and intervention. These programs offer clinically sophisticated, short-term treatment in an outdoor setting. There is a range of outdoor therapeutic program models in various locations around the country.
What is your relationship with programs?
DAYA&CO. has no formal or informal contractual relationships with programs. We do not receive payment from programs for referrals or placement. DAYA&CO. is an independent consulting firm; all referrals are based exclusively on client need.
