Therapeutic supervised visitation (non-therapeutic available)
Therapeutic supervised visitation is similar to a traditional monitored visit between a non-custodial parent and child, except that mental health professional is involved in supervising and guiding the visit between the parent and child. The therapist interacts with the family prior to, during and after the visit to help re-establish and restore the parent-child relationship. The therapist also makes sure that the guidelines set by the Court or referral agency are followed. Dr. Tolbert also specializes in cases involving Parental Alienation or Restrictive Gatekeeping.
Parental reunification therapy.
Widely used in high conflict divorce cases in which the child is being reunified with an absent parent or caregiver. This therapy is utilized to improve or re-establish a healthy caregiver/parent-child relationship in a safe and controlled environment. Please see Therapeutic Supervised Visitations if this doesn’t meet your needs. This form of intervention is often used in cases involving Parental Alienation or Restrictive Gatekeeping. These unique cases typically involve a parent who has alienated their children from a parent or guardian.
