SERVICES

Individual Therapy​​

 

I provide therapeutic services to children, adolescents, teens, and adults. Therapy may be appropriate for any of a number of issues; my areas of expertise are listed below. In individual sessions, a safe working relationship can be the context in which goals can be examined and reached.

 

 

Family Therapy

​​

By incorporating members of the family in therapy sessions, we can formulate supports, interventions, and at-home strategies in order to reach identified goals. Sometimes this focuses on helping a specific child improve behavior, social skills, compliance, or manage difficult emotions. Other times the ‘problem’ is not centered on a family member, but is more about difficult relationships or issues with communication. Family therapy provides a safe and effective mode of treatment to improve these issues.

 

 

Group Therapy

​​

Groups are an excellent way to address certain concerns, growth areas, or issues. By participating in a group, a teen or child has the opportunity to learn from other people’s experiences, as well as their own. They are able to form new ideas, and practice concrete skills in a safe and fun environment. Finally, for some patients, participation in a group helps to de-stigmatize their experiences, since they are able to identify with peers.

 

 

Areas of Specialty

 

Patients' concerns do not always fall into a convenient category. If you are wondering if I am a good fit for your referral question, but are not sure, feel free to contact me to discuss the matter prior to scheduling an intake appointment. Issues that I commonly treat include:
