INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY THERAPY
I provide individual, family, and couples counseling by building a trusting therapeutic relationship where you will feel supported throughout the process. Using a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Psychoanalysis, I help build awareness into the issues being presented and teach life long skills to help re-frame thoughts and behaviors to reach your goals.
Areas of Specialty:
Mood Disorders including Anxiety and Depression
School related issues (see School Refusal Treatment below)
Sport and Performance related issues
I provide comprehensive evaluations that will offer my patient and family with a complete picture of the patient's strengths and weakness. Specific recommendations for home, school, and therapy will be included in a written report and feedback session. I have attended hundreds of IEP meetings and am happy to provide direct information to schools at IEP or other case evaluation meetings.
SCHOOL REFUSAL TREATMENT
As the former Director of a School Refusal Program, I provide the patient and family with useful proven tools and coaching. In addition, exposure therapy work is offered to help overcome school anxiety and refusal issues. In home coaching can also be provided.
SPORT AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT
With over 10 years of coaching experience, I work with athletes, musicians, and performers to help obtain consistent and peak performance. Mental strategies are taught to achieve optimal performance.
I use biofeedback technology (think of a video game) which allows patients to visually see how they are in control of their body and mind to obtain the results they desire.
I have been involved in group therapy work since my undergraduate years. Support groups are offered for:
Parents with a loved one in or discharged from a hospital program
Post hospitalization support groups for adolescents and young adults (co-ed)
Child and Adolescent Social Skills
