Psychotherapy

Emotional and behavioral health treatment is not easily described in general terms.  It varies depending on many factors, including the personalities of the patient and psychologist, life experiences, developmental stage and patient and/or family goals. There are many different approaches that can be used. Psychotherapy requires an active effort on the patient and/or family’s part as well as a working relationship among participants in which together we identify the issue you and/or your child would like to resolve.  Specific treatment modalities will vary based on the individual needs and goals of each client and family, and may include play therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and/or other forms of therapy. Our first few sessions will involve an evaluation of your and your child’s needs. I take a flexible approach to therapy, often employing multiple modalities to best meet the needs of your child and your family.
