As experienced psychologists, we provide evidenced-based treatment to both children and adults, focused on helping manage symptoms and build skills to take with you long after treatment ends. Treatment is collaborative and aimed at providing you or your child with the tools and skills needed to manage the difficulties you may be facing.
Services include individual (both children and adults), family, and couples’ therapy. In addition, parenting skills training is offered to help in managing difficult behavior in children.
We specialize in evidenced-based treatments including:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Treatment may address:
Depression in children and adults
Anxiety in children and adults
Family or couples issues
Behavioral Problems in children
ADHD symptom management
Adjustment Issues in children and adults
Social skills deficits
What to Expect:
The first session is a comprehensive assessment and typically lasts 60-90 minutes. This includes a clinical interview where medical, psychological, social, vocational, and educational history is discussed and your presenting concerns. In addition, any of your questions and concerns are addressed.
Following the initial session, you and your psychologist will discuss and agree upon treatment goals.
How many sessions you attend per week and how long treatment will last depends on the goals you and your psychologist set and the progress you are making throughout treatment. Treatment goals and progress will be discussed regularly to monitor your treatment’s effectiveness and success.
During treatment you may be assigned “homework.” These are goals for you to work on between your appointments in order for you to practice skills and work toward goals in your everyday life. While the time you spend with your psychologist in a treatment session is important, it is also important for you to gain the skills and confidence you can use outside of the treatment room, allowing you to eventually “take the reigns.” Remember, the goal of therapy is to eventually not need it anymore!
Following the completion of treatment, you may periodically require or want a “booster session” to review previously learned skills or work through a short-term issue, requiring only a few sessions. These sessions can be very helpful in long-term maintenance of your well-being.
